An A-List Team

According to Cornwall Live, The Bay View Inn is one the 50 best Cornish boozers to enjoy a pint (we came in at number 25!) And it’s true that we have a drinks menu to suit everyone and every occasion – and a sea view so spectacular that even a quick drink can turn out to be selfie-worthy (#TheBayViewInn please!) – but it is the super-friendly, super-knowledgeable, extra-mile walking bar staff who make all the difference.

Here is a selection of what’s on offer here – download our Drink’s Menu here.

Sharish Blue Magic GinFruity, flavoured and award-winning gins

The Bay View Inn is a mecca for anyone who loves gin, which these days is pretty much everyone. And although our bar is on the ickle side, we have a wide and pretty intriguing collection of gins for you to choose from.

If you like local gins, we always have at least 5 Tarquin’s gins on the go: Tarquin’s Dry is as our house gin, Rhubarb & Raspberry one of our most popular fruity gins, and we always have a few rarities to go with them.

But it is our fruity, food flavoured, award-winning – and magical gins that really wow. So if you’re looking for some serious ginspiration, check out our gin guide.
