We often travel from London to Cornwall and this is the ideal place to stop eat and refresh. The pub is clean and staff are friendly, the menu has a good mixture of tasty food for all and reasonable prices. Good parking facilities and you can stretch your legs I recommend

I joined friends for a lunchtime meal. We were greeted warmly by the staff including my friend's two dogs. There was no rush to order, we enjoyed a drink, ordered food and were served with three delicious meals. The atmosphere and decor were very inviting.
