Went here for my sister's birthday meal. Food was really good proper pub food. Locals and landlady and landlord couldn't have made us more welcome. A proper country pub. It made our night brilliant atmosphere and loved the jukebox.

Stayed again and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, food and beer! Comfortable room and great breakfast . Would recommend to both business travelers and holiday makers. Go on steak night for a good deal on two steaks.

Lovely place to stay. I booked one night via Expedia. Based on the reviews. Tip cheaper if you book direct. However, as this was a birthday treat for my husband, the difference in price was secondary. The pub was comfortable and welcoming. We booked a table for a meal. In the meanwhile we went out to see the area that...

Popped into this little gem on the way back from a weekend away in Newquay and received an excellent plate of food served by excellent people. Paul, Hayley and the staff were very welcoming and friendly! Would highly recommend and will be back on my next visit to the west!

Stayed here for one night for a family wedding locally. Owners kindly let us check in early so we didn't have to come down the night before. Everything very clean and bed very comfy. Excellent breakfast!!
