Welcome to The Bowgie Inn!
We are open all day everyday for drinks and coffee from 11am. Food is served 11am to 3pm and from 5pm to 9pm on weekdays. Also, all day from 11am at the weekend and during school holidays.
Perfectly perched on the West Pentire Headland, overlooking the golden sands of Crantock Beach, near the popular surfing and family destination of Newquay.
The Bowgie is the place where you can momentarily escape to a slower pace of life with mind-blowing views and an enviable cliff-top location.
The panoramic coastal views of the unspoiled beach of Crantock, Polly Joke, the Gannel and the dramatic headlands nearby, help to inspire and regenerate the soul.
The ‘Bowgie’ which is Cornish for ‘cowshed’ is one of Cornwall’s most well-known and loved pubs, and has one of the most incredible beer gardens in the whole country. Andy Pickles has owned the pub for over 45 years and back in the 1970s, he used to grow potatoes in the field on the cliff edge to make the pub chips! You can still see some of the original features of the old farm building which The Bowgie once was up until the 1950s, and hidden gems and traditional charm can still be seen throughout the pub.
Whether you want to warm up next to the roaring fire with a coffee after a chilly walk, catch some rays on our sun terrace with a glass of wine, refuel with some traditional home-cooked food or try a delicious Cornish gin from our huge selection – you will always be guaranteed a friendly welcome from owners Andy and Sally Pickles.
We have been so lucky to run The Bowgie for the last 43 years. Not only are we privileged to live and work in such a stunning location, but we love getting to know you.
We have lots of loyal, local customers and visitors who come back year after year – we get to see their families grow and love hearing stories about previous holidays and their fond memories of The Bowgie.
Children are welcome accompanied by adults in our designated family areas but sorry, no dogs are allowed inside. Our outside area is fantastic for our four-legged friends, and you can even pick up a bonio from a jar on the bar, with a donation to the wonderful Cornish charity, K9 Crusaders. http://www.caninecrusaders.org.uk
We look forward to seeing you soon!
