Visited this local on our first night in Falmouth. Great Muscles in miso, cider and chilli served with the best French fries I have had in a long time. Slightly salty but fantastic with a beer or Cider. A little pricey but well worth it....More

Having just moved into the area we are pleased to have this pub 500 meters away. Fantastic view and equally great food. Not overpriced given the location. Looking forward to spending lots of evenings enjoying the vista.

I have never had such a lovely welcome into a pub, the food (steak) was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed the beverages, my dad was so chuffed to find stout on draft. It added to a really good visit.
