We went with friends who live locally to this great pub/inn. We had delicious smoked prawns with mayonnaise. Freshly baked Hake with cabbage mash and thinly sliced lamb's liver and mash. One of us had a haloumi burger which was very good. Affogato and creme brulee to finish. All the food was good, but our visit was made so entertaining...

We have eaten here a few times and would definitely go back - all our meals have been very tasty, especially the fish dishes. The service is friendly and there is a good atmosphere as it is also a pub. It is certainly above average and has a chef who maintains consistently high standards.

We made a last minute booking here as we couldn't face a long journey after arriving back from the Isles of Scilly. It proved to be an excellent choice and fantastic value for money. Over the years we have stayed in either a gastro-pub or a hotel near to Penzance, both of which are lovely but twice the price of...

My friend and I spent 5 nights recently. The accommodations here,all en-suite (there are three rooms, and we stayed in the center) are fitted with cable TV, bottled water, and water kettle for coffee/tea; thelarge bed is extremely comfortable, perfect for a good night's rest. There are views over a small central square in the village, which is very charming....

Stayed for one night & had dinner & breakfast both of which were excellent. The staff were great, helpful & amusing & the room was comfortable enough. The shower was very difficult to regulate & most of the time was far too hot, although someone came to have a go at showing us how to reset it, it was still...

We stayed in room 3 which was lovely and spacious with original sash windows to let in light and air. The decor was pleasant with a nice clean fresh feel and nice large towels. The bathroom was large with a large and powerful shower, the only odd thing about the bathroom was the clear window panes so you have to...

We had a perfect meal last week. The Coldstreamer really sees the sense of concentrating on fresh, well-matched, high-quality local ingredients, cooked superbly, and presented without "gastro" or "foodie" embellishments or fuss. The manager Derek Power was brilliant – helpful and pleasant, but never familiar. Wish we didn't live 350 miles away. Thank you chef, and thanks Derek. Keep up...

Starting with the positive, the menu, food and wine was excellent. We could not fault it at all. The chef is clearly imaginative and talented. However, we found that the rooms did not live up to the standard downstairs. The window in our room was clearly rotten, I did not feel that the carpet was clean and it all felt...
