What can I say about the Watering Hole , after a day on the beach , along walk or a surf , what 's better than having a beer right on the sand . It's very friendly and dogs are welcomed in. It gets very full in the summer but there's loads of seating outside . It's a great place to people watch !

After arranging with the staff the day before. My family party of eight arrived for my wife's birthday on a Sunday night in October. We wanted to go on the Saturday, but were advised that Sunday would be better as a wedding party were arriving on Saturday. On arrival, we were greeted with kitchen staff hastily retreating, and informed that food was no longer beating served. This was at 19:40. Disappointed, we all had a couple of drinks. We were then told at about 20:15, that the bar would be shutting imminently and we would need to vacate very soon. It seems that the bar made enough money on the Saturday with the wedding party, to no longer require our business on the Sunday. The location is pretty nice and maybe, at busier times it's a better experience. When customers have planned to visit from far away, and maybe for a special occasion....or even just for a bite to eat!!! The customer service was pretty dreadful.

This place is brilliant. Its right on the seafront with beautiful views of Perranporth beach. Its very dog friendly with outside and inside seating and I have been here a couple of times now.
Although a little pricey it is well worth it,the food is delicious and a reasonable choice is offered on the menu. Its spacious inside and their is regular entertainment in the evenings but you may need to book or arrive early.

Its well worth a visit and I would definitely recommend to whoever asks.

Being going here many years now - sitting outside in the hot sun; or sheltering by the window as the rain lashed down; or in the 'Bond' casino one New Years Eve. On a warm summer's evening, after a day of dipping your toes in the sea - a few beers, a live band and the sun going down over the sea - this uniquely decorated beach bar is the nearest you'll get to California dreaming here in England! Don't expect too much from the food, yes it isn't particularly cheap & sometimes they get it wrong. But... if you can smile & relax & soak up the atmosphere - yer can't go wrong.
