Food was very good when it eventually turned up but we had to wait ages. Friendly staff but should have told us it would be over an hours wait. So my advice would be check how long the wait is before ordering.

This was some of the best pub food I have eaten. The fish parcel, haddock cooked with onion and veg plus wine in a foil parcel was delicious. The landlord, is charming, amusing and French. Good beer too.

Proper old Cornish pub with wooden benches outside the front. Looks welcoming from outside. Mostly friendly staff but atmosphere spoilt by unfortunate loud music. Also at times seems empty. Heard good reports about food but not eaten there for some time.
