We visited the fantastic beach but unfortunately the beach cafe didn’t reach the same standards! Food tasted of old cheap fat - everything appeared to be cooked deep fat fried. Very disappointing and very poor. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone

An excellent sandy beach with a stream running down it was only marred for us and the dogs by a strong wind. The beach was clean and the backdrop of Caerhays Castle added atmosphere. Sadly the café closed on the stroke of 3 so went...More

This cafe has a very limited choice of food. Most of the listed items were not a a available. Cornish pasty handed over in a paper bag and when I asked for a plate I was given a cardboard tray. No cutlery or crockery here!...More

First class entertainment with girl duo A Little Twisted. The girls happen to be friends of our daughter. Good and reasonably priced food and an open air bar. Nice to be able to wander around and visit the beach. Even our dog enjoyed it.

.... and of course mine, too. Beautiful location, extremely (dog) friendly staff, tasty food, nice cakes and very good espresso. By the way, the beach is lovely, too (and dogs are welcome all year).
