Tasted like potatoes were reheated. Also when it came to desert, there was no menu for it. Once we eventually ordered desert, ice cream wasn't available, and i wasnt even given the chance to pick something else. They assumed i liked cream! but strange enough the table behind had ice cream shortly after we had finished ours. I then complained... More

The staff are also very pleasant and friendly and hospitable. I would recommend this pub/carvery/restaurant over the other pubs in Newquay if you want a calm, well run place to... More

Been here a few years ago, was good then and is still great for evening dinner in the bar. Had a rump steak dinner, was perfect. Staff very friendly. Not a lot of parking, back car park was full at 5.45. Had to park on road.
