Had supper here one night. It's the only pub in the village and it's opposite a pretty little beach/cove. We were out of season so surprised at the warm welcome, the roaring fire, the dog friendly staff and a decent menu. OK, so there wasn't...More

We walked to Portmellon from Gorran Haven for Sunday lunch and were so disappointed. The food was just dreadful with the choice of roast beef or roast beef. The meat did not appear to have been carved from a joint and was over cooked and...More

I visited with wife and friends. It's an attractive location directly facing a sandy cove, so gets lots of in-season holiday trade, suggesting no strong impetus to try hard. That 'anything will do' attitude reflected in their staff, their cleanliness and their food. Given that...More

Stopped in for an evening meal and was greeted warmly. Friendly locals pub but with plenty of tourists. Food was fine - it's unpretentious pub grub. Nothing wrong with that! Good beer too

Popped in here for a Sunday lunch before looking at reviews on Tripadvisor. I'm glad we did as we may not have if I read some of the earlier reviews. OK, the decor is a little threadbare and ancient, but that's great, I'm fed up...More
