We ate outside at large round tables, so nobody was left out at the end. Food was standard pub fare, but all well cooked and we had no complaints. Everyone enjoyed the meal, and the kids menu choices were popular with our boys.More

This was the first pub I went to when I moved to Falmouth 3 years ago. It seemed the obvious choice - bang in the middle of town, right on the harbour front and always fairly busy. Since then it's changed hands and the food...More
