Seven of us had Luch here yesterday 26/9/16. We all found it excellent value for money. The food was cooked well & served efficiently. I have no problem in recommending this pub for food it you are in the area.

I had a superb cauliflower cheese served with he optional bacon and mushrooms and red hot garlic bread. I washed it down with well kept St. Austell Tribute. Service was pleasant and efficient....

In my last review I gave it a one star rating,,,, this was a mistake and was definitely meant to be five stars so sorry if you were confused. I stayed with 5 colleagues and all had good reports of their rooms and stay.

This one had good reviews and the menu looked good too. We found it easily, and were welcomed when we arrived and shown our room. We were asked if we wanted a drink, as the...
