Regular visitors to Newquay over the last 15 years but only discovered the place after following the signpost from the main road. It's a bit off the beaten track and seems very much a local community pub (which isn't a criticism in any way at...all) but staff were friendly and efficient, food and drink were absolutely fine and reasonably priced.More

Decent choice on the menu. Good value for money. Dog friendly. Great hosts. Short drive from centre of Newquay. Would visit again.

First impressions were good, friendly staff, good atmosphere. Ordered food from the table using the app, great. Alarm Bells should have gone off how quickly the food was delivered.... The burger although very non descript and obviously not made from decent meat was nothing compared...to the 'hunters chicken'. It sat in a swathe of liquid, not a Hunters sauce, and when you cut it, it was too firm. The texture was hard to describe, but it was in-edible and tasteless. We both tried it, it was disgusting. It was sent back and refunded and the staff were apologetic. All in all, I will never eat there again despite the other reviews.More

This is a lovely place set in a village location just outside Newquay and it offers the whole ‘village pub’ experience with indoor and outdoor seating, although it’s advisable to book for dinner if you want to sit inside. Ordering was a little difficult as...you can only order via an app. They do offer free wi-if but it’s open / un-secure but if was difficult getting payment through. There is a ‘courtesy’ tablet they will lend you if you haven’t got a phone or yours won’t work but they will not take an order from you directly in any circumstances so you need to be able to use apps etc. Also, we were a larger group and made them aware that as we were two families we would place two orders but we were together so ideally would like food together.. they won’t do that either and we were served 25 minutes apart, so if you go as a group and want to eat together then order together and work it out afterwards! This place is let down badly by its staff. None of them were friendly or helpful, in fact some were rude. And almost made it seem that customers were an inconvenience. They have a policy of having to wear face coverings in all indoor areas, which isn’t a problem to us, but we were amused by the fact that only one member of staff had one one and that was pulled down over her chin whilst we saw her chasing and shouting at other customers.. One of the other highlights was when a young waiter passed us and my friend asked him if he has a minute.. he simply replied ‘no’ and carried on walking by.. The food that we had was excellent however, which is the one saving grace of the whole experience. With the great food and lovely venue this place could be excellent.. but not until the front of house staff are sorted out as they are very poorMore

Had a nice evening meal at the farmers arms whilst on holiday in the area. Tables well spread out and felt COVID safe. Good menu and reasonable prices. Only problem was having to order through an app but it was not the worst one we...had to use. Food was delivered quickly and what we ordered was very pleasant. Very nice desert menu too.More
