Recommended this inn through friends and had to try it. Couldn't have chosen a worse day weather-wise. Received a warm welcome and open fire. Enjoyed immensely bowls of fish chowder, tomato and five bean soup and crab sandwiches. Whilst not the cheapest of pubs, food and traditional style of pub made this a must to visit if in area, particularly... More

We visit the Halzephron on a Sunday lunchtime and although we found it difficult to park we could see why. The cosy pub was heaving with people, the busy atmosphere was so welcoming. We were given a table pretty much straight away and had the ability to order from their lunch or main menu. Two of us opted for the... More

Christmas Eve, Went for meal with my wife. All started well and food was good. However at 9-00pm the staff started re organising the dining room we were in when we had not finished our wine and coffees. We got up and left without finishing our drinks and without waiting for the Christmas draw which we had just paid into.... More

Had an excellent pub lunch at this very welcoming and dog friendly pub while on holiday in this beautiful part of Cornwall in September.

Visited on a quite Monday evening with a number of friends. We were made very welcome by a pleasant young lady who showed us to our table. The pub was lovely and warm and is full of character and served real ale. I had a blue steak with all the trimmings and it was superb. The meat was beautifully cooked... More

I've been coming to the Halzephron since I was a boy and they wouldn't let me in. Now I'm 47 I don't have to sit on the wall outside with a packet of crisps and a coke. Beer is excellent, especially the Porthleven. Food is also first class with an especially good selection of fish. (I know they are by... More
