We visited the pub several times during our visit. Staff and customers very friendly towards tourists. It has a great atmosphere. We ate in the upstairs dining room, which offered a great choice of food and the service was excellent 😊

This was the only pub in Port issac so it's quite expensive for food. We did drink here for the 4 nights we were staying and its a great atmosphere. Food was ok but had better elsewhere in Port issac.

Excellent fish and chips in a very light batter. It was served with mashed garden peas, rather than traditional mushy peas, but they were tasty nevertheless. We sat upstairs looking out over the harbour which was a peaceful part of the busy pub.

Sorry we do not have children . I didn't notice any there when I went Or were they just sooooo well behaved that they went un-noticed? The easy option would be to call and ask.

The pay and display car park is at the very top of the hill, it's a ten minute very steep walk, there's no other option. The menu isn't large, unfortunately didn't note the veggie options but I'm sure there would be an... More
