We went to Austell's to see if the trip advisor reviews were correct!
Have to say the location at the end of a row of shops next to a Chinese restaurant & two or three doors down from an Indian restaurant did not inspire confidence - but wow as soon as you get inside a totally different perspective emerges. Front of house Emma is as remarkable in the way she runs the restaurant as Brett is cooking as the Chef.
The lady runs the show with almost military precision but with great charm. The food is superb - it is a great pity that we need to do a 250 mile round trip to eat there. Please don't let your high standards slip!

Many have said it before me. This restaurant offers great food and great service. If only more establishments could be the same as Austells. Anyone thinking of opening a restaurant should come here for a meal to see how to do it faultlessly. This also applies to many existing businesses, including one that is very, very close to here.

Another wonderful meal on a Sunday evening for my Wife's birthday. Loved the 'Pot Luck' Sunday menu with excellent relaxed dining and faultless food!

We went to this restaurant on a trip to St Austell last year and we were so impressed with the quality of the food and the way we were looked after that we made the trip again JUST to go back to this restaurant! It was just as good, the food was exceptional and presented beautifully and you are made to feel very welcome with nothing being too much trouble! And to top it all the prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food!
