“A Jewel on the North Coast of Cornwall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Over the last 5 years we have frequented the Coombe Barton Inn regularly. My wife and I have a holiday home on Hentervene Holiday Park, Upper Crackington which is located only a couple of miles up the hill from the Inn. We have never commented on our experience but feel we have to compliment the quality of food served, happy staff and most importantly the excellent rapore they have with their customers. The range of beers, cider and wines are excellent. We noticed that some people complain about the length of service it takes especially during the height of the tourist season but at least the staff communicate with the diners re timings. We have experienced some delays but do not mind given the beautiful location, scenery and attentive staff. See you all next month AGAIN!!!

Beautiful views from this pub/hotel almost on the beach. Friendly staff, reasonable pub grub if you stick to the 'catch of the day' - we had the sea bass which was delicious. Room was comfortable with a separate bathroom with a bath! which we really appreciated after walking the coast path. Room 5 has no view but it didn't bother us as we had had views all day and just wanted to sleep! Only problem was the live band on Saturday night which played till midnight - sounded like it was next door - no soundproofing at all. If we had known, we wouldn't have stayed a 2nd night.

4 of us have just had an amazing weekend at this inn. It could not have been better. Amazing location and really, really friendly staff, who went out of their way with us. Food was delicious, pub food. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

We had seen some bad reviews of this place so there was a bit of a worry to driving over 5 hrs to spend a weekend here. We shouldn't have worried the staff were very friendly including a chat about the hotel, serving times, that they would be available to help all night etc. Although some of the selections of drinks was limited (I like a selection of Whiskies) the selection of local bear was good. There is a good selection of dinners and special options for the day. We tried both from the menu and specials. These both turned up in a reasonable time and were presented/tasted well.

Room Tip: Remember there is a pet option if you want to go with your dog :)

Great place, lovely views, room 6 was very nice and private balcony/ decking area was brill! Good food, nice friendly staff. Not too far from Boscastle, Tintagel, Bude etc! I would go back here. We were lucky to have sun all weekend too.

Great location right near the coast path. It was a nice Haven after a long walk. The staff were so wonderful and friendly. They were so accommodating to me on my second day. I had time before my bus. They let me hang out in my room even though I was checked out. That really helped. Let's face it Crackington Haven is beautiful but there is not much to do while waiting. I would love to stay there again some day.

We had wanted to stay here for years as it looked lovely. It was not. Everything was very shabby, the room was in poor condition. The breakfast was extremely poor quality with no effort made at all for vegetarians. However, the most disappointing thing for me is that i wrote a letter to express my concerns and that letter has not even been acknowledged. They obviously don't care at all.
