This tiny restaurant was recommended to us by family and we had an enjoyable evening. It has quite a traditional feel - i don't think it would suit young children. Very civilised and calm with friendly service. The food is very prettily presented with some tasty canapés.

Superb food and service, a real gem of a place. Definitely worth a visit, we were recommended the restaurant by our B & B owners. 3 course meal with wine was £90.00, worth every penny.

We have eaten here on many occasions and the standard of the food and welcome is second to none. You will not find anywhere else as good as this, everything is prepared lovingly by Fred, even down to the butter and wonderful breads. Presentation is stunning, and the food tastes as good as it looks. We had a wonderful evening... More

We recently sent our friends on an anniversary meal and they came back buzzing about the whole experience, so we tried it for ourselves and were not disappointed! The food we ordered was amazing and perfectly presented. We particularly enjoyed the surprise of the beautiful complimentary appetisers. A cosy, relaxing atmosphere and the service was second to none. Thank you!

I was looking to book for Rick Stiens place in Padstow but after reading the reviews about the Dinning Room thought we would give a try. Not sure where to start really, from the moment we arrived I knew that we... More
