We arrived here on a Sunday afternoon during .a short holiday in Somerset. There were 4 of us - one couple were visiting from Canada so were really looking forward a traditional cream tea. They were so disappointed. Firstly our order was lost and we only realised this when a couple who arrived later than had their tea before us.... More

Had a few drinks in the beer garden. Fantastic location and perfect place to chill. Barman was friendly and hard-working.

We sat outside in their lovely garden and had a beer or two. They had a couple of singers playing a few tunes and it was very chilled. We drank a few of the real ales and they were very good. There only appeared to be two people on duty and it was a bit chaotic. Still a good place... More

Visit for a few beers and to decide whether to eat at the Rock House during several days away. Some good St Austell beers on tap so we enjoyed a very sunny afternoon in the garden, which is unrivalled in the area. The barman seemed to be the only person pouring, run off his feet due to the good weather... More

Visited with my sister on a day trip after a long journey from Plymouth we stopped to have a latte after 10 minutes we were informed that the coffee machine wasn't hot enough so settled for a filter coffee instead. Because of the lovely weather we sat in the beautiful garden and enjoyed the view and tranquil surroundings. I am... More

We stopped here as they had a nice garden area, but that was about all that was nice. Service was terrible and slow. We decided to have afternoon tea. The scones came out of a plastic bag and were put in the microwave. Cream and jam were both pre portioned. The scones (if you can call them that) tasted more... More

Did not stay here-thank goodness. Just had a meal in the restaurant. The waiter was (only way to describe him)Basil Fawlty. You could see through the door to the kitchen and was totally surprised to see the chef drinking alcohol whilst cooking. The evening was a total shambles. Please train your staff the correct way to greet, serve and know... More
