Rented a holiday cottage where it stated clearly in the guest book that you will get a free bottle of wine with EVERY 2 main courses ordered here!! We asked the waitress who said "oh I don't think so, I'll check", I heard her ask the land lady who replied unhappily "oh give them 1 bottle" having in mind we... More

Sorry to hear about your experience: As the landlady I am surprised you thought I "begrudgingly"said you could have the wine, not my usual response, however when this offer was available all guests were supposed to show a relevant booking receipt or the black card that was given to holiday cottage guests, I may have been trying to explain that...

My family and I went to the Antlantic Inn for lunch over Christmas and it was proper home made gorgeous food. We all had different meals ranging from fish, to chilli con carne and a burger and it was all delicious. The owners were lovely too, dry accommodating and friendly!

We visited The Atlantic in Porthleven for a meal before Christmas. We each had three courses, one was vegetarian, one a traditional Christmas meal. Both meals were absolutely delicious. Neither of us felt we could eat all three courses but the food tasted so good we scoffed the lot. Leigh and her team were very friendly, professional and attentive. I... More

We ate here twice on our recent visit to Porthleven. Restaurant area is separate from the pub however you still get the pub atmosphere. Portions are generous - menu is sufficiently varied - and the quality is v.good and in keeping with this being a public house. We will eat here again the next time we are in town....

Went for Sunday lunch at 1 pm, choice of roast beef or chicken. I choose roast beef. Some slices of beef has been re-heated on the cha grill and the potatoes and a veg (carrots and Swede), re-heated, overcooked and not very nice. The other meals were good but definitely would not recommend sunday lunch, not worth £9.

Went for a lovely walk from Helston to Porthleven along the coast path and stopped for lunch at The Atlantic Inn. Fantastic food had the burger and it was really filling and tasty. Staff friendly and dogs are welcome inside. Great value for money will be back.

I treated Karrie to a lovely meal at the Atlantic. The food was excellent as usual. Karrie enjoyed Prawns in filo pastry, followed by Sea Bream. I enjoyed Gojon of Gurnard, followed by a delicious Rib-eye with blue cheese sauce.

Staying just down the hill.on Loe Bar Road & had dinner here on Sunday night. I had lamb curry & my friend had hake from the specials board. Very reasonably priced. Food was delicious.
