Well worth a visit

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

This is a beautiful spot for lunch. We were lucky to be there on a glorious day and really enjoyed our lunch on the terrace with views across the valley to Restormel Castle. I would particularly recommend the open crab sandwich.

We came here for my birthday lunch on 9th July. The food was delicious - we had the fish specials and the waitresses were friendly and attentive.

Over priced, staff were efficient but pushed to the limit, the food was average, mean amount of bacon in sandwich and a tiny dollop of clotted cream to share between two scones. Would not bother to return.

The menu was varied. Staff were kind. The fresh ingredients were such a treat, much of the menu made on the premises. We were welcomed to stay a long time, eating a delicious lunch in this friendly atmosphere. Don't miss the shop and the nursery gardens and greenhouses.

On a very hot day, one of us had cream of tomato soup (which was excellent) and the other had a delicious bacon sandwich. The dog had a drink of clean water from a raised bowl, and a snooze in the shade of a garden umbrella. It wasn't too crowded on a weekday and the staff were very attentive.
