I've been to the Waymarker for dinner before and was blown away, so when the suggestion to "take afternoon tea" with some light jazz, out near Gweek was proffered I knew the invitation had the Waymarker written all over it. It was a perfect way to spend an August afternoon. Now you can't really get over excited about cream teas.... More

We stayed nearby and had our first (and best) meal in Cornwall here, Beautiful food in a lovely, relaxed setting with very friendly service. So good, we returned again and found the food and service was just as good on our second visit. From a personal point of view, I prefer to eat a little later than the 6pm closing,... More

They were more than happy for us to bring him and have a covered area outside. The service was excellent and the cream tea was... More

A choice of scones and served on Cornish slate cake stand, with fresh fruit garnish......definitely the best of the 6 we had in different places during our holiday. It was so good we returned for dinner on our last night and the food was delicious. The staff are so welcoming and nothing... More

My friend promised us a cream tea before we left Falmouth and he read the good reviews for The Waymarker and decided to take us there. I'm so glad he did, it was a wonderful find. The setting was lovely, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the coffee was good. We sat outside because it was a sunny... More

The scones were delicious and came with a good amount of cram and jam. The presentation was lovely with a decoration of berries. The... More

Lovely place to visit. The Staff are friendly and genuine. The roasts in themselves are amazing, with a nice vegetarian option too. Whatever you do though. try the Cream Tea. It's the nicest cream tea I have ever had. Idyllic location too. Proper Cornwall! Make sure you book a table in advance

Saw on road to Seal Sanctuary....outside looks disappointing but inside a very warm welcome and food excellent. Son had BLT in baguette with real bacon not silly pieces. We had yummy crab salad sandwiches with nice side salad and delicious coffee. Would definitely recommend!!
