SEA SALTS & ALE 10 - 12 July 2015 Every other year Mousehole hosts the wonderful Sea Salts & Sail festival, showcasing much that is best about this part of the world.

In the odd numbered years, The Old Coastguard Hotel holds a music weekend which they've christened Sea Salts & Ales.

As well as some of our favourite bands - The Odd Folk, Super 8’s, Kezia and the Slap Dash Trio - they are also selling two ales to raise funds for the 2016 festival, so why not come along for a great evening of music and drink and help support our festival for 2016 ?  We will also be displaying some of the famous SSS boards which sold out last year so this is your chance to get hold of one !  For more information about the weekend contact the Old Coastguard Hotel on 01736 731222 or
