We have driven to this pub before and its not a relaxing drive once you get away from the main road although once you get there its worth it, a beautiful area. This visit we got the ferry across from Helford Passage and thats much more fun.Only had a snack and couple of drinks, all good.Sat outside down on the edge of the creek and its a wonderful location especially when the tide is up,fabulous views.

We recently had a superb meal in this pub located right on the riverbank of the river Helford. Not a huge menu but very nicely presented food. We both chose the fish and chips and were not disappointed. The fish was huge and so fresh
Seek out this place. You won’t be sorry.

Called in here today initially for a coffee with my daughter and baby granddaughter. However, when we saw the food coming out to other guests we decided to order lunch too. I had a small bowl of mussels and my daughter had the bruschetta and hummus. We both thoroughly enjoyed the food and would highly recommend this pub. It looks like they may also do pizzas at night or on other occasions. Beautiful location by the water.

Best pub in Cornwall - could well be! Location can be a bit fraught by car if relying on Sat Navs but well worth the effort. The pub is a bit of a short walk from the car park but is situated right on the shore of the beautiful estuary with excellent views.

The service was outstanding from friendly and helpful staff, the food was well cooked and tasty and the price paid seemed very reasonable considering the location. Worthy of mention is the toilets which are probably the cleanest ever used in a pub and also the best stocked with those little extras that just compliment the overall experience. Well done - a real pleasure to visit.
