Had the best ploughman's lunch I've ever eaten here along with fast friendly polite service on a nice terrace by the sea, perfect! Liked it so much we went back again the next day so can recommend the sandwiches & egg & chips too.

We decided to have a family meal as we had looked at the reviews online and I can honestly say the customer service was fantastic and the value for the meal was spot on I couldn't fault the food at all we will be returning when we visit the area again.

We've stayed in Port Gaverne many times in the last 12 years, both at the Port Gaverne hotel and other self catering accommodation. My whole family love the port and the hotel. So close to the beach where the children go rock pooling, and for the adults the fantastic hotel! We always intend to self cater but end up eating every night at the hotel where the staff are so welcoming and the food is very good. The outside veranda is great, especially if it gets a bit cooler. This is a fantastic place, don't really want to report how good it is because I'd like to keep it for those of us who appreciate it already, but to be fair to the owners have to give it a 5 star rating!

12th year of returning to this epitome of a Cornwall pub hotel.
Chef Brodie still there and working his magic, friendly staff and dogs galore - they love it as much as the people; locals and visitors alike.
Great food (bar or restaurant) where you can get a plateful of decent vegetables with your fresh fish or locally sourced meats. These guys having been doing this a lot longer than the fancy TV chefs, so much so that we couldn't book this year as they were full.
Crab soup is a must, oysters if you ask and, for us group of golfer now and again, a spotted dick/custard - specially made. Interesting how everyone else in the restaurant orders this when they know it's on!
Rooms are smallish but tidy but heyho the bar atmosphere and Doom Bar make up for any deficiencies in that direction.

Room Tip: Dog rooms are bigger and quiet so worth a visit. The adjacent Green door cottages are also good valu...

Staying in north Devon and visited our favourite place for Crab Soup, and as usual it was delightful, especially accompanying homemade herb roll, next time will pay for an extra one it was so delicious.
The menu is excellent, one is spoiled for choice, we observed other meals arriving at tables and the looks of pleasure as the other customers began their meals.
My husband noted there was an excellent choice of whiskys for the discerning drinker and the beers that would satisfy most tastes.
The atmosphere is very welcoming and unlike the inflated prices of Port Isaac, you get value for money.

Spent 4 nights at this lovely hotel with my husband and casper our dog, wonderful hotel, rooms clean and tastefully decorated , The food was worth every penny especially the lobster which my husband thoroughly enjoyed ,we ate at the hotel each night but get there early as its very popular The staff friendly and helpful offering to set up a table in the snug each morning so that our dog was able to be with us whilst we had breakfast. No rowdy pubs , nightclubs or amusement arcades just peace and tranquility
