Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Our favourite pub-with-rooms, it truly lives up to its motto of “simple things done well”,’ say regular Guide correspondents in 2017 of the Inkin brothers’ ‘excellent’, family-friendly spot in rugged west Cornwall, minutes from the cliff edge. ‘There’s a great atmosphere’, encouraged by ‘friendly staff who clearly enjoy their work’; with manager Chris Curnow, ‘they create a relaxing place in which to chill out’. ‘Splendid’ bedrooms look out to sea or sheep-grazed moors. They’re simple but full of character, with fresh flowers, local art, a Roberts radio, Welsh blankets and all-natural toiletries. No TV – instead, a library of paperbacks to flip through. In the popular bar and restaurant, join the locals choosing from the ‘marvellous range’ of drinks and ‘fantastic food’. ‘Our lunch and dinner menus had a good choice of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. A plate of pheasant came with a parsnip tagliatelle to die for; we also enjoyed tasty, succulent monkfish.’ Plan guided foraging walks or simply head out, into the wind, on the Coastal Path. ‘Tremendous-value’ package offers are worth checking out.
