What a fun and friendly place serving absolutely amazing food! definite compliments to the chef (or chefs!) Staff are all lovely and welcoming. Being out of town it isn't somewhere you would necessarily think to go but would definitely recommend a visit albeit for a drink or for some food. All in all a wonderful experience.

lovely welcoming pub/restaurant. Waiting staff could not have worked harder to accommodate our party of 11 ladies of a certain age - no mean feat but wonderful service! Food all came out together for our large party and everyone enjoyed their choice of meal. Very good prices too. Brilliant night out.

Group of 12 visited. Tables put together to allow for us all to sit together and laid out nicely. Staff very attentive, food served on time and on hot plates. All in all a lovely evening. We will be going again

We visited this public house last week for lunch and my parents had the ale pie and Spanish omelette which they both enjoyed very much and the portion sizes were very good. My daughter and I only had starters/lite bites - soup and sticky ribs and again both were delicious and good sized portions. We will definitely be going back... More

Food was very good, and very generous portions without losing any quality! If you go for the cheese platter be prepared that there's enough for 4 people to have as a cheese course (after dinner) or two for a lunch! Delicious though...

If anyone thinks, after reading recent Tripadvisor reviews, that I have shares in this pub/restaurant - I don't! Like those friends and family members I dine with, I'm a great fan of top-notch pub grub at prices which have you wondering if there's something you haven't been charged for. Add to this man-size portions, great hospitality, efficient service and a... More

Used this pub once as it was close to the caravan park we we're staying in at the small village of Heamoor. The pub is clean inside and the food is decent. We decided to go on Wednesday which is curry night. They have a few curries on the menu with different strengths from Korma to the Beast of Bodmin!... More

A warm welcome, pleasant staff, tasty lunch, huge choice of dishes, delicious desserts and a good cup of coffee to finish, it doesn't get much better than that!
