Good restaurant and friendly service

We had a dinner at the Meadery on New Year's Day. Although we didn't have a reservation, the management team managed to find us a space. The food was really great and the portions much bigger than expected. The restaurant is warm, family friendly and a friendly atmosphere.

I love this place, it is one of the things I miss about 'home'. Returning to Cornwall with my wife and out baby son I took them to the meadery so she understood what I kept going on about. She wasn't disappointed. Great service, atmosphere and the food is still wonderful. Good prices, great mead. She was so impressed with... More

Been visiting this place for years and it's amazing. The chicken is some of the best around, and the mead is so good, but deceptively strong. Have been for stag evenings and family meals out and the service and food is always the same and amazing. You know what you're expecting and they never fail to deliver.

I have been coming here for around 30 years and I still love it. The food is amazing and the service is always lovely. Just wish I had room for a dessert but can never manage it! The chicken in the rough is enough! Thank you once again and see you again soon

Themed and unusual type of dining - there are a few Meaderies in Cornwall. Very atmospheric, set in an historic building (cinema), served by staff (Wenches) dressed in medieval dress. Food served on wood platters as it would be in medieval times. Lit by candles/very low lights - it is quite dark. Friendly staff. You must try the Cornish mead... More
