“VERY FRIENDLY PUB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

I am a coeliac and had two lovely meals both nights we were in Penally. The waitresses did everything they could to help me find something to eat as it is so difficult for me. Considering it was a little pub in a small village I even had two excellent puddings which was a highlight for me as even in some larger places I have trouble finding something to eat.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Never posted a review before but felt I needed to following the previous review. Food was excellent, portion sizes were very generous and all the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a lovely meal.

“Friendly pub shame about the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Nice friendly atmosphere and dog friendly too which is a bonus. Sadly food poor and not good value. I ordered "hake fillet in light tempura batter" which was on the specials board. What I got was something that may have been coley, almost certainly straight out of freezer and coated in a thick craggy batter - pretty sure not hake and definitely not tempura. Once I pealed off the batter there wasn't much left really. OH had "luxury fish pie" which the bar staff advised needed chips with it as there's not really a layer if mash on top. Fish pie was average and chips were pale, slightly wilted and again, almost certainly out of freezer and into deep fat fryer. If these meals had been £6 each and properly described if would have been ok. My fish dish was £9 and fish pie almost £10. Won't be back for return visit, which is a shame as its a nice pub.

“Superb Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

We stopped at the Cross Inn by pure chance with the dog in tow. We had not booked for Sunday lunch and sat outside. We ordered the 3 course meal and were not disappointed (including a veggie option). The food was fabulous and the service efficient and friendly. Well recommended.
