The Old Coastguard

The Parade, Mousehole, Penzance, Cornwall, TR19 6PR

The laid-back atmosphere of this revamped seaside hotel in Mousehole is evident the minute you enter the wood-panelled bar and dining room. Here, seasonal ingredients are precisely cooked – and with Newlyn’s fishing fleet moored just two miles away, it’s little surprise to see seafood dominating the menu. If your mini diners are bored of the same old pasta options, you'll be pleased to see that mussels and fresh fish are on the children’s menu too. Food aside  – and a fantastic wine list, to boot – the ambience is relaxing, erring on lazy. A weekend coffee can easily slip into a long lunch, while you watch the water twinkling beyond tropical gardens and listen to mellow background music. With train tracks and all manner of toys for the kids, families fit in easily, as do sleeping dogs. But then, with the Inkin brothers of The Gurnard’s Head now at the helm of The Old Coastguard, they’ve had a little practise in making the finer things in life seem easy.
