We visited 'The Nap' last Friday evening. It was a cold, dark winter evening but it was lovely and warm inside and we quickly gravitated towards the cosy, roaring open fire. Bliss! One of us opted for the pork served with a mustard sauce and mash, the other had scampi. Both were delicious and served piping hot on equally hot... More

Lovely pub. Roaring fire really cosy . We went purposely to hear the cornish buoys but they weren't singing last night. Had a lovely meal though. Steak was lovely and cooked perfect. Treacle tart was delicious.

An excellent, unspoiled village pub. All our meals were superb. The fish & chips were equal to Rick Stein's which we'd had the day before. In truth the fish was better at the pub and the homemade tartar sauce infinitely better. There beer straight from the barrel is excellent.

A group of us (all ladies) enjoyed a really good meal last night at the Nap. Good food, good service, good atmosphere, and good entertainment from the Boscastle Buoys.

Next door to the Bottreaux House B&B. Excellent food and selection of ales. Pub has a real "oldy worldy" feel to it. Nice atmosphere and Sky Sports if the footie is on!

If a family of three adults, three young kids and two dogs walks in and the only table you want used (because an hour later all your restaurant tables are booked even though the family say they will be in and out in an hour) is in the bar where the locals are watching football, vapping, swearing, threatening others and...
