Pub food with a well stocked bar. The best part is the amazing view and in nice weather you can sit outside the live music on a Friday night is also great!

We do enjoy our Friday evenings with the live music, especially when the suns setting, it’s such a wonderful evening, the view is simply amazing. Thank you for the review you have left us.

Excellent, reasonably priced food and a fantastic view of the Newquay coastline. Friendly staff too. Only downside was having to order at the bar which isn't really a problem.

A find. It was so lovely to find a place that welcomed dogs and then to discover the amazing views of the sea. Food and service also very good. This is a big restaurant with lots of covers, inside and out, but retains the charm...More
