A really great place from which to explore this wonderful, most southerly point of the county. Truly comfortable room that was just perfect for our family. Lovely double bed with bunk beds for the children. Exceptionally clean and warm with everything that was needed for our late Autumn trip 'down west'. The traditional Cornish pub was lovely, with well looked...

My husband and I recently spent three nights in this lovely Inn. The term - "Warm and Friendly greeting awaits" comes to mind when I think of this little gem. The Inn has only eight rooms and the one that we occupied was very spacious as was the bathroom. A comfy bed, arm chairs, tea and coffee making facilities -...

My husband and I popped in for some lunch and loved the proper pub atmosphere the place brings. We had baguettes and they were delicious! Bread seemed freshly baked and the best we've had for a long time. Would definitely recommend a visit.

The hospitality at the Top House was excellent. The River Fal mussels were gorgeous... And in a different sauce, tomato based with a kick of chilli! It was wonderful.... They are also dog friendly in the bar. Will certainly visit again...
