One of the nicest places I've ever been to in Cornwall

I have been here twice now. It is a real diamond find. If the sun is out there is nowhere better to relax and chill out than the Blue Bar. However, if it is a nice day get there early or you will find standing room only.

We went here for lunch and a walk on the beach. It was a beautiful early spring day, a little chilly but warm enough in the sun to sit outside with a pint. We had probably the best burger with cheese we have had for a long time, nice prepared, no fat or grease and lovely homemade chips for a... More

Stopped here for lunch, good service, buzzy atmosphere. Great view of beach. Very popular place. Food was nice, good choice on menu. Not for fine diners though!

Love this place and after a walk on the beach with the dog, promised my husband a brunch at the Blue. Instead of their customary bacon sarnie or scrambled egg, their new menu comprised 'maple and chipotle chilli beans' or 'streaky bacon on a waffle'. Not what either of us had in mind so just settled for a coffee. We... More

Been here a few times, although never at peak season as I imagine it's absolutely rammed. Try and get a table by the window and you'll have a lovely view of the sea. The food is good and probably properly priced. The beer is also good has a decent selection.

We visited the Blue Beach Bar in the afternoon on New Years Eve. Although busy there were plenty of tables available. Unfortunately the staff had failed to clear and clean these tables, some of which were quite dirty with used serviettes still on them. The views of the coast from here are quite outstanding, that is if you can see... More

We have frequented the Blue Bar quite a few times and the food has always been outstanding, although a little overpriced. I guess the price of the menu is inflated due to the wonderful views of Porthtowan beach from the bar. On arrival, we managed to obtain one of the bay seats. If you are going there, these are the...

This bar gives Porthtowan the whole package and has the best position to enjoy the view and sun (or rain) all day long. Fab concept well executed! Chilli nachos and dirty chips get our vote..
