An “impressive location” commanding sea views to St Clement’s Isle makes this seaside hotel a “great place for fish and seafood” landed just two miles away at Newlyn. It’s a lesser-known (and less highly rated) sibling to the Gurnard’s Head and the Felin Fach Griffin in Wales.

“Friendly staff” and a “fabulous location, with a great sea view from the large garden”, are the main attractions of this small seaside hotel, which offers guests a well-rated menu with plenty of fish and seafood. It’s from the same ownership as The Gurnard’s Head and, further afield, The Felin Fach Griffin in Wales.

“The Old Coastguard is back following the fire and its quality is undiminished” – despite their 2019 setback, this hotel dining room overlooking St Michael’s Mount is “worth travelling to”; it's run by the Gurnard's Head team, who turn out “excellent” fish-centric food in a “superb location” with real “buzz”.

A “perfect setting” looking out to the sea and St Michael’s Mount awaits at this “laidback”, boutique-ish hotel dining room, where the current regime – shared with the Gurnard’s Head – turn out “exceedingly tasty” fish-centric food. In June 2019, there was a fire, and until early 2020, the Old Coastguard team was cooking at The Vault (17-18 Market Pl, Penzance TR18 2JP - tel 01736 733033).

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
