Friendly pub serving good good

This is a friendly pub in the centre of Portreath. The food was home cooked and delicious. The pub itself is situated on the waterfront by the harbour but unfortunately the the harbour is not as scenic as it sounds. It smells at low tide and the area is shabby and grubby. The pub is well kept... read more

Myself and my wife and children came here for food and have to say, it was very good, portion sizes were brilliant and very filling at a very affordable price (4 meals, 4 drinks, just over £30). If you are in Portreath, please do visit this pub

Once again we have visited the Waterfront Inn on our yearly pilgrimage, this time under new management, we can honestly say that this has been the best meal we have ever had here. All 4 of our different meals were cooked to perfection,and the puddings were good as well.

I enjoyed a fresh and tasty crab salad with not even the hint of a shell. That's quality! My wife's seabass was also excellent but the two (vegetarian dishes) pasta with butternut squash were a little dry. The four meals ordered for adults arrived before those for children aged 3, 5 & 8 which is unusual to say the least.... More

We came for lunch on a busy August Saturday afternoon and left absolutely satisfied. I ordered a crab salad which was both fresh and delicious, my husband ordered scampi which was polished off with relish and my son ordered a huge cheese beef burger and nothing was left! A good pub overlooking the harbour quiet beach - perfect for families... More

We had two edible appetizers..the crab salad which had a good amount of fresh crab and the split pea soup which was OK. The bread that came with it was nice. Entrees....god...she had the lasagna...horrible, inedible. I had the chicken with mozzarella and parmesan pasta. Thought I was getting chicken parm. Lol. Short version..chunks of chicken with bland tomato sauce... More

This restaurant is, indeed on the waterfront, behind a high wall which completely obscures the water! The food was average and service slow.

We try and got to this pub every year we go to Cornwall, lovely atmosphere great surroundings if you park in the Car Park you need a Parking badge from the Pub, otherwise you will get a parking ticket, good menu, and a specials board, food has been excellent regardless what we have eaten.
