Staying nearby we booked a table for Sunday lunch. The place was busy so booking is advised I'd say. We had the beef, Yorkshire pudding etc and it was perfect. Very tasty, could not fault it. Dessert we chose the rhubarb pie with ginger with clotted cream, it was ok but probably wouldn't have it again, couldn't taste the ginger... More

We went here because i had heard good things about the pub and it didn't disappoint! myself and my family all went for the steaks which were tasty! only thing i would say is the waiters were a bit young and need abit more training as they forgot a few things! Overall really cosy inside and it has calming atmosphere!

The ribs were perfect, and the starters (breaded mushroom and duck pate were the best I've ever had. Definitely coming back.

Staying close by, we had driven past a couple of times and thought we'd try The New Inn for a family dinner one evening. We had a drink in the bar as we read the menu and then ordered, being called through to a restaurant table when the food was also ready. It was a relatively quite time; they had... More

We're very fond of the New Inn and make a point of returning at every opportunity. The welcome received, the quality of the food and variety of the, locally sourced, drinks are some of the reasons we visit ther New Inn when in the area. Will be happy to return next time we come back to Cornwall.

We visited for a midweek dinner and were very impressed by the friendly and polite service. The mains were very tasty and good size portions but we felt let down by the desserts which were not to the same standard. Overall a nice meal in a pleasant atmosphere.

We visited this pub whilst staying in the area, and were very impressed! The atmosphere was welcoming and cosy, with good ales and ciders on tap. The meals were huge portions and really tasty; we had the fish pie and the vegetarian lasagne (and can I just say what a fab veggie meal it was, a lot of thought had... More
