Stopped at this pub for a quick snack. Very friendly but the beer wasn't good. Real ale should not be chilled. Interestingly I chose it because it had a caskmarque award. First time I've been disappointed in one of those. My wife ordered orange juice and soda but got orange squash. Had the soup. Took an age to arrive even... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy yourself at our establishment. Our cellar is a constant 10 degree and the real ales are stored in there so I am not sure why the temperature would very that much. I do wish you had pointed out that the orange drink was incorrect as this could of been corrected. I am also... More

Couldn't find a pub serving food around boscastle after 3pm on a Sunday so on the advice of TripAdvisor we ventured a bit further to the Bettle and chisel ....we were not disappointed. We had a warm friendly welcome in a local pub. We were starving so all was quiet when our food arrived ....the farmers pie was to die... More

Nothing fancy but nice local pub with good tasty food and lovely service. This is not foodie destination but provided great mosh after long drive. Good prices and beer as well.

We decided to stop at this pub as we were passing through Delabole as they were advertising 2 steaks for £20. We had four steaks which was served by a pleasant young man The steaks were ok but there were very small amounts of vegetables to go with it I am afraid we were not over enthusiastic about the meal

The member of staff was friendly but we have never paid so much for such a small portion of soup. We asked for another helping as the first was so small and the request was granted. The soup was tasty but the ceramic bowls were very thick and shallow compared with your average bowl. It was served with focaccia which... More

Sad to say we are not as impressed as eight months ago. The menu seems depleted and the food not as good as our last visit. Not the same proper pub grub as before. Skinny fries with steak, skinny fries with fish, no choice of chips, no specials board ,as I said a depleted menu. The beer, staff and atmosphere... More
