The pub itself is pleasant and dog friendly with a good range of beers on tap. Food is served all day and the same as in the restaurant. Large portions abound for all meals. Reasonable food at the price point. My partner had the fish and chips and commented while batter on the fish and chips was a little bit...

It was my second time in the Old Success and I must say - the name is a motto! I loved the place from my last visit, because it has a lot of Cornish character and is situated just next to the sea: you literally fall into it when you walk the coastpath. But they have not been idle in...

Nice pub, friendly bar staff, good location, but the food was disappointing. It wasn'y hot, our order was wrong, and the food waiting staff didn't seem particularly apologetic. It was late afternoon, but the pub wasn't that busy, so they shouldn't have been overrun ?

My husband and I met here 50 years ago on Easter Saturday 1966 (we discovered we lived just a few miles apart in Buckinghamshire!). Back then we were camping and the place was a just a quaint old pub where one could enjoy a glass of scrumpy after a days climbing/walking. So it was lovely on our return to stay...

The Inn is in a great location in a small village clinging to the cliffs overlooking the sea. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The Inn is old but very comfortable. There are a lot of stairs to negotiate so may not suit people with mobility issues. The rooms are comfortable and clean.

We eat here as often as our budget allows, food is always lovely, hot and plentiful. Staff always happy to offer recommendations which is super, service is always with a smile and nothing is too much too ask. It's often busy and has a lovely atmosphere. All the staff have been great but the only names I remember are Senara...

The rooms ain't to bad, room 10 sounded like it was next to a big washing machine. The food, well I have no idea where the word gastro came from for their food, it was awful. It's what I'd class as standard pub food but over priced and just looking at the menu you can see the. I had the...

This has to be one of the nicest pubs I've ever been to. The friendly people (staff & customers), great atmosphere, great location & fantastic food made it somewhere we visited everyday of week-long holiday! There was always a roaring fire to welcome us (& our dog) & as we visited in February the fire was a joy👍🏽. The food...

Located in the scenic surroundings of Sennen Cove this pub offers everything a holidaymaker or visitor might need. Attentive staff, a good menu and an excellent atmosphere all combine to create a business that provides everything for a good day out. A window seat provides unlimited views of the Atlantic crashing into the Cornish coastline and there is accommodation available...

My wife and I stayed here whilst walking a stretch of the Coastal Path. Check in was nice and simple after finding a member of staff in the bar. Our room was a sea view room. Fairly small but perfectly functional. Lovely views and wasn't too noisy in the evening. So what let it down? For our evening meal we...
