“UK's only 'on beach' bar”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

A great place to relax after exercising the dog as you have to walk across the beach to get to it and once there the view is fantastic. The staff are young, polite and helpful, the food comes in good portions but a little pricey and they have a nice range of beers. There is lots of outdoor seating for when the weather is fine. It is one of my favourite places in Cornwall when travelling with our dog. It was fairly quiet when we were there second week in May bit I can imagine it could very, very busy in the school holidays when the weather is good.

“Superb Spot”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

The Watering Hole is what it is. Nice food reasonably priced and in a superb location. Doesn't set out to be posh just a relaxed eating place.

“Amazing beach and bar ”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

Came to the waterhole for an evening meal and a couple of drinks , we walked in and straight away loved the surfy look of the place. Unfortunately the weather wasn't as hoped but the view was still amazing from our table looking out over the beach. We both took a look at the menu and thought prices was a bit expensive but when receiving the food we changed our minds as the portions was huge and food was excellent, it was a busy looking Friday night with a live band but still food came quicker than expected , the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly . The card machine wouldn't work as we went to pay but the lad behind the bar sorted it and got our money reimbursed which was very helpful , will defiantly be returning to this amazing bar.

“Bar on the Beech”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

This place is as rugged as it looks. Set on the beech at Perranporth the view from its outside tables is brilliant. A little bit expensive it I thought, but none the less a great place to sit and pass the time away. I haven't been back this year yet April 2014, but will before my holiday finishes.
