Beautiful sunshine, a stunning view, water for the dogs, ratler on tap, and a massive Sunday roast to die for! What more could you ask for- never miss a visit to the boogie when we’re in Cornwall

A dirty and drab place with a good view over a pay & display car park, that’s if you can bare the cold breeze blowing in constantly in their exposed seating area. Camper vans do however obscure what should be a great view. No dogs...More

Quite the contrary - just very confused by some of the reviews. It is interesting as the reviews are either very good or very bad. I think many people are blinded by the views. I find it bizarre that people can like the food... More

Cornwall is renowned for its stunning coastal locations and dramatic seascapes, and if you haven't visited The Bowgie Inn in Crantock near Newquay, you're yet to see the best. Situated on West Pentire Headland overlooking the stunning Crantock Bay, the views from this famous pub will take your breath away. The surrounding area is a walker's paradise sandwiched between the unspoiled beaches of Crantock and Polly Joke. It's just a short stroll from The Bowgie to the coastal path which will take you on a circular walk of the headland, passing both beaches. On route, you'll be treated to spectacular views of the wild Atlantic Ocean, spot seabirds at play and work up a well-deserved appetite. A 'Taste of the West' Member, The Bowgie's traditional menu includes prime selected ingredients, Cornish produce, great food offers, local ales, well-chosen wines, an acclaimed luxury hot chocolate, and of course, the pub's famous Sunday Roast Dinner served all day. The Bowgie is open everyday from 11am, serving great pub lunches from 11am - 3pm and evening meals from 5pm - 9pm on week days and all day on Saturday and Sunday. Food is also served all day during school holiday periods. With fantastic sea views, lots of seating inside and out and a sun terrace for those warm Summer evenings, The Bowgie and the surrounding area is the perfect place to explore all year round. With a large private car park right outside the door, this must-visit Cornish treasure is accessible for all.
