An excellent carvery, and a great venue!

When we spent Xmas in Sorrento, Italy, a couple of years ago, we very most fortunate to meet up with two lovely couples who travelled up to our overnight hotel with us. They both come from the Truro, Cornwall area. Den is a retired builder, with wife, Pam, and Bill is a retired GP, and wife, Lorna, a retired hospital sister. They're all lovely people and dad and I get on very well with them.
We've already had a couple of Saturday evening meals with them at the Halfway House Inn, Twowatersfoot, on the road from Plymouth to Bodmin, and not far from Trago Mills. This time we decided to book for their Sunday lunchtime carvery. It was a good thing that we booked, as we'd forgotten that it was Father's Day, and so it was especially busy. We met at 1.0pm (the pub is about halfway between Plymouth and Truro, with a large car park, so ideal for all six of us to meet up!

We had a lovely carvery and dessert afterwards, and eventually we got back to Plymouth around 4pm. The beef and turkey were lovely, as were the vegetables, and choice - much more interesting than your usual peas and carrots etc! We were so impressed that we've booked again in August! Although this Sunday had been particularly busy, apparently it's always like this each Sunday, as it's an extremely popular venue.

It's so easy to find, and the staff are most friendly and helpful - it's really worth a try, but don't forget to book in advance!
