“looked very nice from the outside but the food and service were very poor”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

we stopped at this pub after seeing it on the way to bude as it looked very nice with a big play area for our son. we sat in the main restaurant and looked through a very limited menu. while we waited for food i took my son outside on to the play area which was advertised as being enclosed. the fence was broken as was most of the climbing equipment. the plastic slide had a hole in the bottom, which was very dangerous. when the food arrived we found the chips were not cooked, the gammon was chewy, mushrooms rubbery and the pasty was cold in the middle. not worth the £66 we were charged. they also got the bill wrong on the first attempt and it seemed a chore to correct it. in short bad food, too expensive and only two ales on.

This was our second visit to The Countryman Inn, this time we called in for Sunday lunch and were again very pleased with our meal. This is a truly rural pub with a local patronage that also strives to serve passing trade. It's easy to find, on the Bude road only a short distance north of Launceston and well worth a short diversion from the A30 if you are travelling into or out of Cornwall.
The food is locally produced and you can taste it too. Good quality local meat, with well prepared fresh vegetables cooked well and served in very pleasant surroundings by attentive staff. They have a decent selection of local beers and wines for you to enjoy in the bar, restaurant, games room or outside and plenty of space to park just next to the pub. If the weather is warm you can sit outside at one of the picnic tables and admire the beautiful Cornish landscape. All this is offered at very modest prices, it’s really very good value for money.

Room Tip: A hidden gem, you won't be dissapointed.

We stayed at the countryman Inn for 2 nights during a trip to cornwall, it is a great location with good ales and fab locally produced food. Since the double room was booked we stayed in the family room which is quite big with a double and bunk beds. TV, very generous quantity of tea / coffee /chocolate and nice toiletries. The bathroom was large with bath tub and shower, nice and clean.
We ate in the bar both nights and found the food of exceptional quality, the menu has plenty of specials available and staff were helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was huge and lovely, full english with bacon and sausage from the family farm's black pigs nearby.
All in all a lovely place to stay a friendly welcoming place, would recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We are a large friendly pub just outside Launceston, on the road to the lovely coastal town of Bude. We have 5 cosy, en-suite letting rooms. 1 Single, 1 Twin, 2 Doubles and a Family room with a double bed and bunk beds (to sleep 4). We have a very large, free car park and a safely enclosed childrens park on our large playing field next to the pub/car park. We have plenty of outside seating either on the edge of the playing field and in the childrens park, or in our patio area leading out from our function room. We serve a delicious standard menu which varies slightly from day to day with our freshly made soups, fish cakes, curries and pies of the day. We also have a weekly specials board containing, when available, some very local meats but always something temptingly tasty. There is plenty to do nearby at the Otter Sanctuary or just a short car journey away in Launceston, Bude or many of the other nearby beautiful coastal towns and villages. We are also 15 minutes away from the A30 that will lead to to other larger attractions such as the eden project. ... more   less
