Nothing to much trouble for the staff, fish and chips not on the evening menu but when asked cooked especially no problem at all. The scampi best I've ever had and the rest of the party all agreed , deserts... More

Just returned from an evening at The Bolingey Inn. The food, albeit not cheap, was fantastic and worth the money that we paid. Everyone's meals were fantastic. The fresh, breaded on site scampi, was then most amazing scampi I've ever eaten, the steak was delicious and the steak and ale pie was to die for. Accompanied by fresh cut chops,... More

Visited on a beautiful sunny day so sat outside with birds twittering. Very good choice of food from menu and specials board. Brie and cranberry salad lovely. Brie should have been warm but it wasn't! Still tasted great though. Good profiteroles for dessert even though I ordered banoffee pie! Free coffeee to make up for the mistake. Friendly, helpful service.

Places like this prevent you finding out what other restaurants have to offer whilst on holiday in Cornwall. The food is too good not to return! :) We have been visiting this pub for the past 3 years every winter and it has never disappointed. Truly good food. The food is consistently above and beyond what you'd expect. Great atmosphere,... More

I had the Chicken Balti which was very enjoyable followed by Callestick Ice cream. The Quiz was great fun, the service was great and the staff were very friendly. Great Inn to visit for drinks and food. Bolingey Inn also supports the St Agnes Head NCI and we thank them for their support.

The Bolingey Inn is one of the friendliest, traditional pubs I have ever visited. The locals are great, genuine in their friendliness, the staff are fantastic and very attentive and the food is wonderful. If you like great value, home cooked pub food then the Bolingey is the place. We had the pleasure of eating here on both Friday and... More
