We’d really love to be writing to you about something other than closing and opening, but whether we are open is probably just a bit too fundamental to what we do for us not to communicate it.  So please bear with us as we give you news of yet another re-opening and please excuse us for being a touch commercial: it rather matters at the moment. 
We won’t pretend the weeks have flown past but it’s good to be planning to open the doors again in Cornwall.  We now know that we can open from the start of play on Wednesday 2nd December and so we intend to do so.  More on the specifics below, including details of our Village Feasts which we bring back for another year.
If you can make it to us, we’d love to see you.  If you can’t, please have the very best December you can and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.

The Gurnard's Head

Gurnard's Head
We open from 5.30pm for supper on Wednesday 2nd.   Although the bedrooms are busy from the 3rd, we’ve availability on the night of the 2nd, with our Winter Escape in place and remaining decent value at from £175 a night for two people for dinner, room and breakfast.  If you’d like to check availability in December, ask the team here.

December lunches feature a new £27.50 (3 courses) Prix Fixe menu.  Delicious food with just a sniff of a Christmas leaning.  And this year two Village Feasts on Saturday 12 December and Friday 18 December.  £23.50 for three courses for a Christmas lunch with crackers and bad jokes.  We hope that these Feasts will be a good way for our community to at least feel together, even if they don’t sit together.

And across the moor to Mousehole

Old Coastguard
The doors open from midday on Wednesday 2nd for lunch.  And a £25 Prix Fixe lunch menu (3 courses) right from the start and all through December.   Bedroom availability right through December is a little sticky, but we really do expect a few cancellations as the new Tier arrangements kick in.  We could definitely find a Winter Escape room for you on the 2nd if you’d like to make a break for it.

Our Mousehole Village Feasts will be on Friday 11 December and Saturday 19 December.   Same price, same arrangements.  And everyone welcome, whether from our village or from further afield.

The Rules?

When we re-open, Cornwall will remain in Tier 1.  The Government has promised it will review these Tiers every 14 days, so it’s not impossible to envisage we’ll be governed by different rules around Christmas.  As we have throughout the Summer and Autumn, we’ll do our best to ensure our spaces are somewhere you feel pretty safe.

As it is, those who live within Tier 1 can visit in groups of up to 6 and from unlimited households.  If you’re visiting from Tier 2 areas (so many of you, we’re sure), your own rules will apply, so only single households (with the odd exception).  If you’re visiting from Tier 3, well, you probably shouldn’t be.  Our usual plan is to check these things when you book with us.

While we've your attention, we'd like to applaud the rest of this brilliant industry which has today had the devastating news that they are subject to the  Government's Tiers 2 or 3.  Many are effectively forced to close, others will decide to do so as it just isn't viable to open.  The hospitality sector is made up of 100s of thousands of individuals, many struggling to make ends meet even when they are allowed to cheerily clean plates or pour our drinks.  Hospitality Action is a wonderful charity that looks out for them.  If you feel like supporting it, you can do so here

Meanwhile back in Wales

Felin Fach Griffin
We remain open in Wales.  For the moment.  We hope it can remain so as The Griffin is a proper haven at this time of the year for cold toes and empty stomachs.  The rules: up to four people with no restrictions on households, no visitors (probably) from Tiers 2 and 3 in England, families of more than 4 can visit together.   And always best to book, even for a drink.

Our Village Feasts in Wales are planned to be on Saturday 12 and Friday 18 December, rules permitting.  As in Cornwall, £23.50 for Christmas lunch and crackers.  We’re even exploring the possibility of some kind of outdoors carol service, but we’ll need to keep a close eye on the rules in Wales in the run up to Christmas.
