Situated on one of Cornwall's most stunning bays, the Old Success is a beautiful 17th century fisherman's inn, which has been transformed into comfortable, modern rooms and apartments while retaining its charm and character. With clear blue sea and fine sands, Sennen Cove is a breathtakingly beautiful location. The Old Success boasts magnificent views overlooking the beach and Whitesand Bay towards The Brisons rocks and Cape Cornwall, the only cape in England.

Had great hopes for this pub. Great location etc but the food was very disappointing-average, at best. Menu was uninspiring and boring. Typical chain-pub grub. I thought the pub was a bit grubby and tired and in need of a revamp.

From what I can remember Darren it's all good for wheel chairs into the bar area and I'm sure there's an entrance into the restaurant through doors too.

Yes, we saw dogs staying with people in the apartments and they were allowed in the bar. Dogs were not allowed in the restaurant or bedrooms. The people with dogs seemed happy with the arrangements. It is a fantastic location, lovely food is also available in the bar so you can have a meal and have your dog with you if you prefer. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
