We booked a sea view room which is excellent value. It had 3 windows, each with a different outlook. The rooms have a complimentary hot drinks tray, kettle and a hairdryer is supplied.... More

It is at the top of quite a steep hill. We called in for a drink early evening and there were a couple of people eating. The furniture is very modern. There is a lovely, well built, wooden gazebo in the garden overlooking the sea.

The beer garden at this public house is nothing short of spectacular looking over the bay of Newquay Wales. Beer costs were expensive at £5 per pint but the views made up for it. Will definitely visit again some day next summer
