We suffered a fire (on 19th June) which means we're currently closed until late March 2020. A firm timetable is now in place and we can promise a bright, shiny new building in the New Year that provides us with a better than ever backdrop to what we do. If you'd like to know more please email us here.
If you'd like to find somewhere else to eat or stay in West Cornwall, please try our sister inn, The Gurnard's Head.  You can email them here.

We open our new start up in Penzance, The Vault Kitchen, which will be the team's home until The Old Coastguard re-opens.  Email the team here for more on The Vault Kitchen.

The Winter Escape.  Last date for our winter offer to coincide with the return of BST.  1+ night's Dinner B&B from £165 per couple.  Sunday - Thursday only.  To check availability, drop us an email to our Roundhouse team.


Gift Vouchers

Ever popular resolutions to difficult present problems, our vouchers can be with you within a couple of days.

For any amount, or for a particular offer, they last at least 12 months and we’re happy to extend them if needed. They are usable at any of our three little Inns.

Do email us here if you think we can help. Sad as it was to leave our previous Blue Peter efforts, we now have proper voucher holders to make for a better present all round.

Looking ahead to Winter

Dinner B&B from £165 for 2 people

The Winter Escape will return when we re-open in January or February.  Dinner B&B with up to 3 courses at supper from anywhere on our menu, your room and breakfast.  Just email us here for more details and availability.

You can stay as many nights as you like and can choose whether to eat here with us or make your way over to our sister inn, The Gurnard's Head.  For availability and prices, please do drop an email to our Roundhouse team.



Many of you come for a bit of eat, plenty of sleep and perhaps a little drink. And you love to have the freedom to do what you want during the day. But some may wish for a little more structure.

So we introduced some new calendar of evens to bring you together with some of the very talented people who live here in Cornwall.

Have a look at our new Calendar click here.  It includes not only the events that we put on ourselves, but the many festivals in the area around us.

Residential packages will include your stay, breakfast, dinner, transport and the cost of the course.


After our fire in June, we are very sad to be closed through the remainder of 2019 while we rebuild the damaged areas.  We expect to be open again in early 2020.

While we are closed, our team's home will be at our new start-up in Penzance, The Vault Kitchen.  Open (Thursday - Monday) from 9am for coffee and breakfast.  Great food from 12pm.  No bookings.  Dogs welcome.

The Gurnard's Head will be open right through the Autumn and we would encourage you to try to visit if you are in Cornwall. The team there are truly doing special things.

When we reopen, we will have a story to tell, with new Head Chef, Jamie Porter, in place and a team who will be longing to see their guests again.  We hope it won't be too long.

Our annual calendar of events is now available (click here for a PDF) and has details of festivals in the area, our own workshops and exhibitions, as well as all the dates that matter.


Our first offer back in 2003 at The Griffin, and still properly popular. Kick back with us for Sunday lunch, the papers and maybe an afternoon on the terrace.

Then supper, a good night's sleep and breakfast on Monday morning.  From £240 per couple or then from £200 when the Winter Escape returns (from late October).

For more details of prices and availability of any of our offers, contact us via the website or send an email here.
