Summary

Offering heady views of the surf below, this relaxed, woodsy beach hangout remains a useful address that’s welcoming to both four-legged friends and sand-strewn kids; the food (seafood, burgers and moules) is better than the location might suggest.

Summary

“Newquay meets California” at this “reliable” local on the beach, where “dogs, walkers and surf dudes are all welcome”; “what a location” it has – and the food and service live up (well “almost”).
