“Wonderful Sunday Lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stopped by "The Rifle" for lunch today. They do a fab roast, and an a la carte menu, on a Sunday. Lucky for me there was also a nut roast on the specials! All the trimmings, more than enough to eat! Beautiful views over the River Tamar Valley while we ate and it was sunny and quite warm - we even had to open the window (after the hailstorms yesterday!) Thoroughly recommend it!

“Sunday Lunch 13/01/13”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

After reading the review reference soggy vegetables I was a little concerned, however as we live local we thought we would give it a go. Over the years we have visited many times under different management. Hey, we are so pleased we did give it a go, the sunday lunch was fantastic, no soggy vegetables a good selections of meats to choose from, fantastic flavours and exceptional value. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We are a family with young children and it works! So please give it a go! Well done to the owners and staff at the Rifle we will be back, may even be this Sunday!

If there was anything you may consider not all families turn up with activities eg colouring if it was provided like Table Table that may help and maybe a little more vegetables

Thanks for your review! I have now added some children's colouring in sheets and crayons downstairs (kindly donated by our 5 year old son who also donated the toys by the sofa seating area!). We look forward to seeing you again! Clare and Marius
