Bloody marvellous!

My only complaint is that the selection of food and cake all looked so amazing I didn't know what to go for, so I know I must return to try more. We Came here yesterday for lunch, and I'm so glad I did, it was already busy by 12.30 but we were lucky to get a table fairly quickly. I... read more

This is a perfect venue for meeting friends and enjoying a sumptuous lunch. Prices are reasonable and the options on the menu range from homemade soups various "vegi" dishes and delicious homemade cakes. This is such a popular venue that you sometimes have to wait a while for a vacant table, but it is well worth the wait. The nursery... More

We visited here primarily for the cafe. The cafe offered table service which was quick even though they were very busy. There were clouding books for the kids and a small selection of toys for younger diners. We had a cream tea which was good but not very generous with the cream. The setting was lovely however. The garden centre... More

We stopped here on a rainy day for a cake and coffee. A beautiful little spot even in the rain. Lovely homemade cakes and great coffee. All the other meals looks fantastic and very generous. There is also a fantastic shop attached with lots of gifts and garden ware.

Good varied menu. Food good. Coffee in cups was a little cool. When we went again we chose a cafetière which meant coffee stayed hotter. Great views

A bit off the beaten track up a long narrow road. Well worth the visit though with excellent food, lovely seating areas inside and out, and of course a very wide selection of plants.

We've had lunch here a number of times, the food is always good, the outlook is lovely. We arrived at 12.30 on a Tuesday to a queue!. Not many places situated on their own in the country have that problem, it shows that their food is good. My only moan, is that a number of months ago they stopped serving... More

The Duchy of Cornwall Nursery and Cafe is very smart and for such an isolated place attracts a lot of visitors, it has wonderful views, a very very expensive but very smart shop with luxurious goods at steep prices. The plants are very well laid out and look to be in excellent condition. The cafe is always crowded, this was... More
