Having discovered this place during a trip in March we made a point of returning. Lovely food, extremely generous portions, and very friendly service. Our dog was made very welcome too! One to visit on all our Cornish holidays.

Food and service here are excellent. From crab sandwiches with a salad to cream teas, there is something on the menu for everyone. Even if you just call in for a tea/coffee and toasted teacake you will be made to feel very welcome. The café...More
