Attended a christmas party night on a Saturday evening, the food was lovely, but the service was very slow indeed. Called in to sit down at 7.45, when we were told 7.30 sit down, starters came out quite quick, then it went down hill, still waiting for dessert at 9.45, and the disco had already started and we were still eating. Which i thought was abit off. Apart from that i would recommend the entertainment, Shamless were very good. I would go to a party night there again, but i wish the management would employ some more staff in the restaurant, especially when catering for a large number of people.

Had a Christmas lunch there last week. I can't say it was fantastic, it wasn't. They were catering for far too many people, it was extremely noisy as many of them were elderly and probably deaf! The starters - easy to prepare - were good. The vegetables for the main course were the cheapest you could buy - carrots, swede and red cabbage. No greens. The service was excellent once you got your table. That's "if" you got your table. Some people couldn't even find their table and staff didn't help. The mousse was lovely, I'm glad I didn't choose Christmas pudding which looked terrible, was dry looking and like a slice of bread in shape. Obviously all produced with the cheapest ingredients.

The Falmouth Hotel has a brilliant position with panoramic views of the sea to be enjoyed both in good and bad weather. The bar area where I ate on one occasion has a very relaxed atmosphere especially when not many people are there, the service has an old fashioned courteous feel to it. It is a nice place to have a drink and in good weather you can sit outside enjoying the sun. The seafood platter that I had was good though it did not have much bread with it, and hardly any salad. I really enjoy going to this place and the prices are reasonable.

Mark (Head Chef) and his team produce one of the finest Sunday Lunches we've ever had, the menu offered a great selection and very reasonable prices. The service is second to none, Claire our waitress couldn't have been more helpful. We had the added bonus of listening to Pendennis Brass Band who were playing in the garden. We would definitely recommend dining here and we will return. Thank you Falmouth Hotel

We sat in the bar side of the restaurant with the sunshine streaming in on one of the few days of winter sun, A panoramic view of the bay. The bar menu has from a non meat eating standpoint has soup, pasta, and sandwiches. We opted for the pasta with mushrooms, spinach, asparagus,parmesan and truffle oil, (small portion for under £6) and it was quite a good sized portion. Being a cold day I thought it might arrive tepid, but it was lovely and hot. We both enjoyed it, Staff are friendly and attentive. We will return.
