Went for the first time in2 years last week. Used to be excellent when Barry was the landlord, with excellent home cooked food. Sadly there has been a change of ownership and the food is now basic pub fare, freezer to deep fat fryer only. Such a shame as it used to be so good.

Had a great value meal here only one week after the new owner took over. 10oz sirloin steak, cooked to perfection, home made chips, home made onion rings, corn on the cob, all for £13!!!!! Fantastic real ale, welcoming staff and a real pub atmosphere. Look out for their speciality food nights, beer festival and Sunday roasts. Cannot speak too... More

Rooms are basic and miss essentials like cupboards and drawers although they do have a sink! There are 2 shared shower rooms. There is no housekeeping... More

Thank goodness for GPS! The pub is tucked away down extremely narrow fishing-village lanes, but has a stunning view over Plymouth Sound. A warm welcome from the hosts and their lovely dog in this character-filled old pub. Staff were all really friendly and obliging and breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We were surprised to find there was no car parking... More
