Down a narrow Cornish Lane youll find this 17th century pub, bands, musicians, phenomenal singers and a clientele thats happy to dance where there is no space for dancing. Cant say I have experienced anything quite like it before. This was a Friday night too so would love to see what a Saturday is like.

However, had to eat this food against a back drop of staff talking about slimfast shakes and the fact that cherries made one member of staff projectile vomit. Then another member of staff who was going on holiday stating what made her feel sick. I ve never had a... More

I picked my partner up from the train station in Gunnislake and we strolled down the hill in the beautiful countryside, to a warm welcome. the Young women on duty were helpful and courteous (when not dowsing themselves in vodka!) and attentive to the needs of the customers. The food was freshly cooked and well prepared. The beer was perfect... More

Friendly staff in a clean comfortable setting. Outside Garden and parking. Great Open Mic nights with an abundance of Cornish Talent. We were taken back by the level of singing in particular a young couple called the Two Jay's. We had food at the pub and the food was good and the prices were well priced. would definitely visit again.

Lovely food, good prices, very friendly staff, wheelchair accessible. We are back to Gunnislake this September and will visit again - although the premises were up for sale and may be under new management.

Our first holiday lunch here on arrival into Gunnislake. Very friendly service from the locals, even a dog there called 'Etta' who kept our daughter entertained. I opted for ` jacket potato with beans and cheese, it was lovely as were my families meals. My husband and father in law thought the beer was good too. Very traditional and quirky... More

Great Pub, great staff, good food. The location is stunning, the gardens are lovely, the Gents a trip down memory lane! Real Ales in abundance and Sunday Lunches are a real treat.
