We wandered in at lunchtime looking for a snack and coffee as a break from walking the coastal path. After a chat with the owner we ended up sitting in the garden, in the sunshine, with a cafetiere of freshly made coffee and a large slice each of delicious cheesecake - not what we had originally planned but most enjoyable nevertheless. It also turned out to be very good value for money!

We had perused the eating places in Lolworth and based on the sign saying Mussel Madness we went in.
Slightly chaotic in the bar, but once that resolved itself we found a table inside and ordered. The Chef took our order and delivered the mussels, they were wonderful. Tasty, perfectly cooked and delicious.
The chef noted we had mussel liquor left and bought us bread to mop it up., brilliant.

We weren’t staying in Bishops, but as far as the food is concerned. Definitely worth a visit.

Our daughter was getting married locally so we booked the entire hotel for the weekend. We hit the staff with everything - disabled child in a wheelchair; no dairy; vegetarian; celiac dining and a nonogenarian. The staff were excellent. Very friendly and accommodating. They devised and special evening meal for us and on the wedding day ferried food and refreshments up to my daughter's room. They worked their socks off to make the day and stay special. The road to the hotel is pedestrian only but they arranged for access for both the wedding car and the disabled persons vehicle to pick the guests up. The room's furniture was in some cases quirky and eclectic but so what the rooms were clean and comfortable.

I have to say, we didn't experience any of negative things in some of reviews here. Would we stay again? Absolutely. By the way charging for the car park is nothing to do with the hotel.

Cold, dismissive greeting (not welcome) by the single staff member, who appeared not to give a single fig about guests or good service. Weird “welcome” from the owner/host.
The bar was not at all stocked - hardly any soft drinks, no snacks, nothing on draft - neither the host, nor the staff member seemed to care! The shelves behind the bar were empty & thick dust, so this wasn’t a recent rush-and-sell-out!
Generally the place was scruffy & grubby.
Nice cats tho - purry & lap-warming!
