Brasserie @ The Met - recommended

Newly rebranded as the Brasserie @ The Met, we ate here several times while staying at the hotel. The food was always delicious and well-presented, and the surroundings are lovely with beautiful views. We love Padstow but if you want to escape the crowds this is a quiet haven.

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.

A very dated and shabby hotel which could do with a super refurbishment, as it borders on depressing. The food is all right, overpriced though, and the staff always look as if the end of the world is nigh. Great view and the coffee is good but I wouldn't eat here again.
