Ate here when visiting family down in Newquay. The Sunday Roast was amazing and cracking value. Out of season yet still busy which shows the quality of the place. 2 or 3 courses for less than £15. Staff were friendly and very helpful ! Atmosphere was lovely as well and place will be worth a visit in the summer !

For our first meal in Cornwall this was an excellent start that was never bettered. It was so good, we came back after being turned away (and turned off by rude service elsewhere) as we were so well looked after. Unlike other places, my baby was warmly welcomed - highchair provided and extra bread on tap (at no extra charge).... More

We visited for an evening meal. The food was amazing and couldn't be faulted and the waiting staff were all very polite and friendly. However, we arrived at 7.30 and we were out of the door by 8.45... Having had 3 courses! We felt very rushed and found we couldn't have our meal at a leisurely pace and not much... More

The food here was distinctly average.nothing out of the ordinary. The bistro wasn't overly busy when I visited.I found the menu a little if not uninspiring to say the least.
