Walked from our site at Perran sands down a long windy lane (a long narrow road) and found this amazing character pub opposite an idyllic campsite. Shame we were a day early for the beer & pie festival, However had a great experience. Lovely Friendly staff and great food. We had lamb, chickpea & chiritzo pies with peas in a... More

We booked early to get a table here for 10, the food was outstanding, the value was incredible and the service was first rate, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and as this isn't by any means our first trip I'm sure we will be back again soon!

Stopped by tonight at a moments notice and asked if they could fit us in .The staff were very accommodating and could fit us in as they had a two hour slot on a table , in between diners. The place was filling up quick which is always a great sign of a good place to eat. We had amazing... More

We both had fish pie with fresh vegetables. Very nice and filling, good value. Only comment, in my opinion, the vegetables were a bit under done for my liking ..... I know it's the recommended way of eating veg to retain all the "goodness" but how I prefer veg, so didn't want to complain. Friendly owners and staff.

We went as a group of 11 people to celebrate a birthday. We chose to eat in the bar as it is dog friendly. The food was really good, the service good and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a great outside terrace with great views across the farmland, dunes and to the sea. It is reasonably priced... More

The staff were friendly and quick to take our order the food did take quite some time to come but the waitress did apologise and we could see it was very very busy. However the food more than made up for... More

Family had an overall pleasant dinner but pate special was not and the whole plaice special seemed below minimum capture size, waiter cheerfully told me the plaice was very small so added some prawns...... I should have rejected it.... Other meals looked good.

We booked a table at the smugglers' den and were told it would be number 10. When we arrived, the waitress realised number 10 was occupied so put us on a different table. It was very busy, and service was slow but when the food came out, it was hot and tasty. When it came to pudding, my dad found... More

We came here as a group of 6 & 1 toddler for lunch. It was a sunny day so we sat outside. The food was excellent & it all arrived at the same time. The atmosphere was relaxed & we could have just sat there all day. The staff were friendly & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. Perhaps... More

Your timing to visit was perfect! The decking and new patio with a refreshed beer garden and play area is next to none in fine weather! Don't be put off in not so good weather however, as inside has its own cosy charm. More
