The pie couldn't have been better but service was a bit sketchy. Wonderfully quaint rooms and a decent wine list too.

Interesting and quirky décor. Let down by average service and bits of last person's meal on bench cushion.
Food was good pub fare and overall atmosphere was a busy and happy place.

Visited here after a meal in nearby pub - following disappointing let down by local Mexican restaurant for birthday celebration. We were all dressed up -dresses and kilts, and the staff could not have been more welcoming. Fabulous atmosphere, great music and very intriguing building. Had a great evening in the bar and would like to thank them for a great end to my birthday. We returned the next day for afternoon drinkies. Will definitely revisit next time we are in Penzance.

Dave Collins, His wife Jenny & daughter Alice where over here on holiday from New Zealand, we normally meet at a venue close to where they are staying, So we met at the Admiral Benbow, looked it up on tripadvisor as you do, & we where not disappointed Excellent meals had by all, I had the Steak & Ale Pie, yes I will recommend it, & the establishment. Staff where welcoming & friendly, not to overwhelming. We all enjoyed the experience, & I will go there for a meal again soon.

We've just got home after a super evening at this quirky pub. We were seated quickly and enjoyed having a good look at all the decor which makes you feel like you are on a pirate ship! Our food was great, generous portions and reasonable price and the sticky toffee cheesecake is now my favourite pudding! The staff were friendly and helpful and I'm glad we booked ahead as it was quite busy, even for a Monday night. We'll definitely be back. Thank you!
