Great to sit out in the garden area- nice views. Cool cave area inside the pub. More Expensive beer but it is more restaurant than pub

We are frequent visitors to the Mount Edgcumbe and cannot fault the service and food on every occasion. Staff are always welcoming and friendly, the food is tasty and the surroundings are a pleasure to be in. The garden is the perfect place to sit and relax on a sunny afternoon. Well done to the team, we will see you... More

We had heard many good reports of the Mount Edgecombe. First impression on arrival was good although parking seemed a bit limited and cramped. Unfortunately the evening deteriorated from there. We had checked the menu on their web site and had a rough idea what we might have, none of these things were available. We were told they had changed... More

Business lunch for two - great sunny day, food not bad. However - Be very wary of the young waitresses attitudes.

My friends and I went to this restaurant as a pre wedding celebration, there were 20 of us! The restaurant served us to a high standard through the evening, we had 20 steaks all cooked perfectly which is very impressive. The staff were very friendly and went that extra mile for us. When the weather is lovely is great place... More

Whist the bar and waiting staff were very friendly and efficient, the manager really does need to smile more. He was positively grumpy and unfriendly. I was very abruptly told to move to another side of the bar when I went to order drinks for dinner. I observed that he was like this with all the clientele and staff. The... More

My partner and I had a mid week evening meal at the Edgcumbe. This was our 2nd visit and didn't fail to impress us just as much as our first visit. The bar has excellent ales in stock including guest ales that the barman said are changed regularly. The menu, whilst not huge catered for all tastes and we were... More

I booked The Mount Edgcumbe for a Sunday lunch family gathering. Several friendly emails were exchanged confirming there would be 15 adults and 4 children. I paid the deposit and confirmed the menu choices beforehand, and was advised that it was not necessary to pre-book the menu for the children. On the day, when it was time for us to... More
