No shows are a real issue in our industry, we understand plans change and that is no problem at all but please do let us know in order that we can offer your table to another party.

    Well, we are in the 21st century so I'm prempting a reply. The menu on the website albeit a sample menu was vastly superior to what was actually on offer, it was the website that tempted myself and my partner to book for food. Partner had a pasta dish, way ro dry at the end of meal partner asked if meal was OK, pointed out it was too dry no feedback or apology, main issue website tempts you to book on the basis of menu on said website but on seeing actual menu choice limited and very disappointing. Won't be back.

    Excellent service from start to finish from all the staff who served us. Food was delicious & well presented. Nice to have vegetarian & vegan options as well as options to add meat or cheese to those. The 'Buddha Bowl' in particular was fantastic! Booked twice when staying on holiday in the area & can recommend.

    Some food was good (steak and Guiness pie and onions rings were excellent) but the Camembert was undercooked and the churros raw on the inside. Expensive for average pub food. Excellent service, friendly staff.

    pie was ok, and chips were/onion rings were nice. however, curry of the day (vegetarian) was made out of the vegetarian tagine dish- poor curry flavours. service was good, and a nice atmosphere, but wouldn't go for food again - NB have previously been last year and food was great then ether-shame.

    Proper pub food served promptly by a smiling waitress - what more could you want? Well we also enjoyed the fish catch of the day which was not overpriced. Our only gripes were that the music was rather loud so people had to talk above it. There was also a dog that barked every time another dog arrived - annoying. But I doubt if he is there every night.

    Busy Friday night. We were down in Cornwall for the week for a holiday and just managed to get a table for 5 people and one dog (they’re dog friendly!). Staff were so attentive and polite and the food was amazing, could not fault! Portion sizes were huge and the value is great! Looks old from the outside but lovely fresh decor on the inside. Even had a pool table we had a game on! Would definitely visit again when down in Newquay.. thanks so much for ending our last night on holiday with such a lovely meal!
