old pub near harbour, very welcoming and professional team, nice atmosphere with locals and tourists, the interior is comfy rather than ancient, real ale ok, food deserves a special mention, we returned here more than the other pubs, good menu with specials boards offering extra fish dishes, portions large, well cooked and tasty. recommended. also dog friendly

Had lunch in the pub last weekend as part of a lovely weekend away. The staff were so friendly and the food I must say was without a doubt the best roast dinner I've ever had. Thanks so much to the staff. Great experience and well done

Popped in a few days ago for quick drink and the wife had some soup. Excellent it was and I also loved having the pub dog hanging around me too. Super animal that could possibly talk if coaxed! My only gripe is I found the 80p charge for using a debit card under £15 a bit steep. We spent £13.50... More

Had a great pub lunch here, the three of us had the Cajun chicken, scampi & pork burger, all meals were good value and very tasty. The pub is also very dog friendly and service is very good.

Parked at the top of Polperro and walked down to this lovely little Pub. It was a chilly evening, and I had a cold! The warm fire and great food were very welcoming....has improved since I last visited 😀

This was our first visit to polperro and our lunch was lucky dip really as we didn't know where to go. Sunday roast varies widely so you never quite know what to expect. We chose roast beef and it was served with six vegetables, Yorkshire pudding, potatoes, stuffing ball, gravy. It was delicious and we were both full up. My... More

Five of us visited The Three Pilchards for lunch; it was quite busy even though it was a November Saturday. The staff were helpful to get our odd number party sat down, and quick to take our orders. Drinks arrived quickly, but the food was a while arriving. At least two other parties were served while we waited so we... More
