Our comprehensive wine list includes plenty of unusual choices available by both the bottle and the glass, with selections made daily to complement the restaurant menu. Our enticing deli menu and ‘to die for’ Cornish afternoon tea can be served in your room or anywhere else you like at any time.3 course lunch £22.50. 3 course Sunday lunch £25. 3 course dinner £42.50.

Great views, great service and a super menu. It is quiet but not formal. It is first class but not stuffy. The menu was great value for money. The wine list extensive. Some of the champagne was a bit pricey in my opinion when compared to other fine dining restaurants but we simply didn't order... read more

Dined here for Sunday lunch having seen the offer advertised on the net. The restaurant is very nice, plenty of room and stunning views. We were greeted by 2 staff - one who commented that we were for the "meal deal"! The food was very tasty but disappointingly, it was not very hot. The staff although very pleasant, were not... More

The restaurant menus are imaginative with a good choice - some spicy, some Italian influenced dishes and a good choice of meat, vegetarian and fish. It's good quality comfort food rather than overworked chi-chi restaurant food and seems appropriate for the setting.

We took my daughter here recently for an early birthday treat and what a treat it was! The food was great - three specified items from the lunch menu for £22.50 - the service friendly but professional and, not least, the view was gorgeous. Afterwards it was warm enough to sit on the terrace and luxuriate. My only quibble might... More

Pete was made up with your feedback, so thank you. It will also be my pleasure to pass your kind words onto Tom, our head chef, and his team.

We had the set menu which ticked all boxes. Wine comparing for each meal was great. Reserve a table as you may get disappointed.
