Seaside Faves

With a Cornish twist

The Bay View Inn restaurant is one of the biggest and busiest in North Cornwall for a good reason: not only do we offer one of the finest sea views anywhere in the world, but our relentlessly creative kitchen have established a world-wide reputation for transforming the finest local ingredients into scene-stealing dishes all of their own.

The bar isn’t bad either with over 30 of the best gins in the world (literally) perched on its modest shelves. And then there is the super friendly service, dog friendly dining options, cool décor…

Autumn & Winter Menu: Riding the Green Wave

Our Autumn and Winter Menu takes yet another huge stride in our evolution toward offering expected seaside dishes (think Fowey mussels, scampi, rack of ribs etc) alongside more innovative vegetarian, vegan, GF and health-conscious cuisine.

Naturally, our Kids’ Menu and Dessert Menu are chock full of modern options too.

Famous for our burgers, we’ve also decided to make them stand alone. Rather, surf alone as we’ve given each magnificent stack burger its own surfing related name. The Wipeout has to be seen to be believed.
Check out our Burger Menu here.

As you’d expect, our kitchen team are always putting on specials. Just don’t expect to find them on a blackboard hidden somewhere in the bar – we print these out every morning and place them on your table to save your legs.

Eat, Drink, Stay, Save

Our pyes (we know you spell them pie, but we spell them pye!) are legendary, as our are homemade puddings, so we do an ever-changing Pye & Pud discount every Monday and Tuesday.

On Wednesday and Thursday, we offer 10% off our range of burgers. Friday is Fishy Fryday – and there is nothing fishy about the discount too.

We also run a hugely popular Loyalty Club so if you visit often or live nearby you or your family can get 10% off meals, drinks and even accommodation. T&Cs apply.

Dining Options

Al Fresco

The best way to eat and drink here is outside in the sun, so take your pick of our al fresco dining options: on the terrace overlooking the sea; on the grassy area under the shade of our jumbrella – please don’t get stuck on our giant deckchair! Or you can eat in the children’s play area so the kids can keep playing.

But when the weather turns, you’ve got plenty of dining options to choose from indoors too.


Driftwood is light, airy, beautifully designed and very popular whatever the weather, especially with our long, banquet style high table.

Surf Bar

Situated in the heart of the place, the Surf Bar is small and cosy and aside from the bar area is the only place where you can dine with your dogs in tow.

Beach Hut

Beach Hut is just a lovely place to eat. Booking tip: ask for table 13. There’s nothing unlucky about it. In fact, we are not alone in considering it to offer the finest bay view in the place.

The Bar

You’d think The Bay View Inn restaurant would have an enormous bar – and you’d be so, so wrong. But our modest little bar sure packs a punch in terms of its great selection of premium Cornish gins, local ales and over 30 of the world’s best gins.

The décor is cool too. Designer lights. Long low leather chairs. Witty Simon Clarke paintings. Whether you’re drinking or dining here, you’ll have fun doing it – even if you’re a celebrity

Private events

With fabulous indoor and al fresco dining option- most with panoramic sea views to choose from – we can turn wedding receptions, christenings, birthday parties or corporate conferences truly memorable.
