Mediocre food

The wait staff were good. But the food was just average. The view has nice. There is nothing else to say.

My husband & I stayed at the Metropole a few years ago and compared to many B&Bs in Padstow it rates very low for us and we wouldn't stay again. But have just returned from 3 nights B & B in Padstow and everywhere was booked up to eat so I phoned the Brasserie and they had a table. And... More

Good home made food with decent sized portions which offer value for money. The Afternoon Tea consisted of scones, biscuits, cake and sandwiches full of a variety of fillings along with a decent pot of... More

We are/were frequent visitors and last visited in June this year, could not previously fault food or service, however, this was not our experience this time.

In our hotel. Good service and good food. The fresh crab sandwiches are very good, particularly with a large glass of Shiraz!
