Wanted to dine at Mackerel Sky but it had just shut down - one of the staff clearing up the place recommended Mr Billy's round the corner and we popped in. Have to say their crab soup was excellent and hearty and the ladies running the place were so friendly, it ended up being a very lovely experience. The place... More

Mr Billy's is always reliably good; Tasty food, decent coffee, excellent selection of tea and we have always found the service good and the atmosphere welcoming.

We chose the crab soup from the specials board, what a fabulous soup it turned out to be, very flavoursome served with hot bread. What is not to like.

Interesting cafe, with a range of seating and lots of choice of tea. Had a delicious crab soup and decent cup of coffee. The service was very friendly. I will be back😊

But also a really good tea and coffee shop where you can get expert help selecting the correct blend for you.

Crab sandwich - Newlyn white crab on brown, side order of olives and large americano with extra shot and cold milk on the side. Table 5, soft chairs. Nice young lady server. Attractively arranged cafe alongside walkway off main street in town centre. Not my first choice for lunch, but chosen because others closed.

The range of tea is amazing. There's a choice of seating: sofas which take some getting out of, especially after cream cakes, or more traditional dining variety. It is often busy.

The food was lovely and the atmosphere was calming and peaceful! Will be returning again! The choice of tea and coffee was phenomenal, I never knew there were so many.

Having walked past this place for months now, I wrongly thought it was just another Cornish tea shop with tiny front window, but on entry its long narrow frontage belies a much larger interior. We ordered breakfast sandwiches which were very good. The service wasnt the fastest but then we probably rush around far too much and it was lovely... More

This has become a regular haunt for special lunches in the town. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service friendly, and the food - fresh. The menu is not large but varied with specials added taking into account locally sourced products in season. The local ingredients and attention to detail have resulted in excellent meals on every visit - from the... More
