This is a small but delightful restaurant. The menu is fairly small at about 4 or 5 choices of starter and main but this is because the food is cooked freshly to order and of excellent quality and flavour.

This is a small restaurant in the middle of the village and it could be easily overlooked. It is only open in the evenings and you do need to book as it is small and popular. The menu is short, with four or five choices...More

Absolutely delicious meal, enjoyed by all four of us. I had moules, followed by lamb rump - both were exquisite. If you are visiting Polperro this summer, make sure you book a meal at The Kitchen. Can't wait to go back.
