My partner and I were staying in Devon for a short break away from Surrey. I had inadvertently found on-line, Paul Ainsworth's restaurant and determined to visit and eat there. Arriving at an overcrowded Padstow, we discovered the restaurant and entered to be met with an enthusiastic and warm welcome by staff. Not being adventurous, we opted for the set... More

My husband and I were recently down in Cornwall for our annual break. We had arranged to meet up with my best friend who now lives here and she suggested she book us in for lunch at Paul Ainsworth. The restaurant is an old town house tucked away in a street in the middle of town. Upon entering we were... More

We booked for lunch and had a fantastic meal. I would add that what made it more enjoyable than our first visit was being sat upstairs - much more room and a slightly larger table. The other reason was Jordan who looked after us with professionalism, humour and described all the dishes to us when a question was asked. We... More

What a night! We couldn't fault our night here, this was the third time and it only gets better. Alex the manager is amazing and inspires every mouthful, he helped us choose the wine and food to match so well together, everyone is so well informed and really lovely. thanks and see you next year xx

Great set lunch enjoyed by all in party. Great food, some of us had matching wine, other boutique beers. Enjoy the atmosphere here, respectful but not stuffy. Always enough rotation on menu to not feel samey. It's like going round to your "sophisticated" Besties house - where the welcome is warm, the food and drink top notch - and you... More

This was our second visit and it was not as enjoyable as previously. The well rehearsed "hail fellow, well met" cheery greeting sounded false and highly rehearsed rather than spontaneous and genuine. Menu choice is not wide enough for me and the dessert list seems to rely on the fabulous but past glory of the Fairground. Too top the lot,... More

You need a trip to a first class restaurant every so often to experience everything done to perfection. No 6 oozes class and absolutely delivers on taste, presentation and atmosphere. Certainly not cheap but worth every penny.

Went here for lunch on basis of Top Restaurant on TA (which I depend on) and two week stay in Padstow so the time to try all the restaurants. Lunch was only option (all other times booked). Initial greeting from waitress Sarah was great and struck just the right balance. Interior is classy and sophisticated (apart perhaps from odd smoked... More

We have eaten in Michelin one and two star restaurants and found the quality and inventiveness of the food to be on that level. Happily, the service was more causal, and was not stuffy as some of the starred restaurants are. I tried dished that sounded peculiar but tasted heavenly. This was the restaurant highlight of our trip to England
