The restaurant has been taken over by a new Chef and now being called Guinevere's at Ye Olde Malthouse.

An excellent restaurant, good choice and ample portion sizes. Can be busy during high season so may have to wait for a table

Can recommend this boozer. The owner is a top bloke (apart from the fact he's from Birmingham). We love it. We spend more time in here than at home. Very friendly place.

We called in as we didn't like the other pubs in the area as they were too touristy, and we're glad we did. The hosts were very friendly and made us feel at home. We also weren't sure how many of us would be eating at the pub, and kept changing the number of prospective diners, but the staff coped... More

We were staying on holiday in nearby Boscastle and decided to try somewhere different. Oh my goodness! We were not disappointed. The food was gorgeous and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The pub/restaurant is really quaint and very attractive too. Definitely a place to return to next time we are down this way.

We arrived very early, before opening time an were the only people there. We got a lovely welcome from the owner/proprietor. We loved the atmosphere in the place and the childen were thrilled to see the musical instruments, including a Double Bass, left out from the night before. We were sorry not to be staying longer as we would have... More
