“Smaller portions - adult prices”
Review of Waterside Meadery

Waterside Meadery
Ranked #1 of 11 Nightlife in Penzance
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 May 2018

Been coming here for years, the small portions are suddenly gone very very small. Nowhere near worth the money. Terrible attitude from owners, when complaining. Feel sorry for staff.

We use to live in Cornwall over 30 years ago and visited the Meadery frequently. We try to come back every few years for a holiday and ALWAYS go to the Meadery. We are here for two weeks and have visited 4 times. So I think that tells you what we think. The chicken in the rough is absolutely gorgeous. Juicy chicken with a gorgeous tasty crispy skin. To top it off a carafe of blackberry mead - Heaven. The waitresses were really friendly and we didn’t feel rushed at all. My only sad comment is they use to play Clannad Music, but no longer do. Not their fault. The young folk these days probably don’t even know who Clannad are. I would highly recommend the Meadery to couples or families. What’s also nice is that it hadn’t changed after all these years. Well done to the family who run it. Please keep it the same and don’t change it.

Visited all the meaderies over the years but hadn't been to this one for a long time. Nice big table and absolutely lovely staff who were really nice. Unfortunately the food was very average. The Chicken in the Rough was great but the chips were dry and boring. Others had the Fish Fries which were good but again let down by the chips. Ordered a half chips half salad - the salad was also not good - it would be much better to have a salad bar where you could choose what you wanted. Instead it came on the plate and was very disappointing, couple of mushroom slices, beetrot slices and raw onion and peppers. We would come back again but on current form, would recommend the Redruth one more.

Fabulous food and large portions; my little boy loved the decor, thought he was on a real pirate ship! The staff were really friendly and helpful. I will definitely be coming back next time we are on holiday in Cornwall. A very good experience for the whole family!

Me and my family have recently met up at the meadery for tea. If you want to go for a light snack then I would recommend asking for a smaller dish as the regular portions are huge. Any large groups may be able to sit on a long table but some groups may have to sit on two tables with a small gap in between as all tables are stuck to the wall. All food comes within a reasonable time and drinks come fairly quickly.
