Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing food and fantastic service! The tasting menu was delicious from start to finish, a particular highlight being the free dived scallops. The service was impeccable, nothing was too much trouble and the staff were all really friendly. We had some excellent wine recommendations which...paired with our food perfectly.More

We came for a special lunch on a weekend in Cornwall and Outlaws did not disappoint. We had the oysters, followed by some of the most amazing food we’ve had in years. The quality of the food, presentation and imagination was amazing. However the extra...special element was the fabulous service. The team are just amazing! I had the cheese for desert and I’m not a fan of goat cheese so left that on my plate when the waiter appeared with an extra piece of Brie saying he didn’t want me shortchanged on cheese! Such a wonderful leisurely and delicious lunch - and I forgot to mention - the view is stunning!More

We visited the restaurant as part of a 2-night stay at the Guest House opposite. The tasting menu was amazing with some unusual and new dishes that we’d not experienced elsewhere. A wonderfully perfect evening with great food, lovely wine and friendly service. Really hope...we can return one day.More

We had the best evening, from the cocktails to start to fabulous food that was different to anything we had eaten before, to the service and the wine. We loved every minute & would love to go back one day.

sensational dining experience. Our second time with Nathan Outlaw's albeit it the first time in Port Isaac, the last time when he was in Rock. That was a lovely evening too. This time, just like the last, the taster menu was out of this world...and the service top-notch. I was taken here by my wife for my birthday and what a treat it was. A lovely spacious dining area overlooking the North Cornwall cliff tops, perfectly paced service. Definitely the best dining experienceMore

Having eaten in the Fish kitchen with a superb menu, we wondered just how the New Road menu would compare ? It is fantastic the way Nathan and his team put together such creative menus. The service is incredibly friendly and the whole team are...a delight.... our only regret is that we don't live closer! .... but for a special occasion it was worth the 400 mile round trip !More

What a very special experience. Unique flavour combinations of varying species of seafood served in really imaginative ways.

I simply cannot fault anything about our lunch at Nathan Outlaw’s New Road restaurant. The welcome was warm and friendly, the service just right with a good balance of being approachable and not stuffy, unlike some restaurants at this level. The food was flawless, interesting...and it’s great to see that it’s all locally sourced. I would be happy to return any time.More

Visited midweek in the evening for the taster menu, v quiet with only 3 other tables occupied all evening, friendly meet and greet, no choice offered and all 6 courses (except pud) were fish, our favourites being the beautifully smooth and tasty mussel pate and...the red mullet nage. We could not fault the food, all v tasty, well presented and we left comfortably full. The meal did take about 4 hours but we had a lovely evening, many thanks, we will return.More

An absolutely fabulous meal cooked by Nathan Outlaw and his team. I find it impossible to fault in any way, from arrival and welcome to carefully boxed petit-fours to take away. The tasting menu was beautiful and professionally explained by staff. Throughout, I felt our...custom was appreciated and that's a big deal for me. So many highlights, but I'll mention only one - turbot in peppercorn hollandaise. How can a chef create a dish that allows strong flavours such as those to permeate in their own right, and not dominate to the exclusion of others? Just delightful.More

We visited on recommendation, and although the food was very good, it didn’t meet our expectations. I love fish, it’s nearly always my first choice when dinning out, but by the fifth fish course I was longing for something different, maybe if there had been...a proper side order of vegetables it would have been different, but although each course was perfectly cooked, and pretty on the plate it just seemed too much. As to valve for money, we felt too expensive. Would we go again? No.More
