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

We visited The Meadery for an evening meal during our stay in Newlyn. My immediate reaction was 'hey what a cool, interesting place' as it's a converted 1920s cinema but decorated out like a medieval-cum-Bavarian restaurant. It was busy and obviously very popular with large family groups. The good part of the menu is that it does 'small' and 'large'... More

We visited recently as we'd seen The Meadery by the side of the road and had read reviews. We arrived just after 6pm and the place was already half full. we were warmly greeted downstairs and also upstairs by the staff and we could pick our own table. The starters were huge, I had scampi and there were enough for... More

The kids loved this place. It has atmosphere, old building, dark inside. The food is good value compared to other places but it did feel a bit rushed.

We decided to eat heard as i was close to our campsite and opted to go for close to opening due to the kids and thought it may be a little quieter! How wrong were we, judging by how busy and bustling it was within the first half hour of opening it was clear to see how this place has... More

In Cornwall on a family holiday and were recommended to try a meadery... and we're so glad we did!! Don't know if all meaderys are the same but this one in Newlyn was just fantastic! Myself, my husband and four children really enjoyed our chicken in the rough! Great value too for kids drinks- only 55p for an orange juice!!... More

We spent the evening with family including two small children. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food is rustic but very tasteful and there is plenty of it. The meadery like many is dimly lit which creates a very relaxing atmosphere. Great place for adults and children alike. Will definitely be visiting again.
