Outside looks like it's going to be a nice diner, very country orientated. No atmosphere inside though and also no Lime for a Lager and Lime (basic pub stuff you would think).
Ordered food, Starters were very nice, then came the mains. Steak and curry were very nice, but hold off if ordering chicken. the Chicken was very dry and overcooked. We did comment to the waitress that it would be better to include some sauce to the chicken dishes (we had 2 different ones) to maybe sort this out for future, but for now very dry and somewhat bland.
The Ladies toilets are apparently still the same as previous comments, and in the gents you had to hold the toilet seat up with one hand to avoid the sort of complaints the wife dishes out.
Decor in the whole place requires updating and is very tired at present.
As a last insult 2 of our party ordered a 3 scoop ice cream desert with a selection of 2 scoops of one flavour with 1 scoop of something else (normal in most places). When the bill came we had been charged for 3 deserts, because we had ordered a scoop of a different flavour and not all the same one. Had the ice cream been a plastic tub with pre concieved flavours, we could have accepted, but as this was individual scoops, it was not on. Yes we did get a refund on the 1 desert we didn't have in the end.
Needless to say we will not be dining there again, unless there is significant improvement.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a large friendly pub just outside Launceston, on the road to the lovely coastal town of Bude. We have 5 cosy, en-suite letting rooms. 1 Single, 1 Twin, 2 Doubles and a Family room with a double bed and bunk beds (to sleep 4). We have a very large, free car park and a safely enclosed childrens park on our large playing field next to the pub/car park. We have plenty of outside seating either on the edge of the playing field and in the childrens park, or in our patio area leading out from our function room. We serve a delicious standard menu which varies slightly from day to day with our freshly made soups, fish cakes, curries and pies of the day. We also have a weekly specials board containing, when available, some very local meats but always something temptingly tasty. There is plenty to do nearby at the Otter Sanctuary or just a short car journey away in Launceston, Bude or many of the other nearby beautiful coastal towns and villages. We are also 15 minutes away from the A30 that will lead to to other larger attractions such as the eden project. ... more less
