Had a lovely meal here with my boyfriend, both really enjoyed it. Was busy and the service was great. Food was delicious and they had a good selection to choose from, would definitely go back! The French manager/owner was also really friendly, good atmosphere :)

We ate here two nights when we stayed, once in the restaurant from the a la carte and once from the pub snack/ tapas menu. For the restaurant I would say that the food was mixed, some parts excellent and worthy of the price and some less so. The starters dressed crab and salted cod balls (bacalao - I think!)... More

Again before going on our holidays found this via trip advisor. What luck. The food was delicious. The owner/manager? had a brilliant sense of humour and really made our night.

We used to eat regularly at the Coldstreamer and enjoyed the food very much. Over the past year standards have slipped and the food standard has dropped so we don't go anymore.

I believe there is a new chef since our last visit but you honestly wouldn't be able to tell. I had the same meal two consecutive nights as it was so good! Hake cooked beautifully on crushed new potatoes. Couldn't fault a thing with the meal. My boyfriend enjoyed his meals both nights aswell (he had something different both nights).... More

Well above-average food. Well-cooked fish, and they went to some trouble to provide me with a dairy-free dessert. I definitely recommend this pub/restaurant.

This is the local establishment for friends in Gulval. We soon learned why it was their favourite. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Tables are not pushed close. The staff have a great sense of humour while providing excellent service. And the food - each of us had a different dish with a bouquet in each case. Head up the... More

Staying for a week's break in Gulval, my husband and I discovered The Coldstreamer and popped in for an evening meal, we were in time for the 'early bird' option, ordering before 6.30pm, so we got 3 courses for the price of 2, brilliant timing :) We both had the soup, celariac and saffron, which we both decided was delicious....
