Stopped in for a late breakfast before feeding the ducks. Had a great freshly cooked breakfast and a nice toasted tea cake with some drinks. Really pleasant service topped it off which makes it definitely one of the best places to eat in Newquay

Lots of tables outside, plenty more inside a bright and airy building. Free parking by garage and a brief walk around lake to see wildlife before grabbing a bite to eat. Very enjoyable. Great for kids as they can run around and have fun, but beware the water and swans! Had light meal and very enjoyable, friendly staff added to... More

We came across the Lakeside when looking for somewhere for breakfast. The breakfast was so good we booked for steak night on the Wednesday. However when we arrived, the rest of the menu sounded so good, we didn't have a steak!! It is set is beautiful surroundings in the park overlooking the lake and the staff are very friendly. We...

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. As always the staff are fabulous and attentive but not in your face. Mussels were... More

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.
