This little pub/restaurant is just off port beach and is ideal to go into after a day on the beach. Reasonable prices and very good food. I would recommend the homemade bbq ribs. The only complaint i would have is the length of time we had to wait for our food. Overall very good

We visited twice for dinner. On the first visit we were lucky enough to sit outdoors and the views over the beach were amazing. You can sit and have a drink and watch the kids enjoying the beach within easy reach. The food is good value with huge portions and plenty for the kids to choose from. Only downside is... More

Awful - such a shame. Unless you like bright blue washed driftwood paint and sticky carpets please dont bother. Such a shame because the location is great

We had a family lunch at Mermaid Inn after few hours spent on the beach, the place serves quality food, products are fresh and prices are decent. We all enjoyed our meals and can only recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for good lunch spot on the beach.

Food was great! Good quality and reasonable prices with lovely beach front views. Friendly atmosphere and although it was busy didn't have to wait that long. Definitely recommend as Porth beach is lovely and not as busy as Newquay town centre.

This is really a perfect location, personally haven't been to a pub/restaurant this close to the beach in the UK before. It is quite literally on Porth Beach. We ate here late afternoon and got served pretty quickly - the chilli has a nice kick to it but also the portion was huge! Lovely place to sit outside and watch... More

Really nice food at this pub, relaxed atmosphere and fantastic location right on Porth beach. Must book in peak season so you can get a table.
