One of the best seafront pubs in the UK, I reckon. Perfect for sunset chilling and enjoying life! Here is the view! The upper terrace view is astounding! Great drinks. Very friendly staff.

Haven't frequented Fairway Buoy innyears, tends to be a tourist haunt but we were in the village to watchbthe massive storm surge, and high tide so thought we'd warm up with a coffee.its was a little tight for space but we were served promptly and managed to snag the front seats as a family left. A great view, warm and pleasant. What's notnto love? Gave the food 5 stars as they allow you to bring chips in from the fantastic chippie just around the corner. Never tried the Fairway buoys offerings. Coffee was nice and well finished. There are benches out front just set back from the promenade for sunny days.

Great bar, reasonable price, best views, incredible sunsets. Great place to be with friends. The Fairway Buoy is the perfect beach bar. Located on the promenade at Westward Ho! and showcasing stunning views over the beach and the spectacular Atlantic rollers. Watch the famous sunset over Lundy Island from the comfort of the balcony with a refreshing drink in hand.

Stopped for a coffee, stunning views over the water, ordered coffee and cakes via the qr code, order took over 20mins, bar not busy, when delivered the cake order was wrong, no apologies but replaced cake. Quality of cake very poor, obviously not homemade and dry. On leaving asked for some fresh water for our dogs, staff member rudely replied they would get it, but they didn t have 2 pairs of hands! Would not visit again

A bar right on the seafront, we visited on a warm Friday evening when it was lively with a DJ playing club music. Big age range from young children to grandparents. Bars had long queues and prices varied depending on who severed you!! Great to watch sun set with a drink in hand.
