Popped in on the off chance last Sunday week while touring the Lizard in iffy weather and looking for a Sunday roast. I had the beef and my wife the pork. Both were delicious. The beef was the biggest mountain of perfect medium rare beef I have ever had in my 70 years! The pub was heaving so probably best... More

We've been here a few times now. Our last visit was a couple of years ago and I commented on the slightly slip-shod service. Not being one to hold a grudge, we dropped in again for a spot of lunch. Once again, the people were very friendly and welcoming. So that's not changed, but nothing else has changed either. The... More

This is a typical Cornish country pub, with smallish rooms and low ceilings giving it a real cosy atmosphere. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is good but not cheap. A good & varied selection on the menu and also a specials board. We visited near Christmas and enjoyed a lovely three course meal and although it... More

Decided to visit the Halzephron after reading the reviews here. Despite the obvious charm of the main bar area, we were placed in a back room that had no character and think is probably used for children given the toys and hooks in place. Sounded like the main bar area was having a great time, but as we were out... More

We go to Cornwall about four or five times a year and always go to the Halzephron for lunch at least once. Food is delicious. Views are fab. We always get there early to get a good seat outside as it soon fills up! We will be back on Friday and can't wait!!!

The Halzephron is a traditional cosy Cornish pub with a varied menu and comprehensive daily specials board. Lovely dinner last night - particularly liked the sea bass fillets with roasted autumn veggies.  All four of us enjoyed all three courses. Nice to have a choice of cheeses from the board, all of which were delicious, accompanied by a very smooth... More

We visited this inn twice on our stay on the Lizard and had a very good lunch. Crab au gratin was lovely and fish and chips beautifully fresh. The beach just down the lane opposite the pub is the best beach for dogs on the lizard and dog friendly all year round. It stretches for miles from Gunwalloe to PorthLeven.

This is such a lovely, interesting pub, a stone's throw from the magnificent Cornish cliffs, with their spectacular views. I always like a pub which has bowls of water for the customers' dogs, especially when on a walking route. The Halzephron staff were charming and very helpful, advising us on choices - every single thing the four of us ate... More

Having read some reviews about this Inn my expectations were high as you can't really judge a place until you have been there yourself. Lovely location with views across the sea, I ordered a Beef burger with extra toppings and chips, whilst my husband had Fish & Chips it looked lovely when it came out the chips were rustic and...

We stopped in here after visiting the beach near by. Unfortunately we missed food times but enjoyed some lovey local ciders. A fab quaint dog friendly pub with bags of character!
