Booked for a lunch this time, three courses £18 each, we had Ham Hock Terrine and fish cake to start. Partridge sausages and Brill for main and chocolate brownie and cheesecake for dessert.
My Mum and Aunt ate here last night and again top notch.
Service was excellent but the food is the star here, always lives up to our expectations of Ben.

We ate here last night, but I am already compelled to write in praise of this wonderful place. Relaxed, welcoming, professional. But the best bit is simply the food. Scallops with celeriac puree and bacon jam vinagerette was the best scallop dish my partner had ever eaten. My fillet of beef was accompanied by a "pulled beef Rossini croquette" which was so delicious I wanted to steal a bucket of them to take home with me. Hot Marathon fondant pudding was fun and delicious, sweet curry plate original and perfectly flavoured. Waiting staff are spot on - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Excellent wine by the glass is a brilliant concept that puts the diners needs first and should be commended. £120 for two which included wine, aperitif, dessert wines and cognac. Best £120 I have ever spent and very much hope to have the pleasure of dining here again. Magnificent.

Had our 'main' special night out for our week in Marazion and booked here early as we were advised to do this by local friends. Great imaginative menu and very very good food presented. Service felt a bit ad hoc and a tad slow at times but we weren't in a hurry. Staff dealt well with a group that turned up saying they'd booked but nothing was in the diary. Nice varied selection in wine to match the menu creativity. Nice atmosphere. Recommended if you are staying near Marazion and like to eat food prepared by someone who clearly has a great palate.

While the portions were small, we have to say we never tasted anything as good. We thoroughly enjoyed every bite. The staff was super professional but we have waited half an hour for the starter and after it another 45 minutes for the main course. We recommend it but beware of both the portion sizes and the waiting time!
