Relaxed, friendly and quality food

We often used to go to the Bolingey on the off chance for dinner but it has become so popular it is worth ringing to book first. The food is freshly cooked and is always excellent, as is the beer. There is a good range of daily specials - especially fish - but a big warning: the servings are... read more

Excellent food, great service. I ordered whole baked hake it was amazing. Children's meals are great too all home cooked. We'll be back!

In need of a refurb, smells slightly of damp dog (carpets, dogs and wet weather don't mix). However the food and ale are superb, looking forward to our next visit.

We have recently moved to within a five minute drive of the Bolingey and are pleased to have such a wonderful local close by. This is a PROPER pub. No fruit machines, no tvs no loud music. No pseudo decor trying to be pubby! Just a pure and simply pub as it should be. Fantastic atmosphere and the food is... More

We just popped into into our 'local' for a drink or two and a meal. Just brilliant, real ale of quality and SUPERB meals. Our choice tonight 'Duck' and 'Steak both prepared exactly to our request '.Mike and Carol (and Lauren) deserve praise for their hard work. The only downside is that in the summer it is so popular that... More

Popped in after coastal walking and as food was available from 6pm, we had a drink and decided to wait. The ham, egg and chips was excellent - my husband said that it was the best he had tasted! My fish pie was very tasty but the accompanying vegetables were rather al dente!! All in all, a nice experience though.... More

The food was very good with... More

Just had an absolute fabulous dinner here. We came with our dog so had to sit in the bar area which is absolutely fine. The food was excellent in both flavour and quality all home grown or locally sourced vegetables, fish and meat. Cooked to perfection and served by a warm and friendly team. Advise to book on a weekend... More
