Ok so it’s not the best looking place to eat in Boscastle, but the staff are super friendly and the food is more than acceptable. Sails offer a sit in or take away service and originally we were going to have a takeaway, but my daughter asked if we could sit in and we had no reason not to so... More

An early evening fish and chip supper sat outside was classic English holiday fare. But it was more than that. Yes the fish and chips were excellent, as good as any I have had before with melt in the mouth fresh fish, hand cut tasty chips and possibly the best mushy peas ever.

We had lunch in the cafe in July and it was great value, 2 meals for £12, I had chicken schnitzel and my hubby had ham and eggs. Really well presented and tasted great. The location was beautiful even though we were next to a road but the road is very narrow so you don't get much traffic on it.... More

Friendly staff and simple but good food at affordable prices. Enough choice for children and they've got nice smoothies. There's outdoor seating, so one can enjoy looking at Boscastle.

We have been going to Boscastle for around 15 years now and have never been impressed with sails under its previous owners. Things have really changed though and we will definitely be eating at sails much more when we go back to Boscastle. My wife had a sandwich one night and the filling was more than generous so we went... More
