Had a meal with my wife last day of our short break in the Lizard. Food was very good and plentiful, service great and the pub was a typical old Cornish charmed place.

Popped in for lunch after visiting the seal sanctuary, gutted we'd not found it sooner! We went back for dinner the next night on our last evening. Great staff, super friendly, and delicious food. Would recommend and 100% return on another trip.

What a lovely experience. I first came here around 12 years ago as a teenager; having returned now with my own little boy and partner, it seemed a good place to try for dinner. So glad we did - lovely food, fresh and served promptly,...More

Located next to the popular National Seal Sanctuary in the picturesque village of Gweek near Helston. We are in the heart of "Poldark" country and are close to some of the beaches used in the filming of the new and old TV series. Church Cove and Gunwallow on The Lizard are a short distance away and these can be seen in some of the night-time ship wrecking scenes. We offer a wide selection of Cornish real ales including Sharps Doom Bar, Tribute, Bass and Betty Stogs along side another guest ales. The restaurant area has been decorated to give a warm and welcoming atmosphere and we offer a home cooked menu from the blackboards. Every week we serve traditional Sunday lunches which are proving extremely popular - booking is advisable.
