Stopped by for brunch. Great menu and very friendly, helpful staff. The sun was shining and we all enjoyed our food and drink. I would recommend to others.

Arrived here as was in the vicinity and sat at a table. After deciding what I wanted I went up to the bar to order. The staff looked at me in disgust that I had approached the bar and was confused as to why I was there. I said I wanted to order and they were still a little baffled.... More

Called in for lunch after a long walk, sat outside overlooking the harbour. Meals were ok but nothing to write home about, chips very pale and uninviting although the fish was good. Because we ate outside we were surrounded by dogs, children and smokers, this is obviously fine for some people but it was somewhat off putting to have a... More

Came in on the off chance they had a table free....they managed to squeeze us in! Wasn't keen at first.....doesn't seem to be able to decide if it's a cafe or restaurant!? Bit dated in decor, tables, cutlery etc! And no music playing in the background which would have been nice. But the service was lovely and we both had... More

Had an early roast beef Sunday lunch. Good selection of vegs and generous portion size. We were bought the veg and potatoes to help ourselves which meant the more hungrier of us could finish the leftovers! Good service and polite staff

We have eaten here too many times to count. Perfectly placed at the onset of Newquay Harbour with both outdoors and indoor options to eat, the food here is great. Service is better than average and cost very reasonable too. This is a perfect spot on a summer day (or rainy for that matter) to enjoy a snack with a... More

Stopped at the Old Watchhouse for lunch and the menu looked really appetizing and the food we ate satisfied our food palate. The Caramel caffe latte is something that one should definitely have. Food was also great and there are enough choices for the vegetarians also. I would recommend a visit for anyone who wants to have a good grub... More
