We had the best cod, chips and mushy peas that we had in Cornwall. Unique pub and very friendly staff. Good beers to go with it.

Although I love this little pub and especially the balcony, I think the food is overpriced for pub grub. Staff very friendly and helpful and can highly recommend for a drink with a view. A firm favourite of ours when in Port Issac.

A fantastic pub to dine in or just have a coffee. Full of charm and boasting fantastic views over beautiful Port Isaac harbour. If you are in the area it’s definitely worth visiting. 👍👍👍👍

Could do with better customer service. Surroundings were very basic but the prices were up to the going rate. Not much else to say apart from we never had any food there due to the above reasons

This is a VERY popular place, so book in advance or arrive early. The staff were really friendly, helpful and chatty --- despite being really busy. They serve home-made nachos and have Proper Job on draught; it doesn't get any better than that.

Hi, I too have no connection with Port Isaac other than in the capacity of a tourist who visited in July 2016. You state you notched up a fine of £100 in spite of finding a parking space in the overflow car park. If this... More
