My family and I love a trip to the Meadery and always make a point if we have friends visiting to take them It's a fantastic experience - kids love the fact there's no cutlery. The food is always piping hot and comes it very generous portions I love the half and half salad and chips option with the main... More

The food here is never going to win any culinary awards but at least you always know what you're going to get and you never ever leave still feeling hungry. The menu has barely changed over the last 30 years, but then why change a winning formula? Fried stuff with chips and/or salad! It's been a while since I've visited... More

Good fun and finger food at this family friendly eatery in Newlyn. Nice atmosphere and friendly service too. We always try and visit when we're in Cornwall and haven't been disappointed yet!

We were looking forward to a menu that consisted of Old English fare. What we had was tasty but ordinary food. Prawn cutlets, salad, chips, garlic bread, 1/2 a chicken deep fried. This is in my opinion pub food. We were looking forward to rustic hearty old English food like roast beef or pork with lashings of dark oozey gravy,... More

6 of us at five past nine on a Saturday evening having been delayed on our journey and were turned away as they finished serving at 9. Can a business afford to do that these days? We were 6 fifty somethings who were very sober, hungry and thirsty!! We would have eaten anything at that point. Luckily the lovely little... More

After our last visit we were excited to eat from the Meadery again on a visit to Cornwall and we were not disappointed. We ordered takeaway as we were buying for family too. Service was very friendly and the food was excellent. You can expect big portions and very tasty food. The salad bar has a wide range of different... More

Not exactly what I was expecting when we got there however looks amazing inside and is very reasonably priced. Most of the food you eat with your hands however you do have the opportunity to use conventional knife and fork. Staff very friendly and helpful and in old style attire well worth a visit
