Arrived at 7PM to a very busy pub, every table occupied and a full bar, I was regretting not booking! We were greeted by a very helpful smiling member of the staff. Leah asked if we wished to eat and informed us there was a table which had just become available, she swiftly removed the plates and glasses, organising another... More

We didn't book as we where looking for a dog friendly pub and this pub was listed so we thought we would give it a go. Our dog was able to come inside the pub and was with us while we ate. The food and service was excellent. If you need a dog friendly family pub this is the one.

Yet another visit and yet again outstanding! With a family with children with dietary requirements there was complete no hassle help from the staff! The bar staff had even remembered us from s visit 6 months previous! The food as always outstanding! This lovely place is always on the "to do" list when we bust St Austell!

Came here whilst on holiday in St Austell...as the reviews seems good. To my horror, I was soo mistaken!! First appearance...the tables were sticky.... Secondly, the dish I ordered was oven roasted salmon with herb potatoes and steamed veg. The salmon was over cooked and the veg....broccoli was sloppy! If it wasn't for the fact we were all hungry....I think... More

We all enjoyed our dishes here, the steaks were done to perfection. The place was really busy, but the dishes still came out quickly.

No doubting the value and quality of the food, and the recommended local ale. One criticism was the appearance of the lady who is the temporary manager. If the intention is to present a team image with members of staff all wearing uniforms, then I would expect the manager, temporary or otherwise, to also portray that image. Quite frankly I... More

Myself and the mother stayed down in Cornwall last week, so we wanted somewhere that served a non complicated menu for a reasonable price range. Everywhere where we were staying seemed so expensive, and after venturing further we found this place. Total honesty.. My initial expectations of the food quality was low - but I was proven wrong! The food... More

We stopped for lunch as it was raining and the food certainly brightened up the day. Good quality food and value for money.
