My wife and me had an evening meal on a Wednesday and I have to say the food was of a very high standard and a very reasonable price. We were served by a young Dutch man and young lady, they were both lovely and a credit to the restaurant.(Managment take note) We would be more than happy to eat... More

I love coming to this place for possibly the best cream tea in Cornwall. Atmosphere is great. Staff are polite and friendly and the view is breathtaking when you sit outside the back.

This place looked lovely and is right by the beach , this is a popular spot for dog walkers but unlike most places this one is not dog friendly and we were turned away albeit politely

We have been a couple of times, admittedly usually only for coffee and cake. The restaurant has a nice olde world Cornish charm to it I would recommend this to anyone.
