We love the nursery and the plants are generally reasonably priced. The cafe is excellent with very good quality food. Smoked haddock chowder is to be recommended but you will need to be hungry!

The food here is really good plus an excellent selection of home made cakes and scones. As a bonus the gift shop next door is amazing if a little expensive and of course there is the plant nursery outside as well offering good quality plays (huge selection).

Superb food at a reasonable price in an amazing location. Warm yourself up near the fire or spend time dreaming with the view. Staff very friendly.

This nursery used to be THE nursery to visit for excellent advice and excellent plants, flowers and trees. However, the nursery has shrunk, plants are now brought in rather than grown on-site and the expertise has been made redundant. It is now a small and over-priced plant retailer. The focus now seems to be on promoting the vastly over-priced shop... More

The restaurant is simply excellent, lovely setting looking across the valley towards Restormal Castle. Very large fire place with a giant wood burner normally in steam. I had the belly pork with the crackling just right,they have a good selection of sea food on the menu as well. Comfy seats by the fire if you just want a coffee or... More

We stopped here with teens and grandparents in tow. A very happy "accident" as we drove through Lostwithiel looking for a tea break somewhere. It was well worth the little detour off the main road. We all indulged in a wonderful cream tea and a wander around the well stocked garden centre and shop to stretch our legs. There are... More

In December 2014 stopped off for a cooked lunch. My husband was in raptures with his belly pork roast and my turkey roast was filling (just missed the obligatory Brussel Sprouts). One downside - the ladies' toilets where the toilet roll holders did not secure the rolls in place and toilet rolls were randomly placed unhygienically.

Up a lane East of Lostwithiel paste the golf course is the Dutchy of Cornwall Nursey. Excellent cafe; more like a restaurant. Not the cheapest place to eat but good quality with friendly staff. Eco friendly. Sit down service.Coffee Latte £2.30. Brie & Cranberry baguette £5.95. Main courses about £11 each. Lovely log fire burning. Plenty of parking. Large selection... More

We spent a few hours walking around the vast choice of plants, flowers and gifts for sale here, the range of choice was so vast, you could get any thing you desire here for your garden, and we found the staff go out of their way to assist and help, also full of knowledge, then the café, if you want...
