A group of about 20 us had walked in the area and managed to get a booked table for lunch. We had a variety of meals and caused chaos as we queued. I had a jacket potato with cheese and beans. It was hot and a good portion and tasty. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was good.

Just stopped here for a coffee on a very wet day for walking. We have been before and the coffee was nice as it was before - but that's where the good points stopped. The coffee bill came to £5.20 for two black Americanos and I gave a £10 note to pay - well you'd have thought it was the... More

After having stood in line for 10 minutes whilst the server got the elderly lady's order wrong 3 times, and the lady after that's order wrong, we were told that the kitchen was closed for hot food. It was 231pm. According to the server sometimes the kitchen closes at 2 or 215 or 230 dependant on the day. If it's... More

Not sure if this has changed owners but visiting today (and we've been loads before) was awful £28. For 2 coffees 2 slices lemon meringue pie. Liver and mash and a ham and cheese paninii. Paninii was £6.75 for what was no more than a small finger roll toasted cheese not melted and tasteless. Lemon meringue pie - no flavour.... More

2 paninis containing brie and 1 slice of bacon, that didn't look or taste like they had been on a grill although the brie was extremely melted (maybe microwaved)...2 latte coffees that tasted like filter coffee with a little hot milk added...one size of coffee on offer which in my opinion was small... £19.00. Relaxed service with a hint of... More

Carnon Downs Garden Centre is a fascinating place to go. As this is a review of the Restaurant I'll start with that. Great variety of food. Tempting cakes and mid morning/afternoon snacks but also a delicious menu for lunchtime mains meals. Good value for money and all in a restaurant with 180degree views out over a Cornish Valley. If you... More

I visited mid morning during the week. As the cafe was quiet, service was pleasant and food quickly served. The downside is the poor quality of food. I ordered a bacon bap and coffee. The bap was cheap white bread with no taste. There were 2 slices of back bacon which were okay but nothing special. The bill came to... More

Just had a roast beef dinner with my wife. ! The small amount of vegetables and Yorkshire pudding were frozen and the beef was drowned under a gallon of gravey. Overall very poor and not worth the£9:25. Don't waste your money like I did !!!!
