“Pretty average...at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had an evening meal. Not much atmosphere in the ugly modern interior but the the staff were friendly and efficient. I had onion soup to start which was terrible, it was like a bowl of mustard with onions in it. I then had rump steak which was cooked okay but had no flavour, clearly just chucked onto the grill without bothering to marinade or season. My wife had the pollock which she said was very good. Didn't fancy the desserts as they looked like they had been spinning in the display case all day. Not the worst but won't be hurrying back.

“A good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Arriving in Boscastle late for an evening meal we decided to try The Old Manor House. Dogs are welcome in the garden. We ordered and were told there would be a little wait. When the food arrived it was tasty, well cooked and we enjoyed it. Don't expect fine dining, it is what it is, and they have a take away option too. A little pricey but the drinks were good and the service was friendly.

“Worst food in cornwall”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Roast beef was terrible - potatoes and parsnip definitely been in a fat fryer. Yorkshire pudding shattered when cut. Crab sandwich £7.50 !!!! Thin cut brown bread and a tiny smothering of crab -side of chips were over cooked and oily. Hate sachets of cheap ketchup. Lovely pub but need to sort your food out !!!!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The restaurant's name is a bit misleading because inside the decor is very contemporary, with clean lines, glass table tops etc. We found the food and service excellent. A good idea to book because it's pretty popular - an indication of its quality.
