Visited here while stopping in Port Isaac, what a lovely traditional building with a modern menu. The food here is second to none and there is something for everyone, the portions are so generous you’ll struggle to manage 3 courses despite wanting to! The landlady...More

Visited on the way back from a show. Really friendly family run business. The owner is a lovely woman from Australia called Wendy who welcomed us warmly. The menu was almost like an Australian/Asian/BBQ fusion menu which was incredible. There was a classic pub menu...More

Great food and service. We have eaten here regularly for a few years. Sirloin steak is amazing. All the food is very well presented, Puddings are a must!

We visited as the pub along the road had no availability and thank God we did! Menu was full of things we liked and a brilliant selection of Cornish gins on offer. Food arrived well presented and cooked excellently, would love to return.

What a selection of great food to choose from! We were spoilt for choice that is for sure. Not your average pub food, not a single onion ring in sight. A very extensive menu and the starters, mains and desserts were all lovely.
