There was a sign outside boasting an open log fire, yet on a relatively mild winter's day we found the inside to be very chilly, with no fires lit, and most customers keeping on their coats.

I sympathise with pubs having to be family-friendly, especially during holiday times, and this one certainly is, but for anyone wanting a relaxing pint of the well-kept St. Austell's it's a disappointment. Continental kids seem to be generally more tranquil in mixed-age surroundings than British ones. (I partly blame milk chocolate, which is not easy to find over the channel, but which British kids constantly whinge for and crave).

Although the beer was well-kept, on account of the fridge-like temperature of the whole pub, it was served far too cold for my tastes.

We didn't try the food, though it did seem to be picking up the Padstein baton and running with it: good luck to them on that point.

We left after one: even with our outdoor clothes on you can't sit still in a chill like that for long. I expect many others did too, and plenty of turnover was lost for the sake of a quid's worth of heating bill.

If a pub should avoid one thing, it's being cold.

Popped in for a quick pint while on the way over the road as place seemed quite empty. Strange, I thought as this place is normally packed with sightseers hoping Ricky will be propping up the bar. However, every free table had a large RESERVED sign on it, so walked straight out again!

Proper Job (3,25) was ok as was the staff. Shame it was empty on a sunny Wednesday.

Another pub with St Austell only but the full range and seemed pretty well kept.
Worth a visit and the food was decent too but keep going to the Golden Lion for more beer variety.

A lovely traditional warm and friendly pub ......... well it was! We visit the place everytime we are in Cornwall, but this year we found a new landlord in situ. Obviously any change of tennant brings a change of atmosphere, but the London Inn had definately gone downhill quite dramatically. Actually the landlady was everything you would expect in terms of customer service, it was the landlord himself that was the problem. "2 customers here want serving" says she. He proceeds to blank us and start tidying up the chiller cabinet. "Do you do accomodation" we asked. A sharp "yes" was the reply (the last landlady took us straight up to veiw a room, explained the tarrif, advised on how early to book etc, etc). To be fair, it was his first May Day, (the most hectic weekend of the year) and he was probably feeling the stress, but in a customer facing role you really have to put yourself above all that and ensure the paying public are wanting to return time and time again. Hopefully by this time next year he will have settled in. Last year I would have given the pub an 8.5, this year its a 5
