Had a lovely coffee break here while visiting Polperro. Lovely coffee and Bakewell tart, staff very friendly and smiley which is always welcome! Quirky decor and loads to look at, would definitely return and recommend.

I don't think the chef can cook anything that's not boiled or grilled! I had an excellent steak but my husband's meal was awful - tomato soup that tasted as tho it was from powder mix and rubber sausages with no taste!

My partner and I were staying in Cornwall and visited Polperro about 4.30 one evening. You have to park and walk in-no real issue, it’s mainly car free and a very pretty walk. After sitting round the harbour, we decided to eat in the village...More
