Wonderful

Been here loads of times, but last night in the sweltering heat, they had put extra dishes on that were tasty, satisfying but light, great that the chef/owner Tom had thought about his clientele and how the hot weather affects our eating - top marks.

Went for a get together with friends for lunch. I had crab and salad and friends had fish cakes which they said were lovely. My crab was delicious. I have booked again in a few weeks for an evening meal and am looking forward to a great evening with family.

We ate here one night during our recent holiday on a recommendation. We were not disappointed, the meal was fabulous!! Had an amazing duck dish and as soon as I was finished I would have eaten it all over again as it was the best duck dish I'd ever had. My friend had a chicken dish and she mirrored my... More

The Lakeside was recommended to us by a friend otherwise I would never have thought of it as a good place for dinner but what a find. Immediately we entered the café a waitress greeted us with a smile and showed us to a window table, although I had forgotten to ask for one when booking. Whilst reading the specials... More

We are a family of four(two small children) we turned up to our meal being greeted with "breakfast has finished" I replied "we have booked for lunch" then we got shown to the wrong table and having a 2 year old and 7 month old we didn't need extra stress, we decided to eat elsewhere. Will not be going back,... More

We were looking forward to our meal at lakeside and booked several days in advance only to arrive on the night to be greated by a terse " can I help you" and then to be told that they had no booking for us. This in itself would not normally cause me to write this type of review as mistakes... More

The Lakeside Cafe is situated by the boating lake and from the outside looks as the title suggests. But when inside, the tables, the menu and service turn out to be an excellent standard, a real surprise. The menu provides an ample selection but the list of specials almost doubles the choice. The food is well cooked and presented and... More

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
