“Good food and drink.”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We have been coming to visit Tintagel for many years and we can recommend The Cornishman. The menu has plenty of choice, once ordered the sevice was quick and served by friendly staff. I chose the steak which was the best steak that I have tasted for a long time. The rest of our party were more than pleased with their meals. One word of warning, select where you sit with care as it can be a tad whiffy just outside the Gents!

Stayed in Tintagel at a local cottage, a short walk from the Cornishman Inn and visited here on several occasions through out our holiday. We found the staff very welcoming and very friendly and they excepted dogs, which was good for us, as we had our Golden Retriever with us for the week.
The food was absolutely delicious and the Rattler Cider is very easy to drink...lol
They have a great specials board in the restaurant area and then a small lounge area (no dogs in that area. I think due to the house cat likes it there...lol) and a much larger bar area, with two pool tables, two large T.V's and some comfy couches to relax in and your dog is ok in that area. They have extensive grounds outside, with a kids play area and tables and we just loved the place.
By the time we left, the staff had us feeling like we were locals, especially Amy behind the bar, who always made us feel extra welcome and always had a smile on her face.
This is a first class establishment. food is excellent and the range of alcoholic drinks is great. Well worth a visit, several times and knocks spots off the local bars and pubs.
WE WILL BE BACK.

My wife and I took a short break in Tintagel and choose the Cornishman Inn in which to stay. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly barman who confirmed our details then immediately showed us to our room. The room was in an accommodation block which was an extension of the Inn. The room itself was a good size, had plenty of hanging and storage space, Sky TV, tea and coffee making facilities and an en-suite shower and toilet. Both the room and the shower room were spotlessly clean. Heating was by way of electric convector heater which you could adjust or turn on or off as required. The inn consisted of a number of bars, one was in the original building and used as a lounge bar, another was a large family room and another was more of a café style bar. The range of beers on offer was good. Food was served in all bars. We ate an evening meal on both evenings that we stayed. Each meal was of a very high standard and could not be faulted in any way. The portions were generous and there was a large selection of daily specials. Breakfast was served between 9.00am-10.00am and was excellent. Guests requiring an earlier breakfast could do so but cooked breakfast was not available before 9.00am.
Outside there was a well equipped children's play area, although was not used during our stay. The Inn has it's own car park which is naturally free for patrons use. We could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation nor wished for better service or better food.
The inn is very situated for local sightseeing, about one minute from a National Trust Property and a short walk to Tintagel Castle. A note of warning here, the path to the Castle consists of some very steep climbs, a land rover shuttle service is available at a cost. From Tintagel it is but a short drive to places such as Boscastle, Port Isaac, Wadebrige or Lauceston.

Room Tip: We were in room 6 which was a second floor room. This was situated overlooking the entrance drive an...

We were visitng Cornwall for the weekend and decided to pop in to this restaurant.
The food was absolutely amazing - you could say it was fresh and prepared to perfection. Never experienced anything so tasty before.
The service that we received was superb. We said Thank You, but we just wanted to let you know that they made us really welcome and all our evening very comfortable - very smiling and helpful, which made us feel like at home.

Delicious lamb shank, steak ok but what made it for our stay was friendliness of the chef/ bar staff and other customers. Enjoyed sitting by the log fire on a winters night with a mulled wine. Missed Sunday lunch but was pleased when free roast potatoes were brought out which were fantastic after a ciders. Did not see the cat.

Pros: Immaculately spotless rooms, cosy pub atmosphere downstairs, friendly helpful (and very hard working) staff, great base for local cliff walking and exploration, good range of beers, good breakfast, parking and town centre location.

Cons: Only niggles, our window catches didn't seem to work, but we should have asked staff but couldn't be bothered. Some might like an explanation on how to use room TV (HDMI gets Sky is the tip) don't commit the cardinal sin of sitting too close to the blazing log fire after a wild wet walk otherwise you get ticked off, the Cornishman is not the Ritz so don't choose if you want luxury but it is a good honest pub/hotel not trying to be anything it isn't.

Room Tip: Our room 3 had fine country views to the rear of the hotel and was away from any roadside or pub noi...
