“Best pub food in Cornwall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2011

My husband and i spent 5 weeks in Cornwall visiting many different areas. We planned a walk for each day and looked forward to a lovely pub lunch at the end of each one.
The Mullion area coastline did not disappoint and we spent two days exploring the area from our rented base.
We ate in the Old Inn the first lunchtime as it was opposite the village parking we had begun our walk from.
We were given a pleasant welcome by the friendly young man beind the bar and found a table by the window in the maze of rooms.
The menu was varied but not too lengthy. My husband chose the Special of the day 'Monkfish with samphire on mash' and i the cheese ploughmans.
The Monkfish was perfectly cooked with a lovely sauce that we couldn't quite identify the lovely taste of.
We returned the next day and chose the Chicken from the menu if i remember correctly and a Steak. Both were cooked to perfection ( and we are both foodies and a bit critical).
It was such a delight to dine in a pub and receive both excellent service and food. Being in Cornwall for 5 weeks and eating out daily we feel qualified to make these remarks.
When we asked the bar staff to pass on our compliments to the chef, the pleasant young lady (day 2) told us that he had recently joined the team and they felt lucky to have secured him.
We second that! Well done to all at the Old Inn. We hope to return one day.

The pub is now under new management since Septemer 2010 and the new people have made some great improvements. We ha been a little worried about some of the earlier negative reviews but the new management has made this a really nice place to visit. We only stayed for one night but were treated really well. The room was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The food was excellent (very large helpings of home cooked fare). The staff were attentiv and helpful. The pub is well located in the middle of the pleasant village of Mullion and has easy access to some of Cornwall's and the Lizard's best coastal areas.

We booked this on the internet on the offer stay 2 nights with 3rd night free. We arrived on the Friday and had booked for three nights. When we arrived we went to reception and was greeted by a very nice young gentleman, he took our names and then showed us to our rooms.

The roooms were clean but the plaster was falling from the roof in two if the rooms. The website needs to be updated as it states that the rooms are newly refurbished.

On the second night the lock was broken on the door and we could not enter the room. There was no access to reception and the fire doors were chained. There was no phone in the other room to call, so we had to share the room with another couple. When we finally got back into the room the next morning the hot water ran out while we were having showers. This was brought to the attention of the owner who doubted the validity of our statement, we asked him to come up and check but he never came to the room.
On the basis of all this we decided to check out of the accomodation a day early. The lady that was checking us out treated us very badly and made alot of sarcastic comments.
I really think the staff we meet on the Friday night were lovely, but the managment (owner) of this establishment need to improve there social skills.
