We chose the Old School restaurant in port Isaac because of it's quaint period charm. We sat in the bar area on a small table and ordered some food and drinks. The food was not cheap with our fish pies being over £12 each and they came with a small basic salad and some plain boiled veg. Our daughter had a cheese and tomato pizza again pricey at over £7.
The food arrived in good time about 28 minutes and was hot and fresh. The fish pies were heavy on the potato topping and low on the fish. For that kind of money I'd expect a lot better quality of the content especially as this is a famous fishing village. The pies tasted ok, the veg tasted ok, it was ok! The child's pizza was freshly made at least and not a reheated frozen cheap pizza but it was only the size of a tea cup saucer and to my mind over priced. All I all the service was good, the surroundings quaint without being luxurious and the food was ok taste wise but appalling value for money. A lot of the Port Isaac eateries rely on the fact that they have a captive audience and the Old School House clearly packs people in and capitalises on their earning potential with high prices for average pub food. Personally I think it is worth going further afield to the fantastic st, Kew up the road and spend the money on the petrol to get there rather than settle for what the Old School House offers.
