As this is a local pub we've visited several times, on each occasion we've been left feeling as though we were not really welcome. The food is big and I've had the salads before now which were ok but won't be rushing back.

Good pub food and St Austell ales. It is necessary to book your table most of the time and during winter be sure to double check opening times. According to some, service can be a bit 'sharp' but didn't experience this and was made to...More

I know. You can get fish with potatoes veg or salad and other meals without bread or wheat but I recommend you give them a call and I am sure they can guide you. Enjoy!

Situated between two popular holiday parks in Hayle, Cornwall. We have a great blend of tourists and locals alike. Children and dogs are welcome. Great beer on offer and very tasty homemade pub grub served everyday.
