Had dinner here. Would recommend the sea-food platter. Ample, varied portions. Pub also has a good range of real ales, including the always satisfying Harvey's. Pub itself appears a bit neglected but on the other hand, friendly relaxed atmosphere more than makes up for that...More

An attractive building in the middle of the Common, combining good bar and restaurant and lots of attractive outside tables, located over an old coal mine and adjacent to some of the town's notable rock formations.

Hi Andrew J, Thank you for leaving us a review, we are glad that you enjoy visiting us - as far as we know however we are located on an old sandstone quarry, not a coal mine! Best Wishes, Edgcumbe Team

Stayed here after a lovely day at Hever and really pleased with our choice. The hotel has only just opened its bedrooms and everywhere has been nicely done- quirky, cosy and clean. Our bedroom was lovely, the bed was super comfy with crisp white bed...More

Booked a table for 5 for lunch and was not disappointed. My steak burger was excellent and not let down by any of the individual components and the chips were absolutely perfect. Two of my companions had the steaks which once again were cooked exactly...More
