Very nice food

Stopped for lunch after plant shopping. Very nice restaurant with a good choice of freshly cooked meals. It was a bonus to see the chef prepare meals and he clearly loves his job!

My husband and I have always enjoyed visiting the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery. We are lucky to live in Cornwall but haven't been to The Duchy for well over a year (my job meant we had to live in Singapore for a year). All the plants in our garden are from The Duchy and we've always been so pleased to... More

Have been coming here regularly on our visits to Cornwall (approx. 4 times a year) for the past few years. We used to come for the Croque Monsieur, which was delicious. It was taken off the menu, then brought back due to ‘popular demand’, now it’s disappeared again. If something proves so popular that customers ask you to bring it... More

We visit the Duchy of Cornwall Cafe on an annual basis when we visit Cornwall each January. We have always had a lovely lunch, the food is normally great. A visits are timed with a long walk first so the impending late lunch is always very welcome. We arrived today (Mon 18th Jan), at 3.30 to be told that lunch... More

The Nursery and Cafe are well worth stopping at. The food and drinks are very tasty after a long look around the nursery.

The ambience of the place is lovely, especially at Christmas time! The staff is very nice and the food very good. Take some time to stroll around the shop, which has a lovely atmosphere and very nice products.

Stopped by for lunch. No complaints at all, sausage and onion marmalade ciabatta was delicious. And bacon sandwich was enjoyed by my daughter! Lovely atmosphere and the young male serving the food was very polite. Felt that the young blonde lady was a little unfriendly/intimidating, not all that helpful, could try smiling! Shop itself was very Christmassy, the aroma was... More

Well signposted but off the beaten track in the midst of Duchy Estate land, rebuilt a few years ago with excellent car park, loos and a level patio nursery, showcasing plants suitable for the local area ie soil and coastal/sub coastal and river esturial, good quality but not cheap. Shop is currently geared towards Christmas with cards, special gifts etc,... More

My wife and I also visited the DoC Café on 7th November and had a similar experience to the previous reviewer. We were kept waiting for 20 mins and then had to stop a passing waitress to place an order. The two tagines arrived after a further 10 mins (the café was not exceptionally busy by this time) and both... More
