Fab food, great service, all in all a lovely evening. I had the seafood broth which was delicious, followed by the sharing sundae which was rather tasty. Very friendly staff and good beer, would definitely recommend.

What a great place to have pub grub and a pint with fantastic views over Newquay. Good food and a good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff. Great place for adults and families. A play area in the beer garden for kids.

Great place to eat and drink, if it's a nice day I recommend sitting outside looking out over the beach watching the surfers.

Two of us shared a seafood platter. It was excellent. Outside area is massive and overlooks the bay. Would definitely recommend.
