We nipped in for a cuppa the other morning. A smiling young lady behind the bar greeted us and served us. Lovely cuppa, clean, well-stocked bar and noticed Friday/Saturday nights there's an Act on! We'll be back next week!

We ate here on Sunday night in the bar as it's dog friendly but also has a restaurant. Was very busy but service was fast and food was good with plenty of choice. Great pub with good atmosphere.

If over 18 and under 25 make sure you have ID with you. Even if you are not buying the drinks! Rattlers Cider sold here and a good selection of food and drinks. Worth watching the world go by and chatting to other locals/holiday makers.

Good pub for watching the football and a very nice pint of tribute, but I would say the food is a bit basic . Also very family orientated.

Have had several meals on my 2 trips to Porthleven and never had a bad meal. Good selection of seafood dishes and the crab salad is very good and fresh.
