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.

Loved this pub. Accessed by steep side steps, so quietly inside & out. Food was superb. We had fish goujons, home made chips ( fab), slow cooked pork, spaghetti Bol for our grandson. All delicious, super efficient, friendly staff. All in cosy warm surroundings, a...bit tight on space, very close tables as pub is very old & small. But it added to a great atmosphere.More

This place is amazing! We had walked from Looe to Polperro and stopped here for some lunch. We are all very satisfied with our foods and the service here is amazing. Great place.

Beautiful cosy pub with such a warm welcome. Staff so friendly and happy to see you, every customer was greeted with a smile. Food was delicious but particularly the dishes on the specials board were excellent. Great range of beer and wine. Cannot fault this...gorgeous pub. Cannot wait to come back.More

Everyone raved about this place so we had to go. The food and staff were really nice. The bar maid had returned after being away a while and it was a new menu so things were a bit confused. Not really sure about why it...was so heavily raved about as only 5 on Tripadvisor but still. Go next door…more space and a bit more relaxed.More

What a fantastic British Pub in a spectacular location. The Staff and atmosphere were very welcoming. This Pub is steeped in History with the low beams and real fireplace. Will definitely visit again.

A half term break in Polperro saw us call into this harbour-side pub on the Sunday for a Sunday lunch. Very busy indeed; we - a couple with a dog - struggled to fit inside at around 1pm but the two ladies behind the bar...(Francesca and partner) made us feel so welcome, got some drinks down us and helped us to find a table within minutes. A great roast followed by 3pm gentle guitarist, coupled with the fanatic hosting from the two ladies behind the bar led to us staying until around 10.30pm!! We visited this pub nearly everyday thereafter, whiling away the afternoons, sheltering from the Cornish rain. Though it’s a popular pub, we quickly learned the calmer times and actually the weekdays were quieter than the weekends, despite it being half term. Aside from the fantastic food (I think we ate here nearly every day…), the unique cosy atmosphere and great conversation with other customers, one of the biggest draws for us was the bar team. During our week-long stay we encountered eight different bar staff (!) - every single one of which was an asset to this pub. Never too busy to chat - yet never taking their eye off the ball - friendly and so accommodating. A special mention must be made to ‘Abbie’, whom we encountered only twice, but on each occasion made us feel like we were the only people to step into the pub all week. Genuinely interested in us, an infectious warmth, and later in the week she even stopped her car in a busy Polperro street when she saw us to ask us how we were enjoying our holiday. You’d never think she’d served hundreds of tourists that week. There is certainly a magic to this pub. Please, never change!More

Absolutely beautiful and characterful pub, friendly staff and fab atmosphere. The squid rings and chips and scallops and prawns were excellent and good value, the keralan curry was pretty tasteless and watery and the crab and prawn linguine was a bit dry so we wouldn't...recommend those two dishes personally.More

What a cracking pub. Felt the warmth of the place at the door before I even walked in. If you like pubs with character and personality you'll love it here. On my last visit the place was rocking with a band downstairs, had the family...with me so we squeezed up the stairs where they found us a table. Fresh as possible fish and chips washed down with pints of Otter. Just brilliant.More

This was our second visit in 4 days which speaks volumes. The service, atmosphere and food is very good. I had the best scallops and prawns I’ve had anywhere. The pub is dog friendly and there are small corners to sit out of the way...with an anxious dog like ours.More

What an absolute gem of a find! An artist in the village pointed us in the direction of The Blue Peter and we were not disappointed. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and the food was amazing. Now, I'm very hard to please but...the chips were the best I've ever had out and the burger was to die for. The beef and pork ragu linguine were fantastic, my family couldn't fault it. A decent sized portion. Served nice and hot by a lady with a smile. Don't walk past this place, go in, you won't be disappointed.More
