This is a fantastic place to go, the food is excellent and they make a mean cocktail too. The best thing is the staff, they make you feel right at home, the best service you could ask for and more :)

I loved the oversized chairs and relaxed atmosphere. It could be a little chilly in the evenings so I would recommend taking a jumper or jacket with you.

We enjoyed an afternoon tea for two in the Bay Bar. The bar area is modern, clean and spacious. The staff were really friendly and helpful, even replacing the egg sandwiches from our afternoon tea with another selection when we said neither of us liked egg. The afternoon tea was delicious and great value, considering the quantity and quality of... More

Popped in with friends after a lovely walk was served up some spectacular cocktails by the lovely Emily and Bethany they certainly make a fantastic team! Lovely atmosphere, well organised and generally a lovely little spot to go and chill out, have a chat and generally feel welcomed, like a home from home! Good luck on your travels Emily! :)

Firstly have to say the Bay Bar is a bit of a hidden gem. We were on our way to The Lewinnik, recommended by at least 3 taxi drivers during our stay in Newquay, deciding to make the most of surprisingly pleasant day we were walking.
