A really genuine place with excellent food, well presented and at a good price for what you're getting. Nice beer too, in a proper pub with a good selection of well kept ales and lagers (if you like your beer to be bland). For me there was just the right amount of choice from a really balanced meat/fish menu and... More

Went to this restaurant yesterday with family to celebrate my birthday and was very disappointed. As a vegetarian, there was no choice, only one option - Risotto which one of us had but came in the the most meagre portion. For £12,50 it was a tiny portion. I had a starter for my main as I did not want the... More

Great food - six of the seven of us had hake, which came in a broth which was so good one of our party wanted a spoon to finish it. The desserts were superb: chocolate parfait, lemon tart with elderflower meringue and raspberry curd with Caramac crumbs and cinnamon doughnuts. Cheeseboard also excellent. Service efficient and French gentleman behind bar... More

We are local and usually love the coldstreamer and often pop in for drinks. Tonight we were appalled though by tiny portion sizes. We are not the sort of people to complain but 4 tiny prawns for a fiver served on a plate smaller than a saucer with no garnish and then fish and chips main for £12 with the... More

Went there for a quick early supper. Owner very obliging but you could misinterpret his dry sense of humour for being unfriendly. Pub is a camra specialist so there were some great beers on tap. My wife had a crab scotch egg. The egg inside was cooked just runny, as it supposed to be. I had an excellent burger.

We were visiting friends closely, and booked on the recommendation of a neighbour. The lunch was excellent, and later in the afternoon a superb blues band performed. I only wish we'd had more time to stay & listen. Well worth a visit; we'll certainly be going back.

While spending my birthday weekend in Gulval, my partner took me to The Coldstreamer for my birthday dinner. We were seated in a cosy alcove at the back of the restaurant. The service was lovely and the food good. The menu appears to offer quite a bit of a French/Asian fusion, without being overly fancy. However, there is still probably... More
