This review comes at the end of a week of eating out in Porthleven. The rating reflects the experience of the establishment compared to our expectation and relative to the experience of other places we ate at during the week.

The Atlantic Inn has a restaurant area which takes bookings but also has plenty of space in the bar. The same food is offered wherever you sit - we have eaten in both areas and enjoyed our food on both occasions.

There is a good selection on the menu and specials board from traditional pub grub to fish specials and with dishes based on food from further afield (oriental, tex/mex).

The pub is located high above the harbour and on a clear evening has fantastic views from tables close to the window or outside.

We arrived in Porthleven for our annual holiday with nothing really planned in advance for evening meals. On the first night we dined at the Atlantic taking advantage of a special Fishy Friday deal - the quality of food and service was outstanding. Day 2 we returned for live music on Sat night and an equally delicious meal. The band were brilliant. Two further visits followed including the steak deal on Wednesday night, which once again was outstanding. We even spotted a pod of several dolphins from our elevated view on the Monday night. I think a lot of the restaurants around the harbour are expensive and over-rated. The Atlantic offers a first class value for money alternative, that makes no sacrifice on quality and highly recommended. In case you wondered, dog friendly in bar not restaurant.

Paid a visit to Porthleven and was looking for a somewhere to have some lunch. Slightly off the main town we found the Atlantic inn. Friendly local pub that welcomed us and our German Shepherd. Noticed that on Sunday they do a roast, so we ordered up Five Lamb roasts. What can I say, really nicely done food, plenty of meat, roast parsnips, potatoes and a loads of different vegetables served with homemade gravy. One of the best pub roast's I've had, generous portions, and only £9. Will be making this a regular Sunday trip when we are back in Cornwall next year.

I did not eat there but visited several times for a pint. Great veiws and really great staff, such a nice bunch. Would recommend you visit for a drink. Many people I spoke to enjoyed the food, I looked at the menu and it is standard pub fare - portions looked big and many smiling faces were viewed. Definitly worth a visit.
