I am always super impressed whenever we go to the The Mount Edgcumbe. Firstly, the location is gorgeous and pretty secluded which is amazing considering it is also bang slap in the middle of town. Sitting outside in the summer the atmosphere is great and inside the decor has a lovely country pub feel. But for me the best part... More

Booked for a Friday lunch, staff were all helpful and welcoming. Food was tasty, really good, well priced wine list and a hot coffee (can't stand lukewarm coffee!). Will definitely recommend.

We stopped off to eat here after a hike in the South Downs. The food was exactly what we needed after a long day of walking, great atmosphere and decor. I'd definitely come again.

We ate at the Mount Edgcumbe last week and have to express our delight at our experience. The food was excellent and the service exemplary. Compliments to the owners, Rob and Sally who made a personal effort to ensure we were happy! Mt Edgcumbe is opening 6 rooms shortly and as Australian travelers we will certainly be staying at the...

Sat outside in the sunshine for pre dinner drinks. An oasis in the middle of town. Dinner in the first floor was very good. Chilli Squid and a really nice steak. Looking forward to the rooms that are about to open. They're to a really high standard.

This was a really disappointing experience in terms of service and quality. The staff were utterly over run by sunny day arrivals and sadly we were left waiting nearly an hour for our main course. We'd booked months ago but seemed to take second place to those arriving on the day, sitting in the garden. We had two young children... More

We've been to the Mount Edgcumbe a few times and every time have had great food and friendly service. Last night was a large group and we were asked to pre order, which was fine. We had a drink in the lovely garden, nestled in the common, beforehand and although the restaurant was busy we were served quickly and the... More

Come here very regularly with my better half. We walk the dog nearby and drop in afterwards for a drink or two. Great, friendly staff. Lovely setting to sit back and relax whilst enjoying a drink with friends. Food is brilliant. The steak burger is one of the best burgers I've ever had. Well worth a visit if in the... More

Came here in a group of 7, meals included salmon, this was ok, 2 of our party had this meal. Venison was tough, seafood platter was nothing special. The fish and chips, the chips were over cooked and had either green or black patches, the fish was overly greasy and batter was a bit slimy. I told our server, she... More
