Warm welcome from friendly staff. Room was just right with nice furnishings and lovely views over the wonderful bay. The food was good and in particular the crab salad was delicious. The bar is cosy and full of character but the dining room is a little austere although the view is brilliant. The biggest downside is the tiny car park...

Food was tasty, I had the seafood broth and my wife had fish and chips. Breakfast was also good with great choice and again a very friendly,...

OK so let's start with the parking.... can be very difficult to find ... some outside dining is in the car park, not a good choice but climb the wooden steps to the top gallery/dining area and life turns spectacularly good. Great views up there. Food and drinks are ordered down below in the bar where there are plenty of...

We've been coming here for over 20 years so I was sad to note that on a previous visit the food side of things had slipped in quality to that of a typical 'chain' pub. No longer the case !!! Have just returned from a lovely stay,and the food and service are back to their original excellent standard!!! Particular credit...

After the walk from Lands End to Sennen Cove, we were in need of refreshment! The pub is on the seafront, it has good views of the bay & is really nice inside. Our lunch wasn't cheap....but it was worth it.

We booked for the restaurant and we're surprised to find we were the only people in there, apart from a member of staff who was busy working on his laptop which was only interrupted by him taking loud business calls. Not a great atmosphere or place to try and eat. The food was poor pub grub and we did not...

Very attentive and well trained bar staff greeted us and made sure we had iced water on the table. Bar area is full of character and well laid out with stunning views from seats by the window.

Stopped here for lunch after a lengthy coast walk and we all had great food outside on the upper terrace. Everything served super hot and quickly with a stunning view what more can you ask for? For real ale enthusiasts try the Cousin Jack or Doombar.

The location of this delightful Inn is almost as far west as you can travel in Cornwall and it is well worth the journey to get there. It is in a stunning location right next to the beach in Sennen Cove and benefits from sea views from some rooms. The accommodation is excellent value, having been recently refurbished and managing...
