Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice tasty grub. Best meal we had in our time at Cornwall. Definitely will let friends know. Prices were not bad either. Good stop when going further west.

Great little local pub and served lovely food. I had the mussels and others in our group had chicken burgers and beef burgers. The portion of mussels was huge and it was all really tasty. The staff were really friendly and helpful too. We'd most...definitely go back when we're next down in Penzance.More

Down to earth pub with excellent fresh, local food just back from the Penzance seafront. Cosy, characterful interior with some local art on the walls and clearly used by locals who were friendly. Food was good value at between £13 and £18 for most main...courses but much better quality than many more expensive places. All the meals we had were excellent and our older kids enjoyed their burger and fish pie whilst we had fish dishes from the specials board. These were absolutely delicious - wonderfully fresh and well prepared. The hake with samphire and caper butter sauce was possibly the best such dish I've had and exactly what I love to find on holiday near a fishing port. Staff were very friendly and helpful and food came quickly despite them being pretty stretched. The atmosphere in the bar area where we ate was a traditional, busy pub with music and bustle. If you are after a delicious, good value meal in a lively classic pub setting a few steps from the sea then the Navy Inn is perfect.More

We called on a whim tonight as we forgot it was Sunday and forgot to go shopping. They managed to fit us in as a family of 4. When we arrived the reception was friendly and the atmosphere as you would expect in a pub....It was Sunday so there was a roast on as well as some meals in the specials board. The menu wasn't overly extensive but there was enough of a choice. The kids both had a beef roast, according to my son the Yorkies were better than mine but not as good as his uncles, this is a very high accolade, the beef was nice but a little chewy and they roasties and veg were a good compliment. My husband had the Cajun chicken burger which was lovely and I had the Hake, this was really outstanding, my compliments to the chef. This was follow by a round of brownies and cheesecake, which were all tasty. Overall, it was reasonably priced with drinks and deserts it came to around £95 and hit the spot. Thank you for a lovely meal.More

We went to The Navy 3 times during our stay in Penzance. The food was excellent, beer was kept well and service was good. Worth booking but on our last night, the table we had booked was occupied! Not worth dropping the ranking for thatm
