Our second visit after two years as we were in the area was as excellent as we remembered. This place would knock the spots of Rick Stein's Seafood restaurant in every way. Amazing food and service which could not have been better in a pleasant...More

We weren't expecting very much but we were amazed at the quality of food. So much better than any other restaurant in the region (and we have eaten at many). Such attention to detail, great flavours, fresh food. Fantastic service, my husband is a vegetarian...More

The Dining Room did what it says on the tin and delivered an interesting and delicious dinner for four at an amicable price. Our waiter recommended the local, Cornish champagne for an aperitif which was a discovery. The only English "champagne" that I would choose...More

We had a lovely meal here on a Friday evening. Such a calm place with attentive but subtle waiting. The food was delicious with a menu that, although slim, had perfect balance. I cannot wait to return but London to Rock is a long way....More

Another fantastic meal! The Dining Room never fails to deliver. The presentation is beautiful and pretty canapés, freshly baked bread and our whole meal was once again mouth watering and delicious. I had the tuna tartare to start with which was incredible so fresh and...More

I can’t praise this restaurant enough - the presentation of the food was lovely, it tasted even better and we were so well looked after by Donna and the team (including the young lady who had only started her waitressing career that evening). We ordered...More

Hi, Its more for adults and a more quiet more intimate meal. Not for Kids in my opinion. You want to go to the Rock Inn (if they behave inside) or Cracking Crab at Polzeath, large outdoor area by the car park

No it's not the sort of place to let the kids run around. If you want that, try the Rising Sun at Altarnun (just the Davidstow side of Altarnun) which has great food but an outside area for the kids to run around and a... More
