“A lovely location (both inside and out)” – this fifteenth-century, stone-built inn with garden is one of the better hostelries for a meal near touristy Padstow. “An interesting menu is well cooked and the open-fire cooking of some dishes seems to work well”. “Some tables are cramped, but it is an old pub…”

“Great pub, great location with a nice outside garden, good food and friendly service” are the simple virtues of this handsome stone-built fifteenth-century inn, serving local fish and meat, cooked on an open fire. The location means it attracts locals and discerning visitors heading inland from touristy Padstow and Port Isaac.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
