This is our second visit in a week and both times the food has been fresh and full of flavour. Portions are huge. Cant believe this place is not... More

We ate here and the food was good but the menu is very basic, we had hoped for something special but all the restaurants in this area are fairly basic. That's the nature of the business.

We had lovely stay in this hotel for three nights. The staff were very friendly and the food we had cooked by Ben was excellent one of the best steaks we have had. Lucy the part time manager was more than helpful and very friendly. And Vicky lots of fun. The room was very comfortable and clean nice furnishings and... More

First trip to Port Isaac for a number of years, called in the Slipway for lunch as we remembered it from pleasing previous visits, what a disaster, full outside so asked if we could take dogs inside, "only in the top bar ---grunted the lady as she was chatting importantly to another member of staff!--we sat down with a menu...

This is an old hotel with small rooms, various levels and a large number of stairs. The only parking available is almost a mile away, at the top of the village. All of which is fine as long as you are expecting it. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The food is excellent, with a steak night on Tuesdays... More

Nice location, under a big canopy which kept the wind at bay. Pint of Sharps Pilsner and a Latte Sat outside and had a break. Didn't eat but a nearby table had mussels and a glass of wine for £10

We had a meal here of traditional fish and chips and also a salad which we had never tasted before of humus salad with a variety of olives. The food was very good and loved the fact you could sit outside under a canopy with our trusted dog.

We have been here before and I don't remember it being so expensive. This is our 3rd trip to the Port. We were very hungry and as I am diabetic needed to eat. There is a limit to eating outside with your dog in port and we decided to use The Slipway as it is under cover from the wind.... More
