The Gurnards Head, nr Zennor

You won't get seaviews, but this iconic inn on the coastal road between St Ives and St Just is a great retreat after a bracing walk amongst the cliffside mining remains of West Cornwall, or high on the rugged moors. For many years it has been the favourite haunt of rock climbers, these days it's also popular with diners who come from miles around to sample the award winning food.
