We ate here once, and came for a drink several times. We had never been to Padstow before, and didn't know that nearly all the restaurants are very pricey and seem to need a reservation to get a table. We spotted the board outside the Old Custom House advertising two steak meals and a bottle of wine for £30. (or there abouts), which is good value wherever you go. The bar and eating area were very quiet so we decided to give it a go, and were very impressed with the food we had. There were four of us, two had the steak meals offer, hubby had a steak (which was about £13.), and I had mackerel salad from the specials board as I don't eat meat. All three said the steaks were excellent, and perfectly cooked to specification, and my very generous serving of mackerel was delicious. The salads served with the meals were also lovely, with a beautiful dressing (dunno what it was but it was nice!). Chips were usual pub chips, but I think that they were better than the ones we had at Steins chippy later in the week. We had two cheeseboards between four of us for dessert which was ample, with a good selection of cheeses, a bowl of chutney and a few little cheese biscuits. It was the only place we ate at which offered a cheeseboard (though we didn't go to any of the 'posh' eateries). Later in the week we went for drinks in the pub, and on the Friday night they had some live music which really gave the place a buzz. I got the impression that the staff keep a close eye on things when it's busy, and that any signs of trouble would be swiftly dealt with. Overall, I think that they have got things about right here, nice food, nice beer, and most importantly a nice cheeseboard!
