A meal with friends

Superb meal for seven people we had to book as it is so popular. We were not disappointed their fish menu is excellent as you would expect. The beer was also well kept

Visited here with five friends from Bavaria. Not our first visit by any means but the first with overseas guests. It more than lived up to the promises we had made to our guests. Lively, friendly and engaging - different Cornish beers & ciders were sampled (and Guiness) all pronounced excellent. We stayed to eat and the landlady couldn't have... More

While here for a week came here a couple of times and a great little pub small and niche but lovely food quite reasonably priced but the sticky toffee pudding was to die for. Well worth a visit

A good restaurant for seafood especially with a congenial atmosphere and solid British style cuisine. Dine upstairs in the restaurant or in the bar and you are guaranteed a good experience.

Undoubtably the best fish and chip meal we've had for many a year absolutely delicious. Welcoming staff and a nice range of ales. The reason not five stars the ladies toilets which my wife had to negotiate a pile of plastic to get too and upon reaching were not the most hygienic. The Gents were fine apart from the hand...

We recently stopped in here for dinner after a busy day of adventures. This was one of the better bar meals we had had in Cornwall. Although the mussels weren't the most amazing meal (not enough sauce) the Fish and Chips were quite tasty. The staff were also quite friendly.

Managed to squeeze in here for dinner one night. Our dogs were allowed as well and found the flagstone floor really cool after their walk. Terrific home cooked food. Friendly staff and locals made us feel really welcome.

We just love going to this pub for meals while we are staying in Pentewan, we went 3 times during our holiday, once for the Seniors fish and chips at lunch time, which we struggle to get through - really great. We had two meals in the upstairs restaurant which can only be described as perfect. Food as always was... More
