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

We had heard about the Coldstreamer from friends and decided to stay when delayed in our travel. It is a short way off the main A30, down a winding lane in the village of Gulval. It was a last minute booking and at a quiet time of the year, so I got a good deal on the room with breakfast,... More

The Coldstreamer is a great place to stay. It's near Penzance, but it's actual location at Gulval makes it seem like it is in a small English village off the beaten track. Meals are excellent - we chose from the tapas menu (there were more substantial options available too) and were impressed with the quality and originality of the food.... More

Four of us booked for dinner last Friday evening, 2 locals and myself and another visiting our friends in Penzance. At first I had reservations as the last time I ate here, a couple of years previously, it was not good. I need not have had any reservations, as this time the food was excellent. We skipped starters and went... More

We went with friends who live locally to this great pub/inn. We had delicious smoked prawns with mayonnaise. Freshly baked Hake with cabbage mash and thinly sliced lamb's liver and mash. One of us had a haloumi burger which was very good. Affogato and creme brulee to finish. All the food was good, but our visit was made so entertaining... More

We have eaten here a few times and would definitely go back - all our meals have been very tasty, especially the fish dishes. The service is friendly and there is a good atmosphere as it is also a pub. It is certainly above average and has a chef who maintains consistently high standards.
