Popped in on a cold Friday mid-morning with my husband and sat by the gorgeous log burner with an amazing hot chocolate. The bar was almost empty, Polzeath mid-week in January usually is, but the few people who were in there created a lovely welcoming atmosphere. Can't wait to go there and try the food.

I chose catch of the day - the best battered cod I have ever eaten - cooked and served to perfection. I also took the local ale - Doombar on... More

Met friends here on our way home. We all had breakfast, from a simple bacon and sausage roll to eggs Benedict! Have to say the quality and taste were superb, and on a sunny morning the view was brilliant. Will be back lunch next time we are in Cornwall.

Excellent mussels, very fresh and well cooked with a good onion and garlic creamy sauce. Also we had a sharing portion of calamari which was crisp and well cooked not rubbery. Clean tables and friendly service, well... More

After quite a tough 9 mile walk from Port Isaac, this was a very welcome stop for a late lunch. Few customers so service was quick and efficient. Excellent BLT ciabatta and very good skinny chips. Smoked mackerel and roasted beet root salad also very tasty and attractively presented. Excellent Tribute on tap. Good coffee. Nice staff. Recommended.
