“Delicious fish”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We booked as an end of holiday treat and it certainly was a treat. Very warm welcome and sat at lovely table in the window. Surroundings unusual and a little musty but did not detract from the meal. Service was outstanding - helpful but not obtrusive, and menu explained along with daily specials. Food was of a very high standard and beautifully presented. Large portions - my starter would be the equivalent of a main in some places (goujons). Thoroughly recommend

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you personally thought it felt a little musty but the building is about 160 years old now and spotlessly clean. We are happy though that you enjoyed your meal with us and appreciate our portion sizes!!

“Fantastic proper restaurant”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

If you're going to, or near Looe, make sure you have a meal here. The food is fresh, proper and cooked perfectly. You get a warm genuine restaurant welcome as the staff are fantastic.

On a holiday of fish and chips sometimes it's nice to have a proper meal cooked perfectly in great company. Definitely recommend strongly!

“Of the cuff meal”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

My fiancé and I wandered in off the street one evening feeling a little peckish and what a lovely evening we had. Food was top notch and service very friendly and excellent. A lovely perfect evening in a lovely quirky setting.
