I normally visit the pub a couple of times a year for lunch and we always choose the Chiverton Arms due to the excellent food.
Today, a great change!
Ordered the Salmon and Prawn fishcakes, with boiled pots that I had specifically asked to be served with 'no' butter.
The fishcakes were overcooked, very hard on the outside, dry on the inside and tasteless. Pots came in a seperate dish with butter swimming in the bottom, accompanying salad was just mostly chopped up peppers with a couple of leaves and two slices of cucumber.
Did not finish this meal at 12.95!!!
When the waiter came to take the plates, I stated my concerns. No apology, just Oh I thought the potatoes did not come with butter so obviously there was no communication with the chef.
Service from the waiter from arrival was very cold and almost aloof.
As I said, hopefully just went on a bad day but will probably try somewhere else next time.

I live in Cornwall and have found it hard to find a good local friendly pub with great food but when carol and Barry took over this pub they transformed it into an amazing pub that hit the spot every time with a great environment for the entire family from grandparents to grandchildren amazing place if you are coming to Cornwall make the effort to come for a visit

We enjoyed a traditional Sunday lunch here. A choice of pork, turkey or silverside of beef. Roast potatoes, roast parsnips, carrots, brocolli and an enormous Yorkshire pudding. It was not too much trouble for them to make some gluten free gravy for my coeliac husband, served in an individual gravy boat. All this was washed down with Cornish Rattlers cider on draught. A lovely Sunday lunch. Well worth a visit.

We are local to this pub and visit a couple of times a month. Sometimes with our young children and sometimes alone. We always order food as the standard is excellent. The welcome is always warm and inviting and the children are always made to feel welcome there is a great play garden for them too. Carol and the team are always very hardworking but make time to have a chat and ask how we are. In a world where many pubs are being taken over by large brewery's and losing their identity this place is truly refreshing. I would highly recommend it to any one.

I love this pub, the decor has a Parisian feel but without the Parisian prices ;-) !!! Had a table booked for Mothering Sunday. 3 Courses for a good value fixed price. Food was delicious, really tasty flavours! Service was great, it was busy but staff coping perfectly, friendly and constantly cleaning. Atmosphere was perfect, there was a man playing the piano and a girl playing the sax. What a fabulous idea!!!
We have eaten up here in the evenings too and the quality of the food has never failed us.

visited on 12th October .we were greeted as soon as we came in shown to a table.It is really nice inside and the restaurant has a great atmosphere.The waiter was very friendly and helpful.
We ordered the steak which was truly succulent and very filling.This came with peas/mushrooms/onion rings and home made chips.There was no room for a dessert!.
This place is def worth a visit and we will certainly be returning.Will be looking forward to trying their sunday carvery which i am sure will be as good as the steak
