Wow! What a gem! Had an overnight stay and have already booked to go back. Phil and Karen made us feel really welcome. There are cosy open fires in the public areas where you can enjoy home cooked food,including locally caught fresh fish, yum, the sauce with the pork ribs was amazing. Our room had views of Penzance harbour and... More

I must admit by the looks of it , I would never have stayed there if I'd seen it from outside as in definite need of a lot of attention. However I arrived very late and the lady was so nice and left the key for me and the guest room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm and right opposite... More

We needed somewhere to stay for a couple nights either side of a visit to Scilly. The room was perfect, it was clean, quiet, convenient and comfortable. I would recommend for anyone to stay here if in need of a comfortable and suitable B&B.

Trink NOT Tring! Something of a strange ambience in the bar but this was largely down to the pub closing down the following Sunday, I'm sure. No food available despite being told by email food was available and I even sent an email requesting a table booking. Website didn't work either, but I think these again could be related to... More

Just spent a fantastic evening at the Dock. This establishment has everything you think of when you think "Old English pub" - wooden floors, plenty of cask-conditioned ales, good food, cozy decor. BUT it's all authentic, and popular with locals. Only a few tourists there (that may not be true in the height of the season). We literally sat next... More

Saw the reviews on TA and booked a stay at The Dock Inn, how people give this place rave reviews is beyond me.We were given room 1 and were shocked that we were paying £70 per night for such a sub standard room. Wallpaper was peeling of the wall, the door handle on the bathroom door was hanging off, the... More

We had a sunday lunch here 20th march after reading reviews and we were not disappointed, sarah who works the bar and takes the food orders was lovely, she was friendly without going over the top so well done to her. The food was beautiful, we had the roast beef, but you could have pork too. Everything about the meal... More

I visit here very often, it has a great atmosphere with some lovely locals. The food is very good and they supply the best cider around, Polgoon!! The bar staff are really friendly, definitely worth popping in for a pint!
