I have never had such a lovely welcome into a pub, the food (steak) was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed the beverages, my dad was so chuffed to find stout on draft. It added to a really good visit.

Really nice roasts. Pork belly the best by family ‘vote’. Friendly staff. Cracking playlist. Mostly Aretha Franklin. Good views over the harbour even when it’s lashing down.

Used to be my local when I lived in Falmouth. Absolutely loved the place. Amazing views of the harbour downstairs and the food was always great. One of my favourite pubs in Cornwall for sure.
