Coming home from a late day out we stopped in about 8.30. Big car park which was a quarter full which is normally not a good indication especially in the height of summer. We all decided to try it. Inside and outside was spacious. Kids loved the play area and pool tables. Very friendly staff. Good choice of food. Food came quick for all 8 of us. Big size portions for adults and kids. Food was hot. Food was excellent! Dessert was also excellent. Bar staff were friendly. Only negative was the mens toilets were smelly. We all really enjoyed the night, just cant understand why it wasn't packed..

Due to the rain we were looking for a pub where the children could play. It's a bit scruffy and dark and the food is average. Very busy pub so advise booking in advance.
Messed up our food order twice and waitress was sullen.

Would recommend the Fort Inn in Newquay which is much nicer and not too far to drive.

I left a review for this on their hotel page by mistake, to re-cap the lunch we had was really nice, a tuna baguette and a bacon & stilton jacket spud, the pub in general was nice, beer garden great and I'd happily spend a good few hours here.

I commented that the bar staff where underwhelming and received a response from the manager there that it was his/her 14 year old son in training, however they hadn't read the review properly because it was the older man on the bar that was "robostaff".
Unfortunately I can't reply to their post on that page, so I'm trying here.

called in for a meal with my husband, 2 teenage sons and our 3 year old. not a lot of choice on the menu, when food did come it was very greasy and cold, and just not very nice in general.
Plus side fab play area for the kids

Recently visited this Inn for lunch - 7 family members in our party. Ordered from the fairly extensive menu that boasted a huge range of "homemade" dishes. Really that many homemade? Anyway our food and drink bill came to around £60 -the food wasn't too bad but one of our party wanted a glass of water with ice (being a very hot day, not surprising that ice was requested). Big mistake - apparently you can have a glass of water for free but will be charged for ice - allegedly to help pay for the electricity for the ice making machine !! One has to enquire as to what the mark up is for food and drink orders - is it so low that ice is on the menu? Absolutely ludicrous. Asked to speak to manager - funnily enough, like Elvis, he had left the building and had his staff take the flak for this.
We will not be returning to this tight fisted establishment.
