On the beach

View of the beach from the Watering Hole bar.

Why aren’t there more pubs on beach­es?

The Water­ing Hole at Per­ran­porth in Corn­wall real­ly is an extreme­ly civilised place.

It has excel­lent ale (St Austell Prop­er Job – a change from the ubiq­ui­tous Trib­ute) and decent bar food. It must be one of the only pubs where it’s accept­able to enter with bare feet.

The ser­vice is also real­ly friend­ly, with fam­i­lies, dogs and lone-wan­der­ing Lon­don­ers all warm­ly wel­comed.

  1. We’ve only ever been to Lyme Reg­is at its raini­est when every­thing was shut, so we’ve nev­er seen ’em – will have to try to get there for a day trip soon.

  2. You’re right, that does look love­ly. Tony Bour­dain says he only feels tru­ly relaxed when eat­ing or drink­ing with sand between his toes. He’s got a point.

  3. The Wreck­ers bar at Hart­land Quay is worth a vis­it if you’re about that way. About the most spec­tac­u­lar place I’ve sunk a pint.
