Spoilt an otherwise great weekend at this lovely hotel. The meal was swimming in oil, flowing across the plate in waves. When we complained we were told that we would not have pay for it given that it was not to my liking. This was not a taste issue! It was just wrong. There are much better places to eat... More

Fabulous location facing the sea, Fistral Beach and the headland beyond. During the summer the area comes alive, During Autumn time it is a great place to have coffee or stronger stuff from the bar, wrap up well as it can be chilly when the storm watching season is in full swing. Great hotel, friendly staff many of whom went... More

What the management of the hotel have to understand is that a proper tea at the Headland as they are trying to present, should be at a table large enough to have the tea pot and tiered sandwich/cake stand together with a clean white table cloth. The staff were clearly untrained apart from one who apologised to us after.

Comfortable sofas, or chairs and tables if you need it for eating, and a chilled atmosphere make it perfect for a lazy afternoon. Would get an excellent if it was slightly cheaper!

for £20 two course meal and £5 going to RNLI the meal we ate was a steal. Two superb lunch time courses, fishcakes with poached egg and capers. Gurnard and mussels stew with samphire. Baked cod with peppers. Perfect portions for lunch. Top class cooking and menu creation. Service as food as the Headlands provides, which is simply excellent. Just... More

Lovely restaurant in a fantastic location with spectacular views and the food was great. I had local fish curry and it was really lovely. The only thing that lets it down is the staff. We waited a long time for our drinks and had to ask 3 or 4 times for a jug of water!
