Came down to Penzance with the family for a week and discovered this fabulous inn who welcomed us and our two dogs; had some lovely food (would recommend the dressed crab). Vincent is friendly and great with the kids; enjoyed the experience so much that we made it our local for the whole week. Lovely chill out music too.

We went along with Vincent's sense of humour initially,when he told us if we chose the most boring dish on his menu, we'd only get paper napkins. We were served two of the same dishes, though we'd ordered two different ones. As there were no staff in sight for about 15 minutes, I eventually just ate mine. Our drinks didn't... More

Food lived up to the menu, all really tasty. It was all fresh food as well. The waiter had really good knowledge of their wines as well as the menu. Will visit again, and recommend to friends.

We stayed one night here which was our first night of a five night break visiting Cornwall. We got room 3 which I knew from reading previous reviews was great as we wouldn't be as disturbed by the church clock that is situated right opposite the pub. A lovely BIG room with a fantastic power shower. We ate in the... More

Not much to write home about. The food was OK, although the chicken liver parfait was not very nice. Fortunately there wasn't much of it. The pub doesn't have much atmosphere, and the menu isn't very inspired. The landlord and waiting staff were efficient and polite - friendly would be stretching it a bit. It wouldn't be top of my...

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.
