THE LOOK AND FEEL
Characteristic of Hugh Town's historical architecture, The Atlantic is housed in a striking granite, maritime-style building that was formerly three separate cottages. Subsequently converted into a hotel, it opened in 1801. The vibe is informal yet comfortable, a cosy bolthole that makes the most of its harbourside position boasting sea views from every perspective. There are crooked, angular rooms and heritage features including the original granite walls and an inglenook fireplace, along with an ancient boat mast that runs the length of the pub's ceiling.
Honing in on its waterfront position, The Atlantic offers a host of comfortable spaces to dine and relax with a beverage throughout the day; there's the Waterside restaurant and terrace, the bar and lounge area and the snug, all overlooking the harbour, with far-reaching views across to the port and Porthmellon Beach. Service is attentive and friendly, with staff offering helpful tips and advice for planning your day.
