“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

We came across the Finnygook Inn whilst driving around the Cornish Coast to Portwinkle and decided to have a Sunday Lunch there. Although unassuming from the outside we were very pleasantly surprised by the interior which was spacious, light and a wood burning stove which gave it a relaxed atmosphere.
The Menu selection was excellent and after making our choices sat down to soak in the atmosphere.
We had to wait for a while for our meals but it was well worth it - not only were the portions generous but the quality was first class with service to match. Although we tend to be sceptical if a generous sized meal is served we could not find fault (not that we were trying to).
We think that the Finnygook is suitable for couples and familes and we are looking forward to a return visit and would not hesitate to recommend to our friends and visitors.

“Friendly pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Deceptively large pub, though not particularly busy the day we visited, however, that did not take away from the atmosphere of the place. Quaint, with old photos and background music from an old gramophone playing and old books in bookshelves. The waitress/barmaid who was on duty was delightful and charming, unhurried and pleasant. Orders taken and food delivered in timely manner. Nice food from set menu £9.99 for two courses. (We could.t manage the deserts unfortunately). Certainly a place to revisit when in the area.

“Simply superb! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

We have visited here many times and it has to be one of our favourite, if not the best pubs about ! The food is of a high standard especially as there is such a selection in the menu, the portions are very generous and there is an additional 'specials board' also, all Very competitively priced. They have curry nights during the week, around £8.00 for a lovely curry and a pint... Bargain and delicious curry!
The staff are very helpful and always have a smile.
The pub is situated a short distance from portwrinkle beach making it a perfect place to stop off on the way home from a stroll along the beach!
During the winter months there is an open fire to warm up next to with a nice pint of Korev (a Cornish lager which is a personal favourite) with a nice packet of Burt's crisps. During the summer months there is a lovely beer garden area situated to the rear, perfect place to enjoy a nice ice cold cider!
The funnygook benefits from absolutely beautiful views over the estuary and river.
I would most certainly recommend you visit the finnygook and see for yourself!

We only drank here, as planned to eat on the Monday evening not realising they closed on Mondays during the winter. Really liked the pub though, good atmosphere and friendly staff.
