Stopped in for a quick drink on our last morning in Newquay. Best milkshake I've ever tasted, wish we'd gone in before our last day! Menu & food looked amazing

We stopped here on New Year's Eve (afternoon) for a bite to eat, most of the tables had reserved on them. Luckily one was not being used until 3.30 so the waitress said we could have one of the tables until then. Hubby had fish and chips and I had chicken and chips - well presented and tasty. We also...

This is a great pub and have been here many times over the past 5 years but the drinks are expensive. The food is great the beef nachos a favourite of ours, but as I say the drinks are dear especially when there is a weatherspoons across the road.

Went here on xmas eve as we were staying nearby for xmas. Lovely interior and really cosy, but to have to wait nearly 15 minutes for 2 coffees spoilt the first good impression. However, the barman was really sociable and no complaints about him! The ordering system seemed strange as the coffees were made by somebody else and not the... More

We only popped in for a quick drink, we had to wait while the young lady behind the bar had finished taking photos of a lady in crutches sat at the bar before we were acknowledged. After a visit to the ladies, the cubicle had vomit on the back of the seat and lid. So we beat a hasty retreat... More

We visit with family and friends. The staff are always helpful and friendly and the food is great, something for everyone. The central is also great for just a drink with friends or to sit down with the family. I always enjoy my visits I would recommend
