Good fun, surprisingly tasty food

Visited with a group of 7- all first timers. We were advised to arrive early as they don't take bookings, so we turned up 15 minutes before opening and there was already a queue!

This place is just out and out relaxed dinning in a relaxed atmosphere. The food and the service is great, the mead wine excellent and the setting splendid. The staff dress up in very fitting outfits. Kids with love it, just tell them it's King Arthurs grand hall... The only downside is they are moving away from 100% wooden plates... More

The Meadery is a smashing place to visit and serves delicious chicken and chips. It really is well worth a visit with a lovely atmosphere.

Went to the Newlyn Meadery last night as a surprise treat from my Girlfriend. Needless to say, I felt a bit embarrassed to say to her that her ‘Cornish childhood restaurant’ was rubbish. I ordered smoked mackeral. Penzance is a harbour, so what I didn't expect was bland shop bought mackeral which wasn't even seasoned. Not even the good peppered... More

Took my kids here this week as it was 30 years ago my parents bought me. Chicken in the rough was small and expensive, KFC better. Fish bites were nice but salad bar had limited choice. Waitresses were very friendly as I remember and the whole restaurant was very very dark which adds to the atmosphere. Kidz enjoyed the experience... More
