We had a fabulous stay! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and spotless! The fish and chips were the best I’ve had plus the steak on ‘Steak night’ was amazing! I would definitely go back!

The first evening of our hols. and called in for a drink. The menu was so mouthwatering we stayed for a meal and it was gorgeous. My friend ordered the halloumi burger and I the veg lattice, which was so delicious……along with the extra friendly series, the evening was a delight. Thanks all very much

Although we didn't stay at the Inn, we did eat there. The food was really good, and having a large area to sit outside really helped our relaxing day. My boys enjoyed the food as did I, the views were good but it was the quiet atmosphere and friendly service that topped off our trip.

We came there a little hungry and was greet with news no food is possible due to building works. But very friendly chef decided he will cook for us fish and chips. And it was one of the best fish and chips we have in Cornwall and Devon. So do not hesitate and go there when you in the area. All staff friendly so we will visit again when there
