Phoned Wednesday to book a table for a meal for 2. Arrived Saturday, table not set and a three quarter hour wait for our food. Small portions of OK fish and little portions of veggies served directly on plate were served. Wanted to leave quickly as noise levels required shouting any type of conversation. Decided to stay for desert. After...

Nice country style surroundings with a beautiful garden. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Reasonable menu choices and the food was good . They have fresh fish every day. Locally sourced food is very important on the menu.

Stayed here one night enroute to Cornwall. Clean room, excellent welcome from locals and meals that could not be better. Would definitely stay again. Just wish it was near motorway, had trouble finding it, but well worth the hunt.

Had a great roast here today, it was my first visit to this place and won't be my last. This place has had a lot of time and money spent on the look and style which has paid off but quality of food, drink and staff are what makes a good place and this place matches its decor on all...
