Superb food and hearty portions

Having read recent reviews we thought we'd give The Bolingey Inn a try as a family of three and it was fantastic. A small inn with Imogen parking, it's worth a visit; my husband had the pheasant special with new potatoes and veg and commented he was very relieved he hadn't ordered a starter. Our... read more

I can't really comment on the food, as my wife and I just went for a drink. However we did watch the wife of the husband and wife team, cleaning the tables after someone had finished eating. Any food scraps were brushed on to the floor. The toilets were clean, but both hooks on the back of the doors were... More

Had a great few days at a local house with some friends, and went to the Bolingey Inn on Friday night. Catering for our table of 17 was no problem, the food all came out at the same time, piping hot and tasting fantastic. Great selection of beers too, liked it so much we went back tonight. They even lent... More

On the friday evening we went back and had a meal, although we waited a while for our food it was more than... More

Our second visit after such a good meal on our first. Such good service and food last time but so different this time. No welcome as I got to the bar even though I was the only person stood there, just a " what can I get you?". Sat at a table which was a little sticky and read the... More

Visited on the evening of the 1st November, we hadn't booked but were shown straight to a table. Lots of choice on the menu and the specials board. I had the monkfish in a cream tarragon sauce, which was to die for as was the lemon cheesecake. My husband had the Doom Steak & Ale Pie followed by Cheese &... More

Meal we had was second to none, good quality food, everything cooked from fresh, vegetables from their own allotment. My partner had ham, chips & eggs, my mum... More

It wasn't a good start. No-one else in the pub and the lack of atmosphere was matched by the barmaid sadly. Then we looked at the prices which were higher than we would have expected normally, so we ordered lunch with some trepidation. However when the food came it was way past our expectations - superbly cooked and delightfully presented... More

Just back from a week in Bolingey and a fabulous week in Cornwall. The local pub was recommended and we are so glad it was !!! Excellent food, all freshly cooked, superb service, very friendly, but professional too. The Beef and Ale pie is to die for - had it 2 nights running! Loved the pub, the food and everything... More
