I remember coming here with my mother in the summer of 2015 and the food was absolutely mouthwatering. However; upon revisiting recently, I was thoroughly disappointed by the food. Staff were very welcoming and the pub itself is still really nice, but considering the price for the food, it was dry, tasteless and very expensive. The chips were particularly dreadful,... More

I stayed here for 2 nights early December and was delighted. Accommodation was warm, clean and comfortable with amazing sea views. I slept to the sound of the waves crashing on rocks. Food was great - far superior to normal pub grub. The new manager and his partner were delightful and very kind as were the staff. My dogs felt... More

Many thanks for your review. As I'm fairly new to the pub its great to hear that things are going right. We have an awesome pub and some great staff. Now that my partner thinks shes 'retired' (?), she gives every dog gets twice as much fuss as she ever used to! We look forward to welcoming you again soon.... More

I visited this location a few years ago and the current management have improved the venue.We were given a warm welcome by staff who were very accommodating.The room is clean and had excellent views.The breakfast was lovely and I would certainly visit again.The only negative was a soft mattress when I prefer it firmer.

You know it's going to be a good pub when you walk in the door and there are dogs sat with their families. The service was friendly, the food was lovely and surprisingly large portions. The coffee is tasty too. A great pub to visit whatever the weather. We will be back

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.
