An absolute pleasure to visit the Pilchards on Saturday. The wonderful staff could not have been more hospitable. Thank you for your lovely food and explanation of Guinness thing. (Blue tooth thermonuclear apparently 🤣)
This venue has the whole waiting thing sorted to a T. We were shown to a very pretty garden where we could sit and drink till our table was ready.
Overall, with the service given and the high quality of the food, both myself and...my partner had a great relaxing experience.More
Excellent food in a lovely cornish pub. Yes you have to put your name on a list for a table but you won't wait long. The fish n chips are really good and huge also the fish platter was great we would definitely recommend a...visit. The service and staff are top notch as well.More
A fantastic find in Polperro, fantastic food & service. The lady at front of house was excellent during a very busy lunchtime rush. We waited only
about 10 mins on the garden terrace before our table was ready. Be prepared to be hungry as the...meals are on the large side. We ordered five different meals between the six of us and every one was beyond excellent.
Highly recommended this fantastic pub.More
we stayed in Polperro for a week, and by far the Three Pilchards was our favourite watering hole! Very busy all the time, but from the personal greeting and table allocation, to the attentive table service couldn't fault a thing! watching the meals coming out...and hearing the comments from happy diners, we had our final holiday meal here and wow!!!! the portion sizes are not for the faint hearted - I picked a lite bite (fish goujons) with side of chips which was super and just the right size for me, whilst "Him in Doors" went for the fish and chips he'd been eyeing up all week! should be called whale and chips! not sure how, but he almost cleared the plate! Special shout out to all the friendly staff, but especially Ashley, Shay, Mat and Jez - customer service at its best!More
If you ever find yourself in Polperro, and I highly recommend that you do, you must eat at The Three Pilchards! A bustling pub with great service and food to match! Lovely atmosphere and set in the amazing location of Polperro fishing village! Give it...a try, you wont be disappointed!More
Went here for lunch but unfortunately, there were no tables available but no worries they took our name and said they would call us when one was available. We went for a walk and just under an hour later a table was ready.
The fish...and chips were absolutely amazing and very tasty 😋 the fish was very soft, not dry and the batter very crispy. The service was great too. Would definitely recommend this place it was definitely worth waiting for. Would return here if we visit Cornwall againMore
