“A tad disappointed ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

I've never eaten here before, despite living in wadebridge. Family on holiday had eaten in the evening and said it was very nice. So we all went out today for midday lunch. Unable to set up a tab, apparently not available during the day. Food ordered, two meat pies, one tuna fillet off the specials board and one salmon fillet.

Pies were good and contents were very nice. Tuna fillet looked like it should have been on the kids menu. Salmon fillet was a good portion and excellent quality.

Restaurant was clean and service cold be improved. No check during consumption if all was ok. Also no check food was ok when plates collected.

A bit disappointed, has soo much potential. I think the menu is too large and that has led to the lack of quality. Menu could be cut in half and the quality would be four fold.

“Gone from average to awful!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

We have eaten out here a few times because although there was always terribly slow service the 2 for 1 deals, simple menu and always guaranteeing a table made it appealing for us to have a catch up every now and again.
The last time we went and found to our horror there was no more 2 for 1, and the most awful overly complicated menu comprising of lots of unappetizing choices. That combined with the owner explaining the new menu was because he was sick of customers ordering food and not eating their veg so wasting his money (as opposed to being a choice to benefit customers); and the vegetables being AWFUL overcooked peas and carrots obviously from a cheap "mixed frozen veg" was pretty grim. Won't be going again!

Loved the food here - Tuna Steak was fantastic.

You must try the vanilla/caramel lattes - delicious!
