Have the Liver

Just eaten at the Buccaneer. If you go and Liver is on the specials board trust me order it. The liver is cooked beautifully and the onion gravy is perfect. See you next time I'm down Steve. Bob

What a complete find of a place. Couldn't be better situated right on the front over looking the downs and surrounding area. Great picnic benches outside for sitting with a Carlsberg and great food. Warning is though can be a complete sun trap and you will burn. Excellent for chilling and so comfortable found it hard to move anywhere after.... More

I have been here twice for meals(nine in total) and I will continue to return. All staff are very nice and friendly and there is a good choice of food. The quality and large size of the meals was excellent. Good real ale makes it perfect. Well done Buccaneer!

This choice of a place to eat was a leap of faith on Mother’s Day for a last minute family get together. We’d never been there before but the Trip Advisor reviews were mostly very good so we decided to give it a go and were so glad that we did – we will definitely be back! We were welcomed... More

My sister and I took mother for the Sunday Roast on Mothers Day. The food was excellent. mother and I had the Roast Pork and my sister the Lamb Shank. We were given an extra portion of lovely "roast tatties" baked with dripping. A nice large piece of crispy crackling with the pork too. The Buccaneer Inn is the perfect... More

We've never been disappointed at a St Austell brewery pub and this was no exception. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and it was great to be able to get in out of the wind with our dog. My husband and I ordered a 'light lunch' of the 'Buc-dog' hot dog and a jacket potato. The food took a... More

We often frequent the buccaneer for food as we are never disappointed. Good value, great service and always hot! Also the other reason I love this pub so much as it has a great family atmosphere, is dog friendly and even though they accommodate the sports fans they don't tolerate bad language and rowdiness so that families and others alike...
