Thanking you for visiting us at the Port William. Unfortunately due to our extreme location we are unable to get phone signals at all round here.

We have just stayed three nights and were disappointed with room 8 as it only had a sea view if you craned your neck out of the window, it was next to the outside stairs so was noisy and the TV only had BBC and channel 5, the bed was hard and the food was so, so average. The meals... More

We came to the Port William for my birthday as a party of nine after previously eating there. Our mains came out very staggered, half the party had to start eating without the rest. The meat was lovely and tender and the pulled pork was delicious. However, all 5 of the roasts were cold and had to be sent back... More

We have been visiting the Port William for many years, the pub has changed and it has been in brewery hands for some time. The winter menu although small is adequate but I suspect that if you went to any St Austell Breweries pub then the menu would be the same. We ate both evenings in the pub, on Friday... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Port William Inn at Trebarwith Strand, near Tintagel, is a wonderful pub and restaurant on the North Cornwall coast, renowned for excellent pub food and a comfortable welcoming bar. There is also 4 star accommodation, with all 8 hotel rooms having a very high standard of finish and superb sea views, down to the sea and the dramatic cliffs. Magnificently situated, The Port William Inn nestles into the cliffs overlooking the dramatic Trebarwith Strand on the North Cornwall coast. When out, the tide reveals a mile of golden sand which can be viewed from the bar, the conservatory dining area and from the inn's eight luxurious en suite hotel bedrooms. Once you have visited we are sure you will agree there is no other inn in Cornwall with a location to match that of the Port William. You are also welcome to enjoy the inn's excellent food and drink from the bar and restaurant, while enjoying the superb views from our outside terrace. The Port William lies on the famous Cornwall coast path and is a very popular stop off point for walkers. Trebarwith Strand also offers a surf school and has Life Guards during the summer months. A short drive takes you to local golf courses and tennis courts while the world famous Tintagel Castle and Island are just a short walk along the coast path. ... more   less
