Good food. Good staff. However the boss was extremely rude to other customers, blaming them for orders he had messed up himself! What happened to "the customer is always right"? He treats staff appallingly. The poor girls are running round doing everything while he stands...More

This has been a successful business for thirty years and more. On the fringe of the Cattedown light industrial area and also close to the main roads from the east into the city of Plymouth it offers an excellent all day menu and is very popular amongst a lot of tradesmen and visitors to the area. It features on national listings for blue collar fry up and sandwich bar. Given the several other listings already on Tripadvisor for this area, Curnow's well deserves an entry.
