UNBELIEVABLE
Lamorna itself has a lovely feal to it and is very pretty,the pub however is another story.Its not so much the pub as the very misserable and rude little old lady that runs it.We fealt very unwelcome and that the old lady begrudged us being there.All in all a very unpleasant experience from what could be a fantastic little pub,the only way i would visit again is if the pub changed hands!

All pubs are the same
Don't just pick on the 'Wink' I have had that from lots of other pubs. Their opening and closing times are on the door and that's that. I work within the tourist business and find it hard to close up. If I stay open for one then I have to stay open for all and then I would not be able to carry on the next day!

Walked a bit on coast path from Treen. Turned up exactly when pub closed at 2.30 (as the blackboard said outside the door) and as the last lady was leaving of a group of people we were about 15 metres from the door when it was slammed shut an windows were closed theatrically. How rude is that? Maybe the 'Landlady' could've had the courtesey to have come out to say they were about to close?
I believe in two way respect ... this 'lady' in the pub obviously does not.
My mother spent a period of her childhood in Lamorna. I am fiercely proud of that. I rest my case.

Apology
I apologize to Denzil Penburthy. He can spell his real or assumed name any way wants.

Support for the Wink
Denzil Penburthy can't even spell his assumed name so not surprising his tirade of unnecessary and unpleasant abuse. I have been visiting the pub for several years from when Diane Drennan and her husband Bob ran it. Bob died a few years back and Dianne has continued on her own doing the best she can. There are no pretensions here it is just an authentic country pub that is also a home for the licensee. The Lamorna Wink is part of the deep atmosphere that draws people to Lamorna Cove. The eccentric and metaphoric dusty vision of the 'Wink' is far better than the 'Mafia' operated car park further down the road. Take it for what it is. There is a lot more than meets the eye!

We have visited this pub twice and enjoyed both our visits as we found the establishment to be very quirky, eccentric and in a time warp. We had a pastiy each on our first visit, they were luke warm and not very tasty. The two old ladies seemed as though they couldn't be bothered to serve us and were more concerned about the welfare of their dogs. We visited again yesterday, everything seemed the same, perhaps it was a little more dusty but I had a very refreshing glass of cider and we made conversation with a couple who seemed to be regulars at the pub. This place is in urgent need of some tlc but I can recommend it to those who love eccentricity and enjoy studying knick knacks. The two old ladies who run it are tired and should hand the place over to some new blood to inject life into it, give it a good clean and get it back on its feet without destroying its charm and quirkiness. It's patently obvious the two ladies are no longer physically able to run the Wink. If they carry on as they are doing the pub will die a slow lingering death.

Unpretentious and relaxing
It depends what you expect really. I have had many relaxing and enjoyable drinks here, and as long as you don't expect it to be a plastic flashy so-called gastropub, it is ok really.

what a shithole
unfriendly felt about as welcome as a wet fart even though that would smell better than the lamorna stink my grannies undies smell better than that place. The woman looked like she had been exhumed and had no personality just a bad attitude and very abusive. needless to say i will never return to this dive again this is the only place ive ever had to wipe my feet on my way out.

Must get an award!!!
Words fail me but here goes... Can somebody please buy this pub from this proud lady who should not have to earn a living like this. She should be able to enjoy her dogs and her old age and allow this pub to become a real gem again. I don't know her life story but it was so sad to visit in August 2011, don't look at it as you see it now but how it was twenty years ago. If I had @~$,&^&* spare I'd make an offer and return the pub to a classic local and oasis for the visitors. Please hope this pub lives to fight another day.

Disappointed again
A couple of years ago,myself & four friends stopped here for lunch,the food was fine,but as I don,t like cold drinks I had coffee with my meal.just before finishing my meal,I asked for another cup of coffee only to be told they were no longer serving coffee.I was a little disappointed by this as it felt that once they'd had our money they could'nt wait to get rid of us & I vowed never to go there again.Today I made the mistake of going there again!This time there were six of us,I went to the bar & asked for two coffees only to be advised I'd need to get them from the kitchen,no problem,I queued at the hatch,only to be told they were not serving coffee today! All the gentleman behind the bar needed to say was sorry,we're not serving coffee today,is there no communication?Needless to say,the two of us wanting coffee did not bother to purchase an alternative drink & will not bother returning to such an unfriendly place,I was obviously right the first time!

Give it a miss
I'm afraid we have to agree with the negative comments i.e. Bizarre, weird, rude, grubby and unfriendly. Who cares what the beer & food tastes like if you're not made to feel welcome ! Shame as Lamorna itself is lovely and we stayed only 100 yards form the pub.

An old fashioned pub that serves a great beer, no 'have a good day here' thank goodness.

Bizarre, grubby and rude!
We visited very recently - 18.07.09. Not a warm welcome - were told to sit outside or through there with children so we sat next to the toilets which were extremely smelly. Glasses were dirty and whole atmosphere did not make one want to stay. I come from a village and this was not typical of a warm, welcoming village pub. We felt uncomfortable and unwelcome and rather nauseous on leaving. Lunch - no thank you.
