I have eaten here on a number of occasions and have never been disapointed, excellent friendly staff, great service, fab surroundings and yummy food, The Chowder is exceptional, and the cakes are to die for. Nice seating area outside. If i had one critisism, it would be that it is quite expensive, but ideal for a treat.

The staff are super helpful here and were very knowledgable about the local area also. The cakes they serve are simply divine and it makes a wonderful place to pit stop after a long drive!! We bought some lovely little plants, including herbs and ferns.

Great walk from our cottage on the duchy estate, so glorious afternoon tea didn't feel nearly as naughty as it should - followed by some plant shopping at the nursery

We stay near Lostwithiel every Easter and the Nursery and cafe are a MUST visit. Our Grandchildren love the cakes and desserts, while the adults like the beautifully cooked lunches and the wine and beer. My wife and I keep saying we must try something different, but we always succumb to the Belly Pork, divine.

We love coming here regularly - especially if the family are visiting. The menu is seasonal, interesting and the food and coffee are always delicious. As an added bonus this visit I rang up at very short notice requesting the chef to cook an extra cake for my father's 60th birthday. As always they exceeded expectations with a beautiful delicious...

Excellent restaurant/Cafe with tasty fresh food, served with a smile. A garden centre with healthy looking plants and readily available advice from the staff. Small shop with "different" things to tempt you. Recommended.

We visited the restaurant for afternoon tea having spent a couple of hours wandering around the nursery choosing plants and browsing in the shop. I had a cup of really delicious coffee and the most wonderful coffee cake I have ever tasted. My husband highly recommends the fiery ginger beer and lemon cake. The restaurant is situated in a new...

The nursery was well stocked with a wide variety of sturdy looking plants - surprising for so early in the year but then this is Cornwall where the daffs are already coming to an end while ours in Sussex haven't peeped through the soil yet! The shop is also well stocked with most of the usual things, but also some... More

We have been here many times over the years whenever we are in this part of the world and have never been disappointed by either the food or the staff. Lamb shank was superb and the chowder is lovely. Big portions but I'm not complaining! Lunch is served from 12 - best get there slightly early as the restaurant fills... More
