I visited F&B last week to do a couple of dives. It is a great set up for diving: there are good bedrooms, a pub, restaurant, a wet area for dive briefs etc, and a dive school - all in the same building - and the dive boat is moored a couple of minutes away. The business (pub / restaurant / dive school) is under new management - as of late last year - and Alex and Sue seem to have a great vision for building their dive school / B&B / pub to a very high standard.
From the outset, Alex, Sue and Lee were very helpful on the phone to make sure all was set up for our trip, and we could do the kind of diving we were after. We arrived late at night (after 10pm), and were shown our room. The rooms have recently been redeocrated and are simply and tastefully decorated. Decent curry house down the road for dinner, and then good breakfast in the morning.
Wet room works well as a briefing room / classroom (particularly if we had been a larger group).
Changing roomms and dive shop at the bottom of the pub lead out to a car park, and then a short walk in kit to the jetty. All very easy.
Diving was great - skipper was knowledgable, friendly and safe. Chocolate and hot drink after surfacing.
Back after the first dive for tea and sandwiches etc at F&B. The team have great local dive site knowledge - with plans / maps of the wrecks etc. Air fills / nitrox etc on site.
Sadly time did not allow us to sample the pub!
Overall, highly recommended. Really friendly set up, catering for all levels of diver, and very good £ value. Suited our needs really well, and I imgine would be great for club trips. They have planned a busy schedule going into the season - we will be back !!
