Very helpful, amusing guy in charge at lunchtime. We nabbed the last crab sandwiches available. Fresh as a daisy, and the house Chardonnay was excellent. A fun lunch in an untouristy pub.

On our first night in Padstow we decided to try and visit as many pubs in the harbour as we could, sadly only made four!! It was a wet Thursday night in November and it was quiet but it still had atmosphere and charm with a friendly barman. Didn't eat so cannot comment on the food.

We had some very good calamari with some wine could not fault the presentation and generous portion. We had also visited here... More

Stayed here for a long weekend. Clean room, good breakfast and great location. Its a low to mid range hotel so good value. the staff and the locals are very friendly. Can be noisy at weekends as its a pub.

We had 1 lunch here of monk-tail scampi and goujons which were fine but I think that you come here for the... More
