Always a good place to go for a bite or something a little more elaborate. They also have a very decent wine list. I have not been disappointed yet! The staff is very pleasant and helpful as well.

Booked a table online (which is handy) for a quick lunch with a friend. The food was really tasty, well presented and pretty good value considering the quality. The service was good and friendly although they were a little short staffed so we had to wait a little longer than you'd ideally want to get orders taken etc but this... More

There was originally supposed to be more of us but due to certain circumstances of a couple had to pull out. Our friend the organiser phoned several times during the day not getting an answer and having to leave a voicemail message.... More

Visited for a Christmas party. Unfortunately two people cancelled on the day. Without warning we were charged for the extra plates. We were told they were already cooked, but we saw the plates had gone to other tables. Ended up being given a piece of raw steak and a chocolate torte in a box to take home. Attitude of the... More

Great restaurant, the food was amazing. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we had a really good night. The waitresses were so friendly and really made the night for us, they offered us advice with the menu when the owner failed to tell us that some things were not available. The management really let the evening down. They were very rude... More

Myself and my work colleagues ( 22 of us) decided to have our Christmas party at the Railway, We booked straight away due to a table being available at the time we wanted to eat. We did the pre ordering and paid our deposit which is totally normal those days in restaurants.? On arrival, we were pleasantly surprised, the music... More

I believe this place is making a profit by overcharging its customers and hoping they don't realise. A group of 13 friends and I decided to book here for our Christmas meal this year. Unfortunately a couple them had to drop out on the day due to unforeseen circumstances, we phoned 3 times to try to let them know but... More

We've been driving down to Penzance from London for over 20 years and a few years back we found this perfect lunch stop at the halfway point that ticks all the boxes. Easy access off the A30; interesting and varied menu; excellent, well-presented, home cooked food; nice atmosphere and very friendly service. I think this was our fourth visit here... More

We visited early evening on a Friday night for a meal for two. We haven't visited this place very often in the past but think our minds have been changed after the great service and food that we received. My husband had the sirloin steak and very impressed with the quality of the steak and flavour of the meal, I... More
