My daughter and I had arrived on a misty cool morning to find Blue Bar opened at 1000. It being 940 we went for a stroll up the cliff and sat with the awesome scenery. We returned after half an hour or so to find several people had beaten us into the Bar to enjoy the early soul and R... read more

You cannot fault the location with an unspoilt view of the beach and sea. The food is likeable to pub grub, no frills and of average price. We had lunch, I had the burger and my husband had chilli. The burger was served with chips and was generally ok. My husband reports that the chilli was too rich and quite... More

Such a cool vibe to this beach restaurant, great menu and prices were very competitive given it is is such an amazing setting. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Loved the little window alcoves but even the main restaurant is a cool and welcoming space on a hot day.

Just had a meal here very nice even though they were very very busy parking free after 17.00hrs. Looks like its very busy all the time especially during the summer. Staff very polite

We used to love to come here for a meal or cup of coffee or a beer or two to watch the sun set, but sadly it seems they have taken their eye off the ball and things have gone steadily down hill. We ate here not so long ago - fish and chips were greasy, and the burger very... More

I drank in here a couple of times. The staff are friendly and the bar is on the beach. Lovely views. I didn't eat there but some friends did and said it was very nice. I would go again if down in the area again

If you are going to open all day then should have a good selection of food available. Arrived at 5.30pm and ordered two dishes from the specials board only to then be told that these were sold out! Too much sauce with mussels and mostly cream, The Hake dish had far too many bravatas potatoes, which did not taste fresh... More

We have many mini breaks in cornwall and one place that we can never resist visiting is this beach Bar. Views of the Atlantic are breathtaking in every season, outside tables and inside bay window areas to take in the scenery if your lucky to nab one,they seat approx 4-6 people and are very cosy. Good choice of beers wines... More

My boyfriend and I are walking the Cornish coastal path at the moment. We've eaten all sorts along the way but nothing - not even our pricey meal at Jamie Oliver's fifteen a few days back - had been this good. Creative, ethical, bold and ridiculously tasty - all at pub prices. And the staff were incredibly friendly too. It... More
