Description: 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.

I last reviewed this place about a year back from now, we were back in our favourite cottage in Sennen Cove for a week. Glad to say the place had not seemed to change, the food was still very good, beers and ciders excellent and the staff all seemed to be a happy and helpful bunch. The Crab Soup is still on the menu and excellent (had to mention it) - slightly changed from last year, a coarser texture and they'd added croutons. Yes, potentially I am getting fixated. Mention Sennen Cove and I can taste the Crab Soup. The rest of the food is very good too, but do try the soup. There is a very lively bar full of locals, Thursday night is quiz night, nothing taken very seriously, a good laugh all round.

My husband and myself read the reviews on this place .Decided to give it a try .It was a Saturday late afternoon .Noone at the bar serving and loads of noisey people , shouting , loud music and children , People seated around the bar and after waiting and looking at the expensive menu we left .Dissapointed , too rowdy and not welcoming at all .

Had a meal here and spent the rest of the day regretting not walking out. Thought it would be nice to sit on the terrace overlooking the bay. What we didn't bargain on was the overwhelming smell of urine coming from the toilets underneath. Another thing the decking- try cleaning it, sort out the buckled tables. Honestly if your want people to eat in your pub at least clean it. Pretty basic? As for the food. Straight out of the 70's. Frozen food deep fried? Not nice. Also over priced.
