A St Austell house.

A very old pub with an intruiging internal layout as there are lots of nooks and crannies in which to sit and drink or to have a meal.

Had the complete range of St Austell beers on tap at time of visit except Mena Dhu their dark stout. Proper Job in good condition. Warm welcome and pub full of a mix of visitors and locals. somewhat more expensive than other nearby pubs, but assume this represents the fact that that there is a large summer increase in population and prices are set to match.

Good old-fashioned authentic pub atmosphere, with the restaurant area divided into lots of smaller rooms/alcoves. Service very good. The only beer I tried was Tribute, which was well kept. The food menu is a little dull, with a distinct lack of vegetarian dishes, but my rump steak was first-rate.

Visited Saturday lunchtime, very pleasant. St Austell beers (I had Dartmoor) seemed fine. Proper pub, this, not like the Mounts Bay down the road. Recommended, though don't know about food.

Had a decent pint here, and would like to have stayed longer, but the bus was due!

Just spent 2 lovely weeks in Mullion and used this as our "local". It's apparently under new management but not sure since when. Found it an excellent, welcoming pub. Good beer and very friendly staff. On our 3rd visit I realised they had jugs so asked for my pint in one. From then on as we walked in the barman automatically went for a jug. We were treated as locals. Food may not be vast in its range but the time we ate in there it was very good.

Nice enough place although a bit pricey and very crowded on a Sunday evening. However, served by two different bar staff and both were very generous with the head, so ask for a top up.

We saved a visit to this pub for the last night of our family holiday - unfortunately the holiday was ruined by the memory of this evening. A barman who couldn't tear himself away from talking to his mates to serve us, and, when we dared to complain about this to our waitress, a visit to our table by an extremely hostile chef who made our children cry and embarrassed us so much we left without eating our meals. One to be avoided.

Visited 5 to 6 years ago, food was excellent. Revisited August 2009, what's happened to the good food? All staff friendly and helpful, good drinks, but the food is letting the pub down, it is overpriced, my homemade steak and kidney pie was just gristle and kidney, who the hell makes it? The young girl was very apologetic and embarrassed when I took the pie back, and gave me an alternative. The stroganuff or whatever its called was as previous review. The tables need a good clean, there was thick grease underneath the table and in the cracks where table extended. Will definitely return, but will check food quality before ordering food.

The wild mushroom 'stroganoff' was microwaved- from- frozen utter tasteless c*** as was its accompanying saffron rice.So tasteless I sent it back via a passing waitress.
Nobody apologised or bothered to ask what was wrong.
Was offered something else but wouldn't risk it after what was quite the worst offering I have ever had in any pub,and I've had the jacket potato in the Noughts and Crosses in Polperro and shared the '2 mains for 7.99' in a Weatherspoons.
Stayed to enjoy my lovely glass of a good shiraz and to allow my husband to finish his meal,he'd been driving for 5 hours and was ravenous.His fish and chips he found to be average and overpriced.
I wasn't offered a refund but did receive one when I asked.
Good atmosphere,friendly staff,appalling meal.
Won't be going back.

Enjoyed a couple of pints of Black Prince in the comfortable bar. A friendly and pleasant place. There was a band playing on Sat night so it got busy but not uncomfortably so. Well worth stopping if you are passing.

Nice welcome and a nice pint of Tribute. Then a good lunch another pint of Tribute and on our way. A lovely way to spend a lunchtime

Classy, traditional pub - very well maintained dark-wood interior, largely given over to serving food, but with a cosy bar area on one side. The food and beer is good and the service excellent, but get there early as it's very popular. There is a seated outdoor area but it's literally by the side of the road - not very picturesque, but it is a very quiet road!

Still as busy as ever, good beer and good food. They now serve food from 5.00pm - 9.00pm which can be usefull.

Good food, good ale, good service, need I say more! you can even sit in the fire place! however through no fault of its own it does tend to get a bit busy in the summer.

This is always a port of call when visiting this part of cornwall. Staff are always polite and the food.... well who could ask for anything better on a warm Cornish evening in the beer garden especially with a pint (or two) of the local beer.
In a word FANTASTIC.

Situated behind the church, the Old Inn is an older style pub with several different rooms inside - most of which are non-smoking. Fabulous home-cooked food available at lunchtime and 6-9pm in the evening. Well kept real ale is available - Sharp's Doom Bar and Skinners Cornish Knocker are regular beers apparently, with other occasional guest. I went here 5 nights in a row to eat and drink - it would have been more but my holiday came to an end.
