We loved our dinner here! The food was delicious, the hostess and chef were delightful, and the dining room is light and fresh and appealing. It felt casual and elegant. A wonderful way to end our trip to Cornwall!

Only just discovered this place a couple of months ago and I can’t recommend this restaurant enough. This is top end food at a bargain price. Affordable three course meal cooked with love and care. The service is also impeccable and friendly.

This is definitely one of our favourite lunch venues in Cornwall. They never fail to delight with mouthwatering dishes. The cheese souffle is to die for - that needs to be a permanent fixture on the menu! It's a simple but stylish venue in a...More
