This place has huge potential but is let down by the awful outdated, untidy furniture and decor, and miserable staff. The only decent area is the picnic table area outside. The location is great and fronts the beautiful Praa Sands beach. However, that's where the...More

Visited twice this week once for Sunday carvery and once for midweek lunch. We had excellent food, drink and service on both occasions. For Sunday lunch it's advisable to book. The sun shone and there are excellent views of the beach.

Breakfast - so disappointing. The great view, did not make up for passing off of dried bread, for toast. Even though I sent it back a second time, they still couldn’t get any reasonable colour on it. I even had to ask for a side...More

A relaxed beach bar/restaurant set right on Praa Sands beach with fabulous views from our bar, restaurant and large patio. Serving a variety of mainly English food with a Mediterranean twist, and a good range of beers, wines, teas and coffees. We are child and dog (on a lead please!) Friendly, serve food all day, and have a very popular Sunday Lunchtime Carvery with live music. We also cater for Wedding receptions and other private parties in our beachside lounge area.
