We had a lovely meal with good food, ales wine and company, served by friendly staff. Followed by a comfortable night in a clean room with a lovely... More

First time in the part of Cornwall. We stayed in a bay view room with stunning views and really nice terrace to sit and enjoy the sunsets. Hugely popular with tourists and locals alike. Mad bar staff - but that is part of the character and enjoyment. The room was a wee bit tired but very comfortable and just a... More

We come here most Sundays to catch up with friends watch the sunset and maybe have an early evening meal. We love it here and it's because the staff make it. Especially monkey. He is always going beyond the call of duty for customers. Well done

The Bay View Inn is a super, bustling coastal restaurant, pub and inn. We've eaten here a few times and the food is consistently excellent. The portion sizes are notable - first timers are very likely to overstretch themselves (it's worth every mouthful). There's plenty of choice on the menu and the staff are fun, relaxed and friendly. There's plenty... More

Ah, what a treat! Ate wonderful crevettes in garlic butter with salad. I had new potatoes and my husband had chips. Wonderful prawns, juicy and tender. We gather that this dish tends to be a special at quieter times. The bar and restaurant can be very crowded at high season holidays and the menu may be limited to more mainstream... More

The pub has been enlarged & brightened up since we last visited. Great views, decent wines & real ales plus good food, plus a warm welcome make for a decent pub lunch experience. The loos are still a bit lacking, but it IS a beachy venue...
