We ate inside the main restaurant on the evening we visited, and it was lovely. Service was very good, choice and quality of food was great, and quite well priced too. Make sure you book for an evening, as it seemed very popular, we can understand why!

We've visited Padstow several times but never eaten at The Basement. Chose it because the menu was varied and interesting, and the prices were reasonable.

Not eaten here but for a coffee or hot chocolate and a piece of cake it is excellent. We went back a second time but unfortunately all of the cake had been sold out!! Good to see is so busy in January.

Once again another memorable meal here certainly would recommend. As they were fully booked inside we ate in the conservatory add-on but would still recommend.

This was our first visit to The Basement and I'm sure it won't be our last. We were in Padstow heading home and stopped to pick up pasty supplies and to find breakfast. We're so pleased we chose to eat here. The breakfast was great value for money, well cooked, very tasty and the staff were super friendly.
