Pretty pub- proper traditional English look. Friendly welcome - usual pub grub. Good specials; lovely salmon, disappointing mackerel.

Walking in the area and had a wait for the bus back to Falmouth so dropped into the pub for a mid afternoon drink, quite time so the service was quick and friendly. Minimum spend on the card id £10, no food from about 3 til 6.

A welcome late dinner booking (10 to 9pm). Lovely staff and a great fish dish. I was working late locally and staying at a local hotel. Just bobbed out to find something to eat and have a drink. Nice food, service, environment and free Wifi. What else could I need?

My wife and I visited relatives that live in the area. We had a table for 4 whilst England were playing Wales at Rugby. The pub is split into Bar (TVs, Darts), and lounge (Dining). On arrival, the welcome was very friendly and we were shown to our reserved table. I would not say the menu is on the Goumet... More

Went to listen to the carol singer's on boxing day, as recommended by the hotel we were staying in. Great beer, great atmosphere and very merry festive atmosphere.

We had booked a table for 7.15 on Thursday 13th Oct. and when we arrived the restaurant was empty. The standard menu was rather dull, but the Specials looked more interesting. I started with the Crevettes which looked great, but were woefully short on some green ginger and garlic, and were a bit dry - probably frozen prawns. My companions... More

Called in here for an evening meal, we had a couple of specials and meals from the chalk board. Food was great and service prompt. I would recommend this place, a good local’s pub and a good night out.
