“Lovely friendly and fun staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We found this as we walked past, so made a reservation for 7:30, on arrival it was much smaller than we imagined and were ushered to a table upstairs by the very friendly and fun filled waiter. We both ordered the deep fried Camembert, with a great red onion marmalade, must try and replicate. Maddy had the Hunters Chicken, smothered in bacon, cheese & a BBQ sauce with onion rings, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms and peas, with a choice of either chips, new potatoes or salad. I just had an 8oz sirloin and was talked into the chips as they were very highly recommended, and they were very good, also a port, brandy and mushroom sauce, also highly recommended and great. Cooked to my liking and we decided on a nice red with some Zin and no desert.

A great meal with a great atmosphere, highly recommended. We visited on May 25 2013.

“Lunchtime visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Whilst visiting my granddaughter in Penzance, along with my daughter-in-law, we called into Dreckleys for a bite of lunch. We each ordered something different from the Daytime Menu and were delighted with our individual choices - generous helpings and nicely presented, exceptional value for money. I look forward to eating there again when visiting Penzance later this month.

“Great place, great steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I came here with a group of friends for a meal. The place is quite intimate in its layout, and you're instantly greater by the friendly staff. The menu whilst not the most extensive, covers all the bases, and most importantly offers a good range of steaks, sauces and other essentials in a good steak restaurant. The wine selection was pleasantly surprising, offering a nice selection of wines at good prices.

The steaks were cooked beautifully, and were a real treat to eat. And even though a bit busy, the staff were attentive, without hovering round in the background, just the right mix. For desert, I had some of the locally produced ice cream which was devine.

Can't rate this place highly enough.
