Ate here two nights while in Newquay and both times the meals were excellent and very good value at only 10-12 pounds. The pork belly was perfect, as was the baked salmon (daily special). Service was friendly and efficient.

We visited this restaurant/pub many times during our stay. The food (especially the carvery) was excellent, hot and the beef was delicious. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Would suggest that you pre-book as it can be very busy especially Sunday lunch.
