Being not to far away from our house must say this is our favorite local restaurant. We have been coming here several times for Sunday lunch and never been disappointed. Very quality food with great service. Excellent value for the money.

The food isn't really French but probably has French overtones to it. There is a menu available on their website. See this link if it works or search for Couches Great House in Polperro and you should find it. regards. Eddie.
