This is a small pub with a small bar, scrubbed down tables and a roaring fire, and eclectic decor, somewhat reminiscent of the "spit and sawdust" style. The welcome is very warm, the landlord expansive, and the food really good, by a top-notch chef. We were joined briefly by the resident small terrier, who sat at the table and listened... More

Great pub well worth eating there. I have been three times recently moved near by. This pub is quirky, welcoming and the service and food second to none. The Sunday lunch is fantastic after listening to the music is lovely to end your Sunday. The service is good and the bar chap is friendly . Really can't fault it.

This is a typical OLD Cornish local pub - it won't look that pretty compared to the Weatherspoons and 'designed' pubs old or young. Service was EXCELLENT and the food was AWSOME. - in a friendly way rather than a posh restaurant sort of way if that makes sense. A great menu - not too huge and not geared to... More

The Rod and Line was decorated recently in around 1950. It would lose some of its character without the brown smoked ceiling. It has a touch of Fawlty Towers and can be chaotic but it is our favourite pub and the food is amazing. The landlord used to be a fisherman and the menu is fresh and very fishy. His... More

Chose to eat here based on the many positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and not knowing anywhere specific to eat in the area. We booked a table, and it was a good job we did as the tables were full when we visited. The pub isn't somewhere you'd happen upon by chance, and if you wandered in you may very well... More

This is a traditional pub that looks as though it hasn't been altered for a century. Food is chosen from a menu chalked on a blackboard and is really fresh and simply cooked - we had sprats that tasted straight out of the sea, delicious crab salad and fish and chips. The staff are friendly and welcoming and there is... More

Haven't been in here in probably 30 years, so wasn't sure what to expect. Same rustic charm, good service and range of drinks for such a small bar. The kitchen was very busy but not slow. Excellent food. There was a big party later and the place was jumping. From the outside looks very run down but it all adds... More
