Dropped in for a late afternoon drink and surprised to see how busy the Bar was during a November afternoon. We enjoyed a pint of Doom Bar and a decent glass of Shiraz in pleasant, lively surroundings. Obviously well supported by locals. Well priced drinks and bar food. Worth a visit.

Not really an inn, sort of cross between sports bar and pub. Soft drink choices a bit poor, no cloudy lemonade or elderflower for example. Very average pub food, soup, jacket potatoes: but luckily available all day. But what prices? Ouch, nearly ten pounds for a potato, apparent justified by a heap of green salad and not needed coleslaw .

My friend and i had an evening meal at the Harbour inn and it was very good. The pub was very busy so we had a fair wait until our food arrived but it wasn't a problem as there is a really friendly atmosphere here, we were sitting with two complete strangers but got chatting and it was lovely to...

Enjoyed excellent Betty Stoggs bitter here - beautifully kept and as good as any place in Cornwall. Party of 4 family members chose sharing platters for lunch - all tasty and served with a smile by the barman who seemed to be the only front-of-house member of staff on a quiet lunchtime.

Nice lunch reasonably priced. Clean pub friendly atmosphere and a nice pool table at the end. Don't get to play pool in a pub much these days so our teenage sons loved it and at 50p a game it's cheaper then I remember. Perfect half way stop when looking around Charlestown.

Had lunch in this place that seemed to have a TV mounted on every wall. Add noisy customer S drinking at the bar, it wasn't conducive to a, chat over lunch. Food was average and they don't understand what a vegetarian appreciates for food.
