Happy Friday.  Our teams are migrating back to work as our re-openings gather pace.  It's great to see them back, there must be little good that can come of being away from work for such a long period, particularly when early on in their career.  All we need now is you. 

We’re now back open at The Gurnard’s Head and plan to re-open the doors at The Griffin on Monday (26th).  Both outdoors only, for the moment.  Over in Mousehole, our garden looks like Agincourt as our sea wall acquires some much needed underpinning.  So we’ll open back up there on 17 May when we can once again beckon our guests back indoors.

With a new incumbent as Head Chef at The Griffin, an 8th bedroom at each of The Gurnard’s and The Griffin and the gradual birth of a new terrace in Mousehole, we’re tentatively hoping for a vibrant summer.  We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Wales: Full Steam Ahead

The First Minister has accelerated Wales’ re-opening this week, not only confirming we can open outside on Monday (26 April) but bringing forward inside opening (technically Level 2 of some framework possibly long forgotten) to Monday 17 May.  So that is what we will do.

To book to eat with us outdoors (under cover of a tent; breakfast & lunch) from Monday 26 April, or indoors (under cover of a roof; breakfast, lunch & supper) from 17 May click here and follow the link in the bio.   Briefly: our outdoors opening will be Monday - Sunday, breakfast (9 – 11), lunch (12 – 3) and drinks (until about 6).  Lunch on Sunday until 5pm, maximum of 6 people (excl. U11s) and no (thank heavens) household restrictions.  We await some rules for indoors…

We’d love you to stay with us if you can (from 17 May).  Availability is diminishing rapidly, but please drop us an email here to check.  If nothing else, book in a September Sleepover for the rapidly approaching Autumn.  Next month we’ll bring you some photographic evidence of our new Room 8 which we has got even our ageing blood up.

Open On One Side Of West Penwith

The Gurnard's Head

We’ve been open since 12 April at The Gurnard’s Head.  Outdoors only, generally under a tent from Jabula Tents, occasionally not.  Breakfast and lunch and drinks until the sun disappears.  A brisk easterly has interrupted things this week: sadly not even God’s representative on earth has been able to influence that in our favour.

We’ll open fully on 17 May, in both bedrooms and in the dining rooms.  To book a table, outdoors until 16 May, or indoors beyond that, click here and follow the link in the bio: much quicker than emailing us.  For the moment, tables of up to 6 (excl. U11) inside although that could change as we head into June.   

To book a room, drop us an email, although gaps are not hugely widespread.  From early June, we’ll have a new Room 8 up and running there as well.  We’ll hold back on photos of drying plaster for the moment.

Meanwhile In Mousehole

The Old Coastguard

Diggers and dump trucks have replaced picnic tables and parasols in the garden at The Old Coastguard.  Some prosaic but necessary work to underpin the sea wall is on track to be finished in early May.  The mind-blowing by-product of the work will be a new terrace at the bottom of the garden just above the rocks.  We can’t put into words (or pictures yet) quite how transformational this will be for anyone visiting us over the summer.   Landlords sometimes take some stick, but we’ve a lot to thank ours for.

It means we will stay closed there until 17 May, when we can open indoors and in the bedrooms.  In truth, there are not too many gaps in our bedrooms between now and the Autumn, something that feels a touch bittersweet.  But cancellations happen and waiting lists exist.  If you’d like to book to eat with us from 17 May, click below and follow the link in the bio.


Pictures, No Words

Marketing theorists keep telling us to use less words.  We’re sure they’re technically right, but we’re stubborn.  If you prefer photos to an essay, please follow us on Instagram.  It may be a better way of staying in touch with what we’re up to.  Click below to follow any (or all) of our three Instagram pages.
