We ordered three dishes. The salt & pepper squid, batter tasted of rancid fat, the squid was tough and the salad slimy. The fish chowder, not a single piece of distinguishable fish. It was just what can only be discribed as mush. Served with a cheap part baked baguette. The halloumi and mushroom burger with sweet potato fries. Fries tasted of rancid fat and were over cooked, the pesto on the bread was very odd tasting. All in all one of the worst meals out we've had for a long time. Won't be going back.

We both enjoyed the steak with peppercorn sauce. The chips were superb I think I am addicted! Will be back again for sure.

Booked in advance, when we got there it’s a little extraordinary, not your typical pub but don’t let that put you off. The staff are amazing so friendly, relaxed atmosphere, dogs welcome. We had a starter, the nachos, to share, great portion, enough for two. Then we both had a pie and mash, amazing, you don’t need a starter with those as your main, so filling, so delicious, my pie ( pork belly and apple cider) was amazing, so much meat in it the pie was amazing. I would defo recommend going here., food amazing, staff amazing, we defo book again next year (we’re holiday guests, come to Newquay every year) did I mention it was amazing???

Decided to try this place out for a change, was a great experience. Food was very good and service great. Food started at 6pm but they allowed us to order earlier as the Chef turned up early (nice touch). Couldn't fault the food or service and we'll definitely return. Everything else being equal in business people make the difference and the staff here were excellent.
