Nice place run by enthusiastic landlords.. Will no doubt change hands again when they run out of money and that it will not pay.

Much needed food after walking for miles and uphill . The landlady (I think) was really nice and welcoming. The food was good pub grub especially the chips . They have an amazing selection of beers also . Definitely would return.

We went into the pub with a group of 12 (we were staying nearby in Boscastle) Some selected from the Sunday lunch menu (Roasts) and some had other dishes. All the food was great but what really made it was the premises and more importantly the lovely girl who served us. She was warm and welcoming, jolly and accommodating. Nothing... More

This is the best Sunday roast I've ever eaten, including our own home cooked roasts! Staff were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was very welcoming, the pub feels like a pub and has so much charm and character with a beautiful log fire roaring away in the bar. Can't wait to come back for my Birthday!

We visited here on New Year's Eve as we were staying at a wonderful nearby lodge. Lovely staff, great food, wines and ales. Plus it's dog friendly! Definitely recommend eating/drinking here!
