The watering hole sits on the beach and struggles for identity between a surf shack and a diner/sports bar and tries to be both. The live music is good and varied. The bar is busy, but drinks are expensive. The Rattler cider is very good. We spent an afternoon and a couple of evenings here. There is football on the... More

As a place for a beer in the sunshine, outside, over looking the beach and the sea, you can't fault this place. However, we had breakfast here, £40 for 4 breakfasts and hot drinks. The breakfast was ok at best with a coupe of mistakes made. The hot drinks were mediocre. There are far better places to eat fresh, tasty... More

We recently visited Perranporth and were told we had to visit The Watering Hole. We weren't disappointed. The hot chocolate was out of this world and the food was delicious with very generous portions. Such a great spot to watch the sun go down. It's a very popular bar/restaurant, which also allow dogs too.

The coffee counter had a queue about a dozen people long at 11am on a Kids Easter Holidays week day. Sunny (but cold) day. The beach was busy. The Watering Hole was busy. Drinks are good, but a little pricey. Then you step out the front door and see why, as you perch on a bench and have one of... More

Hi Dan, Thanks for your review - we can get very busy over the holidays, as you said we have the most perfect views on a sunny day. If you can make it between main lunch and dinner service this can help avoid the queues! We hope to see you enjoying your cider or ale this summer. Best Regards, The... More

Great family-owned Bar on the Beach with a good selection of food served in the restaurant and function room. Great for just enjoying a beer or coffee while taking in the glorious beach and surf panorama, or if the weather is not great you can watch rugby inside the bar on their giant screen while enjoying the great selection of...
