Visited the Meadery last week as a big and local party of 16. I ordered a small prawn meal but was told quite late on they had no prawns so asked to swap it for scampi! 2 of the party's meals were served about 10 mins later without any explanation or apology.. I then went to pay for my meal... More

Me and the family have visited newlyn meadery every Christmas Eve since I was a child. Great atmosphere and by far the best meadery in the area! Food is yummy and the large salad bar gives plenty of choice for people looking for a greener side to their fried chicken.

Not visited this place for years and was actually pleased that it hadn't changed! The mead is still lovely and the food was a good standard- a great place to visit with friends or a group for a fun night out!

Service was with the minimum effort, and then when we came to pay were told that we couldn't split the bill, which for a party of 10 is a) unheard of and b) ridiculously restrictive. Food is okay.

A must if you've never been! The meadery as it always is, fab fish bites, great salad bar, delicious cherry mean fizz and scrummy Mississippi mud pie ( ask for a portion of this desert to be taken out the freezer when you first order food then it's perfectly mouse 'y when you have dessert). Mead coffee was a great... More

The food is always piping hot and comes it very generous portions I love the half and half salad and chips option with the main... More

The food here is never going to win any culinary awards but at least you always know what you're going to get and you never ever leave still feeling hungry. The menu has barely changed over the last 30 years, but then why change a winning formula? Fried stuff with chips and/or salad! It's been a while since I've visited... More

Good fun and finger food at this family friendly eatery in Newlyn. Nice atmosphere and friendly service too. We always try and visit when we're in Cornwall and haven't been disappointed yet!
