Visited for dinner on a winter break. It was Children in Need night, so was busy and bustling. Also reason they were slow with meals. Food good, and staff pleasant.

Very popular for food, we had a bit of a wait to get a table, but the food was excellent and they were superb and dealing with dietary requirements too. Booking a table maybe wise at busy times! Beer was also great, with a selection of local beers.

My wife and I have tried other St Austell pubs and restaurants before and they have been average to good for food, but the Atlantic was excellent and one of the best we ate in during our Scilly Isles holiday. We had a delicious cream of vegetable soup for starters and then we both had the pork steak in a... More

Last year when we stayed in Hugh Town we enjoyed a meal in the bar here. This year we booked a table in the restaurant which had the benefit of harbour views. The food was really good again - my steak was cooked perfectly and my husband enjoyed his roast dinner. There is a lovely ambience, the staff are friendly... More

we have eaten at this pub on numerous occasions for over twenty years, always satisfied. Last evening, we both ordered steak pie with chips and peas and the order was delivered very quickly. Unfortunately due to the low temperature of both the food (all of it) and the plate it was hardly edible. We tried several parts of the meal... More

We only can comment on the bar meals- one of the few places locally open on a Sunday evening. This was traditional but average pub grub at a very reasonable price, served very quickly in a very busy and noisy pub.

The beer was excellent at this smart hotel with pleasant patios overlooking the harbour in St Marys. It was spot on every day we visited. We didn't try the food, although it looked like standard pub fare. If there is space, try the sund deck, as it has lovely views over the harbour and a perspex wall to keep out... More

This is a very busy popular Pub but you can make reservations for the restaurant part with lovely sea views over the bay. Early on a busy Sunday evening we both elected for the "Sunday Roast" and whilst the vegetables were freshly cooked, the potatoes and pork (the only choice left) were just warm and must have been cooked many...

Been before and it seems better than ever. Good (pub) food, great staff, friendly service, not expensive. If you are in a hurry to eat (why would you be?), eat in the bar. Can get busy but a good atmosphere. Restaurant is quieter and more space.

Thank Robert W
