“fantastic pub, food and landlord”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Great food Tavern pie is lovely so is the ribeye steak. Reasonable prices for a pub food is fresh and tasty. Highly recommend the crab soup. Overall is pub food so don't expect a London restaurant but its tasty.

“No frills but great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

The family descended on the pub twice during our recent weeks stay in Newlyn. Staff were friendly in this good old fashioned pub. Best was the food. The ribeye steak is excellent value, so tender and tasty. That said everyone enjoyed whatever they'd ordered to eat. Beer was good too. All that and you look out of the window and there is Newlyn Harbour. Magic!

“Edible...but too dear”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Fish pie / fish and chips / squid rings / mussels reasonable but 50% more expensive than it should be, I think.
