We went to the Old Coastguard for dinner in July, having been there a few times last summer. The service is consistently incredible, the food is mainly amazing. It has a cosy laid back charm whilst being kind of posh at the same time if that makes sense. Definitely recommend it.

The Old Coastguard was our first port of call. The others being The Lugger in Portloe and Tresanton in St Mawes. All very different establishments with varying standards of decor, cleanliness, food and facilities but in my opinion all equal in offering a super-special memorable experience. On arrival The Old Coastguard seemed nicer than the photographs - more atmospheric -... More

Sat in the sloping garden for a drink with a lovely view out over the bay. Large clean benches, and a quiet, sunny spot. There is a large bar and indoor dining area that I expect gets quite busy at times. Would go again and the menu did look appealing!

Always come here for a meal when down in Cornwall. Having once lived in Mousehole it's good to catch up with family and friends over a few sneeky glasses of wine and superb food. A great place to eat as a large group or intermit dinner for two. Lots of outdoor room for kids to run around and easy access... More

Having stayed at the sister venue 'The Gurnard's Head' many times we opted this time for the slightly larger 'Coastguards'. As we expected, the room, service and food were all outstanding. We especially enjoyed our little balcony on room 14 which is at seagull and chimney pot level despite being on the ground floor - it's quite a hill! Would... More

We love this hotel - it is informal, welcoming, comfortable and - most importantly - very dog-friendly. It has a wonderful location overlooking Mount's Bay. Our room this time had a balcony with a sea view and a separate room for our doggy, and just a stroll into the village for dinner in the pub or up the hill to... More

Superb establishment, very clean and professional, beautiful view from excellent pub garden. Food very very nice too. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. And it's got its own parking with a fair priced council car park next door.

What a difference! Really clever well crafted menu showing a real twist on classic cuisine. All elements of dish perfectly seasoned to eat together. Great emphasis on the sea which makes sense. Myself and my two children had an incredible meal and the service was exemplary. All the waitresses were as good as each other & could not do enough... More

Gorgeous hotel in a gorgeous village. Fabulous, friendly staff and service, plus a huge pleasant room resulted in a very enjoyable stay overall. We did have some minor issues with a continually yapping dog in a neighbouring room (we are dog lovers, but still!) plus the room kept overheating and more hanging space would have been appreciated for 2 people,...
