If the sun is shining in Cornwall, it doesn’t really matter which view you’re facing; it’s all amazing. An after work stroll on the beach and a supper on the sand watching the surfers and holidaymakers. Good gluten free options, reasonable prices (considering where u...More

Fantastic setting for a drink after a walk on the beach but food overpriced-very much felt like the tourists will pay it everytime.

Unless it it a very high tide you can walk across from the car park over the bridge. During a high tide you can access The Watering Hole from our access road which is behind the venue.
