“Short Break”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

We arrived on Friday night for a two night stay after an awful drive down the M5 to find friendly staff and lovely bijou and compact double room, who were very accomodating. Lovely freshly cooked breakfast in the mornings and we ate in the restaurant on Saturday evening. Thank you to Richard and Tanya. We will definitely return.

Booked ovnight stay on route for Cornwall, glad it was only one night! Booked and paid for weeks in advance, no record of reservation when at last we got in, no one warned us the pub closed at 2.30 to reopen at 6. Kicked our heals for a couple of hours. Room poor, empty soap container (one) not too clean, very ordinary pub food with disinterested service First and last time.

Room Tip: Try another pub

We ate here once this summer. We ordered lasagna and chicken curry. Both seemed warmed up in the microwave. The lasagna was hardly cooked and very hard. The curry seemed to be canned food. This was the worst dinner we have had for years in England, and we visit every year. Normally the foor is quite acceptable or even good, but the countryman inn gets our wordt food of the year 2012 award, if not of the decade or even the century!

6 of us dined here yesterday and we were pleasantly surprised. On arriving the outside of the establishment was clean and well presented; offering a wide grassy area for dogs and diners as well as a playing area for younger children. When we entered there were only a few locals enjoying the local ales and the peaceful environment. There was an extensive range of food on offer a wide variety of freshly produced local produce cooked to order. Portions were good size and food was well valued. The chips were all freshly prepared and everybody enjoyed their meal thoroughly. Don't come here expecting gourmet food because it is a pub rather than a restaurant but the food is very nice, well cooked and freshly prepared and not over-priced. The only downside was there was only one person serving due to the low count of customers but it wasn't a ridiculously long wait. Really enjoyed our visit here :) Would definitely visit again.

Outside looks like it's going to be a nice diner, very country orientated. No atmosphere inside though and also no Lime for a Lager and Lime (basic pub stuff you would think).
Ordered food, Starters were very nice, then came the mains. Steak and curry were very nice, but hold off if ordering chicken. the Chicken was very dry and overcooked. We did comment to the waitress that it would be better to include some sauce to the chicken dishes (we had 2 different ones) to maybe sort this out for future, but for now very dry and somewhat bland.
The Ladies toilets are apparently still the same as previous comments, and in the gents you had to hold the toilet seat up with one hand to avoid the sort of complaints the wife dishes out.
Decor in the whole place requires updating and is very tired at present.
As a last insult 2 of our party ordered a 3 scoop ice cream desert with a selection of 2 scoops of one flavour with 1 scoop of something else (normal in most places). When the bill came we had been charged for 3 deserts, because we had ordered a scoop of a different flavour and not all the same one. Had the ice cream been a plastic tub with pre concieved flavours, we could have accepted, but as this was individual scoops, it was not on. Yes we did get a refund on the 1 desert we didn't have in the end.
Needless to say we will not be dining there again, unless there is significant improvement.

Last visited this pub 7 years ago. It was busy and we had a good meal so decided to try it again for our wedding anniversary. While the food we had was of a good standard the interior of the pub left a lot to be desired. The walls were shabby, the door to the toilets was loose, the ladies loo was revolting. I had to go and ask someone to clean it. The flush handle on the toilet came off when my son flushed - I had to put it back on. No hot or cold markers on the taps - not good when with a young child. Water pressure so low a mere dribble came out of the taps. Back in the restaurant my son dropped a fork on the floor and when I picked it up I put my hand in a giant cobweb! The waitress was friendly but too hasty, removing plates before we had all finished. Shame really as we enjoyed the meal itself. Just feel like this pub could be so much better than it is with some tlc and a good clean.

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
