This is a real Cornish locals pub normally having four real ales plus a good range of lagers and ciders. The food is of a very high standard as is the welcome. The locals are friendly and will make you feel at home. Booking a table is always a good idea as this is a very popular eating place.

We were house-hunting in the area and, having found a house we really liked, decided we'd try out the local pub. We just wanted a snack at lunchtime, as we were eating out in the evening.

We went on a Sunday night, 4 of us and we were welcomed in by the locals. We ordered our food from an amazing menu. I had crab bake to start and then Brie and red onion Wellington the servings were generous sizes but delicious so I had to finish it! Would definitely go back

Thank 1980hm

This is a lovely old pub restaurant, serving delicious food. We have eaten there twice & each time has been a wonderful experience. The food is fresh & the vegetables in season. Delicious. We will certainly be going again.
