“Great pub in a great location....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Enjoyed our regular visits to the Pheonix when staying locally. Service was always spot on, with the team always trying to accomodate our large party. The food was great, with a varied menu and wide range of specials...,,well worth a visit.

“We could have moved in!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

What a find! Watergate Bay is a beautiful bay about 15 minutes away from the less than beautiful main strip in Newquay. After a blustery walk on the beach we walked into a relaxed beach bar atmosphere with great views and good food. Nachos shared to start, calamari & thai mussels (specials) and kiddies pasta plus drinks less than £50. Acoustic music provided by a talented young chap called Chris Davis(?).

“Great Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We've visited The Pheonix before - it's great to sit outside and overlook the sea.

The food is always good quality and quantity and real value for money.

“Great British Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Been coming here for years , best place in the area to have a great pint , enjoy the sunset meet great people , listen to music and enjoy good food. Everyone is welcome which is what makes the atmosphere so good. Came back to the UK for a quick visit and managed to grab a couple of days in Cornwall on Bank Holiday so we popped and had some great sea food and were happy to see the smiley friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere still going strong.
