Excellent service, good food, decent prices

We visited recently and were really pleased with the service we received and the food itself. We ordered the Chateubriand, which was cooked perfectly, and came with lots of sides to make the meal really filling. We'd booked for our anniversary, and with it came a complimentary dessert which was a... read more

Loved the food - the cornish sausage was to DIE for and I wanted more... My latte (I'm a fussy cofffee drinker) was perfectly good and the people serving us couldn't have been friendlier. You have a great view of the harbour too. Would go again!

My Husband and I looked at the menu of this restaurant and decided to try this place and booked a table on Saturday 27th June. We were not disappointed from the moment we sat down to the moment we left. The service was very attentive, we were sat inside to start with and when a table became available outside they... More

I looked up the top 30 restaurants in padstow on trip advisor and we decided to try this restaurant as it had good reviews. We booked an evening meal at 6.30 and I opted for one of the fish courses as I had fallen out of favour with fish for a while and was hoping to be converted . I... More

The must visit place for the Best Cream Tea Ever ! They were amazing - 2 beautiful fresh baked scones with generous portions of strawberry jam and clotted cream. The location was great - just by the harbour but away from the main crowds. The setting was lovely and relaxing, prices were very reasonable. Would definitely recommend this place.
