"This place rocks it"*

Chose to eat here with our 6yo and 4yo based on family friendly sign outside. Good selection on the menu though the kids options would benefit from baked beans or peas as a side perhaps. The service was good and the food good portions at a decent price. If you want pub food without hassles in a... read more

We stopped off here for a drink and what a lovely view. If the weather is good, opt for the garden at the side of the hotel where you can sit and watch the comings and goings round the harbour. We didn't eat here but the food looked hearty and people were enjoying it - a fairly standard pub menu.

Charlestown is a must see for anyone visiting Cornwall. This modern pub has a great atmosphere. The food is of high pub standard and there is entertainment most Saturday nights. Staff are very friendly.

We visited this pub for the second time, the first was a couple of years ago in December and we sat inside and had a doorstep Sarnie for lunch. This time it was Sunday lunch time and the weather was scorching, so we sat outside on the picnic benches and watched the antics of the divers and jumpers leaping into... More

We holiday in Charlestown 2-3 times a year and this is the place that we spend the most time in. Mostly because it is honest food and service at a very reasonable price but also because it has a pool table, that the kids like, and a great 'holiday/weekend' feel to the place. Favourites include the ham, egg and chips... More

Couldn't get in at Wreckers so tried the Harbourside Inn as they are next to each other. Did not have the ambiance or service of Wreckers but the food was every bit as good. The salmon was excellent. The bonus was the price. It was around £15 cheaper for our meal & drinks. The layout is a typical pub type... More

My husband and I had lunch here and it was lovely. The bar itself is immaculate and the decor is brilliant and in keeping with the location and its history. The staff are incredibly friendly and we had a good chat before ordering food. We did have to wait a little while but we had arrived just as the kitchen... More

The food was good. A standard pub menu at fair prices with a good range of well kept drinks. We ate here twice in a week and although served by different staff, both times the service was outstanding.
