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.

We had an absolutely amazing lunch here. With a tough crowd to cater for (two kids under 4 and a gluten and dairy allergy) it’s hard for us to find somewhere to eat and it not be a stressful experience. However The Canteen at Maker...Heights was an absolute winner. The food was incredible. They didn’t even flinch when I asked what I could have with a gluten and dairy free and were so helpful. I ended up have the bubblecake which was delicious. There was a well stocked kids play section as well with toys and books, perfect for my 3 year old and 1 year old. The staff were so helpful and lovely with the kids. It was such a wonderful place to experience we will definitely go back.More

Such an unexpected restaurant. On the top of a hill, in a renovated Second World War nissen hut, they serve tastey, locally produced, beautifully presented food. It has a very low key and friendly team serving and you can watch the chefs at work in...the open kitchen as you place your order. They close at 16.00 each day as they don’t do an evening service. It’s really worth seeking out The Canteen.More

What a find. First day in Cawsand and came across the Canteen. Dogs thrilled with bespoke ‘sausages’ and our spring veg and cheese muffin and full English utterly faultless - and yes then there’s the view. A must see and will be back later in...the week for pizza. Staff exceptional. Ali & Simon + 2 NorfolksMore

Wonderful food and service, reasonably priced ..well done! Have been several times now but my only thought is I wish they wouldn’t always give us the table next to the children’s play area and the door to the loos. Definitely the worst table to have...especially when you’re hearing not great and children playing right behind you ..next time I’ll remember to request a different table. Nice for the kids to have a play area but maybe not the best spot for it . Everything else wonderful…..More

Had a Sunday Lunch .last weekend. Very busy. Great reviews. Havnt been there for years. Considering the weather was very busy. I had the Roast Lamb. Some of the lamb was tough .roast potatoes were overcooked I had to cut my wife's up. And not...much veg. I then had the crumble and custard. Which was luke warm.surly should be nice and hot.? Yes should have complained at the time but we were newbies and they were very busy. Frankly disappointed seeing Lamb was over 17 pounds.More

A sneaky breakfast in the misty rainy morning. I am so glad to welcome the team back at what, in my opinion, is the tastiest restaurant in Cornwall, if not the whole of the UK. A great success since they first started well over a...decade ago. It's always a joy when Nick and Co return from their well-earned winter break. The Maker breakfast and Veggie breakfast were 'ansum as ever. Great ambience and quickly filling up even though the weather is 'inclement'. Even the tunes are appropriate. 😀More

Yum, Yum & Yum. We visited for breakfast for all but 1 of our days on holiday. Firstly note breakfast ends at 11. The atmosphere, welcoming friendly staff and service were all top rate. The mince pies were probably the best Jane has ever had...and she is somewhat of an expert. The breakfast selection was wide, portion sizes generous and prices reasonable. The rest of the menu looked great but we didn’t partake. Dog friendly with plenty of free on site parking, we will definitely be back.More

Came here a year ago with family and enjoyed it so much, when friends came to visit we came for Sunday lunch. Only about an hour’s drive😃 Lovely staff, good food, great location, quirky building. Old army Nissan huts, converted, great idea for staying in...keeping with the geography and history. A Plymouth girl now living in Cornwall I am well familiar with Maker Camp and get that nostalgic feeling looking down over Kingsand/ Cawsand.More

There is a large outdoor seating area where they are definitely welcome and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen the odd well behaved dog inside, too.

Yes, they serve a lovely breakfast, including a small version, cutely called the Baby Maker. You can book a table inside, but lots of outdoor seating which are first-come.
