A lovely pub and delicious food. All 4 of us enjoyed the food and the vegi child was extremely happy with the vegetable back. We have been back each time we have been in Cornwall, so I'm sure we will be back again

We had a great meal here in a warm friendly atmosphere with friends. Another time we had drinks outside on the sunshine. Staff and locals very friendly and welcoming. A quirky local bar/restaurant which serves good food and ale.
