Wow this place has improved. Spotlessly clean, great company and food 👍 You can't beat a northerner to sort out a pub. Well run super clean pub and restaurant

Stopped in here for a pint as it was raining, but ended up staying for lunch. Seems recently renovated, and by looking at other reviews this was because of flooding. Hope it's okay after recent reports of more flooding. Anyway, back to the review. I...More

Polperro is a lovely place to visit. The Noughts and Crosses Inn has a warm friendly atmosphere and the staff are warm and welcoming. I can highly recommended the Noughts and Crosses Inn as a place to visit if you are going to Polperro. :)

Gutted they got this just right and apparently it's flooded so it's closed... Fresh food, clean, modern and good service ... Great shame. Hopefully they'll reopen and sort something out to stop it flooding again...
