The EDS Wine Dinner season continues with a dinner celebrating the wines of Atlantic facing regions at The Old Coastguard.  £60 a head.  More details from here.

Village Christmas Feast.  A one-off Christmas lunch for those who lives around us.  £19.50 for three courses.  Book directly with the 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.

We donate 5% of voucher sales in each December to our chosen charities. This year, we've raised almost £1,500 for Cornwall Hospice Care, National Coastwatch Institution and Cancer Research Wales.

Into Autumn and Winter

Dinner B&B from £155 a night 

There appears to be little incentive in Winter to take more than the odd night off.  But at grey times of the year, you may think you deserve to treat yourself.

So the Winter Escape was born to give our guests the chance to join us for a night on a truly great value offer. Just one night that can feel like a real break.

From £155 a couple for up to 3 courses at supper from anywhere on our menu, your room and breakfast.  Sunday - Thursday and outside of holiday and half terms.  Just email us here.

And, what's more, 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.

Starting Sunday 29th October and running until late March.  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 sleepover packages to bring you together with some of the very talented people who live here in Cornwall.

We have a full calendar of events, including the festivals which take place around us: if you'd like a PDF please drop us an email here

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

The next date for the 2017 programme is our Yoga Weekend with Leif Olsen which runs from 10 - 12 November.  Open to non-residents at £100 per person.

Wine Dinners

Our Friday night wine suppers seem to be quickly booked out, so we hope we've found the right balance between cost and excitement. 

Stay in touch with news of these and other events by liking our Facebook page, registering as a friend of EDS on our Become A Friend page or drop an email to
our Roundhouse team.

Next up on 3 November is a dinner with the newest addition to our cast of wine importers, Carte Blanche Wines.  £60 a head.  More details from here.

Christmas and New Year

We close as ever after lunch on Christmas Eve and reopen for lunch on Boxing Day.  We are then open right up until our annual paint and mend closure on Monday 8 January. 

This year we host our inaugural Winter Craft Fair on Friday 10 November.  Stalls run by local artists and craftspeople, food & drink producers.  Entry free.  11am - 3pm.

The run up to Christmas is always busy with the annual Harbour Lights switched on from Saturday 16 December.  If you'd like to eat with us in that period, we always recommend booking

Our New Year's Eve party this year as ever has a theme.  For more information on what it is and everything else you need to know, drop us an email here.


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 £227.50 per couple and then from £190 while the Winter Escape is in place (from 29th October).

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