Was on a shopping trip to Penzance when we dropped into the Pirate for a meal. Was pleasantly surprised by the service and quality of the food served. Will be back soon.

I visited here for takeaway fish and chips this week, and had the best yet! The fish had a crisp light batter and just fell apart, perfectly cooked. The chips are fresh potatoes and delicious. The staff are friendly, polite and welcoming.
