Now and again we choose to go somewhere different, and this time we went to the Princess Pavilion Garden room and Restaurant, very very nice, good food, good service, and lovely views of the gardens, would recommend it, in fact we are going again today.

I lived in Falmouth many years ago and knew the Pavilion well. It is a long time since I last visited and what a difference! The gardens and bandstand remain the same but the bar / restaurant areas have been transformed. The food was excellent....More
