Great location. Seemed to offer good quality so chose fishfinger sandwich . Be advised. Do not choose this. Grey tasteless fishfingers. All there was to taste was tartar sauce. Quite horrible! Oh and coffee was warm rather than hot. Tasted ok thoughMore

good food and pleasant surroundings, right by harbour. Plenty to see. Nice town but very busy in July on sunny day. Parking is problematic.

A real gem. On the harbour at Porthleven. Very friendly and helpful staff. The food was generously portioned and tasty. I had the crab salad and it was delicious. Salad fresh and full of different things. Definitely recommend a visit.
