Really good service and food in an unusual setting. Not the cheapest menu around but we'll worth the extra pennies for a pleasant evening.

We came here whilst visiting a friend in Launceston. The staff were lovely and the food was great. This would be a place that I would highly recommend and would definitely come back again if we were in the area! 😀

Gourmet burgers and mouth-watering steaks are offered alongside tasty chicken dishes and world foods every Monday to Sunday from 5 to 10pm, with drinks served until 11.30Pm. Vegetarians and celiacs are well catered for and we are happy to meet other dietary requirements by arrangement. If you prefer to enjoy our delicious American menu at home then take away is also available. Our restaurant seats 40 while our bar hosts another 20. We proudly serve the best real ales and craft beers from the likes of Penpont Brewery and Firebrand Brewing Co, as well as offering a quality selection of wines and spirits. The venue is accessible for wheelchair and pushchair users via the rear entrance. Families with young children are made very welcome, particularly between 5 and 7pm, and we offer toys and crayons to keep them entertained. We encourage group bookings of up to 40 people and are always pleased to host dinners for local clubs, businesses and organisations as well as parties and celebrations. Parking in all of Launceston's Cornwall Council car parks is free after 4pm. The nearest are the Pannier Market and Cattle Market on Race Hill. Free WiFi is available for all customers.
