It was great; we had carvery and the meats were cooked well with sausages and lots of vegetables to choose from. I’d only add that a antibacterial dispenser placed to put on hands before touching the ladles to put your food on the plate. I didn’t see one, if there was one then maybe pointing it out and telling us to put on hands when in line for carvery. Really enjoyed the meal and lovely staff.

We have missed you all so much and couldn't wait to come back. On Saturday we brought two family members who had come up from Cornwall for the weekend and specifically asked me to book a table for 4 at the Island Pool as they had enjoyed the food and the ambience last year. We all enjoyed our meals - 3 of us the carvery and 1 the steak. The safety precautions were very good, as was the menu meal and bar service. My visitors (Niece and husband from Cornwall) work at The Heron Inn in Truro, which is know far and wide for its Food and service, so one can only guess that they know a special diner when they've eaten at one. To add to this review I should also let you know that they insisted we all came for breakfast at 9.30am the next day. I found myself once again booking on line at midnight. To eat at the Island Pool is always something to look forward to as the food, the staff, the setting and the meal and bar service are excellent. See you soon and Thank you.

Lovely food and lovely service, liked how the chef came over to us to say other meals would be coming out so I could go and fetch my carvery, which was really nice. Bar and waiting staff were lovely and polite and patient with my two kids who couldnt decide! 10/10 all round. Thankyou

We booked a table for 2 a few weeks prior to visiting. When arriving we were the only table, a completely empty restaurant. Instead of calling and cancelling our table we were welcomed with a friendly manager, hot fresh food, and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Such a shame for the local business, but I’m glad our custom was welcomed and valued. Wonderful carvery, quick service.
