This is a great pub which is located next to Holywell bay beach and within walking distance of most caravan sites within Holywell. As we visited last Friday 24th April it was rather quiet however we were welcomed by friendly staff. The pub itself is nicely furnished with plenty of seating however I can imagine it's very busy in high... More

I have visited Holywell Bay for many years ( mainly off-season - I am and have been involved in this trade for more years than I care to remember!!) and have only frequented St Pirans Inn on a few occasions. This time however it left more than a favourable impression ( in many ways and thanks to Jilly) who is... More

Arrived at the car park looking to sit and have a nice lunch, the guy in the car park came across and very bossily asked what we wanted, we said to eat, to which his reply was "the pub then" . He then gave me a ticket with an hour on it and said " if you want more you'll... More

We are so sorry that you had a bad experience in our car park. I am not sure how this occurred as we do not limit eating times to 1 hour. We issue a ticket which is valid for the entire time that you are in the pub grounds. If you decide to go to the beach for a walk... More

St Pirans is in a scenic location on the beautiful beach at Holywell bay along the Coastal path. To reach the Inn you have a pretty walk through the sand dunes that take you up and along side the beach which leads you to the Inn. The four of us had booked 2 of the three rooms which were comfortable... More

Dear reviewer, Firstly, just want to say it was lovely to meet you and welcome you as guests at our Inn. Just picking up on the kettle comment, the kettle is kept on the shelf behind the door, so perhaps you missed it? It's a shame you didn't mention it as we could have pointed you in the right direction.... More

I have never visited this pub before but on our Easter trip to Perrenporth we did the coastal walk and stumbled on it. The first time we ate lunch, coconut prawns for me and a burger for my partner. It was so good we decided to return a day later for dinner. I had a homemade fish pie, and I... More

Great food, well presented and really lovely staff. We used it for three days it was our local. The wife love it, the mother-in -law loved it. It is also pet friendly so the Dog loved it. It is a nice sized inn right by the sea, what more could you want.

I stayed at St Pirans Inn while in business in the area and found it very friendly. My room looked over the sea and the sand dunes and had everything you would expect. The bed was very comfortable and beyond anything else I had a quiet un disturbed night. The food is excellent and again the staff were very friendly... More

Visited the pub on several occasions during our recent stay in Holywell Bay. Popped in for a drink originally but felt so welcome that we made several return visits with consistent service and standards. Loved the food. This pub is worth the visit and cannot speak highly enough of it. It has also influenced our repeat booking of accommodation regarding... More

My mother wrote a review below and I find it quite disgusting that your comment back accuses me of misunderstanding. I most definitely did not misunderstand.

Caroline, I am not about to get into a poison pen war with you regarding a cup of tea!!!
