“Great food but London prices”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Smogers… great food but London prices. Good salad bar for lunch. Portions vary depending who serves you. I must say I was a little shocked that 4 pieces of toast cost £4.00 and that was takeaway. I would have never paid that even in London let alone St Austell. Yes, please go and sample the good food, but be prepared to dig deep in your purse…

“A great pre-cinema meal”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Smorgers was an undiscovered gem for us. It was pretty quiet on the evening we went there but had been full to capacity (and beyond) the previous evening.
We had a huge meal, which was well-cooked with locally-sourced ingredients. Very reasonably priced and good, friendly service. Smorgers is very centrally situated in the town near to car parks and shops. Speciality evenings are regularly held there and live music is sometimes a feature.
We would definitely visit again

“An excellent meal”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Two of us visited Smorgers for their anniversary special curry night a week or so ago. What a spread! Beautifully presented, excellent quality and flavour, and top service. Live music, which though not particularly to our taste, was just right for the occasion - not so loud as to make conversation difficult.

Good to see a quality establishment in a modest town at a time of business challenges. Full marks to Smorgers for putting on such a great evening and showing that St Austell is worth visiting.

They also serve fine quality lunches and takeaway salads throughout the day.

“Thursday dinner”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Very friendly staff and well presented, helpful waitress who was efficient. Food really tasty and fun to have a mix of things. We had the Menu B for 2 which was generous, so no room for pudding. The prawns were excellent. We phoned to book for Friday (tomorrow) night but they were fully booked, so decided to go tonight instead. Great idea and so pleased we have a place of this quality in St Austell. Will certainly tell my friends.
