We called in here for our last meal in Looe before driving back to Cambridgeshire after taking my elderly father for a holiday here. The Sunday lunch we had was scrumptious! The portion sizes were big and the various roast meats cooked to perfection. I have to admit that they were every bit as good as my own home-cooked roasts,... More

While on holiday we had the misfortune of eating here - - never again. The food took ages to come to the table hen we found it to be very low grade and cheap food served by the most miserable of waitresses who also came across as rude even the children commented on this

Feeling hungry decided to walk along to see if anywhere was open, we found Archies, on entering I was pleasantly surprised, we were greeted by such a lovely, charming lady. I liked her immediately along with the ambience and interior of Archies. So welcoming , with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Although... More

Went here one afternoon straight from the beach with my daughter. After eating mediocre food in over priced restaurants near by we were a bit dubious about eating in central Looe again. How wrong we were. We were met with a warm welcome from the waitress and the lady behind the bar. Both myself and my daughter ordered drinks and... More

Nice food served by friendly ladies. The lasagne was gorgeous with fresh salad and lovely, crusty garlic bread. My daughter had pizza which was equally as nice. Accompanied by a bottle of red wine the bill was just short of £50 so pretty good value too.

The beef was slices that you get in a packet at a supermarket, not cut from a roasted joint as the owner claimed. Chewey and unpleasant to the taste, no wonder they give a pot of mustard to go with it. Horseradish with beef, for goodness sake!!!!

In the town a nice little restaurant with friendly staff. The chips were cooked almost perfectly crispy and fluffy on the inside. The battered cod tasted very fresh. The homemade coleslaw was very good and creamy. A great meal.

Called for a meal here, Cottage pie, always a safe bet. No bad. Wait was far far too long. Wife ordered a sweet, Lemon tart and clotted cream. After a wait of about 20 minutes we asked the waitress how long the sweet would be. Her reply was " I have asked the chef twice now and dare not ask... More
