We had lovely food in this place, with massive portions, as seems to be the norm in this area. Dan the owner was very friendly and welcoming. We will be back again in September. Keep up the good work.

Tucked away behind the harbour of the beautiful Polperro, The Three Pilchards is a wonderful way to end the day. The staff are young, welcoming and enthusiastic. There are several local ales to sample, and the food is outstanding. The crab garlic bread with cheese...More
