Popped in after having a meal elsewhere for a couple of drinks to end the night. Pleasant enough bar with a good variety of drinks to chose from. Staff friendly and efficient. Would imagine it gets very busy during the high season as the location is exc lent.

It is very difficult in England and in the other countries of the world to have a good "blue" steak. There the steak was perfect and at a very reasonable price The service was very friendly and very good The Prosecco was at a reasonable price For desert I had some Strawberries with clotted cream ! wow ! delicious !

Visited on Saturday, weather fantastic. Outside eating area was nearly full and we got the last table - overlooking Charlestown harbour and only yards away. Menu excellent, plenty of choice. The fish pie is superb as are the cod and chips. Without realising the time we found that we had spent over 2 hours enjoying the sun in a sheltered... More

30 years since I last came to Charlestown, now able to have a beer with my fish and chips. Very good menu and choice of local beers. Food cooked fresh and served hot. Warnings are put outside not to leave food unattended outside as Seagulls are prone to pick up whats left.

Lovely sunny day to sit and enjoy a drink overlooking Charlestown. Staff were fairly friendly ( a change in Cornwall) but not overly quick .

I had the best four day stay here at this hotel. Situated on the quayside of a Georgian Port, I found everything to make my holiday great. The service on booking in was great and the rooms, spacious and spotless. It is recommended to book for dinner at the restaurant as it does get busy and I can recommend the... More

The staff were excellent and the service was good, the food was very disappointing! After our previous three visits I was really looking forward to a birthday treat for my good friend, along with my wife and his, but we were very disappointed with the quality of the meat - not their usual supplier I would reckon, it was stringy...

We have visited this restaurant many times before, when it was owned by the Morcom family. The standard was always exceptional. We visited with friends last Sunday for their roast lunch and were very disappointed. The service was still good but our meals were not. The lamb was not very tasty and quite tough. The beef was worse. It was... More
