Visited this pub with friends who live locally for diner after reading reviews on Trip Advisor which seemed quite positive. Friendly enough staff and owner and good selection of beers and spirits. Service was prompt and efficient but sadly the food was very average, typical pub fare, plenty of it but lacking any quality. Would not recommend this estabishment

We called in here on our way back from Tintagel. We ordered Beef & Ale Pie and 2 portions of Scampi. The Beef & Ale Pie was great, Really tasty, hot and enjoyable. The scampi dishes were ok but could have been hotter.

Arrived early as they said it would be ok, but the host grunted at us and continued his phone call.
Room was lovely except the macerator toilet went wrong, was creating noise all night - kept my husband awake all night, would have been me too if I’d not taken a sleeping tablet. Our bathroom flooded in the corner and pub downstairs flooded too.
I know these thing do happen, but there was no apology! The attitude was “pants”!
We decided not to stay for the second night as there was no guarantee it would be fixed. The hosts wanted to charge us for both nights anyway! Should have got a discount for faulty plumbing. We didn’t pay for the second night - much to their consternation.
I was always taught, in business the customer is always right - they went to a different school apparently!

Room Tip: Away from the main road and not rooms 1 or 2 as they have macerator toilets.

Having taken time to reflect on your comments I feel I must respond and just clarify a couple of points.
When you arrived I acknowledged you and then completed my converstion with another customer who had called me with a query. There was no arrangment to check in prior to our advertised 14:00 time but you were allowed to do so as you needed to be at a wedding at 13:00pm. Requesting an early check-in in advance would have been appreciated and we would have been expecting you.
The problem with the plumbing was caused by an inability to follow a simple instruction given when you were shown to your room where you were asked not to put anything other than toilet paper or tissues down the toilet as they block the macerator system. The foreign object you decided to flush caused the blockage hence the issue and the resulting flooding both in your room and in the bar areas below. Our engineer attended site at the earliest point the following morning and cleared the item resolving the problem and the room was let on the subsequent night with no issue at all.
After paying for your first night your husband did state that you would return at 6pm to see whether the issue with the toilet had been resolved. It was resolved but you failed to return or notify us that you would not be returning. Yes we do value our customers but also expect them to be able to comply with a simple instruction so as not to inconvenience themselves or others in adjacent rooms.
