Spent an evening watching Plymouth Argyle sadly being beaten by Liverpool. Was a pleasant experience due to nice tasty burgers, and served by an incredibly pleasant, cheerful and efficient young lady who didn't drop her smile once despite being really busy and, seemingly, on her own behind the bar. She's a bit of a gem for this pub!

+ Had a steak here, perfectly cooked. Seriously amazing food. Apparently new chef. Very kind waitress. Prices as expected. - sauces in sachets, low wobbly chairs. Overall - very good, would come back again and again.

Popped in here for a roast today. It was nice enough and good service. Surroundings and decor are a bit basic.

We called in after reading the reviews on here. We were after a Sunday dinner and got there a little early. The place doesn't open until 12 and we were turned away and told to wait outside until opening (we got there for 11.45). From the outside they place looks a little run down but inside it's nice and there... More

We nearly passed this pub by as it didn't look much from the outside. However as it was one of the only pubs in bude with sky sport, showing the football we gave it a try. What a pleasant surprise.... The inside of the pub was lovely, the staff were really friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. With... More

As a family, we ordered starters and main meals. We specifically asked if we could have the starters first then the main course. All the food arrived at the same time. When we pointed out that we wanted the main meal after the starters, the waitress said that there was nothing on the ticket that said that and put all... More

It was a windy&rainy day so we were seated inside which is less valuable experience than the outdoor terrace, as the interior setting is quite usual. However, the staff was very firendly, the food very good and the price reasonable. Much better... More

Just popped in for a quick drink on our way back to our B&B, very pleasant atmosphere, seemed busy with food. Husband said his pint was good (he has worked in the Pub trade for many years). Would visit again.
