Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came here after a lady in mousehole recommended it, so pleased we did. The place is lovely with pleasant staff, delicious food and a good selection of beers. I had the hake fillet with new potatoes and vegetables and my husband had the duo of pork. We both enjoyed our meals and would definitely return when we are in the area.

I started this review earlier but seemed to restricted by length. We arrived, our booking could not initially be found. We booked dinner, again this couldn’t be found. A drinks order was taken. Menus provided and order submitted; it took 45 minutes to serve (the kitchen was very busy and ur was very hot in the kitchen); this was their explanation, I kid you not. We had an early start the following morning, and had booked breakfast accordingly; the chef wasn’t in, the toaster blew the fuse board so no hot food available! Never again.

Excellant pint of Proper Job with excellant Sunday roast. Unfortunatly we were ushered out of lounge into a very basic public bar both with several empty tables for 2, then seated at table 10 faciing the bar with insufficent room to sit facing one another as staff continually brushed past table to serve.

This pub has easy parking and access. There are out door tables to enjoy a drink in the sun. Good range of local beers and cider. It is directly opposite the church and offers a good view of the old church tower.

Went 2 nights in a row for dinner. Good food, friendly atmosphere and good selection of beers. Cosy fireplace in the cooler months adds to the atmosphere. We were staying in the village, not at the pub, but would be happy to stay there in the future.

We visited for Sunday lunch in late October 2022. An excellent roast meal with choice of beef,gammon or turkey. Excellent quantity of well cooked meat and roast potatoes and copious amounts of 5 different vegetables all of a high quality. Inexpensive but of a high standard. Highly recommended.

We had a delicious meal, which was fantastic value. Good pub food. The staff were so bright and friendly, and everywhere clean . The beer was well kept, and the wine menu reasonable. The prices were average for pub drinks. We didn’t stay here so are unable to comment on the hotel rooms.

This review is regarding the inn. The stay was just okay. But I won't get into that. I initially booked through a well known 3rd party travel company and paid upfront. On arrival, the barman asked that I pay again, not having any record that I had paid. I left my contact details, and called several times, mostly being told the manager was not available and off the premises. I did speak to the manager once who told me they would look into the situation. I have received no further contact, and the 3rd party travel site is telling me they are not able to reach the hotel manager to discuss the issue. I will most likely have to dispute through my credit card company. Buyer beware, if you run into any snags, you will likely find this hotel very unresponsive and unwilling to help. I've yet to receive any follow up contact.
