Food wasn't bad but didn't justify the price / over complicated menu and over worked dishes will not recommend or ever return

another great meal at No.6, the smoked haddock risotto was a lovely starter, followed by the pork....then the Fairground dessert....mmmm, partner had the oyster, hogget. Must confess neither of us had heard of hogget, basically a lamb which Is over 1 year old, melted in his mouth... Staff were excellent...we will return.

When Mr Loafer told me he had booked lunch in Padstow over the Easter weekend I thought he had lost the plot. It is normally the beginning of the season proper, unless the weather is dire. As people who can avail of the charms of year round Padstow I like to let the visitors to the area go about their... More

Friendly service, but otherwise nothing special about this restaurant. Oysters served in a box of pebbles made them difficult to eat and were disappointing. Raw scallops with kimchi - again lacked any flavour. Venison was the best thing we ate, but slightly strange as we were hoping for amazing seafood being so close to the sea. Parts of the dessert...

Can honestly say it was the best food I have every eaten and the an experience I hope to enjoy again. From entering the restaurant to leaving you are treated superbly nothing is to much and anything you ask about the menu is explained in great detail. Five of us dined on a Saturday lunchtime, we opted for the Al... More

What a place to have on our doorstep. Cherished for birthdays, anniversaries or any occasion we can decide is special enough to be marked, we always love coming to No.6. Three of us booked lunch on 8th April and it was the best one ever. We do say this every time we go, but really, surely next time can't be... More

We visited No 6 for the 2nd time this year over Easter and we were once again very impressed! The staff remembered us and the same fantastic service was offered to us - everything from hanging our coats up on arrival to advising the best pre dinner drinks, going into detail about the delicious menu on offer and genuinely making...

Food was excellent. My starter was delicious chicken pearl barley with the pork for main. One of the best meals I have had. My partner, who isn’t a huge seafood fan, raved about her fish dish which came with a wonderful crab sauce. Dessert was delicious – we opted for the “Taste of the Fairground” which was a lot of...
