Description: 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.

“Cocktails!!!! Then some food......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

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 welcome and pegged it up the drive way. We asked at reception if we could pop in and have a drink until the rain stopped and the receptionist, Charlie I think, said it would be no probs, have a cocktail! so we did.
There was a Jazz Duo playing, amazing. Ordered some drinks, amazing French guy, Albert? I think, twisted our arm for a cocktail....fantastic! The rest is history!
From start to finish (much, much later) a brilliant time. Ordered food, burger and hotdog, both were gorgeous to look at and delicious. Spent the whole night chatting to the bar staff as they plied us with ever more interesting drinks, well done Justin for managing such an eclectic, but well rounded team.

“Take care at the bar”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

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. As a local, I won't be going back.

“Perfect evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

What fantastic views! Service was excellent and the food was very good. As a vegetarian I don't always get a very good choice but there was ample to choose from on the menu.
