Our names are Leigh and Adrian Santi. We moved to Porthleven and The Atlantic in 2002, after looking at what seemed like a hundred other pubs (although it was probably only thirty or so). We took one look at the Atlantic’s location and spoke to a few of the wonderful local people and decided this was the place to be.
My family has been in the pub trade for thirty years, although I did have another career for a few years before having the children.
The Atlantic Inn is the first pub we have owned. Previously we were tenants to either breweries or pub companies; can you guess which we prefer?
We have very lively Saturday night entertainment. During the week we hold pub quizzes, bingo and darts, as our regular customers are mainly local people you can get a real sense of the Cornish.
During the lockdown we have completely redecorated the pub and dinning room making it much lighter and airier and the introduction of Little Thai Kitchen as our food offering means we are now looking forward to a new Atlantic Inn adventure.
We have a selection of interesting wines and some lovely real ales from the likes of Sharps, Tintagel, Dartmoor and Exeter breweries.
On a clear day sat on our terrace you can have uninterrupted views from The Lizard to Mousehole.
We feel extremely lucky to live in such a beautiful place, come and see us soon.
