We were told this pub had good food, but it was very disappointing. The Mediterranean Board included pickled onions, not sure which part of the Med these were from. The sundried tomatoes were chewy. More disappointing was my burger. I realise it did not claim...More

Very characterful with lovely outdoor areas too. Food was lovely and service great! We had dinner as a couple with our two dogs and came back the next day with friends & family for a superb Sunday lunch! Thanks to the team!

Another of our favourite places to eat when we’re in Cornwall. Always a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. A good sign is that it’s full of locals too. We had a vegetarian board and the seafood chowder. Both were delicious and large portions. Nice to see...More
