Reviewed 23 July 2013

Nice staff who spoke to you normally. I thought the drinks were good and liked it in a jam jar. Seems to be the place to be on a sunny night in the summer. .

“Simply awful!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

The only thing this place has going for it is the views over the sea and town beach!

Breakfast is a rip off and falsely advertised. An all you can eat buffet for £5 should mean exactly that.. The strapline on their flyer suggested that we could pile the plate as high as we want. In reality it was someone serving breakfast that dictated what you had on your plate. Flyer also said hash browns.. Another lie. A complete con just to get you in.... Disappointing.

Would never return.

Toilets disgusting. Blurrrrrgghhh at breakfast time, still stinking and smelling from the night before.

“Could be so much better with its location”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Though not an overly long wait for the food which was just ok.Service and attitude of staff not good enough.We werent told that they would bring food to the table but then you had to get up and fetch your own cutlery and condiments.When i asked the girl i heard her tut and say oh i will get it.Think it could be same girl mentioned in other review.Not pleased to see customers!
Bar it self was lack lustre and needed cleaning.
Staff really should engage and smile a welcome at least.
Felt a nuisance and expected better.!

“Awful! Worst service I have ever seen.”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

We stopped in Newquay on our way back from holiday to get some breakfast on a quiet Monday morning. We ordered breakfast at the bar, 35 minutes later there was still no sign of any food so I went inside to check that they hadn't missed our order. I waited for about five minutes at the bar whilst the staff explained to someone that the only barman who could change a barrel had gone to the shop for the third time that morning so they couldn't have any beer. Eventually I asked a barmaid about the progress of our food order. She said that there was a standard 35 minute wait for all food which we should have been told when we ordered (we weren't) and that it would "probably" be with us sometime soon. I asked if there was anything else she could tell me, hoping that she might offer to go and check with the kitchen staff, to which he replied "what do you expect me to do about it?" With her hands on her hips. I walked back out to our table at this point. Another ten minutes later the wrong food order turned up. Luckily the guy who brought out the food was polite and apologetic but the barmaid (curly blonde hair) should never be employed in a customer serving role again. She seemed to be of the opinion that she was doing us a favour, rather than fulfilling her paid employment.
