The service was very poor. From the time we were seated for our meal, 8.45pm till we finished 11pm! Long wait between courses. Main course wasn't quite as described on the menu. I would give the whole meal event only 5 out of 10! Also I ordered a pot of tea prior to the meal, but they forgot to supply... More

Bodmin Jail used to be our favourite resturant a couple of years ago. After moving back to Bodmin we celebrated a birthday meal. Service was extremely slow and staff didnt want to be there. Food, well 2 meals were not eadable...the 2 vegetarian meals available were not imaginative at all. I will not be going back, the place looked and... More

Mrs R hasn't been here since she was at school, the rest of us have never been here, not sure why. Had a very good lunch in the restaurant - good food and friendly service. Aware of allergies too. Why can't all tourist attractions have restaurants like this? Enjoyed our tour of the gaol after lunch too, lots to see... More

Last came around 11 years ago and it was okay but did not use all the outstanding features and history of this impressive building. Now though it's fantastic. Lots of improvements and better use of the site covering history and showing the buildings at their best. There are apparently plans to regenerate the buildings into a hotel though keeping the...

My husband & I ate here after touring the jail. The restaurant looked posh so we thought it would be good. The food was terrible. My chips were undercooked & rock hard when I bit into them. The gravy had an odd smell & an even odder taste. I was unable to eat much. My husband had leek & potato... More

Went for a light bite after we had visited the jail and it was a very posh looking restaurant at a good price. The kids (and adults) ate all their food with no hesitation. The girl that served us was brilliant and very chatty when we went to pay, we all felt very welcome

Value for money was great. We got a delicious 3 course meal and a live magic/mind reading show for £25 each. I would have liked to be sat downstairs and got picked but I didn't this time!
