This wont be for everyone. The mead range isn't as wide as other meaderies plus the ambiance setting means you will be eating in very dim light. If you are into your med evil experiences then this is the place for you. Personally I'm not a big fan of theme restaurants but this meadery pulls it off. the atmosphere is... More

Tried to book a table to go for a meal here but NO RESERVATIONS are taken. One has to take pot luck in being seated for a meal (or indeed that there will be seats available...). Did go down and had a look and luckily we got in! :) Being an old cinema, the eating room is HUGE and full... More

This restaurant is a favourite with my girlfriends family and understandable why! Lovely food, excellent atmosphere, friendly staff and the fruit mead is very tasty as well! Thoroughly recommended but turn up 10-15 minutes early if you want to be sure to secure a table.

Well...first off...they dont take table reservations so never ever go here for birthday parties at the weekend. Not worth the risk of them being full. I went with a few people, three of us ordered half a coke and it came is various glasses. Mine came in a glass that they now serve mead in....so was not half a pint.... More

We have been enjoying delicious meals and mead at Newlyn Meadery for decades!!!! It is properly child friendly and has an absolutely brilliant atmosphere. It gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights during the summer season but even waiting for a table is a fun experience as it is like being in a medieval hall. The portions are big... More

I have been coming with my family to this restaurant for years. Just love the atmosphere, dimmed lights, heavy furniture, shields, banners, colours, food eaten with your hands (all in the rough) and the staff in costume. Like a Henry VIII feast without the king! Great place to bring youngsters and oldies all at same time. Staff are just so... More
