only visited this cafe for a snack at lunchtime, but good varied menu and lovely views down to the sea.

I am not a fan of Sunday lunches out as more often than not I come away feeling I could have cooked far better at home. But the sharing platter served here was very good indeed. It contained piles of slices of loin of pork and brisket of beef, roast potatoes, spinach, roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, braised red cabbage, carrot... More

lovely view, excellent staff, good service - however really poor quality food, 3 of us ordered the lamb chops, tough as old boots, actually needed a steak knife to cut into the lamb, it wasn't just mine all of us had the same problem, waiter was very apologetic and we decided to replace for steaks, the steaks were an improvement...

My partner took me here for my birthday and we had an overnight stay for the weekend. Firstly we went here for dinner (we were going to go to the more expensive and fine dining restaurant but were much more suited to this!). The service was great and we were served in good time, and the food arrived quickly. We... More

The Bedruthan Steps hotel is in an amazing location, on the cliffs . We went into the wild cafe and were blown away by the view. Spectacular. However the food was only average and well overpriced . A bit of a disappointment.

My sister booked us a table overlooking the beach for Sunday lunch. She had checked that they had vegetarian options. When we arrived it was a set Sunday roast of beef and pork only. On explaining our predicament the waiter spoke to the chef who offered a vegan Sunday roast. The roast comes on massive platters delivered to your table... More

Four of us visited the Wild Cafe for a meal while we were on holiday in Cornwall this summer. We were impressed by the decor and general vibe at first. The views are amazing!! It looked very nice. However what we noticed after that was the loud racket that was coming from the dining room! There were children screaming, plates... More

This was my first visit to the Wild Cafe . Beautiful scenery overlooking the sea . Shame about the service we waited nearly an hour for our food , which was a carvery for seven of us, but it was worth the wait the food was lovely. When the bill arrived we could not understand why it was so much... More

The food was just incredible. I thought it was really well priced considering the quality and generous portions. Staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. And that is before I even mention the stunning view and vibrant decor. I cant recommend this highly enough. I would be there every week if it wasn't a 6 hour drive!
