Spending a few weeks visiting a relative in Newquay hospital recently, we started walking down to the Lakeside through Trenance Gardens for breaks. The first time was just for tea and cakes, but the menu looked so tempting, the next time we went for lunch. To call what we ate "sandwiches" would be to belittle them - thick open slices... More

Stopped in for lunch today and decided on roast chicken. Nicely cooked and really well priced, good selection of vegetables so I was stuffed by the end. The staff were really friendly so will be back again for sure

So I took my dad, my partner and our three kids to eat here tonight. The place looks pretty naff from the outside but that changed once inside, very tastefully done out. Menu was quite restricted, but with the specials board added in there was plenty of variety and options to suit all. Starters of soup (beautiful), pate, veg side... More

Having eaten here before and had a bad experience with other guests being too loud, we were pleasantly surprised this time. Late November on a Friday night we had a table booked for 7pm, the restaurant was already busy, but everyone was amiable and the noise level was bearable. The food was excellent and served with a smile. The choice... More

Booked table for two, for 6pm. Beautifully decorated throughout for Christmas, especially the tables. Lovely setting and very warm and inviting with the log burner going. Staff very friendly, welcoming and efficient. I had scampi to start and chicken in a creamy sauce with bubble and squeak for main course. Both absolutely delicious, perfectly cooked and full of flavour. My... More

I went in to lakeside last week for lunch and had the seafood linguine which is delicious and only £5.50 which I think is very reasonable. The food is always good and you can tell that they use quality ingredients. They have a standard menu for the daytime and an ever changing evening menu written up behind the counter. The... More

Our first meal in Lakeside will be our last, food was turkey roast potatoes etc, it was dry and lacked taste, vegetables were adequate. The decoration was good, warm surroundings, waitress was pleasant...Price was excessive for what was eaten compared to other places we have eaten in at a third of the cost and tasting much better. Value for money... More
