I stayed for two nights at the Eliot arms, my room was very clean, as was the pub/ restaurant. The lighting created a lovely atmosphere. The exterior is idyllic especially on such sunny days... Lucky they had plenty of ice :). The staff are very friendly especially the 19yr old bar maid who I found very witty. All the staff... More

We had really nice food. I had an excellent steak and ale pie and my daughter had excellent sausage and mash. Good value too at £20 for two meals and two lemonades. Under new management, this bodes well for the future.

Stopped in as family were staying nearby. Lovely building. Good English food with generous portions. Fairly priced and bubbly, friendly Landlady. I had sausage and mash with onion gravey. The sausages were from Paul Bray's the butcher at Tideford. The veg seaonal and cooked just right. Really enjoyed it and will be going again.

Recently under new ownership. Had Sunday lunch and found a very warm welcome and a delicious plateful of roast beef and vegetables. The service was attentive, the atmosphere cosy and the price reasonable. We couldn't fault it.

We were staying in the Old Luggage Van for the week and came here for a Sunday lunch. Choice of 2 meats. It was very nice, service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We would recommend.

Food was absolutly disgusting, ordered Lasagne it was nothing like a lasagne it was layers of dry pasta and a plain mince filling no tomato or white sauce. Very disapointed :( Place was very dark and a little chilly had to leave coat on whilst eating and im normally a very warm person.

Static menu and specials board each time we come here. We had two overcooked steaks and overcooked vegetables. The waitress wasn't helpful and retorted.."I can see blood coming out of it." We will come for a drink again but no longer food. What a shame.

We booked a table a week in advance as recommende by others but whether it was because it was a Monday night or whether it was because schools had gone back we found ourselves to be the only diners. Service and quality of food was very good. The waiter attended to all our needs and the chef came out to... More

Thank you for your review. We do get a bit quieter in October, and start to get busier towards the end of November. We get extremely busy during the summer Months and bookings are advisable More

There were 7 of us ranging from 9-81 years old. Having booked the table and arrived at the specified time we then waited for nearly 20 minutes for our order to be... More

So sorry that you were disappointed with your meal. You could have told a member of staff , who would have told our Chef who could have cooked you fresh meals. You say you had to wait 20 mins, but that is the time you were told you would have to wait as we cook everything from fresh. We are... More
