Back on form

We used to eat here regularly but hadn't eaten here for some time, (probably 18 months) as our last experience had been really bad. I am glad to say, they are back on form ( I believe they have a new manager). The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was great. We only had the burger... read more

Informed pub under new management, new couple made us welcome and provided good service. Pre-booked a table for four but table was not ideal as it was near a door, which was a bit draughty. A specific eating areas need to be made as early drinking only customers' seemed to have the best tables. Limited menu but meals were freshly... More

Sunday lunch was appalling. The Roast beef was Dripping in Blood and had been seared only. Flavourless and mostly full of fat. The veg was big standard and tasted as if it had been frozen. All in all the food was appalling. Both I and my wife and my parents in law felt it was a complete waste and we’d... More

I have dined here both at lunchtime and in the evening. Service and food quality have always been excellent; pricing is fair, and there is a good range of wines sensibly priced. I have no hesitation in commending it to couples, families or groups, though as with most pubs, it is not suitable for those with young children. There is... More

We always try to pop in here for lunch, if visiting or passing through Truro. It is a welcoming pub and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had a very pleasant lunch, and as usual there was a good choice of St Austell ales. Not sure if there has been a change of chef, or just menu, but our... More

We have always been so pleased with the standard of the roast, always loved all the flavours on one plate.... Not sure what we were served today but it wasn't up to the usual standard, can only describe the meat as boiled and should've been served with a steak knife! The veg although was plentiful, was completely tasteless and not... More
