Typical Pub Really

Visited The Central Inn for dinner before the night ahead. To be honest it is like any other chain of pub but with more interesting choices of food. The staff are friendly and attentive. They have the usual menu as well as the specials menu, 2-4-1 menu and a deal on 2 steak and wine which is a good... read more

Drove our daughter home to Newquay on Sunday as she missed her train from Plymouth so we decided to stop in the Central for lunch and a beer before heading back. The Guinness was absolutely spot on as was the very nice NZ Sauvignon Blanc. We shared a platter of Mediterranean food and also the haddock goujons and it was... More

Visit the central inn often with my partner. We like the laid back atmosphere, and enjoy the diverse menu. The food is a good quality and very reasonable when ordering of the 'two for one' menu. Definitely worth a visit, however can get quite busy during peak season so would recommend going earlier rather than later.

Great location for a few beers and a burger at lunch time, inside or outside seating, service is good and food is of a decent standard. Good choice of beers and wines and hot drinks etc. Worth a visit.

Although generally wary of pub-style food, we ended up at the Central and enjoyed some amazing food and service. Steaks cooking at the table on lava rocks were both really tasty and fun to eat, while... More

Wonderful zen style restaurant area bit still a very fun loving pub with a wide variety of cocktails and menu of shots to choose... More
