Wonderful experience

One of our Cornish treats. Delicious food, good wine, nice atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff. One can't ask for more. They even offered my friend to make her a special sugar free dessert as long as she let them know upon booking next time. Will definitely be back when in Cornwall... read more

My partner and I visited Cornwall for the first time a few weeks ago. I was told to make sure to visit The Bean Inn while I was there. So glad we did. The day we decided to go for food was very last minute and when we got there they were very busy, but the lovely waitress still found... More

The food here is some of the best vegan food we've eaten in Cornwall. It's very creative, fresh and extremely tasty. We enjoyed the cashew and brazil nut loaf roast dinner and the Moroccan Vegetable and Chick Pea Chermoula Casserole. We're just sorry we didn't leave room for dessert! The atmosphere is also very lovely and romantic with candles on... More

Amazingly tasty, colourful and freshly cooked food. The ambience is chilled and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Would definitely recommend. We loved it and stayed at the B&B above and we aren't even vegetarian. Would defiantly visit again.

We visited this restaurant for my husband's birthday meal - he is a vegetarian and I am not. The food was delicious and full of flavour - it felt healthy, but indulgent at the same time. The restaurant itself was simple and comfortable, and I like the art on the walls and quirky cushion covers. Our waitress was friendly and... More

I was treated to a meal at The Bean Inn for my birthday and went along with veggie/vegan family, I was not disappointed at all! So nice to know that everything on the menu is veggie, and nothing has been stirred with a meaty spoon or the stocks not veggie etc, etc!! The Waitress found out it was my birthday... More

They serve a simple pasta so my three year old was happy!!! Great veg food full of flavour slight hiccup with my halloumi starter which was sorted straight away. Was great not to be the minority on the menu. As we had kids with us and the room we were in was so small it felt like we had to... More

Although there is plenty of choice, the food is not anything to get excited about. Service is really slow and everybody can hear each others conversations as this is basically a house turned into a restaurant, so living rooms are used for dining in. The waitress did not recommend anything, and it took an hour to receive our main meal... More

Have just walked a week of the SWCP, and we voted this the best restaurant of the lot. Slightly quirky, as it is the ground floor of a house/B&B. However the food was really excellent, and tasty vegetarian dishes. Service was attentive and the chef came out for a chat at the end. Wine list had some good bottles on... More

We only went here because our first choice of restaurant was fully booked and, my god, I am so pleased we did. The food was exquisite- in both presentation and taste. The menu is designed to make the vegetarian dishes vegan if required but to be honest most dishes were vegan anyway. Service was good. I can't wait to go... More
