Me and my local friend decided to pop in for a pint, we was asked for our I.ds and the barman rudely snatched the cards from our hands then began to talk down to us in a very impolite manner referring us as kids after inspecting our ages which were 20 and 21. After coming back for next beer a... More

We absolutely love this pub/restaurant. It has good views of the sea/beach. Outdoor area is good to sit and look out to sea, watch the sun set. Food is also very good. Prices are good to. This is the first pub we always visit when in Newquay for the view.

Last week, me and my boyfriend stayed in the hotel above! (Very lovely stay). We came downstairs for dinner on the night of our arrival! The menu in the rooms looked very good and of a high standard. However, I wouldn't pay that much again if it's not table service and I think the windows need a clean as covered... More

We are local and visited here often. They have spoilt the atmosphere in a fabulous location. There is knowhere to have a quiet chat due to speakers have been put up all over the place blasting out football and the like from televisions including a massive screen in the side room. This place has been ruined because of all this.... More

We call into the steam bar every day whilst with family who own an hotel in Newquay so the Steam Bar is not new to me. This time we were treated very rudely by a certain member of staff who was very rude and very unhelpful. It was brought to the managers attention as we should not be treated like... More

A nice bar with friendly and efficient bar staff. Good value bar meals with generous portions Standard pub fare - nothing special in terms of the menu : but what is on offer is a good value and well cooked meal. Recommended.
