We called in here on our way back up from Lizard Point. Only a quick pint but it was good beer and good service. I noticed a Sunday dinner was available unfortunately we didn't have the time to try it out. Hopefully there will be a next time...........

Popped in for a drink and a snack after visiting the area. The barman was really nice and friendly. I asked for a cheese and onion sandwich which when arrived came with chips and a side salad. This was totally enjoyed sat by and open fire in a lovely old welcoming pub

Really friendly staff, the food and beverages were lovely. I really enjoyed the locally made beverages. We were quite a large group so we booked in advance and we were placed in a private room, which was great. They also had games to play.

My first visit to a Cornish pub and no disappointment. Brilliant atmosphere made better by locals having a sing song. All staff were friendly and helpful. Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there but from what I saw it looked good. Extensive choice of drinks especially rum over a dozen, plenty of beers/lager/cider to choose from. Will... More

Visited on a windy rainy day in October, the pub was full, people and dogs very buzzy atmosphere. We wanted to eat and we were taken to the resteraunt area, shown to our seats and warned about the resident ghost. Nice food, warm welcome and just what we wanted.

I came here from the YHA hostel just down the road. The hostel is self catering so I needed to find somewhere to eat. This was the first pub I came to and it was quite lively with regulars.
