The Old Coastguard

Open for lunch and supper every day

The garden at The Old Coastguard now has the most magnificent terrace above the rocks. Really one of Cornwall's best locations. If you're staying with us at The Gurnard's we'd always recommend a visit across the peninsula to Mousehole.    

Lunch on The Terrace while the sun's out. Or grab a drink from The Crab Shack halfway down the garden.  The restaurant and bar is open for lunch and dinner every day of the week.

Sunday Sleepover

Kick back with us for Sunday lunch, the papers and maybe an afternoon walk.  Then supper, a good night's sleep and a great breakfast on Monday morning.

From just £310 for two people (principally when the clocks are on BST), and from £260 when the Winter Escape is in place.  

To check availability for any of our offers or to book a table, do drop us an email here




We're open every day for supper from 6pm and lunch from 12pm.

At lunchtime you'll find our Lunch for Less menu which runs alongside our usual menu (at lunch, clearly) Monday to Saturday.  At £25 for 2 courses or £30 for 3, it really is cracking value.

If you'd like to book a table, click on the Book a Table button at the top.  If you find you can't book what you'd like, please do drop us an email via the Contact Us page.

The Winter Escape runs until the clocks go forward and our diary is very much open for bookings through to the end of March 2024 and beyond.

Please drop us an email if you'd like to take advantage of our Spring Sleepover. Multi-night Dinner B&B stays where the per night rate gets a little better the longer you stay.
