Went with my two sons for lunch. Ordered single burger. Kids cheese burger with fries, £4 and Steak Sub, no drinks. Total bill £17+.
My boys did enjoy their burgers but my sub was a joke. Very little steak and loads of semi cooked onions.

By all means go and have your meal there alongside your chef who smokes on the decking, but just don't order the Onion[steak] Sub!

Fantastic lunch, busy atmosphere. The chef served us at the till as the waiting staff were really busy. Really pleasant service from him and the lady serving outside table. Only downside was having to use pub toilet across the road.

We ate lunch here today and were pleased with the menu choices and the service. The only concern is that a couple next to us chain smoked throughout our meal. Please display a no smoking sign even on the outside seating area which is covered by a canopy

We have been using the Fistral Chef since we got to Newquay last Sunday, and this place is the best place for a breakfast esp if you like your full english, smoothies, and your cuppa's.

There very accommodating esp if you want to swap certain things its not a problem. very clean, food excellent and great value for the service you get. The kids loved the smoothies and the milkshakes and also that they could watch the music channel while they were eating!!

Happy Days
