Good range of wholesome tasty pub food with selection of fresh vegetables. Allowed to bring our well behaved dog in too. As it was a hot day this was very welcome, didn't want to leave her in the car. Staff friendly, liked the ambience of this pub.

I think you have reviewed the wrong pub! The Buccaneer has undergone a full re-decoration to the bar and lounge over the last few years and is now one of the better presented traditional pubs in Torbay. We take great pride in ensuring that our tables are cleared and cleaned as soon as is practically possible after they are vacated... More

We had our dinner at the Buccaneer after trying to get fish and chips elsewhere. The staff were friendly and the prices were reasonable. My husband and I both had the burgers which were delicious, proper homemade beef burgers. I would definitely reccommend!

We have never stayed at the hotel itself as we live close by but always choose this place to have a relaxing drink and meal after a walk along the front. It has lovely sea views and a great friendly atmosphere. We wish there were a few more sofas scattered around the place, but overall it has a comfortable feel.... More

Very good 'real ales' St Austell HSD the best. The food is very good and reasonably priced but not 'fancy'. Good place to eat and or drink.
