Large family friendly pub, kids welcome with a play area outside plus table football and table tennis to keep them entertained. Beautiful views of the sea, beaches and harbour from the beer garden. The food is pretty good for a pub. We went several times while on holiday in newquay and would go back next time we visit.

So... staint Austell brewery chain pub with typical frozen food. McDonald's for adults. I had the special chicken chorizo thing with chunky chips no idea why but didn't fancy the menu things. I'm always wary of chicken that is oozing water and has those fake burnt black lines on it.... say no more. Good points service and staff excellent.

We went back here after having a really good Sunday lunch. We weren't disappointed - the steak was really good too. Only complaint is that the main meals are so generous that we didn't have room for pudding- and they looked amazing. It was very busy so we had to wait a while for the food but we were warned...

We have been visiting this place as a family for holiday lunches twice or three times over a week long visit. Service is friendly, polite and fairly speedy. The menu is largely crowdpleasers, but with 3 or 4 specials worth checking. I had an enormous Sunday roast pork with truely excellent roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese. Nice Yorkshire pudding, parsnips,... More

This is arguably the best view in Newquay. It overlooks Great Western beach and towards the harbour & the headland. The food we've had there has always been at a great level with very generous portions. We usually go for the specials as they are normally locally caught fish. The staff are always very helpful and friendly. They have Sky... More

Beautiful view, beautiful food, friendly staff! Perfect! We went on steak night so bit of a wait for food but well worth it when it arrived, and the kids meals were lovely too (although at £5 each with no drink or pudding perhaps a little pricey)

Called in for a drink at 10.30 pm on our walk back to our hotel. We were told that they shut the bar at 11 pm prior to serving us - which was no problem as we had only called in for a drink on our way back to our own hotel. What they didn't explain was that at 11.10... More
