“clean friendly place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Although we did not stay as we decided else where we called in for a drink and had a look around. We would book in next time. Clean friendly and a character pub. The down fall is no parking. Although there is a car park near.

Room Tip: did not stay this time.

We rang the dock as a last minute booking to get away from a disaster of a b & b in Tintagel. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast in your bedroom makes you feel like royalty and the rooms have all been re-vamped with the front two having excellent views of the mount. This was our second visit to the Dock and we were even more impressed than the first. We shall return asap.

Room Tip: Front 2 rooms have excellent views of the mount

Stayed for one night in June en route to the Scilly Isles. A lucky find ! We enjoyed a very pleasant evening in the pub where we were lucky enough to enjoy the music 'jam' session - which was great. All was quiet by about midnight and we had a good night's rest in a comfy bed. Staff were friendly, helpful, and we had a bright, sunny room overlooking the harbour. The room and bathroom, which had recently been refurbished, were bright and modern. The delicious breakfast was well presented and served in our room at a table in the bay window What a treat ! Will definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the harbour

took all three rooms for the family and were impressed by the friendliness of the staff, and the quality of the food and beer. Great view from the rooms on the front, enjoyed Jam Night although you could still pick up the sound from below it wasn't too bad. Breakfast in the rooms or downstairs, and really handy for the Scillonian

This is a very nice pub with a good atmosphere and great ales. It is also a good place to stay as long as you're not planning on go early to bed. The pub closes at 12 PM and though it's not very noisy, still you can hear the clients' voices and laughs from your room upstairs, specially when they get in or out of the building. Other than this minor nuisance, everything was OK. Our room was perfectly clean and so was the bathroom. Breakfast is served in the room and it was a very good one, though we found the table was a bit too small, requiring us to put the trays on the bed. Nevertheless, I wouldn't mind staying there again at all.

This is a great place to stay if you are, like we were, overnight prior to a boat to the Isles of Scilly.
They only have 3 rooms at present but if the other rooms were like ours then the standand is great.
The Dock Inn is basically a pub so they dont have a resturant as such, so a nice touch is that you have a full breakfast served to your room and ther is a proper table and chairs for the purpose.
