We both had the slow cooked beef casserole with chunky veg & topped with herb dumplings yum yum. There weren't any chunky veg, didn't think sliced onion counted and No herb dumplings. The waitress did say "sorry" the chef forgot them. Plenty of over good pubs around to spend £27 on two dishes !!!

We visited on a Sunday as we'd just arrived in nearby Penzance, and wanted an easy-to find venue for visitors later in the week. First impression: a very wet windy day day matched the pools of water in the car park. However, once inside, things improved considerably, with a very friendly welcome from the staff. The restaurant's view over the... More

Booked for an evening meal to celebrate a birthday. What a pleasant surprise to find smiling, friendly, helpful staff and a wonderful atmosphere, and the food....I can only say we have not enjoyed a meal so much in a very long time. We will DEFINITELY be going back. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

We had a lovely meal Thursday evening. Plenty of parking, easy to find. Pub is warm and welcoming as are the staff. Food is amazing, I ordered the butterfly Cajun chicken and it was divine, they provide very generous portions! Can't recommend enough - will definitely be going back when we visit again next year!

Its a very clean and smart place, the outside area is immaculate and over looking the Hayle estuary, there is also sleeping accommodation too. The food is well worth the money, as it... More

Came for a Sunday Carvery with my family. The staff seem confused and very unorganised, although friendly. Stood at the bar waiting to be served for about 5 minutes. We were seated and told to go to the Carvery when ready. I thought a Carvery was help yourself? But the staff put everything on a plate for you, which is... More

We booked this restaurant at the last minute for a family Birthday dinner the same evening (my nephew's 5th). We arrived to find the table decked out with Birthday trimmings and my nephew was delighted. This was not something we expected. We brought a small cake for him to have candles lit on it after our meal. The food at... More
