The menu is very limited and quality is only 3 star. Staff are quite polite and cheerful but the owner/chef needs to change and extend the menu - very boring.

We had a very enjoyable meal here as a family. The restaurant area was beautifully decorated and the views from the window are stunning. It was good to be able to order child sized portions for some of the meals, and we all agreed the food was very tasty. It was quite busy, so our meals were a little slow... More

This is a real shame as the Finnygook used to be a really nice place to eat, we went there for a family gathering and was a real let down. As soon as the first group arrived they were hounded by the staff who wanted to know if they were ready to be seated at the table, this continued even... More

What a lovely meal I had in this pub during my recent holiday in Cornwall. The food arrived very quickly and it was very hot. The red wine I had was very nice and there was a good selection. Well worth a visit and I will visit again.

Revisited this year after having had a birthday dinner there four years ago. Found the menu limited and overpriced. The Brunning family who used to run it have left and it is not as it was.

Knowing the Brunning family from South Devon had had some involvement with the Finnygook we were delighted to find it. We visited twice within a few days. The specials on the board were not available as they had ran out of rice, the day before. The bread roll for the burger was very hard. The red wine as delivered was... More

Only in Cornwall would you find the Finnygook Inn! finnygook.co.uk The menu was not huge but I wanted to book in to stay so that I could eat my way through it over a number of days - it was seriously mouth-warteringly tempting. As well as a la carte was an option of a 2 course lunch £10 or 3... More

We dropped in for just a pint and a snack, but could not resist the description of their roast beef sunday roast for the two of us. So when it arrived it was great in quality, taste and variety of accompaniments - what a good choice along with local real ale. My treacle sponge to follow was excellent too, not... More

Being local, this is the place we use to head for when family come to visit. NOT ANYMORE! On being seated we all commented that the tulips in the centre of the table were well past their best....but we were here for the fantastic food and spot on service so didn't give it another thought. There were only 2 other... More
