We visited The Slipway last year and returned as it was very good. The cream tea is really lovely and one not to be missed. The town, the views/scenery and the cream team made our day.

Reasonably priced and popular. The covered area was the place to be when it started raining. You can see Mrs Tishells chemist from the seating area and do some people watching whilst enjoying a beer.

Looks like a decent outside spot in Port Isaac, good for a drink, but food was well below average pub standard. If you do eat here go really basic! The Prawn cocktail was a watery, tasteless option! Plus the smell from the fish area!More

The food itself at the Slipway was quite good, but unfortunately we only got 5 of the 6 meals we had ordered. When we informed the waitress, she admitted she had failed to put the order through to the kitchen, but by the time it...More

Hello Alan C sorry a meal was missed off, these things are honest mistakes and infrequently happen. I'm to assume that all meals were eaten so why would we discount the meals. The card machine is always left in that screen, if you chose to...More
