We visited this on the last evening of our holiday as a bit of a treat hoping for something a little better than pub food and weren't disappointed. We were very lucky to get a table just after 6pm having not booked, would strongly recommend booking if you want to visit. We paid about £30 a head for one drink and two courses which we felt was good value.

I know food is a bit horses for courses sometimes, and you are lucky if you find somewhere that cooks things the way you like them and a roast is probably the most tricky of meals, but this one was just perfect for us. The meats were tasty and cooked beautifully, the vegetables were a good range and again cooked perfectly, not sloppy not too crunchy, the gravy was delicious, the portions were gigantic (even the kids) the stuffing and yorkshire puddings were gorgeous, and I'm hungry thinking about it now! I don't think any of us ate anything for the rest of the day and we had that at 12pm! The price was very reasonable and the service was personal and really good too.

If you want a carvery on a Sunday near Boscastle, you really must come here.
