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

We were booked in but because of a large group were on two tables however the staff accommodated very well and put us in another part of the building. Although not as dark and atmospheric they dimmed the lights and put candles on the table. Very attentive staff and friendly. Meal was excellent and so was the mead. Would recommend... More

We visited whilst working away, we had the chicken in the rough, fish sticks and ribs and all of it was amazing, the staff are friendly and helpful and the mead is delicious. The whole place is like a medieval castle with wooden stairs, flags and shields on the walls and ceilings. If I had a criticism it would be... More
