    First time at the restaurant since the menu and name changed and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Tasty food at a very reasonable price, attentive service and a fabulous view across the harbour!

    This hotel and restaurant are dog friendly???? We felt segregated as we were not even in the restaurant. I understand we had a dog but feel we were not actually in the restaurant but on our own in the restaurant foyer. If you are dog friendly then at least have tables inside the restaurant.

    Had afternoon tea. Good choice of sandwiches, scones and cakes, all beautifully presented and utterly delicious. Table in quiet dining area with lovely views over Penzance and the sea. Could have been more attentive with the drinks as was difficult to get attention of staff to request refills - and to pay the bill when we had finished and wanted to leave. But this is minor and did not spoil enjoyment.

    The evening was a great experience from start to finish. The staff were all very polite. A nice touch was we were asked if we would like to sit by the window that had a super view over the harbour. The food was excellent. We both had the chicken and chocolate mousse for dessert which was yummy.
