We went here for dinner during a short visit to Looe and we really enjoyed it. The food was lovely especially my local crab salad which was delicious. The service was great and the building is really interesting having been built in the 1600's so...More

We had the Roast beef. Portion was a good size, lots of veg and extra gravy. Good service. Beef was ok. Fairly good roast for a pub

A perfect example of the menu looking appetising but the reality being disappointing. Food was over cooked and on some dishes burnt. Very bland tasting. Over priced for the quality. Wetherspoon's is better than this. Very disappointing, avoid at all costs.

Very expensive for what equates to Wetherspoon's quality. Everything either frozen, processed or warmed up in an oven/microwave. Nothing fresh. Disappointing, not value for money and will NOT be going again. Such a shame and a waste of a lovely building.

We had a nice meal, the food was great and hot. The staff was both very friendly and helpful, offering me a sample taster of local Cornish ale. I would be happy to go back again

We visited here yesterday for a Sunday roast. Everything was so well presented - good sized portions! We liked the presentation of the vegetables - arriving in a separate dish to the meat - allowing us to decide how much we wanted. All in all,...More
