Restaurant

“Fantastic food at a reasonable price. The Twice Baked Newlyn Crab soufflé is simply amazing! Also try the local sparking wine from Polgoon - very nice and sold by the glass. Make sure you book in advance as it is very popular.”

“Lovely restaurant/bistro. Nice staff, great ambience, and the food is always very good. The car park is small, but there is a public car park next door. Walk into the village after your meal, it's a picturesque delight.”

“Stunning location and good food. They also have another pub on the north coast near Zennor (St Ives way) called The Gurnards Head. Both serve excellent food - but again, book in advance as they're very popular.”

Pub

“A warm welcome, well kept beers, good gin selection and great food - the fish pie is my favourite. It is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where dogs are allowed in the bar. Food served in the evenings until around 8.30. It gets very busy so you might want to book a table in the restaurant - same menu and prices but you are guaranteed a seat! Dogs are not allowed in the restaurant part though. ”
