The hospitality at the Top House was excellent. The River Fal mussels were gorgeous... And in a different sauce, tomato based with a kick of chilli! It was wonderful.... They are also dog friendly in the bar. Will certainly visit again...

Ate here twice whilst on holiday. Good variety of locally sourced food available. Freshly cooked to order. Large selection of beers and local ales. Last but not least the friendliness of the staff, hence the two visits.

To be honest we only had a drink in here, and sat outside, but looking at the menu, and the empty plates from other people who did eat, i would say they have a very good and varied food range, and their prices are not that bad, taking into account where you are,they have a fine range of drinks, including...
