Went here yesterday for lunch, looked ok from the outside but the meal was one of the worst I have ever had, it was inedible. The turkey was tough, dry and old, same for the roast potatoes, both must have been cooked at least a week previously, vege was bland and smothered in bland gravy. Returned it and at least... More

All I can say is the reviews are correct and if I'd had a signal to check out beforehand we wouldn't have bothered. Absolutely shocking. And they clearly expect complaints as no apologies were forthcoming... Avoid!!

I visited two evenings running and was very pleased to find quality and choice were maintained. The restaurant was clean throughout and the staff very attentive despite being busy with clients coming and going throughout. There was a good choice of wines and beers as well as soft drinks and prices were reasonable.

Nice people and helpful. the menu covers the exterior, some of the interior and in parts is also on paper. Thoroughly confusing..... they could safely cut it down by 75% Rump steak was rare as requested. Almost three pounds seems a tad sharp for adding a sauce... Crab salad was a slightly sad affair. The salad was somewhat over-refridgerated and... More

I visited this restaurant with my family in August & was delighted with the extensive lunch menu, unfortunately the evening menu is not so good. The food was delicious, well cooked and a good portion. I had sea bream, my husband had steak & chips and my son had pizza. The service was quick and the prices very reasonable.

Called in for a sandwich and I wish I had never bothered. The Pepsi lacked syrup and the glass was very gritty like it hadn't been washed properly. My tuna sandwich came and it was limper than a lettuce leaf!! The chips I ordered were frozen fries over cooked hard and full of grease. This place was awful.

Dinner was rubbish, drinks were rubbish and the service was rubbish. There are loads of nice places to eat in looe but this isn't one of them.

I genuinely can not understand the poor reviews for this restaurant, maybe the menu/staff/chef had all changed the night we went?! Booked a table for four on the evening of our visit for 2100 - which around cornwall isn't often possible as most restaurants do not want to cater for parties late into the evening. lovely service & really nice...

Although there was nothing particularly bad about the place, it flattered to deceive. We had the lemon sole, which was adequate, but the deserts on offer were poor.
