“Dont bother to go there. Awful service they dont care”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

If you are thinking of going there take sandwiches as it takes so long to be served. Take a friend as staff will not speak to you. Went 1st December it was less than half full. Took 10 mins to place an order .1 hour later still no food. Is 2 gammon & chips that difficult to cook ? Plenty of staff there but do not know what is going on. The head waitress simply did not appear to care & said she did no know what was going on. We were offered a coffee to wait even longer - so no thanks - we walked & will never return. A terrible advert for Whitbread & its lack of management at this place . There were lots of other customers waiting for the same time as us. Stonegate Pubs or Wetherspoons are so much better organised. Come on Wetherspoons open in Liskeard.

“Worth waiting for?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Arrive to wait 5 mins. to be shown to a table, acceptable nearly.
Waiting over 10 to order a drink and a meal, not really. Especially when not that busy.
Time between finishing your starter and receiving your main meal, practically ONE HOUR,
Totally unacceptable at any time. Then not the best of meals.
And this is not the first time. However when they are busy, they get things about right.
Is it worth the gamble for that special evening out?

“Reasonably priced pub fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

As far as Liskeard is concerned, there aren't lots of places to eat, so this is a welcome venue if you don't have unlimited funds. At times they can be fully booked, so it's worth phoning to check availability. The food is OK, but not a lot more. But it's not ridiculously priced! The beers can be pleasant, with a real ale or two always available. The service is attentive, and generally with a smile. Always worth a consideration if you don't feel like cooking, and are watching the pennies!

My family and I often eat here. Loads of choice. Have to book sometimes but not always. Good food. Good drink. Recommended.

“Overpriced microwavable food + awful service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Visited with family. Was told it was a 20 minute wait for a table. Ok fine. Wasn't even that busy. Eventually got seated. They took our orders.. over an hour later still no food. Eventually the food arrived, but they had got the orders wrong.... food arrived correctly after a few tries of getting the orders right, apart from mine. Was told I'd have to wait another 3 minutes for my incredibly complex "cheese burger". (probably the only thing they don't use the microwave for). After 10 still nothing ,so cancelled order as family had eaten their meals. No sorry, or anything from waiter. Plus the food served was disgusting looking and no value for money at all.
Forget thinking that going in just for a quick pint Would be good idea either. You'll be waiting at the bar for ages, they will see you but won't acknowledge you waiting.
I'm local to this place and iv had nothing but consistent bad service and food at this place. Will not be returning again After this experience.
