This lovely quaint pub on the beach is ideal for any occasion. I've eaten here many times and the food is delicious. Today I had roast which was so very tasty and the meat was so tender. It's the best roast around here since the new management took over. Highly recommend!

Veggie lasagne clearly frozen as pasta was so soft it disintegrated in my mouth and a severe lack of vegetables. More like wallpaper paste. Havent ate in here since and wouldnt waste my money or time. Staff were very polite and apologetic but better to visit The Basset Arms 2 mins walk away.

When we finally got our drinks... More

This place over the years has had its ups and downs. I frequently visited this place a few years ago, as it's located in one of most favourite places of Cornwall. Which is where I now live. But the place lost it is appeal though a decline in quality and service. However I heard that the place had new management... More

Food was okay when it arrived however on two occasions, the landlady forgot to put our order through. We were the only ones eating!! Delighted to speak to the new manager about his plans for the...

A fantastic night at the Waterfront last night. It was like the good old days. Great staff, great company and great fun. Just been over for a Sunday roast and that was superb too. Well done guys.
