“What a cracking pub”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

What a fantastic Saturday lunchtime treat to eat and drink at this pub. The staff were very welcoming and friendly as well as professional. They clearly enjoyed their jobs. The choice of beer (real ale) as well as lager was impressive I would recommend "Proper Beer" from St Austell brewery - magnificent. The food was well priced, not cheap but good value and very tasty. Try the treacle cured salmon for something a little different.

We'll be back!

“Only the management has changed.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

The place has had a revamp but there is still insufficient staff on bar duty, plus visitors beware the rude locals who insist they are first to be served.
The food is a vast improvement from the last time I tried to eat there, this time they got it right, again thought insufficient staff 'waiting' especially for a Bank Holiday weekend, having been advised that a group of 30 was due to arrive. One waiter very efficient but hard pressed.

“Just the job”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Visited at lunchtime for a business meeting with food, was a little hesitant due to some of the negative reviews. However we found the staff to be friendly and the service was quick. The food was hot, nice and good value. We would be happy to return.

“What is this I am trying to eat”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We, my wife and I, called here as a result of not getting into The Nook. What a mistake. It was certainly quaint, in a dusty and old furniture way, dimly lit and not pleasant at all. I ordered gammon with egg, pineapple and chips and my wife ordered some kind of Southern fried chicken with salad and dip. My chips were cold the egg was hard and the pineapple was raw and as for the gammon well, what do I say, cold, like rubber and tasted foul. I complained to the manager and he just said " you can have your money back " which I did. My wife I'd not aether meal as the chicken was so over cooked that it was hard and the salad and dip were not pleasant at all. We would never, ever, go back.
