Excellant!!! Lovely room, friendly hosts, the menu is limited but they were more than creative in accommodating special diets. Best burger ever!!!

Superb dinner last Friday, belly/fillet of pork on a quince foam. Brilliant! Wife had the traditional fish and chips. The weekend specials are reasonably priced, as is the general menu. If your in Penryn, don't miss.

Visited a few times, love the food, the atmosphere and the Hayley's cider (where on Earth can I buy this cider?!). Pizzas are delicious (specially the turkish one).

Last visit we enjoyed crab pasties - this time we had blackened fish which was just as good. Also stopped by for Sunday lunch which was lovely and filling.

Stayed here on a visit to the University. No parking barring a fair walk away, but that's Penryn for you! This place has a friendly vibe with its cosy low ceilings and comfortable seating. Food was great and the overnight room was clean and functional...More
