“Top House!!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Brilliant, food and beer are really good, staff are very friendly even the waiter who admitted using dog shampoo on his hair (poor boy)

The price for food and beer is very reasonable, because of this we went back every day for pint!

We spent just 2 nights at The Top House. It was a late booking, and I think we were lucky to find a vacancy in August. We didn't know what to expect, as we have sometimes been a little disappointed when staying in pubs. We certainly didn't need to be apprehensive. It was superb. Our room (Housel) was next to the beer garden, but that wasn't a problem. it wasn't noisy, and in any event the beer garden is closed at 10 p.m. for the comfort of the residents. The room was a good size, as was the ensuite. It was great to park the car and not move it again until the morning of our departure. The staff were friendly and helpful in every way, from the moment we arrived to the time of our departure. We ate in the restaurant both evenings. The food was amazing (particularly the fish dishes) The selection of beers and wines far exceeded my expectations. I didn't want to leave, and will definitely return for another stay; hopefully for more than 2 days next time.

Kynance was our room in the back corner of the hotel and had excellent view over the village and towards the lighthouse and coast. Room was of a great size and seemed newly renovated as was the ensuite size and cleanliness. Friendly staff wanted to help in every way from carrying case to room to drinks at the bar and suggestions for dinner. All food was from locally sources producers and of excellent quality. Good selection of Real Ale beers to try. I would recommend the Top House in for food, drinks and to stay.

Room Tip: Top floor for the views, we had Kynance the room name. Window two sides.

We took our son and daughter for her Birthday. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. The food was great with a varied menu and good selection of wine. We will certainly visit again before we finish our holiday.

Only stayed for one night but it was really lovely. The room was very clean bright and had a great view of the sea. The food was amazing. Kynance cove is a must to visit. I look forward to staying again! Also all the staff are lovely.

This was the first time that we have stayed in a pub and did it as a 'last minute' thing having found the Top House on the internet the week before.

Do not be put off when you arrive outside - the pub has a 'weathered charm' on the outside and is a little dark on the inside (but the beer is good!).

Once you are taken through the door at the back of the bar to the accommodation, everything changes...

We had a large family room on the first floor, over looking the Pub patio. The room was enormous with a king size bed and two bunk beds and large bathroom with an excellent shower. The room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. There was also free Wi-Fi through the guest accommodation.

Although the windows in our room opened up over the patio and we slept with the windows opened; we couldn't hear any noise after 10.30pm.

We ate in the Restaurant one evening and dinner was really good. The breakfasts were excellent. All of the staff were attentive and very helpful.

From now on we won't just use a Pub for drinking and eating in - but staying in as well!

A great place to stay and ideally located for exploring The Lizard and surrounding area. Our room was bright, clean and very comfortable. access to the upper rooms is by stairs only and may not suit everyone. A separate access door is provided for those that want to come and go outside of the pub opening hours. The food we had was great as was the service at all times,the staff were also more than happy to provide secure storage for bicycles overnight.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms have a sea view.
