Warm and Welcoming

A warm, clean and welcoming pub with friendly bar staff. There are small seating areas and warm fires burning. The pub serves local brews, coffee and excellent food. There is a lovely outside seating area (small with four tables) with wonderful views of the harbour.

Great pub very nice food. Nice warm open fires makes it nice and cosy and they are dog friendly. For some strange reason (probably some kind of Wizardry) the Tribute tastes better than anywhere else I have had it!

What a cracking pub. Right on the quay side with a small balcony to drink and look down on the harbour and lots of seating and tables in the pub and for the winter months a number of roaring fires. I suspect in the summer it is packed but when we went, in January, it was a very pleasant pub.... More

A trip to Port Isaac in January, cold and damp and breath-taking. What better a place to find a table with family. Order drinks and "5" Cod and Chips with mushy peas. The batter on the fish is so crisp its brittle. Go on treat yourself, you wont be disappointed.

A pleasant pub with nice beers (St Austell), the staff were friendly and even helped us dry our childrens socks on the fire! A warm welcoming place on a cold January.

We spent two evenings in this pub and both times the food was excellent as was the service by the very lovely staff. Excellent pint of Tribute beer. Friendly people made our time here special.
