As well as acting as a village local, this 16th century inn draws people in from many miles around because of the excellence of its food.
Seafood is the speciality, coming daily from the catch at St Mawes – although the menu offerings are wide ranging, and there should be something to satisfy all tastes.
Whilst menu's change a little daily, a Spring snapshot brought 'Game Terrine with Homemade Chutney & Toast'; 'Minted Pea Soup'; 'Salt & Pepper Chili Squid Salad'; 'Char-Grilled Scallops & Black Pudding Brochette' and 'Mushroom Risotto with Parmesan & Truffle Oil' (the latter two - also available as a main course).
Dishes such as 'Whole Grilled Cornish Lemon Sole'; 'Salmon Fillet Teriyaki with Soy & Ginger'; 'Roast Rack of Lamb with Mint Pea Purée & Red Wine Jus'; 'Dressed Crab' and 'Beer-Battered Cod Fillet with Tartar Sauce' might follow.
Puds, such as 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Caramel Sauce' and 'Chocolate & Raspberry Roulade' are there to tempt you at the end.
