This pub was great during the summer but I visited a couple of months ago, the owners have changed and sadly there's a lack of atmosphere and an overpriced menu, the owner wasn't particularly friendly didn't engage in conversation, hoping it improves.

Oh dear what a sad disaster. This was a great pub and with a trip to Polruan just for a pint of Ratter and a plate of Nachos ( or a "Whale" or indeed a "Fishwich). But new owners have arrived and ruined the place in short order! No WiFi anymore - even the smallest Greek taverna has WiFi FFS!!!! The menu is rubbish - like you would get at a Wetherspoons - gone are the Nachos the Fishwich and the Polruan Whale - all that stuff that made this place special. The 2 stars are for the log fire and the bar staff who though polite were clearly dispirited by the changes.A note to the new owner - the menu is boring and better suited to a city centre pub and when I did order "potato wedges" with added bacon (£1 supplement) it was revolting - yesterdays roasties swimming in grease hot yes but with the unevenness of heat of a microwave. We normally visit many times over the year as we live here in Fowey and have a rib mooring on the Polruan pontoon and a drink in the Lugger is a regular but it seems sadly no more - we couldn't wait to leave.

We should have realised that we had made a mistake when we were served room temperature white wine and poorly kept beer.

But the table was booked so we persevered. The meal was quite easily the worst pub meal we have ever had and incredibly over priced. Stone cold plates, over salted food and uncooked pastry were some of the low spots.

Very friendly people but not a great experience.

When we entered the pub the young man behind the bar was rather rude and not helpful or cheerful. We only stayed because the other pub was closed and we needed to have some lunch. We chose to have the shared Ploughmans to which I must say was good so no complaints there, only the staff needs to be polite.
