Veggie lasagne clearly frozen as pasta was so soft it disintegrated in my mouth and a severe lack of vegetables. More like wallpaper paste. Havent ate in here since and wouldnt waste my money or time. Staff were very polite and apologetic but better to visit The Basset Arms 2 mins walk away.

I arranged for a quiet evening out with my partner after months of not getting the chance for time together. We thought the Waterfront would be ideal but sadly, when we walked in we were completely ignored, the landlord even taking the trouble to walk past us at the bar to serve a local. When we finally got our drinks... More

This place over the years has had its ups and downs. I frequently visited this place a few years ago, as it's located in one of most favourite places of Cornwall. Which is where I now live. But the place lost it is appeal though a decline in quality and service. However I heard that the place had new management... More

We occasionally frequented this pub when the previous management was in charge. Found some staff very loud and rude but she didn't last long. Food was okay when it arrived however on two occasions, the landlady forgot to put our order through. We were the only ones eating!! Delighted to speak to the new manager about his plans for the...

A fantastic night at the Waterfront last night. It was like the good old days. Great staff, great company and great fun. Just been over for a Sunday roast and that was superb too. Well done guys.

5 of us came for lunch and had really good food. Pubs need to tick certain boxes for me, good food, dog friendly, friendly staff and good ales. The Waterfront ticks all of them. It's recently under new management and I have to say the improvements are noticeable. I would recommend anyone to give this a go and if you've... More
