Lovely local, nice people and great food! Might look small inside but the food is to die for amazing steaks! Juicy and cooked to perfection! There might of been a wait but well worth it! Will definitely eat there again!

We enjoyed a casual pub dinner at this Pub overlooking Newlyn Harbour. We ate the seafood pie with potatoes and peas. The portion was generous and freshly prepared. Good pub food!
