In Cornwall for 5 days and ate here twice. Fantastic carvery with a choice of roasts. The main menu looked to be good too. The desserts were superb. This pub/restaurant offers fantastic value for money and quick and efficient service. Would highly recommend.

We often visit this restaurant as the Carvery is so good with lots of choice. Desserts are amazing and highly recommended. Quite expensive in general and twice now we have been overcharged when paying at the bar.
