Unexpected, delightful find

The Lakeside Cafe is situated by the boating lake and from the outside looks as the title suggests.

My husband said he would treat me to lunch after a recent trip into Newquay. I wasn't expecting much as he said it was a cafe. When we drew up to the lakeside I must say that I didn't even realise it was there, I must have had my eyes closed every time I drove past the boating lake. It... More

Came with family down on holiday, nice layout and service very good. Range on menu is good and good variation too. Slightly disappointed with veg which was overcooked and therefore a bit tasteless. I had sole which was a good portion and well cooked. The drinks are a fair price and of god quality. Been here quite a few times... More

Celebrated my dad's 80th birthday with a family meal here. The table was beautifully decorated with streamers, flowers. Waitress was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent food and wine. Lovely family occasion. Superb place.

The table was beautifully decorated even though I had not asked for any special treatment, it was a very thoughtful gesture and much appreciated . The food was good value and there were a great variety of choices available. I had the pie of the day which was served piping... More
