Heading to Cornwall and fortunate enough to find this Pub/B&B... stunning location. Enjoyed dinner in the pub, enormous serves of quality food. On arrival (we didn't have a booking) we were greeted by the most hospitable and charming lady by the name of "Kate" who could not do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble and all done with...

Two of us had dinner here tonight. One battered cod with chips and mushy peas, one baked potato with chilli con carne. The good news: portion sizes were great, and it arrived pretty quickly. The less good: The fish (was it REALLY cod? shaped like haddock...) was overcooked and the batter really quite greasy. Peas OK. Chips overcooked and dripping... More

We have done the Rail Ale Trail for years now and this is the first pub we have ever been who wouldn't stamp our sheet without drinking Ale! It literally is a choice of us spending lots of money in her pub with her stamping out sheep so we can get a free thief at the end of the crawl!... More

Everything was handled so well for our birthday meal I thought I'd review. All aspects of catering for 21 persons were handled extremely well. The food came out on time all together and piping hot. The food was excellent quality and seemed in general all home cooked and nothing straight from the freezer. Excellent portion sizes enough even for the... More

Was staying in the hotel and ate in the restaurant. The menu was ideal for me, good choices, reasonably priced. They even cater for slimming world members with a section of the menu dedicated to this, nice touch. The portions were huge and the service was friendly and efficient. All in all a great experience.

Unfortunately it was anything but worth the wait. I ordered a gammon steak with egg and pineapple( £1.00 extra for... More
