We arrived early as last time service was a bit slow. However, today they were quiet so we had a great deal of good service. Three of us chose the Roast Beef and one chose the pork loin. WOW WOW WOW! What fabulously succulent beef - beautifully cooked and so moist and mouth wateringly good. Roast potatoes were fabulou too... More

Well, I am disappointed that I cant give this place 6 stars. I think I have found the best place to eat in Cornwall so far. We went for my wife's birthday and were very impressed as soon as we walked in the door. The staff were vey attentive and friendly, I got the impression they were genuinely nice people.... More

We ate here 3 times during our stay and every time it offered something different. The menu is constantly changing as they always use local produce. Every dish blew me away!

We had a lovely private booth just my hubby and I and it was like no one else was in the room. We went for the three course meal and we were both blown away!

We had dinner here while staying at Lewinnick Lodge. We loved the food, although a bit pricey. My husband had the venison. Super nice. I had the cod, this was the best cod I had in ages. Finally not fried, fatty, but beautifully prepared poached fish with veggies. Unfortunately all curtains were closed, so no sea view.

The staff and the location are faultless. Fantastic wine list and the Expresso Martini with a twist is a must have. The breakfasts are lovely, different choices available everyday. Dinner was a slightly disappointment, felt fussy, good ingredients don't need over complication. Overall a very relaxing and enjoyable break.

We came here for a special evening, and didn't regret it. A very interesting menu, with beautifully presented and truly delicious food. A decent wine list too. Expensive by local standards, but not ridiculous.
