Please note, this review was for Pickford's bar. It has since changed to "Sid's". I have not been there since this change. This is a great cafe and bar. This venue has long has some of the best views in Wales from its terrace but has historically suffered from poor execution. A recent change of ownership/management has made some very welcome changes. The service is now excellent, the food is fantastic and there is a good selection of beers and other drinks. We have eaten there as many time as the lockdowns have allowed and will be going there again . Don't have any experience of the rooms on offer but the cafe internal decor has been much improved. Long may it continue!

Delicious breakfast for 6 of us, including a toddler. Food was tasty and presented well. Staff very friendly and efficient even though it was very busy and of course the views of the seafront were wonderful (sun was shining!). Thanks to all. Be back soon.

I stumbled across Sid's when I arrived in Penarth on New years weekend to find out my original accom had cancelled my booking.In torrential rain and feeling very down trodden with all accommodation fully booked I waked into Sid's restaurant and asked if they possibly had a room.All I can say is Sid could not have been more accommodating, he had a room for the night. Unfortunately I was too late to enjoy dinner in his restaurant however he recommend some great places locally.The room was great, tea/ coffee facilities, ensuite bathroom, had a very comfortable bed, was clean tidy and had a sea view.Breakfast in Sid's, was fantastic. There's lots of options and cater for GF and vegetarian.I highly recommend Sid's for food and accommodation. It's a fantastic location, I will happily stay here again.Thanks Sid for all your help!

Thank you for a wonderful evening. We decided to go for a swim on the pier and decided to walk over to have a glass of wine for my mother's birthday. They came out with small Welsh cakes with a candle on top and sang happy birthday to her.A simply lovely gesture to all of us and we will be coming back again for the lovely food, drink and charming atmosphere. The sea view is beautiful at night with the rolling waves crashing against in the distance.A must try if you decide to go swimming or want a delicious meal with a gorgeous view.

Great bit of news today while having some beautiful food with my wife. As from 3rd October 2023 this wonderful eating place is opening from 9am in the morning till 9pm. A great place to come for an evening drink and some nibbles to eat. We wish you all the very best in your exciting new venture. Come on everyone let's use it and not loose it. Roll on October we can't wait. The fish is to die for.

Clean, nicely decorated, Welcomed by staff on entrance. Service great. Food very tasty. Toilets very clean. Great views of bay. Fair prices. (Only downside was other elderly female customer who were seated after us, behind us talkly incessantly and too loud for us to ignore about her love life (!), family issues, other private things we didn't want to hear etc.... sigh.) Otherwise, had a lovely lunch. Thank you.
