During my stay in Falmouth, I had a couple hours to kill on a Monday evening before meeting a friend. Per recommendation from our hosts at a B&B, I decided to check out The Shed. I arrived at 8pm. The place wasn't crowded, but it was quite busy already. I received by a friendly waiter who then offered me a... More

This was our second visit to The Shed, & the first time for food. Without exception our party of 8 were extremely impressed with the food, which was all just so fresh & tasty. The staff were very helpful & friendly, although at times the service was a little slow as the place got very busy on this, a Friday... More

I have been going to the shed for years, and it never fails to disappoint. Whether it's for a meal or just drinks, the great friendly and fun atmosphere is just perfect!! I recently went for drinks with friends on a Saturday night and it was super busy. Although it was, the bar staff seemed to be getting through the... More

I often come here for cocktails with the girls, the decor throughout the bar and restraunt has a Sex And The City style and vibe! It's a great location for catching up over a few of their delicious cocktails, especially on Monday when it's two for £5- you can't go wrong. I often eat here as well, the food is... More

Recently visited the area to see friends, on the back for popped in Falmouth for breakfast, lucky to find The Shed who allowed a dog while we had food, ordered their fry up which was £8, the whole of items were of poor quality and if costed maybe just under 50p. Never again waste of money !!!!

Friendly and lively with well cooked food in an informal Bistro. The staff are all great and make you feel more than welcome. We have always felt at home eating there and appreciate the flexibility of the service. Always the first place we book in Falmouth. Could the Seafood Linguini go back on the main menu guys!!

My husband and I shared the "shack stack". Was supposed to be for two persons but we couldn't finish it all! Enjoyed fresh crab, oysters, prawns, scallops and calamari. Fab atmosphere! Waitress was amazing! Very friendly, knew her stuff. Managed to keep the entire restaurant in food and drinks despite being alone and the place rapidly filling up! Great variety... More

We visited this establishment over the weekend of March 8th/9th. The building faces north and so does not get a lot of light and can be quite draughty. Bar service was way too slow with just 2 on the bar when there should have been 4. We decided to try the sirloin steak which was disappointing. Service at the table... More

We were hugely caught out on the Saturday (I'm assuming this is when you visited) with an unexpected incredibly busy service. We were understaffed and admittedly struggling. I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your steak and afraid that I cannot comment comprehensively as you have not said what was wrong with it. This dish usually receives rave reviews. If... More
