We were able to get a table outside on the porch and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Just back from a great ten night break in Cornwall! Whilst there we visited The Old School House for lunch. I had crab salad and my husband had a crab baguette plus cheesy chips. I will say that the food was marvellous and plentiful - well worth the money and my husband could not finish all his meal ( which... More

The Old School Hotel is excellent with a good English Breakfast. My Tip is have a bit of cash with you because there is no Bank ! Yes you can use debit/credit cards but the only place to get cash is up at the Co-Op provided you some thing in the shop ! There was a Cash Machine outside but... More

On the positive side, the staff were lovely - very attentive and happy. Plus it's really nice to have tablecloths on the tables (so many don't seem to these days). The dining hall is very much as you would imagine from an old school and that was quite fun. However, the food was very disappointing. A simple menu; much as... More

We booked this on an extension to our vacation and could not have been more pleased. The accommodations were all individual and unique. Every morning we enjoyed a wonderful English breakfast and the staff was helpful, polite and very appeasing. If traveling in the area again, I would have no hesitations to ring them up. I would love to experience... More

We had quite a good dinner at the restaurant at The Old School House while we were staying in Port Isaac. The food here is not gourmet but good quality pub food. We had the fish pie which was good. They also have wifi which was why we went there in the first place as we were wanting to keep... More

As a non dairy eater the meal choice was limited for me but it was a treat to have the beer battered cod, with copious chips. I had to order vegetables separately, I would have prefered less chips and vegetables or peas included with the meal. We chose this retaurant for my birthday meal as our planned venue (The Mote)...

We opted to go back to school as the nearby Mote was shut for a staff party. The interior was bright and the decor tasteful. Although busy on arrival we were accommodated quickly and shown to our table by a helpful waiter. Our waitress was very nice and despite being stretched coped very well. Our meal of fish pie was...

Myself and my boyfriend decided to go for breakfast here during our stay in Port Isaac. The weather was lovely so we sat outside on the decking in the sunshine. The service was great, waitress was very friendly. The food didn't take long to arrive, it was piping hot, great portion sizes and all very tasty, we both loved it!... More
