Just as well this place is in a spectacular location because if it was anywhere else it would be closed. The place is grubby,sticky and altogether tired. The wait for two coffee's was spectacular at more than 20 minutes,a snappy explanation was given when two coffee' s where taken into the kitchen before us being served.

We had breakfast here on a wet and windy Monday morning in November. Not many beachside cafe / bars were open at this time of year, but we were very glad we found this one. The breakfasts (with some surprising twists) were very tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful and the views couldn't be better. Cornwall at it's best.

We've often been to Chapel Porth, a couple of miles along the beach (when the tide is out) but we'd never been to Porthtown. On a sunny autumn day, we thought we'd stop for a sandwich before a walk on the beach and the Blue bar was a pleasant find. Right on the beach itself, we opted for drinks and... More

Still hadn't arrived when my friends did 15 mins later. Reminded the waitress who arrived smartish with not only my honey and toast but with... More

Lovely situation however the cafe was pretty dirty, the staff seemed aloof and the service was so slow. It's such a shame when cafes depend on their situation for continuing business and don't put the effort in to run the place properly.

This is a relaxed bar which is lovely for a coffee and a snack whilst admiring the beautiful sea view.

Our friends got married here and we really enjoyed it. We had a walk or surf between the ceremony and the reception, and it was gorgeous. The food was also very tasty, simple but good, and lovely desserts. Staff were super kind. Imagine this would be a nice bay to spend a family day at the beach in, and to... More

Visited a few times this week whilst on holiday for the half-term break. Went in the vending first and found my t a bit grubby! Sand on the floor wobbly tables and a little run down! However, the staff are very friendly and the views and a pint make up for it. Nephew had the Dirty Chips, big portion but... More

We love popping in here every so often for a drink, it's a great setting and they allow dogs in doors! I would recommend the nachos to share, very generous portions and lovely hot drinks. I always love the choice of music played in the background, and there's a great choice of live bands -I reccomend seeing 'Love gap'! However... More
