Ate Sunday lunch here. The quality of ingredients was very good. The quality of the cooking was also very good; my wife described her salad starter as "spring on a plate" which is about the highest praise she could have given. Mother-in-law's mussels were fresh and lovely, and the child and I shared top class scotch egg and a pork pie, of which dishes I am something of a connoisseur.
The only two negatives I can think of were that my beef was a little bit unevenly cooked - some of it was nicely medium but a little bit over done - though compared to most pub roasts it was very much towards the excellent end of the scale. The yorkshire was maybe very, very slightly on the oily side.The veg were awesome; the carrots in particular were gorgeous. And the potatoes, which are often the weak point of a pub roast, were bang on.
The service was impeccable. Really, really good. Quick and very friendly. And then someone on the next table started choking, and a member of staff came running over to (successfully, thankfully) perform the Heimlich. Life saved, minimal fuss, bish bosh.
We asked for a doggy bag for the remnants of our son's plate, and they gave us tupperware to take it home in.
We also loved the ambience of the place, wood everywhere. All pubs should have wood everywhere. Really nicely done, and there's a nice little snug/cave if you're with a decently sized group.
There are a lot of very good pubs round here that we've been to but actually, if I was going out for a roast this weekend, or even just a pint and somewhere to read the paper, I'd choose the Mount Edgcumbe. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's not at the bottom of my road.
