Lovely beach, child friendly and this is a lovely pub for an outside lunch. The. Fab sandwich is one of the best in Cornwall and we return regularly to enjoy.

I stopped here for a drink and found a good range of local drinks available to me.
There are pictures of old times which showed a very different time.
This pub is dog and people friendly and there seemed to be a good atmosphere.

I didn't have any food but from what I smelt I think it would be loverly.

Great staff, menu and food. Always a nice meal and superb sunset views. Great specials board compliment the menu. Nice choice of ciders too!

Best avoided in summer in view of chronic parking problems in peak periods. The attractive public house is situated at the end of a narrow lane, which is a dead-end road leading to the bay. There are a handful of parking places by the pub but otherwise you must park up a steep hill some way from the Rashleigh Inn, and even that car park has limited capacity.

The pub is in a small inlet within a larger bay beyond and is in an attractive setting. There is a concrete breakwater that produces the impression of a harbour. There is seating both inside and outside the establishment. On a pleasant day outside is recommended. There is a choice of St Austell brewery real ales at 'south east' prices, Tribute being £3.70 per pint. The beer was in good condition.

We ordered pasty and chips. The pasty was OK but the chips were, as per other reviewers, dripping with fat, with the potatoes partially peeled and were not appetizing. Prices were average. The staff were, on the whole, pleasant but one nearly middle aged woman with glasses seemed to be doing customers a favour by serving them.

Overall a visit is recommended during an off-peak period and while not 'excellent' the experience was, overall, very good, justifying a four star rating.

Beer selection was good for a small pub and the restaurant area still had a view to the sea.
Food was better than expected with just a concern about the slightly soggy chips.
