We read the reviews and did dive into this pub on the way back from a very cold and blowy walk to Poldhu and back again (in March). It is very close to the Old Chapel. We found it to be friendly, and tasty and acceptable food. Good size portions. Traditional, but fine. I remember the chips were to die for after coming in from the cold :-).
Having read some of the reviews we were slightly put off. However, as we were staying close by we thought we’d try it and were pleasantly surprised.
The service was very efficient and covid safety guidelines all adhered to. The food was good - my husband had mussels, which he said were excellent. Also prices were very reasonable. All in all we’re glad we gave it a try.
