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

We have visited the Newlyn Meadery every time we've been in the area and it never disappoints. The latest visit was Tuesday evening in the summer holidays. We arrived at 6.25 and queued outside. At 6.30 the doors opened and everybody in the queue was seated, almost all of the tables were full. Our order was taken within 10 minutes... More

The Newlyn Meadery. An institution that is an absolute MUST-DO for all walks of life. Freshly prepared chicken and chips in a basket and scampi and chips amongst the top favourites on the menu. Plus a vast array of great salady dishes, buffet style. Achingly tempting desserts that you didn't realise you still had room for. Of course the drink... More

Newlyn Meadery is deservedly popular with families. Food is basic but good, service is always excellent. The allergy menu even includes "may contains" - first time we've ween this.

Visited on the last night of our camping trip. Ordered the Chicken in the rough. It was excellent. The food was piping hot and I think I lost my fingerprints but I don't care because it was delicious The waitress was lovely and very helpful. We had our little boy with us and he got very distressed by a group... More

We come every year and we cannot fault it. It is designed to be a medieval banquet hall, so the lighting is on point! Food on the menu is food that would have been available in them days plus the chips. Always leave satisfied and will always return! Tried the other meaderies in Penzance and this is by far the...
