“Lovely pub, decent food, good service”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

The decor and location are great, with easy/free parking nearby. The old 13th century features of the building are nicely maintained so the atmosphere is nice. Food is good, but not amazing, with friendly service.

“Cornish pubs in 1980”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We went to eat there as a trip down memory lane having last been here 39 years ago and had a drink first to see what is what like. Very unfriendly and not a single acknowledgement from staff. Even took glasses back to bar and not so much as a murmur. This is a pub for locals and reminds me of pubs in Cornwall in the 1980's. folks from around here aren't from around here. Disappointing. Needless to say we didn't eat here.

“authentic inn”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

You could imagine this being a smugglers retreat, just a few yards from Ouaisne (pronounced Waney) beach and reached via a winding country lane. Local food and good ales, also speciality cocktails
