So this is a great pub in an area where great pubs are pretty easy to find. The location is almost without equal - opposite Sennen Cove, within spitting distance of Lands End and Penzance and with views that you would lose a part of your own anatomy to look at every day. And St Austell have done a good job of making the most of the building and location - in Summer a superb terrace gives wonderful views for lunch/dinner and the food and beer are both good.
Whilst it would be appropriate to say that the beer is really very good (and all the St Austell beers are well kept and served including the Korev lager) the food is only OK. Not bad, or small of portion but just OK. And that is a shame because if the food were outstanding then this would be a mecca to rival the beach opposite.
If the sun is bright you will struggle to find a place at any time - but this is a pub that won't disappoint whatever the weather, but it won't wow you either.
