This beautiful place – a magnet for surfers and tourists in summer – was fortunately only pleasantly populated on our visit: a sunny day in early March. This was a lunch stop on our day’s walk, and thoroughly enjoyed. We even ate outside, looking over the beach – I had a very good round of tuna mayo sandwiches, but hubbie... More

We have been coming here over the years when we visit but this time has been the worst yet. Bad customer service, extremely rude bar woman who also got our order wrong then said we ordered it wrong and made us pay £1 extra and had to wait 20minutes for the toasty to arrive even though we were the only...

We would never go back to this place - even if you paid us to. The customer service was shocking - such rude staff it was almost laughable (but not because we were made so angry by it all!!) The food was very average and very over-priced for what you actually get and considering we had to wait about 40... More

Visited in time to watch the sunset and we managed to get a seat by the window - this was pretty impressive with a great view. I thought the food was OK(ish) but expensive. Mushroom stroganoff, lasagne & chips plus a couple of drinks (imho) shouldn't come to £27.35. Killer question - would I go back? Probably not.

A perfect setting. The scenery was idyllic and a lovely place to drink and eat. The views from the front window really are great, and it's a good place to start a walk. The dining experience was generally OK. At £10 a head, however, I would have expected better. The meat I believed wasn't of a very high grade, particularly... More

Ate here twice during our mid week stay in Crackington, the staff were excellent and the food was fine, standard pub grub, fish and chips, steak, scampi, curry etc and nice puddings. Excellent views over the bay, go early to grab a window seat! Décor was probably a bit tired but if anything it added to the quaintness of the... More

We have eaten there several times in the past and had a lovely meal there today on our wedding anniversary. My wife had the salmon steak and I had the chicken curry both were great and from the selection of the day board. Prices were reasonable but how a small tonic can be £3.20 I don't know and only 60p... More

We stayed in the b&b (pub) whilst down in Cornwall for one night. We paid £20 extra to upgrade to the room with a balcony and ensuite. And boy was it worth it! The balcony has views over Crackington Haven beach and you could sit out there all day. In regards to the room, it was clean and the bed... More

The Coombe Barton Inn is right next to the beach. It has a large restaurant, pool table for adults, dart board and great views. I went with no idea of what it would be like. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. We got to watch the sunset from the pub. The food appeared a little pricey, until I... More

Lovely food and very good service - but definitely needs a refurb as seating and carpets are badly stained and shabby - shame as a lovely pub and beautiful location with magnificent views especially at sunset -Wow!
