We spent 4 days in The Greenbank over last weekend.
The restaurant and bar overlook Falmouth Bay and the view is unbelievably brilliant.
After a long drive we spent the first evening in the bar with a few pints of ‘Betty’. Next morning it was misty and the breakfast view over the bay as the fog cleared was breathtaking. Not so the kipper. We tried to book a table in the restaurant for the following evening (Saturday) but were told that it was full. After some persuading, the reception agreed to ask the restaurant manager if he could fit two extra in. Eventually, we were successful.
Saturday we had lunch in the most southerly Polpeor Café at Lizard Point. My St. Kevern pasty with chips were great as was the wife’s crab salad. That evening we dined at the Greenbank and had the best table in the restaurant (the corner with a 260 degree view). But the restaurant wasn’t full and we guessed that the wedding party was the real reason that we had initially been refused a table. Anyway, despite the view the food was average and not a patch on my earlier St. Kevern pasty!! So, the following two nights we ate out.
But we may visit again if only for a breakfast with a tremendous view.
