A last minute booking for a meal with friends. I wasn't expecting too much because from outside its kerb appeal is rather unassuming. The hotel was extremely quiet for a Saturday evening. We were taken to a large dining room of which our table was one of 3 occupied.
The dining room was nicely decorated but rather cold. The tables were nicely set with nice linens.
The menu was varied with a good choice. All of our meals were cooked and presented well with no corners cut. Salads were well dressed and sauces homemade, portions were generous and the service was prompt and polite.
I have eaten and a lot of restaurants throughout Cornwall and have to say the food we were served was right up there with fine dining. I am surprised the restaurant was not bursting at the seams! Obviously Restormel Lodge is hiding its light under a Bushel. So you don't need to stay here to use their restaurant so I advise locals to give it a try as you wont be disappointed...oh and its not fine dining prices either! Well done Restormel Lodge, we all really enjoyed our meal and will return.
