Popped in for something to eat, couldn't sit in the bar due to the quiz which is fair enough so went into the dining room to be met by quite a few flies buzzing around, not ideal so opted to sit outside which was very nice. However when our food arrived it was placed on the table by the waiter... More

Found this pub by accident and what a find, staff very friendly and the bar lady certainly knew how to mix a proper G & T! The meal was first class, starter main and sweet, could not fault it. Not expensive either. Highly recommended!

The owner Ben and his mother are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. They treat you like one of their family /friends and it is so refreshing. The rooms were lovely and clean. Room 1 has a shower only but it is a lovely size decorated in purple so if you fancy a bath like I did... More

We live in the US but have ( now elderly) family in North Hill which is why we picked the inn as a base to stay during our last visit. We were very pleasantly surprised. We loved both rooms- very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable, with nice touches like robes and a tea tray. Pat and Robbie are welcoming hosts,... More

We took two rooms here for five nights and had an excellent stay. The rooms were tastefully decorated and presented to a high standard. The breakfast menu was extensive and certainly set us up well for a week touring Cornwall. The bar menu was good quality pub food at reasonable prices. Above all Pat and Robbie were excellent hosts and... More

I would be happy to recommend The Racehorse Inn to anyone looking for a home cooked, good quality meal. The food is excellent, in particular the Sunday roast which is as good as any mum could make! The pub welcomes dogs which makes it a great stop after a nice walk in the countryside and the staff are always welcoming... More

A very warm welcome as usual. Excellent food and nothing too much trouble for the staff. A typical country pub with service to match, wish we lived in the village, we could go there every night! So, if you're in the area, its a visit not to miss.
