“Perfectly good pub grub”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

The welcome and service here is warm and friendly, and the beer's spot on. Think we caught them after a very busy weekend and the cooking was OK but there's better to be had elsewhere locally - up the road in Porthleven - for the same money. Our starters and puds were good but our main of fish was only OK - pretty overcooked with the strange addition of a lump of cold smoked salmon on top containing I think some kind of home made tartare sauce didn't work and served to make the rest tepid. A bit more care and attention in the kitchen could have make it a must revisit pub. Right now I'm thinking yes I'd go back but I'd stick to the steak and ale pie.

only stopped for a drink but the service was very friendly and in a nice little part of cornwall with access to some nice coves near by, mullion, kynance, cadgwith. Hear the food is supposed to be very good so would want to try the food if in the area.

We recently celebrated our sons birthday and decided to give The Old Inn a try having not been there for about five years. Well, what a transformation....the previously ho-hum fare was replaced with an exciting and well varied menu with a set menu option for the cost concious.
Everything we had was delicious and beautifully prepared and the service was impeccable.....the welcome was warm, the real ale perfectly kept, and everyone was cheerful and helpful at all times. Well done!

We stayed for two nights in Mullion for a family get together. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. All the staff were so helpful and smiled all the time. Their honesty was wonderful. We accidentally left some money in the room and this was returned immediately.

Popped in for a meal at the weekedend as we were driving through.

Really friendly staff and were able to have table service. Good choice of St Austell ales. My partner had Chicken and I chose Rabbit. Both were cooked to perfection and enough to fill us up so we could not manage a pudding!

Will definatley be returning and using the accomodation.

Staff were reasonably friendly. Rooms were clean and large. Bed was a little on the small size & no shower in the en suite bathroom just a bath which would be problematic for some people.

Staying on a B&B basis and was well worth the breakfast! As a general comment the food was fantastic- locally sourced in the main with great flavours. The menu is quite limited though. Pub VERY popular locally so advise book your table early.

Definitely worth stopping in for a short stay to explore the Lizard Peninsula and very convenient if you're going to be using the Newton Equestrian Centre for a riding holiday.

My husband and I stayed at the Old Inn for three nights, as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, and visiting our daughter who works in one of the holiday parks in the area. Ours was a late booking, made by our daughter, and the staff were very helpful to her, even allowing her access to our room to decorate it with banners and balloons prior to our arrival.
The room was a family size one, and was large, clean, and had TV, and tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was a decent size, and was also spotlessly clean. My only complaint was there was no shower.
Breakfasts are well presented, well cooked, and the chef will cook anything you require. The staff are all pleasant, friendly, and very helpful, and the evening meals are also excellant.. All in all, this place is charming, and we will definately stay there again.I might just add, that the bed was very comfotable, and the rooms are quiet, and the quality of sleep therefore is high.
