Well we did return to the area, and wow, what a difference a year makes.

The beer is pure St. Austell, which is not to my taste so I had a pint of the Symonds Founders cider. Unfortunately, the flavour had been frozen out of it. I said in my last review that the food prices were a couple of pounds more than average, they are now about four or five pounds over and the quality has dropped.

This pub has been struck off the "Return to" list.

Shame, as it is in a great location and still very dog friendly.

Excellent pub. A little out of the way but definitely worth the effort in looking for it.
The bar is split into three areas, four if you count the large garden, ALL very dog friendly.
I had a couple of pints of St Austell Dartmoor. It was OK, but I am not a fan of West country beers so it would be unfair of me to comment further.
The food is excellent. Priced a couple of pounds over the average, but well worth it.
A revisit when in the area is well and truly on the agenda.

I have been coming here for over 20 years on various holidays and it has always been good. Food is great but can be a bit expensive. Smaller portions are worth looking at because you do get a lot... Beer is the usual St.Austell ales... Could do with a guest ale...

Used this as a lunch stop on a walk from Mevagissey. Looks a bit non-descript from the outside but inside it's a real gem. Lots of room and a big garden too. Really nice menu, had a venison & juniper burger and a couple of pints of "Proper job", all excellent. Friendly staff too.

Lovey country pub with lots of beers, lots of food, superb atmosphere. Eat here when you're hungry to do it justice.
