“Countryside pub with good food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Ate here today at lunchtime. Good variety of food, lots of tables to accommodate different sized parties and outside seating. Nice touch- blankets in case it's a bit chilly. Have been here several times before, would book if coming in the evening. Didn't know there were new owners but liked the menu-lots of typical pub meals but also several specials including fish and vegetarian and various desserts.

“Brilliant impromptu lunch”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We saw the signpost off the main road and decided to take pot luck - glad we did as this is a real gem, located between St Austell and Megavissey. Exciting and varied menu, staff who couldn't do enough for us, brilliant well cooked food. This pub delivers what so many aspire to. Please don't tell anyone - this is our secret !

“nice lunch in great surroundings”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

just had a lovely lunch, having telephoned prior to our visit to enquire about being both dog and coeliac friendliness responses eased any worries, We had a really nice bbq ribs and the special fish pie, both really tasty but very rich, decent sized portions which for our size of appetite was a bit too much but it will suit the majority.

reckon this will be a very busy pub during peak season and therefore would reccomend booking if you want to eat.

another nice local pub for us to visit. we will e returning.

may thanks
