Fish and chips were excellent as was the steak, both meals beautifully presented. The vegetarian risotto was tasty but meagre in size. A little pricey however , with a disappointing lack of vegetarian options. Good, friendly service.

Friendly atmosphere, good beers and the food tasted good. BUT...the portions were tiny! Sister inlaw had a "king" prawn starter that she said tasted great but there we're only 4 prawns in a small dish! They we're more medium size prawns too. I went for the fish and chips which arrived on a slate, tin cup of oven chips (not... More

We toured Great Britain for six weeks this was one of the best places we stayed. Beautifully restored old historical hotel Room was large every thing was top quality. The host Derick was so hospitable giving us so much information on the local area even took us across the road to show us a pirates grave in the cemetery of... More

We will visit again but will book first . The food was pricey and more like an expensive restaurant but the portions were large and we couldn't fit... More

We stayed one night on our was to the Scilly Isles. It was a good choice, located at a small junction, opposite the old church in Gulval. The bar area is very comfortable with a good choice of local beers, served by Vincent who has a wicked sense of humour. The evening meal was excellent and the accommodation was very... More

We stayed for one night at The Coldstreamer before travelling over to the Isles of Scilly. We had dinner there on the evening we arrived and the food was excellent - as was the real ale. We had squid for starters which was beautifully cooked, as was the fish for main course. Our room was basic, but comfortable, and perfectly... More

Nice big rooms and clean. We were initially a little unsure about going through the bar and up to our rooms but actually it was okay. At night I could hear music from my room but I'm not sure where it was coming from - might have been the pub but it was difficult to tell. In the evening we... More

We stopped at this Pub “by accident” on our tour of Cornwall. What a place and what a staff. We were laughing from we entered the bar, until we left late in the evening. The bartender was really funny and it was apparent that many of the locals played along. The food was great and they had a wide range... More
