Was extremely disappointed. It’s clear you need a dog to get any attention here. A family of 5 were just inconvenient. The chef came out to cuddle a dog, in his apron which was not changed, (can’t confirm if hands were washed) Won’t be returning.More

A lovely place for breakfast, we certainly enjoyed the Full Cornish Breakfast plus a large pot of tea! (With nice big cups) Perfect location for sitting outside in the morning sunshine, enjoying breakfast or lunch. Very friendly and great service. Thank you.
