Apologies I have no idea how I missed this message. In our Falmouth shop we are limited by space for a gluten free specific fryer so yes the feedback you got from the shop was right. The batter is suitable but the cooking... More

Hi to you too, Yes to our furry friends but only at the front two tables (before you go through the arch). In the restaurant always have a veggie dish of the day plus we do tasty veggie burgers and sausages. Hope that... More
