We just popped in after a walk around the gardens. Light and airy and given a warm welcome and enjoyed the view over the lake from the sofa with great coffee and cake. Good value. It will be our first stop when we return to Newquay

We eat here several times a year as a couple or big groups. We have always had good meals, the portions are of a excellent standard and the staff are friendly and approachable! Thank you for plenty of good visits and we look forward to coming again soon! P.S Pie night is recommended!

Popped in for a late light lunch. Had pate, toast and salad which was lovely. Service great and pleasant atmosphere. Will return. Only negative was 'people born in a barn'. Maybe a weighted door as the other end of the cafe would solve that problem

Sorry Lakeside I just have to put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard. A 50p surcharge on a contactless card payment for coffee and cake because it didn't reach your minimum spend.
Can't think of another business I use that has a minimum spend on contactless payments, thought that was the object of contactless.
The coffee and cake was lovely but I left with a bitter taste in my mouth.

This is a surprising delightful restaurant in the evening - a café during the day and an amazing restaurant in the evening. The 'specials board' has a comprehensive choice of dishes, expertly cooked and nicely presented - and could compete on a par with many of the 'fancy and pricey restaurants' in the town. The sticky toffee pudding is something to die for if you can manage a dessert ! A good selection of wines with fresh flowers on each table. The restaurant overlooks the boating lake and in the evening it is well lit to give a calm tranquil appearance across the water.
