Lovely location, great views and varied menu with specials. I had goats cheese salad which I thought was a bit light on the goats cheese and heavy of the dressing, but enjoyed it. My companion had tomato soup which looked as though it might have...More

Visit every time I come to cornwall as the setting overlooking the estuary is perfect. Good service, average food with extortionately priced menu for what it is.

Good food. The hallumi bites and salt and pepper squid are delish and a perfect snack after a long walk. The service is average though and it takes advantage of having an element of exclusivity with the prices - it is overpriced.

The waitress that showed you to the table has been with us for over 2 years. In that time we have never had a bad word said against her. I am astounded you think she ‘lowered’ herself .... whatever that means. If you had requested...More

Our cafe is totally pet friendly! We have water bowls with fresh water in, a separate dog menu and a huge heated and cushioned terrace for pets and owners to sit! We do not allow dogs ‘inside’ as we have an open kitchen. I’m sure...More
