One of the few nightclubs in town and part of Newquay folklore. The pub is open every day, the club is only open Saturday nights out of season, but in season opens on various nights. This is where you go for your cheap and cheerful drinks, don’t expect a mind blowing cocktail, it’s likely your feet will stick to the floor if you get there later on as well!

This used to be ‘The Breaks’, but it was pretty much demolished, so this is the replacement. As the name suggests it’s like an old colonial house inside, but with views out to Tolcarne beach. Accessed by steps, or across the beach when the tide is out. They do a decent Pina Colada!

This one is a private beach, but generally as long as it’s not booked out for a wedding, you can go down. This is right on the beach and accessed via steps. You can get to it when the tide is out, but it has to be really out! They do amazing hot chocolates, like they’ve melted a chocolate bar in a mug!

Perched on Pentire Headland, there’s lots of opportunities for views here, but if it’s sunny, IT WILL be busy. You can also walk the headland, with views to Fistral on one side, and Crantock to the other. Out of season, it’s a bit of a trendy local’s hang out. We walk to it, but bare in mind it is further than most, and they have a free car park, so if you’re unsure if you can walk it, then drive.

Wednesday they sometimes do 2 for 1, if they’ve not advertised it, message them and ask them on Facebook as sometimes they honour it! Mainly pizza’s and burger’s, but they do other stuff.

In my opinion, this is THE place to go for a Sunday Carvery. Sometimes they do an offer where you can get a cheap dessert when ordering with your carvery. It does get hot in here though!

A completely different side to other places in Newquay, this place looks out over the boating lake, and is quite pretty at night with the twinkly lights. They sometimes have pie/ steak nights so worth calling before hand to check and always book.

The Garden Tea Room Recently taken over, they are situated in Trenance Gardens. The tea room itself is tiny, only accommodating approx. 20 inside, but they usually have a marquee outside and you go for the outside seating anyway. They do good cake and coffee with a choice of plant and dairy milks! Their hot chocolates look amazing too!

Is the idea of riding across the beach one of your dreams? Well you’re in luck, just down the road at the boating lake, you can find the riding stables. Book in advance because the rides are determined by the tides, but you can ride along the gannel and on to Crantock beach.

Go see the poppies! They're totally seasonal, I’m no gardner but it seems to be April-June time, but beware if there are any storms, they’ll most likely be battered so there bloom can be short lived. Never the less, that headland provides a lovely walk, and you can go down to one of the local favourites, Polly Joke beach.
