I was expecting better food and cleanliness considering the prices, all basically self service, go to bar place order when the widget goes off go and collect!!! fish and chips ok ! But not worth nearly £14 !!!! Worth going for a drink to soak in the view over the beach but to eat ?

This place is in a wonderful location on the beach. It was overrun with dogs snarling at each other when I visited. The doors and windows are disgusting, as were the toilets. When I passed by early morning it was covered in garbage. I sat with my coffee in the early morning sunshine - due to garbage resulting in lots... More

Hi Dot, Thank you for your comments. Staff will be notified with your comments. We enjoy welcoming dogs in to our bar, after they've taken their owners for a walk, unfortunately we can't control their noise levels. We hope to see you again for a morning coffee where we can offer your our best hospitality. Best Regards, The Watering Hole More

Situated right on the Perranporth beach giving fantastic views across the beach to the sea. Serves a great selection of food & drink. Also has lots of live bands playing there on certain nights.

What to say about the Watering Hole, it is the most unique place around. It goes so well with the beach look, feel and wonderful views on a beautiful balmy evening watching the sun go down, you couldn't be anywhere better. The beer is good, alittle on the expensive side but this is always found with a captive audience. The... More

Had a full breakfast at the Wateringhole. Great food and plenty of it. It is a great place to refresh and top up and gets very busy so pick your time. It was lovely and quiet at 11am but by lunchtime it was heaving and a bit noisy. The vibrating food order system is OK and works but it is... More
