Very pleasantly surprised by the Kitchen. Easy to overlook, unassuming and very small, but thoughtful, modern British menu. Great local ingredients carefully prepared by friendly staff.

We came about The Kitchen restaurant purely by mistake as another Polperro Establishment called The Somewhere Restaurant were left 3 phone messages requesing a reservation and could not be bothered to return my calls which was very fortunate for ourselves as I must agree with all the great reviews that this is certainly the best in Polperro, from entering the...

We were lucky to get a booking due to a cancellation. The restaurant feels very homely and the Kitchen is an apt name. The staff could not have done more to welcome us, explain the menu ingredients, and offer tasters to ensure we all had a very satisfying meal. Note the Kitchen is now open evenings five days a week... More

Make sure you book! Worth travelling to Polperro for. A small restaurant so the tables are small. Food and service very good and excellent food. Watch out for the cheese board for one. It's enough Cornish cheese and accompaniments for a hungry family. Well priced.

From the jolly conversation when we booked here to the moment the chef and staff said goodbye to us, this was an unforgettable evening. I don't think we've ever felt so welcome and relaxed in a restaurant or tasted food that was as varied, fresh and satisfying. Not hard to see why this little place books up so quickly.The service...

A lovely meal and a great welcome. You are number 1 on trip advisor for a reason. Lovely touches too such as the happy anniversary message with dessert. Great place

We stayed in Polperro and the guest book mentioned and recommended The Kitchen. We had to book as it was full every night. Harry and Karen are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed their hospitality and friendliness throughout the evening. The restaurant is small, but that just promoted the friendly atmosphere further. The food, prepared by Karen, was outstanding. The Cornish... More

We went to The Kitchen for our Wedding Anniversary - I had already checked out the reviews and we were certainly not disappointed. A small and intimate venue but the service was friendly and attentive and the food was "divine" - our starters and steaks were cooked perfectly and we couldn't manage a dessert although Karen had made us an...

After reading the reviews of "The Kitchen" I booked a table for two with Harry. We must say it is one if not the nicest little restaraunts that we have visited in a long... More
