Our second visit to the Waymaker having been given a very nice christmas present of afternoon tea for the whole family, so after a lovely walk building up an appetite we arrived to a lovely warm welcome and a truly delicious afternoon tea, sandwiches with the crusts off and lovely homemade scones. My one complaint would be the extra miles... More

We booked for a family meal, the menu was the draw as we all like this style of cooking. There is plenty of parking and on entering the restaurant we were made welcome straight away. The room is clean and well furnished in a contemporary style. The waitress was helpful. The food was delicious, well cooked and presented and helpings... More

Whilst on a weekend trip to Cornwall we were in need of a cream Tea. The Waymarker came up as recommened so we took a punt and stopped there. WOW, the cream teas were gorgeous, wish we'd had time to sample more of the menu, guess a return visit is called for.

Excellent food-interesting flavours and textures, ample portions. Everyone made to feel special by the front of house staff and it was pleasing the chef found time to check with customers about their choice on the menu. We cannot rate this establishment too highly.

The Waymarker is a superb restaurant in the countryside with lovely views and outside seating. The welcome is always warm and friendly and the food delicious and beautifully served. The portions are always generous and I have to admit that I opt for the smaller portion of Mains as it then allows me both the sumptuous starter and a dessert!

The Sunday lunch is great not just because of the great traditional roast, but because Kevin always has really tasty imaginative starters, and great fish alongside the main roasts. It's a cut above all other sunday lunches in terms of quality and rang. Also went midweek for a late lunch when friends turned up unexpectedly. They were surpised by the... More

This was truly the BEST cream tea we have ever had!!! The presentation was second to none, plenty of jam and cream (jam first in Cornwall!!) lovely fruit decoration and a choice of two different types of scones all very greedily demolished!! No supper that night!!! The service is excellent and the owners are so pleasant and polite and always... More
