Mullion Cove Hotel Bar and Restaurant

Mullion, Cornwall TR12 7EP
If you can judge a hotel by its bar and restaurant, then the Mullion Cove must be one of Cornwall's finest. Overlooking the harbour of this tiny seaside hamlet, its art-deco Glenbervie Bar is named after one of the region's best-known shipwrecks, when not only were all 16 crew saved but hundreds of barrels of rum, brandy and whisky were 'rescued' by thirsty locals. Now, along with lucky guests, they get to continue the local drinking tradition in this cosy watering-hole, which is the perfect place for a n early evening sundowner or a nightcap later on.

It also serves food from a changing bistro-style menu (great steaks, locally caught fish and chips, homemade burgers and light bites like Scotch eggs and crab salads) all day from 12.30pm till 9pm – a good alternative to the more formal delights served in the award-winning Atlantic View Restaurant, which makes the most of the coastal location, not only laying on brilliant views across Mounts Bay while you eat but serving the best local fish and seafood from their daily changing two AA- rosette menu – it recently won 'Best Hotel Restaurant in Cornwall' by Cornwall Life magazine. You can enjoy 3 courses here for £39.95; give them 24 hours' notice and they'll put together a mountainous seafood platter, or in season you can feast on fabulous Helford River oysters and local mussels, and the freshest local mackerel, sea trout and sea bass, as well as superb local beef and lamb, throughout the year.  The service is very attentive, and they also serve an excellent Sunday Lunch and Afternoon Tea.

Just the thing after a hard day on the coastal path, but worth a special trip at any time.
