Unfortunately we didn't get to eat here as we didn't have the foresight to book such is it's popularity.

We've just returned from a two week stay in Bolingey. Having a local, dog friendly pub was a factor location wise. We were not disappointed.

We have just spent a week nearby, and once we found this 17th century inn, we made sure we booked 7.30pm each night. Food was amazing, and service came with a smile. Look forward to visiting agin in the future. Superb.
