Came here for pre-wedding drinks and a simple bite to eat. Good local draught beer and food standard is high. Staff are excellent, so quick to serve, best in Newquay I reckon. Ideal for a chat and meeting up. On this night there was a really good singer. Great night :)

For dinner I had the seafood chowder, which is served with toasted bread and is just fantastic. Salads are good, too, as well as the fish and chips. You order and pay for your... More
