Myself and my three friends decided to stop off here on our way home to St.Ives. The waitress behind the bar was very very unwelcoming and didn't smile once, she barely even spoke to us, we asked her a simple question about the menu but she had no knowledge at all and had to ask someone sitting at the bar...

Good menu choice. We both enjoyed our lunch very much. My vegetable lasagne was lovely. Fast and very pleasant service from Kate who made us feel very welcome. Lovely old traditional pub decor, spotless toilets and very dog friendly.

A nice family friendly place with good food. Would recommend for people to stop and try the food. The staff were very pleasant and didn't leave us waiting long for food which was also to a nice standard. I would return if I came in the direction again.

Reviewing food only:- We (4 of us) found this place by chance, looking for somewhere for a sensibly priced meal on the way back to our accommodation. It looks old fashioned, slightly shabby in the nicest possible way. Staff were very friendly & helpful and the food was excellent & very good value. My steak & kidney pie was excellent-lots... More

We randomly found this pub while on holiday in the area and were glad we did. The food was great with good prices, lovely friendly service and family friendly too. We visited on more than one occasion.

I holiday regularly in Cornwall and always make sure that this pub is my first port of call! The food is absolutely second to none and the friendliness of the manager and staff exceeds all expectations. The Sunday lunches are home made and not the frozen slop usually served in a pub and the other pub lunches are amazing. I... More

The staff were friendly and the prices were reasonable, but I can only comment on the Baked potato and Tuna with Mayo that I had, and that was "acceptable". It was well cooked and well presented, however, for me personally, I felt that although the Tuna was plentiful, it was a little "tart" ( ?cheaper version). May return but not... More
