The whole experience was generally OK. Food, service, surroundings, price, all just ‘OK’. There are better places to eat nearby.

We are here several times whilst staying in Portreath and whilst all meals were good the Sunday roast was fantastic. Meat, vegetables, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding were cooked to perfection. Service was friendly and efficient. All in all a great experience.

My fiancee and I decided to try the Bassett Arms on the final night of our holiday in Portreath. OMG why did we wait until the last day!! He had the seafood stew and I had the crab fish cakes, the portions are plentiful and that's from a large rugby playing Fijian who can eat most people under the table. We have eaten seafood all over the world from Bermuda, Venice to Fiji and I tell you the Bassett Arms is right up there, seafood so fresh it's practically still swimming. It's a definite must try even if you are not a seafood fan, the meat dishes also looked fabulous. Five stars all the way. Book to avoid disappointment

Terrific steaks again last night, eight of us (plus two) wanting them cooked differently all spot on served by happy, cheerful staff. What more could we ask for? Thank you x

Just went to the Basset Arms on the off chance of getting Sunday lunch. They soon found us a table and settled us down with drinks and a menu. Even though they were quite busy the food arrived quickly. I had the Roast beef, which was beautifully tender and there was a lot of it. The Roast potatoes were wonderful, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle and the rest of the vegetables were also cooked as we like. My wife had the Roast gammon which was just as good as the beef. The drinks were excellent as were the coffee. Great food, great drinks, great staff and excellent staff. Can recommend this place for anyone looking for a great Sunday lunch.
