We were visiting the Padstow area for the day and were looking for something to eat. We selected The Basement from the menu displayed and were glad we did. The coffee and green tea where great. The food was outstanding for the price. A simple menu but the two dishes we selected where cooked beautifully and tasted excellent. A great... More

We booked and had dinner on a cold November evening but were wormed by good service and good food. They offer a £22 for 2 courses, or £25 for 3 courses which was excellent VFM. There is also a very reasonable wine list. We “walked in” for breakfast the following day and were not disappointed in a very hearty full... More

Having read the reviews, booked a table for Friday night, we were not disappointed. Attentive staff, good service and importantly great food made for a great night out. Good value on both food and wine, if you want well cooked food and presentation I can highly recommend The Basement, given the local celebrity chefs that abound in Padstow and Rock... More

Staying in Padstow with family and friends, we wanted to have a nice breakfast without cooking, so decided to try The Basement. We sat in the outside area in the marquee which was nice and warm with the patio heaters on. Between us we had a variety of items from the menu, overall the quality was excellent with special mention... More

We went to this place on our last night in Padstow. It's a small place, with seemingly only two staff, but they're very friendly and make delicious food. I had a red deer suet pudding followed by pork belly on black pudding. Everything was perfectly cooked and very nicely seasoned. The price is a ridiculous bargain for such quality food.

Just finishing a brilliant breakfast with perfect americano. Great start to the day. All our party of 4 loved their Cornish breakfasts, sandwiches & brews.

Three of ate from the set menu on a cold, wet Saturday evening in November. Although we've been visiting Padstow for 20 years, have never eaten here beforehowever we booked as the menu looked a little different from the norm. 2 courses were £22 and 3 courses for £25. The food is robust and hearty but thoughtfully presented. The kids... More
