Had our long awaited trip booked for 14 months for my husbands 60th birthday. Arrived on 20/3/20 as pubs were advised to close due to corona virus. Sadly we had just arrived in the village and were asked to leave as soon as PM announced pub closures despite it being 5.30 pm. Pub landlord made it clear tourists weren’t welcome. We could purchase takeaway food and drinks from doorway during our stay however, we did not feel welcome and some locals made that very clear. Also, sign put up outside the pub certainly gave us the same impression. Very uncomfortable feeling.

Friendly staff. Welcoming locals. Realistic prices. Open fire. Sun going down over the harbour. A pretty perfect way to spend a Friday evening

Called in here several nights whilst staying in Port Issac.
Had food one night, they went over the top to accommodate us for a table, very nice friendly young couple, couldn’t do enough for us. Food was good quality and fresh, yes def would recommend this pub.
