Best meal we've had in Cornwall- absolutely delicious. Fresh, seasonal produce. Great 'Inbetween' menu for slightly older kids too (7 and 9). Friendly and helpful staff (service slowed down once it got busier but not too bad) We will definitely go back next summer.

We had a small double which was nicely decorated.Left the blind up and got woken by the sunrise which was just what we were hoping (room1)? Excellent location for walking. Dinner was all good although whiney children in restaurant spoilt the ambiance a bit at first. Very relaxed and informal break.

we live in Cornwall so on a drive out we called in for a drink, i had a glass of wine and so did my friend and when he went to pay for it, it cost £13.00 for 2x125mls of Sauvignon Blanc Blooming Heck the prices were horrendous, and at these prices it equates to £39 per bottle,,no wonder people...

I really can't fault this place. The food was beautiful, a bit on the pricey side, but I'm happy to pay it if it ticks all the boxes....which it did. Good service, nice surroundings, not too stuffy, good beer and good wine. What else do you need :)

I've been meaning to go here for years so was delighted when they had a room free for a Saturday night - and even more delighted we could stay just for one night rather than a minimum of two. The room (number 7 with a sea view) was decorated beautifully and was super comfy with a ginormous bed, lovely tea... More

About 3 years ago we visited The Old Coastguard. It was marvelous. This year they where fully booked, and we decided to try The Gurnards Head. After all, this is where it all started. The place is amazing, as it is located just by the coast, and the view is wonderful. That is when you go for a walk. Otherwise... More

We walked from The Gurnards Head to Zennor along the cliff path and back via the road, which took 2 hours and then enjoyed a lovely lunch in the restaurant. Food and service were excellent. 3 course set menu was very good value as was the main menu with fish and seafood a real draw. Delicious food after a great... More

We spent the first 2 nights of our honeymoon here- comfortable room (albeit small and quite basic and we were warned the shower might not work but was actually fine), very relaxed pub atmosphere with amazing food (we had breakfast and dinner). The location is remote and landscape rugged and moor-ish- we really enjoyed walking coastal paths and exploring local... More

Fabulous meal. My husband and I took our 2 grown up children for a meal here whilst spending a week's holiday in St Ives. It had been recommended to us and we weren't at all disappointed. My children are still raving about the food and we are thinking of taking a short break there maybe in the spring. We will... More

Well! What can I say? Excellent position for a hostelry set in beautiful countryside, next to the sea, with stunning cliff walks. But this is much more than just your standard hostelry; The hotel is warm and welcoming, the staff are all helpful and pleasant and the food is first rate... An excellent start or end to a pleasant cliff... More
