Huge portions!

Had a ploughman a lunch and it was enough for 2! Was very tasty and very fair price. But noisey but also family friendly I think.

Don't expect gastro pub food here but expect big portions.A nice local pub to pop in for a good range of local ales and a good menu of all the usual favourites you normally find on a pub menu.A great place for families with younger children who need feeding.Well worth mixing it with the locals in the Harbourside Inn for...

Visited this pub for a late lunch with my family. We walked in and it was almost empty. No one greeted us so me made our own way to a table and chose from the mediocre menu. The food arrived hot and plenty of it, but the quality was not great. The chips were horrible. A loud cricket match played... More

Was really amazed by how great our dinner was (Beef Lasagna) and after a very long drive it was much needed I would recommend to anyone

We'd arrived rather later for lunch when we got to Charlestown (often seen i many a seafaring drama) and had been unable to get a table at our normal haunt of the Pier House hotel. Instead we ended up next door in the Harbourside Inn. It was a fairly busy and quite noisy pub but whose menu had stated that... More

Charlestown in a must-visit if you are anywhere near St Austell. However we were on a tight budget and most of the restaurants were beyond our price range. The Harbourside Inn advertised that it was the "Cheapest in the area" and I believe it was. It had a lovely view of an old-rigged boat so we sat near the window,... More

Popped into watch the Liverpool fa cup semi final. We got there early and we're lucky enough to get a beef roast. One of the best roast dinners I've had. Lots of beef and two types of potatoes and didn't scrimp on veg. Perfect

We visited this pub whilst staying locally to visit the eden project. We were made to feel welcome and the service was good. The adults' menu was great. I had the homemade fishcakes with thai sweet chilli sauce which were really nice. The children's menu was fine but, as others have said, parents would probably welcome a few veg, beans... More
