We regularly drop into the Pier House for a drink and a snack when down in this part of the world. The bar is usually a lively place with other tourists and locals dropping in. On this last visit it was deserted. Prices had gone up noticeably since our previous visit perhaps this is a clue.

Visited recently and was made to feel very welcome straight away. Meal was excellent, steak was cooked to my liking, and the portions were just right. Good selection of local ales too

We've been coming here for years and always enjoyed an excellent meal with great service. And excellent value too. The fish dishes are excellent - fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. I'd recommend you book for the restaurant - it's very popular even out of season. The kitchen is shared with the bistro, where there is a different selection of dishes.... More

Good pub grub and very reasonable prices. We had ham, egg and chips and fish and chips. Both meals were a good size, served quickly and tastes great

we visited the bistro at 2.40pm thinking we'd get a quick late lunch as the place was empty. .......we had to wait 35 minutes for a bowl of soup, kids pasta and squid & salad!!! we wouldn't revisit this bistro based on this experience as it's over priced for what you get. the staff were very helpful and friendly though.

Visited here twice. Once for a drink sat outside on the terrace during the day looking out over the picturesque harbour and once for a meal in the evening. Good selection of food at reasonable prices. Friendly staff, nice relaxed atmosphere, comfortable place.

Called in for lunch with friends during our stay in Cornwall. Did not book in advance, but the staff were friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was relaxed with views across the harbour and we settled down for lunch and a catch-up with friends. The menu offered a good selection and the portions were good sized. After a leisurely meal and... More

Visited today for a cream tea. Although we were surprised that a cream tea only included 1 scone, when they arrived we realised the size of the scones were very large! One scone was definitely enough and we were provided with generous amounts of jam and cream - the scones were warm, lovely and had a sprinkle of icing sugar!... More
