We were welcomed like old friends and this was only the 2nd time we have been to Austells. As before, the food was exquisite, we were lucky enough to be seated by the kitchen so could watch Brett & his team prepare our meals & even chat to Brett about the food and his culinary tips. Throughout the meal we... More

We frequently visit Cornwall and we are always looking out for new places to eat. This was our first time at Austell's. We were not disappointed the service was warm and welcoming and Sunday Lunch was to die for. So good that we have booked to eat there again when we visit Cornwall in May. Sunday Lunch was different, unusual,... More

Very very slow service - staff were all lovely and apologetic but there were clearly not enough people working for a full floor on a Saturday night. Menu was rather boring and the food itself not great - very salty and purées features heavily.

Mother's Day lunch at Austell's was excellent! Creative and varied menu, delicious food and friendly service. I am looking forward to returning for dinner - what a treat to find a place of this caliber in St Austell.

We visited Cornwall for the weekend, staying in a hotel in St Austell and we obviously checked with Tripadvisor as to where to eat, ranked number 1 in St Austell is Austell's, a buzzing ambiance, we were a little early so sat at the bar perusing the wine list and menu, we were made as welcome as any regular would...

Very attentive staff coupled with excellent food means this is the place to go for a real food treat. Friendly, but intimate atmosphere in the kitchen visible restaurant. The thing I enjoy the most is that the menu always surprises - the food is always better than it sounds. Never been left disappointed. Good wine selection adds to the event.
