I have stayed at this hotel (several years ago, under different management) but decided to treat us this time (and will be reviewing that hotel shortly).
Having had fond memories of the food here, we decided to visit for a meal one evening. Yes, the pub is strongly oriented towards locals but having visited regularly some years ago I knew some of them. Perhaps it was my confidence and friendliness towards the bar staff that guaranteed a good experience.
And where else can you dine with murals from the local artist the late great Mick Cawston decorating the walls?
Himself's beer battered cod was excellent, the chips were plentiful and he had a nicely dressed salad. My cottage pie was well flavoured (perhaps a little heavy on the pepper) and volcanically hot! I had a good selection of vegetables and a good sized jug of gravy.
All rounded off with an excellent St Austell beer pulled from the wood: Proper Job.
