Had a bit of drama at the bar as the card machine was not working correctly but sorted in the end.
Ordered food burger and fish and Chips. Food came in reasonable time on arrival the burger was stone cold, my fiancé complained and the problem was sorted with an apology. Fish and chips were fine.
I had the waffles for pudding, not great, very dry been stood out for some time I suspect. Overall just 'ok' much better meals to be had
Fistral surf diner just down the road does similar style food with the views of the sea and is oh so much better !

My husband and I both ordered a steak one with a pepper sauce when it arrived both the steaks were luke warm along with the sauce,having waited for 20 mins we declined to have the steak replaced we were offered our money back which we took.We also thought the drinks very expensive £10.50 for two large glasses of wine the bottle was'nt much more.

We had a coffee here and then came back to eat as we were so impressed with the atmosphere and menu choices. The local crab was a highlight.

On honeymoon so looked for somewhere nice for a meal. What a mistake! Pleasant surroundings but waited 45 mins for food. Specified well done steak & was told there was a button for it on the till so they would make sure it was done this way. When food arrived the steak still had blood oozing out of it all over the plate & what was cooked properly was pure gristle. Went to the bar to tell them it wasn't cooked as asked & was told they would sort it. It came back & had just been heated up & put on another plate & was unable to eat it so left it. What a waste of money! Even the burger wasn't that good for the money. The staff had attitude & it was an effort for them to come & collect the offending meal even though they didn't do anything to it to make it edible for me. Felt sick for the rest of the evening as the chips i did eat were sat in blood. Would never go back or recomend this place.
