“FOOD CHRONIC!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We went to this venue today 20/04/2014 at 3.30 PM.

We were sat down at a table and left to work out the menu by our self, we had to ask for the staff to give us a explanation on the way the system works.

Food was absolutely discusting, only a choice of 2 meats, the beef was BLUE, blood everywhere, chewy like rubber, well over priced, worth £4.50 not £8, the roast potatos was were black like charcoal and the cabbage was like WIRE.

The suede was watery and resembled something out of the movie "Oliva".

AVOID AT ALL COSTS, GO TO WETHERSPOONS BETTER FOOD BETTER QUALITY SERVICE AND COST EFFECTIVE.

“Excellent welcome for "grockles"!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

we visited this pub primarily to watch our favorite sports teams as the local caravan park we were at didn't have SKY sports, what a fab decision! superb hostelry provided by the young lady from atherstone? near Bolton (i believe) and made to feel welcome by all.
because of this we ate hear several times (superb quality food) and for the food, service and hospitality i would recommend to all. only down point that stopped me giving five is as an ex smoker, to have to walk through the smoking area to get to the gents is very poor!, fix this and you have five from five

“Great for Sport”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We stayed at a local caravan site, but because they didn't have Sky Sports on the site, my husband watched a match here. He said the drink he had was good value and he was able to watch the game with no interruptions!

“An interesting visit”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Lovely pub however we had an interesting visit. The starter of soup was amazing in fact one of the best starters we have ever had. However I ordered the pie for my mains and when it came out it was like someone had been playing around with my food. It was like an open pie but that was not how described. When we complained which was straight after it was served I was told I was lying and that it came out of the kitchen as a proper pie. Really bad customer service and I didn't end up eating a meal there. I'm sure this was a one off and I was told the waitress was new.

“A place to contemplate”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Called in here or a couple of beers.. You can tell a lot from a business's approach to their toilets.
The male toilets are approached from the main bar through the external smoking area. As you enter the WC there is a single sit down trap to the left. This is tastefully decorated with white tiles and was very clean, apart from the corners which could do with a scraper to bring the loo area back to pristine condition. The prominence of this trap to the external smoking area may cause problems for anyone with an explosive bowel condition , which may be heard by anyone smoking outside.
The urinal area consists of three urinals and two wash hand basins. This area is spotlessly clean, finished in white tiles with a cheeky little blue and turquoise infill. The whole area is fragranced with air fresheners dispensing a relaxing bergamot aroma. There is also a condom machine which dispenses plain rubbers at two for a pound, With a nearby local holiday facility with a capacity of nearly 8000 persons in the summer , perhaps a selection of flavours, colours, and the all time favourite - ribbed ticklers, would be better.
The copper pipework could be burnished with a little Dura Glit, to bring this oasis up to 10/10.

All in all ,these toilets are among the best in Newquay. Get in and have a drink, and enjoy
