“What dreams are made of”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

I love this place and try to visit every year its the perfect location for lazing the day away. The food is first class as is the service. My favorite is a lovely tasty cream tea in the afternoon while sitting watching the surf and the surrounding breathtaking veiws.

“Simply brilliant pub.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

This is the perfect pub whether its during the daytime with the sun, sea and sand or a night out at the weekend with live bands and entertainment!

Suitable for family's, couples, everyone! Food is some of the best pub food you can get, never have to wait long to be served for drinks or food due to the efficiency and level of staffing.

Remember this pub is ON the beach so there will be sand around your feet but this gives the pub an original feel.

I suggest the minority that have placed bad reviews not bother visiting again so the rest of us can enjoy an outstanding pub.

“Great location, friendly staff, good grub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

I first discovered this place about 10 yrs ago. My fiancé and I are regulars to cornwall and visit this pub at every opportunity. We love it so much that we've chosen to have out wedding reception there this summer. The staff are always really helpful and friendly. Food is good and reasonably priced. You just can't beat sitting in or outside with that amazing view - even on our latest trip at the end of October! Counting down to our next visit in March.

“Best bar in the world!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Amazing place, loads of great beers and drinks, the food is always spot on, and the relaxed surfey atmosphere is priceless. The only negatives, is that its not always the cleanest of all places, and the tables could do with being cleared a little quicker, but overall, i absolutely LOVE the place.
