The Old Coastguard

Pub with Rooms
The Old Coastguard is situated at the edge of the iconic Cornish harbour of Mousehole and run by brothers Charles & Edmund Inkin, it sits immediately above the sea, with a palm lined garden running down towards the rocks. It has 14 bedrooms, nearly all looking out over glistening inland waters, with views to St. Michael's Mount and the Lizard.

Described as a 'Restaurant with rooms in one of Britain's most beautiful places'.

And a dining room and outside terrace sitting atop a tropical garden that slopes down to the harbour wall.

What style cuisine is on offer at The Old Coastguard?

This is a traditional Brasserie menu that takes good ingredients and gives them a very simple but classic treatment. A menu that changes a little through the seasons.

*Lamb rump, olive oil potato, peas, sweetbreads, mint, spinach. *Fish stew, fennel, new potatoes, sea vegetables, aïoli. *Ray, swede, spinach, crisp potato, café de Paris butter, curry oil.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at The Old Coastguard?

Each bedroom has a view of the sea, many with nothing between it, the garden and a few rocks. Some enjoy a mere glimpse, others an astonishing panorama from a top floor balcony. From many, the hypnotic St. Clement's Isle takes the eye, resolutely distracting one's gaze from The Lizard, St. Michael's Mount and departing fishing boats.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Mousehole area?

The iconic Cornish harbour of Mousehole has decent cafés and restaurants, and galleries hidden in its network of tiny streets. For those who aim to move further afield, the wonderful open air Minack Theatre is a 20min car journey away, plus the wonder of West Penwith's beaches and coastline all just 15 minutes away.
