This is a great place... we stayed for a single Friday night DB&B deal which was excellent. We arrived around 2.30pm, dumped the bags in our simple double room and then off to the coast path and exploring Gurnard's Head. The pub bit of the place is rustic - stone flags, open fire and a few great cask ales with quite a few locals/walkers enjoying a late lunch or simply re-hydrating after a bit of exercise. The room was fairly basic, with old-style shower cubicle in the en-suite, and the bed felt a bit too soft. However, plenty of hot water and a completely unbroken night's sleep were testimony to the level of comfort. The food is a major draw for this place... just lovely: marinated mullet as a starter (bit like a ceviche: try the Mousehole Bitter to accompany) and a delicate steamed sole followed by a couple of slices of Cornish cheese and a Cyder brandy.... fish heaven! All food included in the DB&B rate so excellent value for money too. A great breakfast to start the day: full Cornish or try the kipper, with homemade bread, yoghurt and muesli and Cornish apple juice. We loved it and will be back to try a Sunday sleepover, which is even better value and includes Sunday dinner.... a great place in a beautiful area.
