Chic and contemporary, The Bay Bar is a fusion of sophistication and fun. A welcoming venue as equally suited for a morning coffee whilst overlooking the breakers at Fistral Beach, Newquay as it is to a leisurely lunch or evening cocktail. We are open from 10am in the morning and serve food until 9pm and close 11.30pm.Situated at the south end of the world famous Fistral Beach, the Bay Bar benefits from astounding Atlantic views. Just as beautiful on a blustery winters day when you can curl up on the comfy chairs and enjoy a hot chocolate with friends as it is on a scorching summer's day when a jug of Pimms is a must! A daily food menu operates, offering a range of light bites to main meals. A sumptuous Sunday lunch is also available every week.

Friendly and relaxing

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 have visited this bar many times when staying at the hotel, using the spa or attending events and have never been disappointed in nearly 10 years! This visit was no exception, having booked some spa treatments in the hotel, my step daughter and I arranged to meet my husband and step son here after they had finished surfing at... More

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! :)

All of the staff were very friendly and chatty always asking if we require anything .Great place to chillax and wave... More

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. Obviously it decided to chuck it down. We saw a sign saying Non residents... More

Take care at the bar, if you order a glass of wine, the hotel policy seems to be to automatically give you the largest size glass of the most expensive bottle. Maybe the staff need more training to offer options, but If this is a sly way to make the most out of each guest, it is not very nice.... More
