The Old Coastguard in Mousehole is a perfect mix of laid back ambience; attentive, knowledgeable staff; excellent food and amazing views. Blissfully relaxed, yet the attention to detail is spot on.
Comfy leather armchairs in front of the large sea facing windows - for those wanting to while away an afternoon with a nice glass of red and some homemade bar snacks. Or enjoy the traditional Brasserie menu around a large oak table, most with sea views. Their head chef, Matt Smith is well deserved his Gold Award in 2016 from Taste of the West. His menus are simple, using the best ingredients to produce great, properly done British food. Largely influenced by the proximity of Newlyn fishing harbour and with local estate game and Cornish beef featuring and a cracking cheese board.
You can eat al fresco on the terrace, looking down over the fabulous palm filled garden and out over the sea to the small rocky St. Clement’s Isle. It is said a hermit once lived there, tending a guiding light for the pilchard fishing boats. Children and dogs are both welcome at The Old Coastguard, with board games, toys and books for all to enjoy. A wonderful place eat, drink and relax.
