Went with a chef friend who said, verbatim, " best meal plan ve had in Cornwall for years". They were friendly, attentive, good food, and good value. I can only say we we're fully content without a single issue. Please enjoy.

Wonderful food! The fish and chips was absolutely perfect - nice, crisp batter and beautifully done chips. The 'mushy peas' were stunning, and that's coming from someone who doesn't like mushy peas! My mum had the shrimp tagliatelle off the starter menu for her main...More
