Very cosy in here. Very pleasant happy atmosphere. Regular bar food was nice but tad pricey. Friendly staff. Not long to wait for food. However the live music in the next bar was too loud and disturbed our conversation. Also the lavatories reeked, but they...More

Popped there tonight with my kids, girlfriend and dog, very local atmosphere, friendly welcome by all the staff, food was cooked well and tasted good, shame it’s not walking distance from our cottage or we’d be in there for a few pints!

Booked here for a Friday night, good job because the place is very popular. 4 of is had food and drinks and were very happy when we'd finished. Live music was also great. We'll be back.

The best evening meal we had in Boscastle during our week's holiday. Varied menu, great prices, a helpful response to dietary requirements (one teen has a nut allergy, the other is lactose intolerant). Generous portions, fresh flavours and well priced.

A rarity in Cornwall, a pub with great character. Saw musician James Dixon here tonight. He was stunning.

We had dinner in this pub and with a fabolous ale Cornish Tribute we appreciated Fish Pie, the best we tasted in Corwall, and Hungarian Goulash with rice. At the end a local ice cream completed our experience. A young singer played the most famous...More

Loved our two evening meals here. Definitely need to book, especially on the nights they have entertainment. It’s like visiting old friends, the staff are brilliant. Great menu and service and the food is wonderful and plentiful. I wouldn’t go anywhere else in Boscastle. This...More

We arrived quite late for lunch but that was not a problem Lots of options for gluten free, only one problem - could not finish it as too much!

We used this pub as our local while staying in Boscastle and the staff and locals were without exception welcoming and friendly. We ate here twice with no complaints and found the prices to be average for a holiday location.
