Me and my parents went here at the end of a little pub crawl around Padstiw and had booked a table for food. We were greeted very kindly and were told that a few items on the menu had sold out, which was a shame but couldn't be helped. We were shown to our table and promptly ordered our meals.... More

Popped in just for drinks which were reasonably priced. It was quiet as food service was over but the lady behind the bar was really friendly and chatty. Nice little sun trap at the back , nice and clean. Quaint inside would go back

What a lovely traditional pub. We stayed in a room for a night and the room was excellent. Breakfast was really good and didn't need to eat anything for the rest of the day. Had our evening meal here and it was ginormous and beautiful. The owners and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Would definitely come back... More

Walked in for a pint to be met with a horrible smell. The toilets smelt better !!!. No way was I going to drink a pint with that odour!!!. Sorry but think you may have a problem with your drainage !!!!.

Been a couple of times during our stay and had fantastic food and service each time. Proper pub with proper pub food. The fish pie was a form favourite.

We may or may not have been seen in this pub every night of our stay in Padstow in April last year ;) The staff are absolutely brilliant and the atmosphere is amazing.

We visited this pub/eatery by chance and found it to be excellent. Staff friendly drink and food very good. The fish fish of the day and steak were very good, did not leave feeling hungry. Thanks to all the staff.

We had a meal here after arriving late in Padstow one February Thursday evening. This is a cosy pub, obviously popular as it was fairly full. The lady at the bar was friendly and welcoming but serving on her own so found it difficult to serve people promptly. Having found a table we looked at the menu which was standard... More

My husband and I looked in at this pub during a summer visit to Padstow and found we couldn't get a table for dinner as it was so busy. This time, in quieter February, we decided to try again and were not disappointed. The dining area is separated from the main body of the bar and provided a pleasant spacious... More
