I'm a regular visitor here at The Lugger Restaurant and Bar. If I wasn't a local, I'd definitely stay here. However, being partial to good Carvery meals, this tops them all (including ones in London and the U.S.A.) My friends and associates often join me here to eat and drink. The decor and ambience are uplifting and tastefully done. Stunning... More

I brought my daughter here for her birthday as that what she had requested to do, the staff was really friendly and very helpful on any questions my children asked and the food was lovely.

Loads of assorted fresh vegetables and succulent meats. And proper good stuffing! Really attentive service from all the hard working staff. Will definitely go again for Sunday carvery when next in Penzance.

On a day visit to Penzance. As title, I can't remember a better dish including many holidays in France/Brittany. The Whole Sea Bream was cooked to perfection, new potatoes with herbed butter and baked peppers, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes etc.....delightful. Whole experience was enjoyable, sea view, watching the world go by, staff were very helpful even though very busy. Would highly... More

We have been here quite a few times and my reviews have always been favourable. Such a great pub overlooking the sea with great entertainment on a Sunday. However this Sunday, the carvery was terrible 🙁 The gravy tasted of salt, the vegetables were only warm, the cauliflower in the cauliflower cheese was very hard, tasted frozen and as for... More

Popped in here with my son before the Pirates' game on a Sunday and a bit disappointed TBH. The carvery was nothing special. Meat was ok, but veg and potatoes were either mushy and sludgy (the veg) or like hand grenades (the potatoes). A shame. We will continue our search for a pre-match regular.....

When we arrived we was told we had to sit in a side room not the restaurant because we had our dog which was fair enough, the table clearly hadn't been wiped all day, despite having fresh cutlery on it. My partner went to order the Carvery for the two of us and we went up one at a time... More
