The Norway Inn has now undergone a change of management. There are now four bedrooms available for those who wish to stay and having inspected them I can say that they are of the highest standard. The staff appear more cheerful under the new management and the decor has altered slightly. However, I cannot comment on the food as I have not tried it recently. Prices still seem way too high for food and for the accommodation too.

I didn't think i was possible, but the service in this place appears to have got even worse. Grossly overpriced food dragged out of the kitchen by disinterested staff. The pub does not provide the advertised service standards set out by the brewery. Complaints are met with stroppy attitude. St Austell needs to do something about this place.

This place has gone sadly downhill in recent months.

Still a St Austell brewery pub with all the beers you'd expect with that, and they serve a good pint of Tribute. Aside from that, it is a disaster with offhand, if not downright rude, service.

The restaurant section, in particular, is staggeringly overpriced. �16.50 for a fish main course is what I would pay at a good central London restaurant but neither the food nor the service at this place matches the cost. Had to wait *an hour* for main courses in a half-empty pub on a Monday night. Starter of scallops priced at �8.75. Vegetables have to be ordered extra (�3.50 per person) and consist of microwaved carrots. Garlic bread starter was two bits of burnt baguette.

A particularly charmless manager seems to have set the tone for the staff. Ordered a Carlsberg to be told by the barmaid: "It's off, that's why it has got a bag over it." Well, thanks for speaking to me like an idiot but the (plastic!) bag was over the Carlsberg on the *other* set of taps so how the hell was I supposed to know it was off completely? Orders for dessert were greeted with "We've got none of those left". No apology, no explanation of what *was* available.

Overall, this has moved from a favourite spot to a place to avoid. If you splash out on a meal in this area, do it in Rick Stein's (better service) or the Pandora Inn (better food) or the Old Quay Inn at Devoran (lower prices) instead.

Hopefully a drop in custom will force a much-needed change in management.

Nice atmosphere but stupid expensive for average food and barely average service

It may have won awards in the past but not the future but I doubt if it will again. Serving bland pub lunch meals at restaurant prices. Seasonal Vegetables are warm chips and peas. Waited for hours to be served then wished I wasn't. Local Food Champion of the Year award, I pity Cornwall for it..
