We had a lovely evening, travelled 300 miles for this and it lived up to every expectation. We had the beef and the monkfish, plus a fairground and a bread pudding. Very reasonably priced wine would recommend to anyone in the padstow area. Even got to meet Paul after the meal. Will be back thank you

Went here with a small party and it was amazing. Attention to detail just incredible. Food and wine unbeatable. Its quite small but no worse for that, you will have to book especially in the summer. Try the Great British Menu dessert: At the fairground............stunning

Fantastic flavoured food. Creative menu with generous portions unlike some 'starred' establishments! Very relaxed, but elegant dining rooms. Staff were friendly but unobtrusive and service was exceptional. So good in fact we went back the day after; the set lunch was incredibly good value.

This is our 4th time here & it just gets better. Staff professional & friendly & they have not changed, which is a bonus these days. Food exceptional, chef can get the most flavours from any ingredient! Menu small & seasonal. Restaurant set out in different rooms in a terraced property, note the tables are rather close together and it... More

Our second visit and it was better than the first - but only by a margin. The pre arrival attention was great with helpful e mails and the service on the day was very good. Staff had good product knowledge and were cheerful and attentive. All three courses were very tasty. My wife did the set menu and thought they... More

We have been much impressed by Paul Ainsworth when we have seen him several times on the Great British Menu. So, a visit to his restaurant was a must-do when we recently spent some time in Cornwall. The restaurant at Number Six was warm and welcoming, as were the staff who greeted us on our visit; chatty and friendly without... More
