Went with a crowd on a Friday night and it was busy. Cocktails are on the menu, but little expertise on how to serve them was shown. The food was OK, but not exceptional - maybe the fact the meal took 3 hours to complete cast a shadow on our opinion. The wine list has a high mark-up too. Over... More

Travelled down, pre-xmas to celebrate my parent's wedding anniversary. Hadn't been out for a meal in St Austell for a long time so took to Trip Advisor for some guidance. Having read rave reviews I booked a table and we had the pleasure of having lunch there last Sunday. The restaurant was as warm and welcoming as the attentive staff.... More

I really want to give this place 4.5 or 9 out of 10 because almost all the food was lovely and the service was great. As a couple, we had 3 starters, 1 main a side and 2 puddings. Starter or smoked chicken sausage was first rate and the goats cheese terrine was a fabulous re-imagining of a classic combination... More

We were surprised at the venue our friends had chosen, as it looked uninviting from the roadside, however we were so glad we went. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and appropriately attentive. The tables are well spaced out and we had a good view of the kitchen as it is partially open to the restaurant. We were able to mix... More

We dined here on Tuesday night and very nearly continued driving!!! They say never judge a book by it's cover and Austell's is proof of that. A warm welcome awaits you, the kitchen is partially open to the restaurant, like one large chef's table which creates a great atmosphere. We ate from the a la carte menu and the Cornish... More

Four of us ate at Austell's three weeks ago, and were delighted by just about everything. The open kitchens are reassuring, the seating area was spacious, and the food was gorgeous, the waiting staff also deserve a mention as they were polite and discrete, but also on the ball. I can't fault the place.

I read the review and decided we would give it a go, we drove past and from outside nearly had second thoughts. SO glad we didn't. This is a little gem. It has a set menu 3 courses for ยฃ25 but you can mix which we did. The food and service was really excellent. I go to St Austell every... More

I visited this restaurant on Sunday 16th November for my Girlfriends birthday. I went as I has read lots of good reviews on here so thought I had better add my positive feedback as this place is amazing! My girlfriends was treated to a free cocktail on arrival and the staff sang her "happy bday" which was a nice touch.... More
