Great nursery and very pleasant spot to enjoy their very good food and drink. They have an interesting gift shop selling good produce, toys, books and houseware as well as directly garden related items.

This is an excellent spot in a beautiful location . We only had a coffee but by lunchtime after we had wandered around the extensive plant area, the restaurant was full so would love to return to eat. A very large assortment of plants and all are helpfully labelled with full instructions as to their care. So glad we made... More

As a 'local' have been here a few times. Location wonderful with views across the valley to Restormel Castle. Food very nice indeed with friendly service. Good value with the added advantage of being adjacent to a first class nursery.

Sooner, or later, when living in Cornwall, one feels that they should contribute to the 'Duchy' in one way or another. We did by visiting their Nursery which is not too far from Lostwithiel and well signed. After all, Charles would never miss an opportunity to get you to part with your money especially in one he has an interest... More

Lunch at the cafe where I decided to have the light leek, potato and cannelini bean stew, very tasty, great portion and good portion of garlic bread to go with it. My husband had a baguette of mozzarella with roasted vegetables again very nice. Well done. Very reasonable too.

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
