“Lovely cream tea”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

My partner and I decided to walk from Penzance to mouse hole and was recommended the old coastguard as a place to stop for a bite to eat. By the time we arrived we both fancied a cream tea. The service was quick and efficient and staff were polite and friendly. The cream tea arrived well-presented each on small wooden boards. The jam was presented in mini jars for each of us and was nice and cold. The scones were a good size accompanied by a very generous pot of cream each (which I personally like). The cream tea was delicious. The scones were fresh and tasty and not at all dry. The jam was equally tasty and most definately was home made.

I would definately recommend a stop here for a cream tea. The atmosphere of the place is pleasant without being overbearing. There are plenty of comfy chairs and sofas with beautiful views out to the gardens and coast. We will be back at some point for another cream tea or maybe next time try something off of the lunch or dinner menu!

“Best fish stew ever in a beautiful spot”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

This pub was probably the nicest we visited in Cornwall and paradise after the offerings in Newquay. It was recommended by a friend but not signposted in the centre of mousehole at all. When we did find it, we were a bit underwhelmed by the exterior but inside is beautiful. The garden is particular is gorgeous with stunning views. We ordered fish stew and french onion soup, both were excellent but the fish stew in particular was amazing. I suppose it is pricey but the staff, surroundings and food are worth it. Highly recommended.

We first had a drink on the terrace enjoying a stunning view. The restaurant is nicely kept and well decorated. Staff was very attentive and friendly. We had salads, fish and chicken. The food was excellent. We do highly recommend this restaurant.

Reviewed 13 August 2014

Only stopped for drinks but worth it just for the view. Lovely sea views whatever the weather. Nice garden for sunny times.
