NEW QUAY, Wales, November 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

New Quay's old cottage restaurant The Port of Call has been taken over by new management. After being run by the same owner for over thirty years it has now been sold and internally refurbished to a very high contemporary standard. The aged menu has had a shake up too and now focuses upon no nonsense wholesome food cooked fresh to order.

New proprietors Mel and Jared Newman have injected a new lease of life into the business following a closed period for complete refurbishment. After an extended travelling work life through Asia they have settled in the beautiful harbor village of New Quay, West Wales. When asked how New Quay compares to travelling Asia Mel said: "New Quay has a beautiful rugged coast line with visible mountain ranges and playful dolphins in the bay. It's as stunning as the Chinese Karst mountains." The new Port of Call offers a relaxed dining experience in a modern and friendly environment. Dinners can expect a warm and proud welcome from Mel who will happily make time to chat about New Quay and the restaurant's heritage including playing host to actors Paul Schofield and Richard Burton during the 50's.

The revived menu has been developed to offer something for everyone with an emphasis on simple unassuming meals sourced from local suppliers. Chef and previous engineering lecturer Jared said: "I like to offer the type of meals I enjoy to eat, unpretentious hearty portions."

The Port of Call is experiencing a reputation boom since the take over with an outstanding climb in rankings on Trip Advisor from 18 of 23 to 3rd , overtaking many other long established restaurants in the area. Customer comments include "Excellent value, lovely ambiance," "very welcoming and amazing with the kids" and "London class at super quality."

Book now for Christmas, Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve and private parties. Open for breakfast, lunch and evening meals during peak season. Licensed bar and restaurant.
