The Watermill

Was down Hayle way the other evening, visiting a friend in hospital, and a few of us went to The Watermill to eat afterwards. An 18th century corn mill and now a public house, you can see the working waterwheel up close and personal (through glass) as you go in the door.

There's a restaurant upstairs, but we sat in the 'informal' dining area downstairs, and ate from the bar menu. It's standard pub choice fare (and apparently never changes - even the specials!), but the cod in beer batter with chips and garden peas that I had was fabulous, really good quality fish, just the right amount and a very reasonable price (more so since we were treated by our dining companions - ahem!). Completed with a couple of pints of good local ale, (and despite VERY long waiting times at the bar) a jolly good time was had by all. Would like to go back again, and if it was a similar evening, to sit outside in the beer garden.
