We came and had lunch at the Old Coastguard whilst on holiday in Cornwall and has a super meal. The staff were so helpful and very friendly. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very relaxed. After our meal we sat on the sofas having a drink, over looking the garden with views looking out over the sea. I am a wheelchair user and The Old Coastguard was very accessible and had disabled toilets that were easy to get into, there is plenty of parking at the hotel along with step free access into the hotel.

We love it at The Old Coastguard! We booked for the NYE à la carte menu but Boris knocked that on the head, only giving you guys a few hours notice-we really felt for you. But, not knowing when we would have the chance again, we had to act quickly! You allowed us, without any fuss, to make the most of being in Tier 2 for just a few more hours by switching our booking to Wednesday! A safe environment with, frankly, gorgeous smelling hand sanitiser, warm welcoming staff and a no nonsense approach with well-spaced, socially distanced tables. No contact menus via a QR code, gorgeous food ( I had squid & steak & husband had shin of beef & steak, if you were wondering) and we had more than a couple of my new favourite cocktail: the Martinez with our ‘substantial meal.’ The service was second to none as always. My other favourite thing about TOC is how dogs are so welcome! Not mine obviously, he literally has no manners and would cause absolute mayhem, but the well-behaved normal dogs who just sit there and enjoy the chilled ambience without making an idiot of themselves. It’s lovely to see them all! We’re sorry that you’ve had to close now but we can’t wait to come back ( we only live in Hayle) when this pandemic is over and restrictions have eased a little. In the meantime, take care, be safe & thank you for rearranging our booking!

We’ve eaten at the Coastguard 3 times over the last few weeks, so it won’t come as a surprise that we love you! The service is excellent, food is always good, with a great choice of wine. The restaurant is always warm, and has a good atmosphere. What’s not to like!

When we went to The Christmas Feast at The Gurnards Head there were no menus and we used our I Phones to access the menus.At The Coastguard we were given paper menus but the other diners weren't .I think that this was ageist and it made me irritated .The restaurant manager looked at us and made a judgement that we wouldn't be capable of using the technology .Perhaps the manager might ask in future?

My husband and I had such a special meal at the Old Coastguard. The service was impeccable we were made to feel so welcome! The Covid measures were on-point safety wise whilst at the same time, they didn't taint the cosy atmosphere. The food was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, the view was breathtaking... Thank you.

Thank you for such memorable and delicious meals. Meals, plural, because it was so good that we booked again straight away. Lovely service, every person was friendly and helpful and lovely. Best meal we’ve had in ages. Highlights include the delicious squid with warm lettuce (incredible depth of flavour), lovely soft but with crunchy edges gnocchi with deliciously warming gorgonzola sauce, incredibly tasty salty Jerusalem artichoke with crispy outside and practically oozing inside. And also the fantastically delicious ginger pudding with best ever custard, softest poached pear, and an amazing bouillabaisse sauce that had all the depth and flavour of an excellent bouillabaisse. And also the super mussels with gorgeous sauce! Anyway, I better stop but just fantastic, so thank you.

GOAT! Honestly the best Sunday Roast we have had this year, the Guinea Fowl I had was so soft and succulent and the vegetables perfect. The Rice Pudding dessert with rum soaked vine fruits was divine, and the service warm yet professional (COVID safety guidelines strictly adhered to) couldn’t ask for more!

Given all the current COVID dampeners, we couldn’t have been made more welcome, or experience the best of Cornish hospitality and service. Food was beautifully prepared and presented. We were a table of 5 who chose different starters and mains and without exception we were all delighted with our choices. I would not hesitate to recommend The Old Coastguard!
