“Another fab visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

On this occasion we visited the Polgooth for Sunday lunch, fabulous mixed roast, delicious dessert (cranachan - I'd never tried this before, sublime!) and live music in the garden after lunch. A perfect Sunday. We'll be back again soon!

“A firm favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

We eat here four or five times a year and have never had a bad meal. There's always a good selection of ales, the staff are friendly and efficient and the excellent standard menu supplemented with a varied specials board. Would especially recommend the fish pie!

“Cornish gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Had a light snack; sandwiches, not your bulk standard, lovely hand cut bread and dressed salad garnished with vegetable chips. I had the homemade fishfinger sarnie, a plate full of excellence!

“lovely family party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We had a fantastic evening out, good food, good beer, good friendly service. They coped well with our large party (about 23 of us I think) and was all organised and delivered to our tables in prompt style, especially as it had been cooked to order. We shall return again, although probably with a smaller group.

Dear Arfersweet,

Thank you for your kind review, we do appreciate your comments regarding the service we gave your large table. As you appreciated, it is a difficult task to send out large quantities of freshly prepared meals and keep the whole pub satified at the same time.

So glad we impressed and that you will be returning
Regards
Alex & Tanya

The fish pie has been a firm favourite for a while and will be a main stay on our menus.
