The Nursery and Cafe are well worth stopping at. The food and drinks are very tasty after a long look around the nursery.

The ambience of the place is lovely, especially at Christmas time! The staff is very nice and the food very good. Take some time to stroll around the shop, which has a lovely atmosphere and very nice products.

Stopped by for lunch. No complaints at all, sausage and onion marmalade ciabatta was delicious. And bacon sandwich was enjoyed by my daughter! Lovely atmosphere and the young male serving the food was very polite. Felt that the young blonde lady was a little unfriendly/intimidating, not all that helpful, could try smiling! Shop itself was very Christmassy, the aroma was... More

Well signposted but off the beaten track in the midst of Duchy Estate land, rebuilt a few years ago with excellent car park, loos and a level patio nursery, showcasing plants suitable for the local area ie soil and coastal/sub coastal and river esturial, good quality but not cheap. Shop is currently geared towards Christmas with cards, special gifts etc,... More

My wife and I also visited the DoC Café on 7th November and had a similar experience to the previous reviewer. We were kept waiting for 20 mins and then had to stop a passing waitress to place an order. The two tagines arrived after a further 10 mins (the café was not exceptionally busy by this time) and both... More

We always love visiting the Duchy Nursery BUT today was a let down! We both had the Millionaire Shortbread cake.. it was not good at all. We both had very upset tummies afterwards. For the price the cakes and coffee need to be better and bigger cups! Hopefully will be better next time :(

got a tip off about this and well worth a visit, lovely selection of plants and local gifts, and a fantastic quality little restaurant / café, lovely choice, great info about source of foods, and best of all not, over the top on the prices either, all with a beautiful view over the neighbouring hills

I have been going to the Duchy nursery in Lostwithiel for the past 4 years, I have purchased some wonderful plants and received some useful advice from the staff who are very helpful and friendly. The restaurant is open from 11-4 and the food and service is second to none. The waitresses cannot do enough for you

Have frequented Duchy quite often, and most recently for a nice lunch on my birthday. As usual, the food was delicious, i had the goats cheese and fig salad which was so tasty i almost had another! I have never been disappointed by the food here, they have a fantastic selection, including a counter full of delicious cakes. I would... More
