We first visited here 2 weeks ago for lunch and the beach was extremely busy but thankfully there was loads of seating so we weren't fighting for a table. The food was good and it was a nice, relaxed place, right on the beach so the views were fab. I also went back here last night to see a live... More

A Great place to watch the children play on the beach and the world go by as the day comes to a close. I would think a fantastic venue for some live music so hopefully we will catch some

Disgusting venue, filthy, & so un-hygienic we had to clean the table ourselves. Full of dogs, again how unhygienic, my family ate although the order was wrong & I got coke instead of Diet Coke. I didn't eat because it was so filthy didn't want to risk it. Would advise avoiding this venue.

The food at this place is a bit pricey compared to other places in town, however you are paying for good quality food and that amazing view

This is great for a well earned beer after a day in the surf. It has a real holiday atmosphere and it's very quick to get served. The prices are more expensive than the town but you're paying for the location. The sunset across the bay is amazing so this is as good a place to enjoy it.

I went to the Watering Hole to Lissie perform. As advertised the place is on the beach with a lovely view across Perranporth beach, it was nice sitting outside with a cold beer watching the sunset. . A good little place for music events but also can be visited just to eat and drink.

Been here a few times now, great for having a refreshing drink after a walk on the beach. Food is nice too, with a great choice. Has a range of different drinks to suit anybody's needs. Friendly staff makes it 100% better, too!
