A new bar at Watergate Bay, open since Friday 17th May


Watchful Mary

A new continental-style bar set on a Cornish sea wall. We opened the doors to Watchful Mary on 17th May. Cocktail hour is here. And we’re ready.

Spirit. Served.

Sourced small-batch beer. Crafted cocktails. Small plates to keep conversation flowing.

Then dusk kicks in. And the music steps up.

Sign up to find out more and keep your eyes peeled across social for a taste of our watchful outlook.

See you on the shoreline…

Ever heard of The Green Flash? Watergate Bay Hotel’s Mary Ashworth sought it and caught it as she looked out to sea. A ray of colour, just as the sun slipped from view. If conditions are right we could see it ourselves.

I don’t believe in the Green Flash. Is it real?

Some people have seen it. Most haven’t. It’s up to you to decide. So drink up. All eyes west. Wait for it…

What are THE opening hours?

Summer months and holidays: 9am-11pm, all week. Otherwise: 9am-11pm Wednesday to Friday, closing at sunset on Sunday.

Can I book ahead?

No, just turn up and find a spot. Special event nights are a bit different (get in touch if you have an idea).

Is it child friendly?

For families, the best time is before sunset. From dusk, the music steps up.

Is it dog friendly?

The same goes for dogs. They’re welcome during the day.

Are there EVENTS?

There’s music every week: Watchful Live and Watchful Lates.
