This is a very friendly pub that does excellent value tasty pub food. Just come back from a week's holiday in North Cornwall and had a couple of meals here. On our second visit all the tables were taken so a couple of local folk gave up their table so we could have a meal! No hesitation in recommending this... More

We were looking for a dog friendly pub, and this came recommended. The lovely staff thoughtfully gave us a table in a quiet area, and made us very welcome. The menu is quite extensive for such a small place...we shared spring rolls as a starter, which were delicious, and just enough. I had a fish main course, which came with... More

Took the wife for a date night and couldn't have chosen a more friendly and honest pub to eat in. Ribs and the Beer Battered Fish are highly recommended - but the highlights were the homemade desserts. Often it can be the desserts that let down a pub meal but at the Bettle and Chisel you are spoiled for choice... More

Very friendly staff, good selection on the menu including some that were diet friendly (rather than standard pub chips with everything). Very tasty and good size portions. Good selection of ales too.

Lovely, friendly, cosy pub with free camping! Wish we had camped here but may have drunk too much of the Rattler cyder. (dangerous!) Food very good too. Will visit again if passing through.

Fantastic pub with the friendliest staff ever, we were able to take the dog in with us and the food was amazing. Took advantage of the free camping out the back, but be warned it's very tight up the drive into the car park, will def visit again if in the area

Charming old pub with the most friendly enthusiastic barmaid/waitress you'll ever meet. Dog friendly, they even have treats for them. Really nice, tasty, filling pub grub. Starter of crab cakes was tasty with fresh salad and chilli dip. Delicious Steak and Ale pie with lovely fresh vegetables and baby potatoes (so much nicer than the usual chips). Will definitely visit... More
