First time for an evening meal here and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The service was excellent; friendly, efficient and attentive without being overbearing. Especially impressed as the waiter was on his own and the place was quite busy, well done Luke. I also liked the fact that when I booked, he checked out if it was for a special... More

The food was excellent, cooked infront of you and so tastey, nothing is too much trouble. Plenty of choice and enough not to leave you hungry. The owner/waiter is always nearby but not in your face. The compactness makes it cosy. I will be back.

Again excellent and so nice not to have half the plate taken up with chips. The sauce was delicious... More

Friday lunch and we wondered why, if so great, there were only four of us eating. The evening menu looks more tempting but our choices were from versions of a burger with insipid tastes; "Bubble & Squeak" and "Pulled Brisket"; too much stodge. Service and bread offered were good, but best olive oil is spoilt by Balsamic. We like the... More

Inspired to visit as a result of feature in Cornwall Living magazine. Walked in last night and were treated to a table at the front of the restaurant - too well lit for a romantic night out - but great for father and son to watch the chefs at work. Fantastic venison and beef sirloin, perfectly cooked. Tremendous care and... More

This was our first time at Gravy despite being local but will definitely be back for a special occasion. Perfect hospitality was provided by Jenny throughout our evening. It was lovely that even though we were the only table in the restaurant for most of the evening we weren't hassled or felt rushed. There was a nice amount of time... More
