The Shed is well known locally for great cocktails but i was really impressed when the barman overheard me talking about a cocktail that wasn't on the menu that i really liked. Even though i didn't ask him to make it he went to great effort to make the cocktail and it tasted great. Thats what i call service.

Just sat outside at a table watching the world go by whilst having a coffee. Coffee at the correct temperature and with a nice taste. That is not too bitter but with a definite coffee taste. For such a busy place as Falmouth this was quite quiet and relaxing.

Five of us enjoyed our meal at The Shed. Three of us had tapas while the other two chose their meals from the main menu. We all enjoyed our meals very much & the service was second to none. Thank you.

We had planned to go back to Birmingham in the morning, but decided to have a last minute lunch in one of our favourite restaurants the Shed. The staff are always really friendly, and make you feel welcome. I had half chicken, which came with grilled tomato, mushroom, onion rings and fries. Cooked really well, the chicken was moist, and...

Tapas for four sitting outside in the sunshine. All the tables outside the adjacent restaurants and bars were empty - says it all really!. Fine food and excellent service.

Great place to sit out in the sun and enjoy a cocktail or two... Staff are delightful and nothing is too much trouble. Next time plan to eat at sister restaurant The Shed next door.

Thank you for commenting positively on tripadvisor. We all work very hard together to provide attentive, personal service consistently, and it is always wonderful for everyone when this is recognized in a review.

We were a table of six and all of us enjoyed our dining experience at The Shed. The food was excellent, both main and desert, and two of us had steak which was cooked exactly as we asked, medium and medium rare. The cocktails were delicious and the service excellent. Would return again.

Sorry not to wax lyrical about this establishment, but it failed miserably to live up to the previous favorable comments in Trip Advisor. We visited here in May on a not very busy afternoon and were looking forward to a nice piece of cake and a coffee. The restaurant wasn't busy at all, just a few people chatting and drinking... More

I am shocked and very sorry to hear you we're not attended to promptly. There is no excuse for this and I humbly apologise. We pride ourselves on personal, attentive service and so incidences such as this do not sit well with me. All I can say is that if the member of staff who first greeted you was leaving... More
