Received a warm welcome at the bar of the Atlantic Hotel as soon as I walked in, and soon got chatting with a local. With no less than four St Austell real ales on offer, and a selection of hot meals and sandwiches at lunchtime and evenings, this is a good alternative to The Mermaid just down the... read more

On our first visit, we were somewhat squashed as there were two large parties there, but the staff were friendly and served us efficiently. On the second occasion we chose our table, had a fantastic view and again the service and the food were excellent. We went back and ate in the bar and received the same friendly efficient service....

We had an evening meal here, and it was all very good. Despite being very busy, the staff were polite and efficient. The food and drinks were served quickly and it was all good value.

This was exactly my idea of a good cosy pub restaurant. The food was excellent and we received great service from the staff. This restaurant had a lovely cosy atmosphere. Just what you need for a relaxed evening on holiday.

I like this bar a lot. It is where you meet the locals, can dip into local culture and discover greta pub grub, fine beers and great hospitality. Spacious, family friendly and a warm welcome assured. A great stop on your day in St Mary's, close to all the shops , the museum and the harbour for trips to other... More

I went to Atlantic Inn for lunch, as I was drawn to the rustic exterior of the pub and as busy as it normally is I expected my lunch to be a fulfilling one. The staff were friendly and adequate at the bar, so we were off to a good start. The atmosphere in the pub itself was of arcadia... More

Failing to get a table the night before increased our efforts this time. We had heard that the food here was excellent but found it very basic fare. One has to do everything yourself except deliver the food. I suppose if you enjoy a noisy atmosphere with battered everthing, this might be to your liking.

I am sorry we did not meet your expectations on this occasion, but we do not provide full service in the bar, like many pubs you order at the bar and your food is delivered to your table. We only have one battered item on our menu which happens to be one of our most popular dishes and that’s fish... More

Stopped for lunch last Saturday as had a couple of hours before the Scillonian. The menu had a wide range of tasty looking pub food, but that's about where the positives stopped. I ordered burger, which came with bacon, cheese, fries & coleslaw. As soon as this arrived I noted there was no coleslaw on my plate, so asked the... More
