Found this great place just driving past, went in for the crab soup and must say it was one of the best soups I've ever had. The service was friendly and great with the kids while the food was just delightful.

Great traditional pub overlooking the harbour. Food freshly cooked and worth the price, no frills but full of flavour. The staff are very friendly and willing to help.

Excellent service and top notch food. The fisherman's pie was by far the very best I have eaten. It was plum full of fresh Newlyn crab, prawns and fresh tasty fish in a light creamy sauce. Fluffy pastry on top and amazing flavours. The ribs were cooked to perfection falling off the bone but tender and moist. The sauce was... More

Fab crab soup in a big ceramic farmhouse bowl,garlic bread with crushed garlic and butter. Even the jacket potato had a big knob of butter, no horrid little foil packets. Lovely puddings if you have room for one. This is a no pretence, traditional, unmodernised newlyn fisher mans pub, with great views and a courtyard garden, friendly and Cornish. Pip.

Glasses were sticky, whole place needs a good clean up, hygene does not appear to be a priority. No parking Round the back by the toilets where there was no hand drying facilities it looked even worse, did not bother with a food. Local council might like to check it out.

The folks giving this place 5 stars must love dirty saloons with a sickly, stale smell of slopped beer, grubby tables, battered decor and loud music. Not for us.

A bit off the tourist trail and a pub for locals the food was very good indeed - especially the prawn and crab salads. Food arrived promptly and not too expensive.

The food itself is worth a try, we were a little put off on arrival by the shabby pub exterior and bar area but we will definiTLY be returning again as the dinner we had here was good value for money and very tasty.
