Our favourite place for a cream tea - the scones were lovely, the jam had large whole strawberries and there was plenty of clotted cream. It was nice to sit outside and watch the world go by.

Great place to eat by the quay. Menu was very good although I did think that the Fish Pie should have mentioned that it was a 'deconstructed fish pie' as it was served with individual mussels and salmon and separate piped potato, not your usual fish pie all done in a sauce. Not everyone likes to have to mess around... More

I would recommend this restaurant if you are staying in Padstow. The service was great, the menu offered great variety with locally sourced ingredients and it was really well cooked. I would recommend the Pork!

Good food but disappointed with a £1.50 charge for extra bread when paying c. £150.00 for dinner! Also check bill as we were originally charged for an extra main course.

Came here for morning coffee and returned for lunch because it was nice and shady for our dogs. Great service, tasty lunch and good wine/coffee. £60 for 3 people at lunch with 4 glasses of wine. Thumbs up!

Visited this lovely street cafe bar on a beautiful sunny day. The service and food were exceptional at reasonable prices for the high standard of food served. This place is a must for visitors to Padstow who appreciate good food. I will return in the future.

We visited the basement after reading the reviews on here and were we pleased we had! The food was top quality & staff very welcoming. They were good with our 3 year old daughter & made sure we had everything we needed without overcrowding us. Great place
