Fab venue - ladies don't wear heels. It's on the beach. Had to go back to change. Disappointed that no food available after 7pm. Menu looked good. Would deffo visit again after hearing the reviews on food. 🦀🍤

Lovely place to stop for a good roast on Sunday after a stomp on the beach with the pooch. No airs or graces just good grub served in an efficient way and no need to worry that your traipsing sand in! Vegetarian options and a good selection of sides to go with your meat-perfect

Wow, what a fantastic Sunday roast. Woke up on Sunday and my partner and I always like to have a walk locally then find somewhere for a roast and few drinks. We've both been to The Watering Hole previously but never tried the roast. I was so impressed and very surprised just how good the roast was. The beef was... More

Walked over the sand to reach this lovely bar. Had A most amazing hot chocolate and rocky road. Lovely on the beach setting and even nice on a blustery day.

I have been visiting this beach bar for over 25 years, and is my my favorite establishment in the whole world. The staff, atmosphere, food and music certainly has made many a memorable family holiday. I can think of nothing better than a lazy summer beer sitting on the sand deck with the setting sun like a flood light on... More

A unique place but you pay for the pleasure and £3.30 for a soda water with ice is way Too much, some of the staff are fine but some have not got a clue which is a pity as it is basic training that is missing, good service would have gained a star or two.

Fabulous pub right on the beach serving tasty food. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff. Also a great place to sit outside and enjoy a hot chocolate or coffee first thing in the morning.

Fantastic pub on the beach of Perranporth. We have visited many times over the years. Lots of seating both inside and out, lots of sand on the floor and plenty of dogs! TV showing Sky Sports for sports enthusiasts. Limited opening hours during the winter, also limited winter menu but still do the famous roasts on a Sunday. We just... More

Having seen this place in the news after nearly being swept away in storms a few years ago, we decided to visit on the last day of our holiday. The bar sits on its own high point on the beach just behind the main street of the town and has a variety of seating indoor and out. It was pretty... More
