Went with my wife. I was boring and went for fillet steak. It was cooked to perfection. We also went for the Asian, me a starter, my wife starter and main. All I will say is this establishment can hold its head up with the best of them anywhere in the country. Well done and we will be back soon... More

Had a lovely Valentines meal here, overall the experience was very good, my only suggestion would be that with the muscles I would have loved to have a couple of chuncks of bread rather than chips. Small point, I know, but needed something to mop up the lovely sauce

Put his beer up 50p a pint. This is Cornwall not Paris. No wonder Cornwall is I recession. £4.60 a pint is more than Mayfair.

We booked a table for five in advance having been here several times over the years. It was quiet between Christmas & New Year. The first thing I noticed was that the "Specials" board was gone and the dining room was cold. We discovered that it had changed hands in the past year and the French waiter was no more.... More

We went there for New Year's Day lunch with my sister and brother in law. We have been there many times before. The food was very good and staff were very welcoming. Unfortunately we felt very cold. Please put the heating on!!!!!!!

Service and food was excellent, we thought the staff were really friendly and helpful. We hadn't booked and had no problem getting a table for lunch on New Years Eve. Crab linguini & fish and chips were ordered and service was quick - food excellent both in taste and presentation. Would recommend and will definitely go again when next in... More

I visited as a group of four and we all left disappointed. We were looking forward to trying the Coldstreamer after not having been for numerous years. Starters were good but from there unfortunately everything was terrible. To begin, service throughout was well below par- well meaning but poorly trained. No apologies after mistakes and we were left without cutlery... More

Having been a couple of times before, my dad booked a table for us for a special meal over the Christmas period, and to make sure we got a table, booked it a week in advance of when we wanted to go. When we turned up, the barman said he remembered taking the phone call and reservation, but had forgotten... More

Took family there tonight for quick meal. Lovely pub, good location, enough parking spaces outside. Pub itself is beautiful inside with some authentic features. You need to book although we didn't find it busy and wonder why we had to book. Limited menu options but food that was served ( we had burger, mash and linguini) was very good. Great... More
