Blue Bar has always been one of the biggest draws in the Porthtowan area and it must be pivotal for the local economy. It is one of the best placed bars in the county and being able to sit there and watch the sun set over the sea on a summer evening is a real pleasure. However, that's where the... More

what a wild day two grandchildren in the freezing wild surf in wet-suits and retiring with family to the Blue Beach Bar, we only had hot chocolate and chips this time which was excellent but the family have had the Moules Mariniere before which is to die for.

This place has an amazing position right on the beach facing directly into the summer sunsets. This is perhaps the only great thing about the Blue Bar. The service is at best adequate, offhand and can be exceedingly slow. Four of us ordering steaks when there were two other couples - nearly an hour before we were served with a... More

Delicious food and fast service. Everyone was pleased with what they had ordered and we will probably return when we go back to Cornwall in April.

My husband and I went to the Sunday night quiz, we had a lovely meal and the quiz was fun, even though we didn't win, the staff made us very welcome and thanked us personally for supporting the night, we would definitely return here again and it is perfectly situated on the beach, so great views.

This is the best place to eat and drink in the village, fabulous views of the surf and cliffs (be wary though - the window seats get snapped up and there are no reservations). Food is fairly standard pub fare, with burgers, pizzas, fish & chips. It's pricey but excellent quality, although I have to admit at the time we... More

This is one of my favourite places in Cornwall. I make it my 'go to' place EVERY time I'm in the county. It's late December and that odd week between Christmas and New Year. Lunchtime. The place is packed. There is an hour wait on the food, but I don't mind. It just gives me more time to sit here... More

The broccoli and blue cheese soup was delicious, give the white hot chocolate a miss though! Great location.
