“Double Booking”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Firstly let me say didn't actually stay here. Couldn't stay here even though we had booked..... Double Booked. Firstly the Manager told me I had booked it for the following week. Then I found the email acknowledgment proving I had booked the right date which was shown to the manager. Then he changed the story and then blamed Laterooms.com. He did offer to find us other accommodation but we found our own. We won't try booking again. What a waste petrol.

My wife and I stayed here on the weekend of 6th July
We were a little disappointed with the reception we received upon arrival as the pub wasn't busy.
The room was very nice with a small en-suite and dual aspect windows overlooking gardens and the kitchen roof.
Beer was good with choices of real ales from St Austell Brewery
Food was fine
Overall a comfortable stay, friendly staff and well situated for the coastal path.

Room Tip: Number 5 on the top floor (double) was fine

We choose to stay at the Old Inn Mullion because it was on The lizard and right in the area that we wanted to explore. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, the rooms were ready for us and looked very clean, light and airy.
We dined in the restaurant each evening and found the food to be generally very good, the one exception being a steak which really was very tough. The menu is typically a pub food menu but with daily specials available, although these did not change each day. Breakfast was served between 8.00am and 9.00am and consisted of a choice of fruit juices, cereals, full English or variations. Poached or scrambled egg on toast was readily available. Service at both dinner and breakfast was excellent and the staff were, without exception very friendly.
Access to the rooms was either through the pub or by using the room key there was a separated entrance to the accommodation wing.The rooms were clean, light and airy, we were travelling as two couples so required two rooms. One room (3) was on the ground floor and was quite large with a sofa in the bay window. The bathroom was large with a bath and a walk in shower. The only negative things were lack of shelf space in the bathroom and the lack of mirrors, the bathroom had one small round mirror above the sink. The second room (5) was on the first floor and was slightly smaller, the bathroom did not have a walk in shower but had one over the bath. This room boasted plenty of mirrors and better quality furniture, although the TV was of the older variety.
The bar of the pub was a lively place with plenty of locals drinking there, the beer was good and there was plenty of choice of beers and lagers. Live music was provided on the Saturday evening in the bar.

Room Tip: Rooms 3 & 4 are on the ground floor just inside the front door which made access very easy. Room...

Visited here several times in May 2013, lovely pub, with excellent food and real ale, well priced with a good choice of menu dishes and daily specials. Great location and parking nearby. Suspect it would get really busy peak season and booking might be necessary.

As you drive through the one way system in Mullion you will pass the beautiful old church and on the left you will see the Old Inn. This is a stunning pub/restaurant/hotel with a thatched roof and plenty of places to sit outside. Every Sunday a group of locals get together to play guitars, mandolins and basically any other musical instrument people tend to bring along. The music is great and the people very welcoming, anyone can join in.
Food in the pud is good and the range of ales and cider is great, don't drink too much of the Rattler cider, lovely refreshing drink but has a bite in it...hence the name.
On a family holiday to Mullion we found the bar staff brilliant especially Josh and Lisa.
This pub is excellent for families, couples and is welcoming for dogs, every dog in Mullion seems to know the way to the Old Inn.
Vist, chill and enjoy!

Room Tip: Sorry we did not stay in the Old Inn, however my sister has and she said the rooms are charming.

Just thought I would pop in to the old inn as I had been promising myself I would give a breakfast a try.. Why did I not do this sooner? Freshly cooked to order full English at a very good price.. Proper flavoursome sausages and all cooked the way i like it... Service was excellent as I have come to find with the old inn, all in all top notch.
