Not sure why but you have the call buttons on the table and no one comes over,
Pressed 6 times and nothing!
Booked for six people set for 5 people,
Ordered drinks and didn't arrive for a good 15/20 mins, but ordered our food anyway, that arrived in good time....
Spilt a drink on the table and asked for a cloth and it got thrown at me not given to me.... Or even offered to get it cleaned up just made us do it....
Ordered 3 more drinks that still took a good 10/15 mins to do at this point & pub was quite....
Pressed button for the bill and still no one came to us.... So we went to the bar instead.
Not sure why you have the call bells if you don't answer them and have to go to the bar anyway.
Did order a steak and they did get mine n my sisters mixed up but food all in all was absolutely amazing, just a shame service wasn't the best, sorry guys
I would recommend this place for food, but not for service I'm afraid.
The waitress was amazing… despite being busy she kept a cool head and was engaging and attentive 5 star service. The sharing starter was excellent as was the main course… no room for desert!
Usually a lovely experience with great food but this time our table for 2 was in a corner flanked by 2 large tables of 6 or more people who were all very noisy so much so that we couldn't hear ourselves talk!!!!
We asked to be moved to one of the other tables that were empty but were told that they were booked!
We left without eating what a very disappointing experience .
The staff were apologetic but that didnt help us! We usually visit this inn when holidaying in the area but may not do so again such a shame
Lovely pub food, service was quite slow and had to ask a couple of times, understandable due to low staffing everywhere at the moment. Quite loud in the bar area where we sat but to be expected! Staff were great
We arranged to meet up with two friends who were staying in Cornwall. We booked the Lanivet Inn as it had outdoor seating and was dog friendly. We had a really nice time and all enjoyed our meals, apart from one of us who thought the Jambalaya wasn't that brilliant. We were under a giant canvas which had lighting and gas heaters were just being installed. The service was good and the whole thing was very enjoyable.
Lovely pub, great food and lovely staff! Couldn't fault it!
Very helpful staff re food allergies, waitress wearing a mask all the time which was much appreciated. We’ve eaten there several times and the food is always good quality and very generous portions.
Minus what we asume was the manager, the staff were grumy and rude. The menu we saw online was compltey different to the one we had to chose from. We had a roast, it's cost £9.95 each and was definitely not worth it. There was barley any vegetables and what we did have was not fresh or not properly cooked. Such a shame as the reviews we saw made it sound great and we were really looking forward to our meal. So disappointed.
Our first time at Lanivet and probably our last. We looked at the reviews beforehand so were surprised at what was presented. Booked a table for Sunday Roast told wait would be 1 hour. Decided to wait as we were hungry. 5 minutes later told it would be only 30 minute wait eventually food came out around 50 minutes from order. Plenty on the plate but vegetables were only hardly warm. Very large Yorkshire pudding is the eye catcher but if I'm honest not very tasty appeared left in oven too long. Vegetables overcooked and parsnips steamed not roasted! Why? My pork was quite fatty. Not the best advert for locally sourced meat. Good quality pork these days is very lean. As ex- caterers we were disappointed at what was presented for our consumption. It appeared to be give them quantity rather than quality.
Good choice of vegetarian food
Portions are big and quick service
Excellent food & generous portions.
Willing to vary menu as one dish should have come with salad but not a problem to change to veg instead.
The only disappointing aspect that I had to wait a long time for drinks to be replenished at the table however this could be down to them being quite busy.
Big portions, friendly staff, reasonably priced, and good selection of gluten free options. Would visit again.
Excellent service, great food and reasonably priced
Food was excellent drinks and the first course very prompt. Menu came fir sweets but no one came back to collect order for over half and hour which was such a great shame. We managed to get a person and the sweets took another half an hour before we got them but the food was lovely.we realise how hard times are at the moment and we are local so will definitely go again
The meal was excellent and service was spot on but our table was a little near to the bar so we had a little noise from that area our table was booked with the knowledge that it was our wedding Anniversary a quieter area would have been appreciated. All this taken we will book again for another meal and would recommend this pub to anyone
Lovely staff.warm friendly atmosphere.Great menu and food.
Excellent food, excellent service, will definitely be back
Great value. Hunters chicken and signature burger were excellent. Staff friendly.
Cannot recommend highly enough!
The hunters chicken was absolutely lovely. However everyone in our party really enjoyed their meals. Great service, great food. Lovely little pub.
After confusion over booking app they amended booking to 6 from 4. On arrival they informed us that kitchen was running late and meals did take s time to arrive, We all enjoyed our meal and the staff kept us up to date. Overall a very enjoyable experience. A good evening.
The service was outstanding. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was served quickly and the quality of the food was extremely good. We live in Dorset and some of our local pubs would benefit from sending their staff to the Lanivet for lessons!!!
Been to Lanivet Inn several times this year where the food is usually outstanding and good value. Yesterday we were the first served at 12 oclock and roast potatoes were only warm and we were disappointed with the meal.
Nice food plenty of choice …………………………………………………………..
Great fresh food arrived without any wait , helpful and pleasant staff , good pub atmosphere, very nice evening overall would definitely recommend.
Wonderful seafood. Very friendly. Efficient service
Can't fault it. Service, atmosphere and food is amazing.
The Katsu chicken was enjoyable - my husbands squid starter was lovely and the steak edible but not the best. My first 2 choices of pudding were not available and the strawberries snd cream was fairly tasteless unfortunately. My husband enjoyed the Proper Job beer and my Shiraz was beautiful. Overall a pleasant evening.
Friendly rapid accurate service, good food and generally generous helpings. The mussels were in an unusual and delicious soup of cream and ginger and lemon grass and chilli - yum!
Strawberries in cream come with a seriously generous helping of clotted cream.
Only slight disappointment was how little of the delicious crab meat was in the baked Crab, which the huge pile of potatoes could not make up for.
Prices are not pub cheap, but nor is the food. Table service is well delivered, to the old pub tables. Comfortable and unpretentious
Food is always delicious service is second to none so friendly nothing is too much trouble such an enjoyable experience 👍👍👍
Nice meal, lovely staff, a bit noisy for us. Seemed pointless having music competing with the noise.
The crab gratin was outstanding
Can’t wait to go again
Amazing toast, great atmosphere and excellent service
Been going here quote regulary for a few years (we live locally) excellent food, friendly staff and just a very good 'local'
Lovely place and setting, very friendly, helpful and efficient staff, super service and the food was excellent and they don’t stint on the portions, lovely atmosphere and wide selection of both food and drink.
Fantastic food at good price amazing choice with very friendly staff
Menus and table were filthy, the whole place seemed like it needed a clean!
Lovely birthday lunch. All staff were very friendly and helpful, with good knowledge of the dishes on the menu. Portion sizes are good.
Will certainly be returning.
Great service and food
Beautiful food, lots of choice and good portion sizes.
We booked and it was not clear that there was a limited menu on a Sunday. There was a widget on the table that allowed you to call for a member of staff, though we used this it never worked.
