Lovely Cornish pub, comfortable. Friendly staff, helpful, but leave you in peace. Food great. We had fish and chips, gammon, moussaka with lovely side salad, cheesy garlic bread, kids spaghetti Bolognese. All excellent. Will definitely return.

Booked at short notice, not knowing the area. Landlord & landlady were really friendly & food was excellent - reasonably priced & portion size was good. In fact no room for desert ;-) Definitely recommend.

Hi there is no onsite parking but you are able to park a very short distance away from the pub up the hill beside it. Depending on how many cars are there you are looking at no longer then a 3 minute walk.
