Drinks and food on this occasion were served by Adam who was very friendly attentive and polite... More

Went for a pamper day which was great but the lunch was not good. Fish was ok but the chips were dried out and were left. When pointed out when waitress collected my plate there was no discount on the bill either. Very poor and let down the hotel.

Chic and contemporary, The Bay Bar is a fusion of sophistication and fun. A welcoming venue as equally suited for a morning coffee whilst overlooking the breakers at Fistral Beach, Newquay as it is to a leisurely lunch or evening cocktail. We are open from 10am in the morning and serve food until 9pm and close 11.30pm.Situated at the south end of the world famous Fistral Beach, the Bay Bar benefits from astounding Atlantic views. Just as beautiful on a blustery winters day when you can curl up on the comfy chairs and enjoy a hot chocolate with friends as it is on a scorching summer's day when a jug of Pimms is a must! A daily food menu operates, offering a range of light bites to main meals. A sumptuous Sunday lunch is also available every week.
