A fantastic night at the Waterfront last night. It was like the good old days. Great staff, great company and great fun. Just been over for a Sunday roast and that was superb too. Well done guys.

5 of us came for lunch and had really good food. Pubs need to tick certain boxes for me, good food, dog friendly, friendly staff and good ales. The Waterfront ticks all of them. It's recently under new management and I have to say the improvements are noticeable. I would recommend anyone to give this a go and if you've... More

Dog friendly to the extreme, never have I been more welcomed in a pub/restaurant, When I say me I mean the dog. Great food, good beer, the staff really really friendly straight over to ask if the dog would like a treat and if it would like a fuss which was obviously very welcome.

Friendly and welcome at the end of a cycle ride. This is the place nearest to the beach. Views of the harbour if you sit outside. Good coffee and scones

This is a little hidden delightful pub/restaurant we visited here twice on our recent visit to Portreath you can find it easy from the beach or sea front but takes a bit of finding from actual town but well worth a visit from just simple food in a basket to 3 course meal absolutely first rate food and excellent value...
