Latest Information regarding safe practices

  • We have two one-way systems – one for inside tables (which will need to be booked in advance) and one for the decking area. Please just follow the signs!
  • Please wear face masks until seated at your table and use the sanitiser sprays provided on entry and exit.
  • We will provide table service only, so please do not come to the bar.
  • There will be no printed menus, so please click on the menu tab below for the most recent menu which can be saved to your phone. Large menus will also be available so you can take a photo on the day.

Inside tables:

  • These will need to be booked in advance and will be for a maximum of 6 people.
  • We will provide table service only, so please stay at your table.
  • Track and Trace – Please download the NHS App and use the QR code located on entering or exiting the building. For those without a smart phone, we will take your details for you which will be safely stored for 21 days.

Outside tables:

  • Outside tables are on a first come, first served basis and knowing what the British weather can be like, drinks and food can be served in biodegradable containers so you can take them with you should the weather turn. Maximum table sizes of 6. (Please don’t move any tables as they are all measured out)
  • When you arrive, please enter the decking area via the steps in the car park, find a table, and our staff will come out and take your order and payment. Please do not come inside. If there are no free tables, then I’m afraid we are at capacity.
  • If you need to use the toilets, please go via the main Reception door and exit back through the same door. Please do not walk through the restaurant.

Finally, this is a learning curve for us all, so we ask for your patience while we find our feet and please don’t forget – these measures have been put in place to protect us all, so please be kind! 😉

Bar Lounge - C-Bay café/bar/bistro

C-Bay Café/Bar/Bistro opened in October 2013 and sits with an unsurpassed view over Crantock Beach and the coastline beyond. The café feel during the day is enhanced by delicious breakfasts, home-baked cakes, fresh ‘Olfactory Coffee’ and iced smoothies – with regular updates on our Facebook page to tempt you through the doors! Lunch consists of a variety of ciabatta’s, sandwiches and chicken, fish and vegetarian options together with more substantial meals such as burgers and fish & chips. Our traditional Afternoon Tea, served with Tregothnan tea is also not to be missed or our Cornish Cream Tea served with Rodda’s cream and Boddington’s strawberry jam.

Our more sophisticated evening menu incorporates locally sourced seasonal ingredients to create mouth-watering dishes with Cornish and British influences, alongside popular dishes such as our classic ‘C-Bay’ burger in a Baker Tom bun and locally caught sustainable fish.

You can choose to dine in either C-Bay, our new Bar Lounge, on the huge sun terrace or in the garden – wherever the mood or occasion takes you. Wherever you are, you can be assured of stunning views across Crantock Beach and the coastline beyond and due to our close proximity to the South West Coastal Footpath, we are happy to welcome dogs to C-Bay too!

Christenings, Weddings, Anniversaries or Private Parties are catered for all year round. Please call 01637 830229 to discuss your requirements and preferred date.
