Everyone likes to sip a cool, crisp pint in the fresh air; it’s one of life’s simple pleasures which is why we love a beer garden. Which is why many of us have cut short a journey or made a detour in order to stop at a pub that specifically has a beer garden. However, most people don’t have high expectations when it comes to an outside area.
People don’t expect flower beds or manicured lawns and they certainly don’t expect an epiphony-inducing view. Often, people accept a mediocre patio or a picnic bench in the car park. So you can of course imagine the dumbfoundedness that is experienced by anyone new to the Bowgie Inn, Crantock! The views from our beer garden are so spectacular that our punters often need to sit down with a drink to catch their breath and allow their pulse to return to normal. Luckily, with ample seating available, they can choose the best seat in the house to recover and rejoice in the beauty of Crantock.
We enjoy the view every day and are still awe-struck every time we look out across the bay. We love it so much, we’ve set up our very own Surf Cam so you can enjoy the view as much as we can! https://bowgie.com/surf
We have conducted our own highly scientific studies (we wore white coats and everything) and we have come to the conclusion that beer tastes better when you drink it outside. Plus, because of our DNA, genetics and whatnot, we are happier when we drink and eat in the open air. So next time you decide to stop off at a pub with a beer garden, make sure it’s a good one. Make sure it’s this one!!
