After the walk from Lands End to Sennen Cove, we were in need of refreshment! The pub is on the seafront, it has good views of the bay & is really nice inside. Our lunch wasn't cheap....but it was worth it.

We booked for the restaurant and we're surprised to find we were the only people in there, apart from a member of staff who was busy working on his laptop which was only interrupted by him taking loud business calls. Not a great atmosphere or place to try and eat. The food was poor pub grub and we did not...

Stopped here for lunch after a lengthy coast walk and we all had great food outside on the upper terrace. Everything served super hot and quickly with a stunning view what more can you ask for? For real ale enthusiasts try the Cousin Jack or Doombar.

The location of this delightful Inn is almost as far west as you can travel in Cornwall and it is well worth the journey to get there. It is in a stunning location right next to the beach in Sennen Cove and benefits from sea views from some rooms. The accommodation is excellent value, having been recently refurbished and managing...

Called into the Old Success Inn today, it was very blustery and we decided to have a tea with cake or something. Staff were really attentive, we arrived at the bar and asked for tea and cake, they offered cream tea which was acceptable. I paid it and returned to our table. The cream, scones and jam arrived with the...
