First of all I didn't stay at this hotel so its is based on the food and nothing else. Both myself and wife dropped in here for a dinner burger and chips for my wife and fish and chips for myself. The burger looked uncooked in the centre and when we asked we was told that it was paprika in... More

My partner and I wanted a relaxing location to explore Cornwall, stay in good accommodation and have a local pub! We researched extensively and found this beautiful inn. We booked into Pentreath, but after a couple of nights swapped rooms to Polpeor. Both rooms were beautiful, warm, comfortable (beds lovely) with identical bathrooms. We only moved rooms for the extra... More

Today we visited The Lizard. Firstly we found the public toilets closed between October and Easter. However, for a small donation to charity the pub came up trumps. After a short discussion my husband and I returned for lunch. The tables were clean, the service was exceptional, there was a lovely coal and log fire burning. We chose from the... More

We were looking for a peaceful retreat for a few days after a conference and before heading to the north west coast of Cornwall and beyond with our family. The Top House provided everything we wanted. Nice old pub (Australians love English pubs); large, comfortable and clean room ((Polbream on the first floor); easy access to walks, views etc; pub...

We visited the pub whilst on an overnight stay at a local hotel, at around 3pm on a Saturday afternoon (19-10). It was a brief visit for a drink as we were searching out a venue for our evening meal later that day. On arrival it was pretty much empty and went straight to the bar. My wife asked for... More

We stayed in 'Kynance' - a room on the second floor, the room was beautiful, spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed with good linen,good and versatile lighting and furniture, the only slight disappointment being the pillows which were a bit flat and hard, the sea view was a dual aspect very clear sea view even though the marketing said...

Thank you so much for your lovely review.

We just returned from a 4 night stay at Lizard. We ate dinner at The Top House 3 nights in row. We loved it. All the food was delicious (we will never forget Proper Job beer and the strawberry meringue). We also loved our waitress. Thanks for making our evenings so pleasant after our many hours of hiking.
