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.

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.

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.

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.
