It's a shame that you have had bad experiences at Helford River Sailing Club.
There is a new chef in now who seems very keen, the bartender is definitly an exception. Was he a younger lad or a chap in his early 30's with a beard?
I'm friends with the commodore at HRSC and she has no qualms with re-briefing any of her staff who don't show the club in a good light. She is most friendly and would welcome any feedback, positive or otherwise.
The stewardesses at HRSC do a brilliant and job and I have never known one of them to come across as anything but pleasant.

As you say such a shame.
Many an afternoon did I used to spend sat down by the water with a pint and a pasty/steak/pie watching the tide come slowly in then disappear again, before we decided it was time to sail back to Falmouth.
The place will remain good in my memories. Though sadly is sounds it's not the case in reality

Sadly the price of waterside land is so high and the returns from pubs so low that it must be very tempting to slap a few houses on the land and retire. The Tamar is now without a pub you can access from the water and I guess a lot of other places are going the same way.
One hull good, two hulls better.
We were in the Shipwright's a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed a very pleasant evening. We were served our food by a friendly and helpful girl and the bar service was prompt but nothing special. The situation is delightful and, on a sunny summer evening it's hard to better. I'd go back there for the location if nothing else. It would be a pity to miss it.

I was in the Shipwrights last year and remember the bar staff being quite friendly. It was quite late though, and I was a bit pissed so I might be remembering wrong.
We ate in the Shipwrights in July and had a very ordinary meal. Adequate service and an old fashioned menu, cooked to sixties standards. Not one to repeat.
Two years ago the waitress in the Helford River SC was a stunner. Sweet sixteen and knew exactly what effect she was having on old men every time she leant over!!
