As residents of Truro it's a bit far for us to go to Porthleven just to eat. However with the advent of The Square we are looking for any excuse to make the trip there for a first class lunch with some very nice wine. The lunch time special is very good value as well. Although it cannot compare with 15 at Watergate Bay for location(a place we have eaten quite often ) it certainly does for the taste of the food which we consider pretty important! So well done Jack and staff and hope you really get "on the map" as you deserve.

Just got back from our first visit for a family birthday meal.
We're a bit unsure when we saw it was empty but within minutes of arriving the place was filling up. Despite this the staff dealt with the rush impecably. All our food was high class and served to perfection. The choice is admirable. Try the steak or the rabbit. You won't be sorry.
Full marks to everyone there for making our night memorable.
We will be back very soon.

We had a two course meal, I had sardines and pheasant which were very good and my wife had pâté and rib eye steak also very good. The waitresses were friendly and efficient and the decor is all fresh and new. Only one small annoyance were the lights above the table have bulbs that are brighter than the sun and actually you can see out of the corner of your eye all of the. Just need to change the bulbs to soft ones and this place is perfect.

Dined here Tuesday night and had a very good meal. The service was very good. I started with sardines, two large sardines that melted in the mouth, followed by Porthleven line caught sea bass, on a bed of greens, with roasted parsnips. The only minor negative was it was also with wild mushrooms which were missed and brought separately a couple of minutes later. My wife started with some ling scampi which was fantastic and also had the sea bass. She made the error of having the chocolate dessert which was three types of chocolate which even with the kids help struggled to finish. Worth a revisit definitely.
