Went first to try the local beer (excellent) so went there each evening for a drink. The staff were very helpful with advice so decided to eat there one evening. All the meals were of very good quality and (being from the south-east of England), very good value in term of quantity and price. Worth... read more

We arrived in Mevagissey on the Friday before the start of feast week, we called into this pub for a drink and liked the look of the menu. They were able to fit us into the restaurant area, and served us with great meals! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The landlord is a great character, recommending us... More

If you want a real pub with real food the the fountain is for you. Brilliant quip by the landlord when being asked by a tourist if the fish and chips came with anything his classic reply was yes, a plate together with a knife and fork. I congratulated him. Go where the locals go.

We absolutely Love this lovely little pub. It's nicely decorated with fairy lights on the ceiling. We all had their fish and chips as heard from word of mouth if you are going to have them then this is the only place to go and they were not wrong. My boys aged 2 and 3 years kept asking for more!!!... More

Had a seniors cod and chips for lunch. Probably the best we have ever had. The chips were superb and the cod fresh and in lovely batter. Ate in the bar which had a nice cosy feel. Really worth eating in and not getting a takeaway. Nice white wine as well.

Average food, waiting staff need some training and the wine selection is poor. The dinning area is very small but it is comfortable and has a friendly atmosphere.

We visited this place on the recommendation of a local couple that we met in a pub in Helston whilst waiting there between buses. We both opted for HSD as the Cornish Best had just finished - it was just as refreshing and welcome after a long day's walk from Portscatho. We would have returned for food later (our advisors...

Either eat in thebar or in the upstairs restaurant (recommended - but book). Superb fish and brilliant Fish Stew. You'll return again and again - we do!

Great steak meal for the money...so large was hard to finish. Very tasty!!! Staff were very accommodating even though they were already very busy they made space for us. Had profiteroles for desert which we were disappointed about as seemed to have squeezey bottle chocolate sauce on (like what kids put on ice-cream). Steak was so good though we ate... More
