Great value. A real Gem

We loved the food here. So much so that we ate here twice in four days. Great value and good portions. Our little boys loved running around the pavilion and we could see them easily. It's a family friendly place. I ate the goats cheese salad which was sooo tasty. And the fishcakes the other night... read more

Lovely setting and very good value for money compared to other nearby venues. Had lovely lunch with mum for Mother's Day although would question Yorkshire puds with lamb and didn't like my gravy/jus put on for me. Had to send son's lunch back as he doesn't do gravy at all and very young waitress questioned this. I said I had... More

We're always on the lookout for somewhere for lunch around Falmouth, somewhere we can park easily. We wanted to check out future events at the Pavilion, and realised that there is a restaurant attached. You are not pounced on immediately. In some ways good, in some ways not so. There was a specials board up, but no menus on the... More

Only went in the garden underneath the pavilion however it was a great garden and there was a little gated area which was lit up blue - when you look onside it was covered in seashells which apparently have been there for 150 years - amazing

Lunch was delicious. Quiet and attractive outdoor area. Right next to the beach and a really pretty park area. The Millionaires Shortbread was the best I've ever had by far.

When visiting Falmouth, be sure to drop into the Princess Pavilion, Gyllyngdune Gardens and The Garden Room.. Great location, great views & FREE parking. An easy stroll to the harbour where you can watch everyone else struggle to find a parking place. We've been a number of times this year. After the Red Arrows display, we stayed for dinner. Cafeteria... More

We walked throught the gardens everyday on our way to the beach. Lovely and unusual plants and trees, plus shell grottos - enjoyable for all ages. Didn't attend any events there but ate in the restaurant twice! It is a large, uninviting area but with garden views, good varied menu and friendly staff we found it to be a very... More
