The Gurnard's Head

Roaring fires, cows grazing outside the window and the wild Atlantic on the doorstep: this is the sort of ends-of-earth place where you can kick off your walking boots and chill out with the dog at your feet. Just a few minutes’ walk inland from one of the wildest stretches of Cornwall’s coastline, here you can pull up a pew by the fire or at the bar and enjoy Cornish ales, unusual wines and an upmarket menu packed with Cornish fish, game and produce plucked from the surrounding coast and countryside.

They do sumptuous Sunday roasts, a simple selection hearty well-priced lunch dishes, and a slightly more refined and pricey dinner menu. The food is great and it’s as cosy as you like, but despite its rustic appearance, the fine art hanging beneath the rafters, a selection of travel literature lining the shelves and, above all, the high the calibre of the cuisine, are all hints that this remote country inn is the sort of place that knows just how to serves up the finer things in life with panache.
