We're looking forward to opening again on 12 April.  For 5 weeks, we'll be open for a late breakfast, lunch and late afternoon drinking, outside only, but under canvas if the weather turns.  To book, please click on "Book a Table".

From 17 May, we hope to be open in the dining room and in the bedrooms.  To book a table (subject to a few restrictions on numbers) "Book a Table" to the top right.  To book a room, drop us an email via our enquiry page.

We re-opened in summer 2020 in a way that we think is safe for both our guests and our teams but which is designed to retain everything that is special about The Gurnard's Head.  

When open, we are mindful of our local community who support us right through the year and particularly did so over the course of this summer.  Our thanks go to them..


Ever popular resolutions to difficult present problems, our vouchers can be with you within a couple of days.

For any amount or for a particular offer, they last 12 months and we’re happy to extend them if needed.  They are usable not only here but at The Old Coastguard and at The Felin Fach Griffin up in Wales.

Do email us here if you think we can help.  Sad as it was to leave our previous Blue Peter efforts, we now have proper voucher holders to make for a better present all round.



The Old Coastguard

Open from 17 May

The garden at The Old Coastguard is currently full of JCBs and cement mixers as our landlord strengthens our border with the  sea.  It means we can't open outside there on 12 April.

So we aim for the next key date, 17 May, when we expect to be allowed to host guests in our rooms as well as eaters in the dining room.  

The Old Coastguard's garden remains one of West Cornwall's great spots.  If you're staying with us at The Gurnard's, we'd always recommend you find the opportunity to cross the peninsula to Mousehole.

Sunday Sleepover

Kick back with us for Sunday lunch, the papers and maybe an afternoon walk.  Then supper, a good night's sleep and a great breakfast on Monday morning.

From just £230 for two people (principally when the clocks are on BST), and from £210 when the Winter Escape is in place.

Into Summer

We look forward to opening again on 12 April.  It's been a heck of a haul for our teams.  When we open, it will be for breakfast (1000 - 1130, lunch (1230 - 1630) and drinks in the garden.

We expect to be allowed to let you inside from 17 May.  Some gentle restrictions on numbers (please ask if you need a pointer) and many of the rules we got used to last Autumn.  

Our bedrooms really are now pretty fully booked until the end of September but we do have the odd gap here and there and we do expect cancellations as plans for overseas travel becomes a little clearer.

To book a table for any time from 12 April, just click on our Book a Table button at the top.  To enquire about room availability, drop us an email via the Contact Us page and we will come back to you as soon as we can.
