Booked a table for 4 to eat. Arrived 5 mins before and had to wait in a queue to be seated. Very unorganised with few staff working and tables had to be cleaned and sanitised before we could sit down.
Only 1 member of staff running the bar which had a backlog for drinks orders.
Sunday food menu was poor with little variety to choose from.
We decided to eat elsewhere

15 min wait to take order, almost an hour wait for the food to come. Service was curt at best, at times even rude.

Food was wrong when it arrived - when I queried it, was met with the right words but an air of irritation that I’d queried it but it was rectified, of sorts. It turned out waitress didn’t know her roast meats and we worked out after the event she’d given the wrong plates to the wrong customer (which we’d tried to clarify at the outset). Food was also like warm and congealed - prob sat under a heat lamp for too long.... one meat portion was tiny and what was there looked like it had been ripped off the joint

We were overcharged - had to ask for a different person to get copy of the bill (which we weren’t given when we paid, which was upfront) to check this as we’d been assured it hadnt been the case.

Phone rang incessantly, no one answered - in fact, staff were told ‘ whatever you do don’t answer the phone’. Poor potential customers. Drove me mad.

Such a shame because we’ve eaten there a lot between lockdowns, and had some great takeaways and fab service in the past. It’s been our choice to eat out locally on many occasions.

I get that it’s busy, and stressful esp in COVID times and I sympathise. But everyone who’s read the news knew it was going to be heaving this half term week, so why the shortage of staff?? The customers aren’t an unwanted by-product of the job, they’re the reason for the job. We were keen to support local businesses now they’re opening up again but we have cancelled our booking for later in the week, so thats one less booking to cater for. We’ll give it a miss for a while. Such a shame.

Very lovely food, if you book online the table might not be enough seats as it’s located by a computer so maybe easier to ring to book

Food reasonable but peas and mushrooms on mixed grill cold. The music was too loud and not appropriate for a relaxed eating environment

We visited on saturday for a drink first before going for a meal booked else where.
When we arrived the lady who saw to us wasnt very welcoming in the way she spoke to us.
She showed us to our table which was upstairs. Said she would be back in a minute to take our order. This took longer than expected for her to come back therefore we ordered 2 drinks each as we were short on time.
20 minutes later we were still sat there with no drinks. Someone walked by and asked if we had been served so we explained weve been waiting 20 minutes and still hadnt had them.
He went to chase it up, came with them and was apologetic.
The atmosphere upstairs was very cold.... I know you have to keep it ventilated but I feel it was far to cold. We had to keep our coats on.
Also noticed that the table hadnt been wiped down before we were taken to it as it had salt on it and we were only there for a drink!

In fairness the place looks nice and reviews about the food seem good.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to experience it.
We booked 2 tables for lunch at 14.30 via the App and 10 of us drove from Padstow- only to find the kitchen stops serving at 14.30.
We were told that they hadn’t got the booking (even though it was confirmed by email and on the App).
The kitchen didn’t start service until 17.00.
Not good and does not encourage me to use Open Table in future.

Great pub, fantastic friendly staff. There was a good choice of dishes on the menu, lots of drinks on offer. This pub looks like it's really making an effort. To be dog friendly to is just brilliant. We are due to return to Wadebridge in June, we will def be returning.

Very slow service. Took 40 minutes before we got served. Considering there were at least 4 staff and only about 20 people it was unexpected. The staff were friendly however and food is always excellent.

This would have been outstanding in sure, if we could have had the Christmas menu which we were expecting. It was a hard menu to find but I did find it in the Facebook page, I also saw the message to book online at it is a new service which I dutifully did. At no point, either on the menu, or during the booking process, or in the text messages or emails received after booking for confirmation, did anyone as us to preorder!! I found out accidentally in the morning if it booking and when I rang I was told we would not be able to have anything from the Christmas menu, which was a huge disappointment as we had really only booked to eat there on the basis of that menu. However, we were able to have a festive platter to share which was good value and helped sooth our disappointment. Hopefully no one else will get caught by the unhelpful online booking system!!
