Our names are Leigh and Adrian Santi; we have 3 Sons and a dog. 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?
November 2003 we started the main renovation of the bar and restaurant, we tried to keep all changes sympathetic to the pubs unique atmosphere and we have had lots of new visitors with the improved facilities e.g. the light and airier new restaurant, disabled access and W.C air conditioning .
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.
Our menu is varied and bolstered by all sorts of specials on our daily board
We have a selection of interesting wines and some lovely local real ales from the likes of Skinners, Cornish Chough, Crown, Bays and Rebel 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.
