“42nd wedding anniversary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

We went to the Kingswood to celebrate our 25th and 30th anniversary, but we hadn't been for a long time as it has changed hands we didn't know what to expect. We were not disappointed with our meal it was steak night and was very busy. We got there at 6.30pm made our choice and was eating our first course by 6.50. I chose the slow roast beef which just melted with dauphoise potatoes and savoy cabbage my husband had the belly pork. We just had room for a dessert which was very good. Coffee in the very comfortable lounge finished the evening. It's not one of the cheapest but it is certainly very good value £50 for 2.
I have signed up to go out for Christmas for our office party hope its just as good can't wait

“Excellent! Just excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Arranged a meal with my wife and three friends here recently and despite my friend booking our table for the wrong night, the restaurant managed to accomodate us perfectly.

The food was stunning (It was a steak and shellfish specials night) and I had a steak for main course that was simply perfect.

All of my friends enjoyed their meals and we agreed that the value of price vs quality is the best we have had anywhere.

All of the staff were extremely friendly and could not have done more to make our evening more enjoyable.

Fantastic restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and quality food and service.... What more is needed?

“Great all round restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

We visited Kingswood twice in October 2012 and loved it so we were keen to go back when we returned to Cornwall this year. Despite having changed hands, we were not disappointed and the restaurant more than lived up to our expectations and memories. Staff are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient; the food is wonderful and the atmosphere is great. We ate at 1830 as we had our 3.5 and 1.5 year old boys with us and yet even at this early hour a lot of tables were full and by the time we left it was very busy. I am always nervous about taking my kids out to eat as they are at that difficult age when a trip to a restaurant can be more hassle than its worth but the staff made us feel extremely welcome, treated the children really well and didn't make us feel like we should have stayed at home (which some retsaurants do). For this reason as much as for the quality of the food I would recommend Kingswood. We will definitely be visiting again on our next holiday to Cornwall.

“Lovely Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

Great food, attentive staff and a lovely atmosphere on my first visit.

Went for an evening meal here and they managed to squeeze us in! Food was great (please see pictures). Have returned since and the standard has not changed at all!
