Went for lunch with friends. So happy to be back near the boating lake I use to visit as a child! That whole area is as lovely as ever - beautiful trees and garden beds, lots of ducks, swans etc on the water, as well as the paddle boats I remember so well! So the restaurant is in a lovely... More

A wonderful place for breakfast by the side of a boating lake, with good food and wonderful friendly staff. They welcome dogs in one end of the cafe and go that extra mile to make customers feel welcome. I was really impressed when we were remembered having not been back to this area for 3 years!

After reading several good reviews we decided to visit Lakeside for a family lunch. On entry we began to feel we'd made a mistake. The decor was, although clean, drab and tasteless. The front counter was loaded up with tired looking Tupperware. They were full of cakes that I'm sure presented otherwise could have looked nice but due to hideous... More

We also came on the recommendations of a local taxi driver and we wasn't disappointed. The views of the lake are stunning in the autumn Sun with the food to match. The menu is small but backed up with a daily specials board. This is a hidden gem that shouldn't be ignored and will definitely returning before we leave.

I ate lunch here recently and found it to be very good, especially in terms of value for money. The service was pretty good and the quality of the food was excellent, and with a nice view to top it off, I'll definitely be returning!

During a recent visit to Cornwall we had lunch at the lakeside cafe. Food really nice, there was 3 of us and we shared a few tapas style meals. Really well presented and very tasty. Will definitely return simetime

Went into Lakeside for our Sunday lunch and ended up being so spoilt rotten with fantastic food that we could barely move afterwards. Everything was exceptional, the service, the smiles, the menu range and the extra effort people there seemed to put into making sure we had a great time. I was a big worried to read some of these...

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions and without fail have had wonderful food, fantastic service and without fail a most enjoyable experience at a very reasonable price. Without exception the staff are most efficient, attentive and very welcoming. All in all most highly recommended.

Generally awful. I used to love this place. It used to be managed by a nice group of chatty, happy girls. They appear to be replaced by a surly manager whose approach to service is so off putting I was too scared to tell him that I ordered fresh apple juice not concentrate from a carton. Generally I'm willing to... More
