My now wife and I got married here in June 2018, and had an excellent time. Everything about Knightor was perfect for us - it offered exclusivity, excellent food and drink, and a rustic charm that we fell in love with at our first visit to look around.

Anna (the Knightor Events Manager) gave us a fantastic tour that first day, and sat down with us and priced out every detail of what we thought we wanted on the day - incredibly thoroughly, and something we didn't get at any other venue. This was in no small part the reason we chose Knightor - we weren't rushed, she was happy to take as long as we needed and go through all available options.

Throughout all the planning, we returned many times to eat Sunday lunches, taste wine, or just have a look around, and every time the food was excellent, the staff were welcoming and incredibly accommodating - I'm sure after the third time they were sick of us showing different people around the manor house!

There was always somebody available to ask questions about the day, be it Anna, or Jess, or whoever was behind the bar at the time. The day itself was incredibly smooth and polished, we didn't feel rushed, but got through the day with no stress at all, and kept well to our schedule. The venue itself is well thought out for a wedding - the top floor serves as both ceremony room and dining room, with plenty of space downstairs and outside for the changeover. Downstairs has a great dance floor which held our band and a bunch of incredibly enthusiastic (if not overly skillful!) dancing guests, and the transition from eating dinner to evening music was seamless, in part due to the layout.

The food was excellent, and plentiful, from the delicious canapés (I would definitely recommend the fish and chip cones!) through to evening pasties and cake, I couldn't fault a thing. They catered excellently and without a fuss for our guests with gluten and dairy intolerances, none of whom had anything negative to say at all.

We had an excellent wedding, and very much lucked out on the weather - the Royal Cornwall show had rain all day; we just had clear skies! I would definitely recommend Knightor to anyone who wants to get married, or just wants a delicious Sunday lunch.

A short walk or cycle ride from the Eden project, this place offered a nice romantic activity during our Cornwall holiday - David, the winemaker gave us an overview of this young yet ambitious winery then we proceed to a tasting of their main wines. We then had a delicious and generous Sunday roast, with tasty starters and desserts as well. The staff was very friendly and professional throughout. We warmly recommend the place.

As soon as we arrived at Knightor the first time we visited, we knew it was the venue for us (we didn't even look anywhere else). The massive bonus was how friendly and easy-going the whole team were. They were accommodating to everything we wanted and supported us through the wedding planning process. Additionally the food and wine produced at Knightor is amazing- we included a wine tasting table as part of our wedding day and our friends and family loved it. We rented the manor house the night before and the night of our wedding, it has been freshly decorated and we felt very comfortable there. We had an amazing wedding day and can highly recommend the venue to anyone considering it.

Just popped in to check out the wine, was blown away by the slick front of house operation, just wished I’d had time to stop off for Sunday lunch. Walked away with a beautiful bottle of rare white and a wealth of information on Cornish wines. Amazing.

Had the loveliest roast i’ve ever had at a restaurant, all the food was beautifully cooked and staff were all lovely. Really impressed with the vegetarian option so nice not to have the usual vegetarian option of risotto or something with goats cheese. Would highly recommend this place to anyone and looking forward to returning sometime soon.
