“won't eat there again despite good service”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We were expecting good food here, based on other reviews but it was one of the worst pub meals I've ever had. There is good atmosphere, and the staff are very friendly, but I thought the food was pretty awful. I had fish and chips, and the fish had bones, and was a small portion compared to what you get in most pubs. The batter was nothing special either. But the worst thing was the "apple" crumble with cinnamon. It appeared that on peeling the apples, the fruit got thrown away and the skins put in the crumble - it was awful. They do local beers, but no really good ciders

Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Been visiting this pub for the past five years when visiting Porthleven ( at least three times a year )
Great food and ale every time. The landlord and lady always make you feel at home.
Finally won the Monday night quiz after 5 years.
Amazing views from the bar across the bay.

“Great food in a nice pub with a local atmosphere”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We went to the Atlantic Inn twice during our holiday and on both occasions the food was very good, sevice was good and the atmosphere was very welcoming from the locals. Sunday lunch is very good with huge cuts of beef. We have come here every year during half term for over 10 years and the landlady is lovely and always remembers us.

“Amazing food and very friendly”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

I have just returned from porthleven and have to review this pub. We ate here last night and what can I say.......amazing!!! I had crab aioli to start which was beautiful!!! So tasty and then mussells for main course, I could believe the amount of food that was piled on my dish, half the sea I think!!! They were honestly the best mussells I've ever tasted with a beautiful cream sauce and lovely crusty bread. As we ordered before half 6 we received a free bottle of wine. Our meal for 2 adults l, 2 courses and a child's 2 course meal came to roughly £50. Such good value for such good quality food. Such a pleasant and friendly atmosphere here, we visited most days for the odd drink as we stayed down the road, the landlady always remembered us and made a fuss of my 4 yr old too. Our family dog was always welcomed too!!!! We can't wait to.visit porthleven again and will most defo will be back to the Atlantic inn!!!!
