This was my first visit. The restaurant is very attractive and constructed of high quality local materials. For those who like to eat outside there is a lovely view of Restormel Castle. The menu was exciting and imaginative. I tried the Arancini. I didn't expect to find this Sicilian dish here. It was the first time I've tasted it and... More

We took the scenic route to The Duchy Garden Centre and walked from Lostwithiel via Restormel Castle. The location is stunning and every element of the Garden Centre is immaculate and well thought out. The "green" credentials are as expected, with even the chairs made from recycled materials! The shop is full of interesting gifts and the plant centre has... More

We visit the duchy nursery every time we are in the area and it never fails to impress. Good quality food and service every visit. Excellent value in a beautiful location. The go to lunch destination whatever the weather. I appreciated the seamless way they met the needs of a wheelchair user and the baby in buggy. Top class.

Duchy of Cornwall cafe serves freshly prepared, generous portioned food made where possible from local ingredients. This cafe is part of their plant nursery and is a little off the beaten track in Duchy woodland with a spectacular view across to Restormel castle. We had two lovely meals there. It's also great for breakfast. Good coffee, friendly attentive waitresses :... More

(£8.95) My friend had risotto rissoles in tomato sauce ... so tasty, (£6.95) we shared so had a nice combination. Great value for delicious home cooked food. Better... More

The nursery was at the back of our cottage so it was must. Very good and varied selection of plants and gifts. Cat asleep in a basket very cute (for real).

Whilst on a recent trip to Cornwall visiting friends we took shelter in this nursery due to very heavy rain. When the weather eased slightly we wandered around the excellent nursery and shop, then deciding to have a spot of lunch in their cafe/restaurant. The service was impeccable and attentive. We were quickly seated, proferred menus and our drinks order... More

Went for lunch today, Looking at the menu, it's a bit different from standard cafe food, and they've used a lot of local and organic produce. Being Duchy brand means there is a small premium to pay price wise, but for your money you get really nice food and good portions. There were also specials. I had the steak baguette... More

I live in Devon and had always enjoyed a trip down to The Duchy Nursery and lunch in the cafe. On a sunny day it’s lovely to sit on the terrace and take in the views towards Restormel Castle. When it first opened (a couple of years ago) I was always impressed by the choice of dishes and quality of... More
