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

This place looks like an old country pub but when you sit down to eat you feel like you're eating at a high end restaurant! The food here is absolutely stunning and the service is actually even better. The French waiter in particular makes the whole even so special!!!

Friendly local with a nice atmosphere in the evening. Good size room, decent shower and the breakfast was very nice. Good value for money would recommend to friends and family. Would happily come back if ever passing through the area again in future.

We stayed here two nights and then one night either side of a five-day trip to the Isles of Scilly. The warmth of our welcome and the comfortable, well-equipped bedroom were a delight.. The pub is a proper local with an array of real ales and cider and an imaginative and sensibly-priced menu. Try the brisket with mash and kale,... More
