My other half and I always make a trip To Austell's when we are in Cornwall. The Lamb main course is our favourite and enjoyed the taster dessert plate especially accommodating to add a dessert from the winter menu which we wanted to try too.

Just had an amazing evening at Austells for a friends birthday, group of eleven people. Great food and lovely service especially from Emma. The little details make it extra special, fresh flavoured bread and homemade fudge. Highly recommended

Went for the Sunday 'pot luck' menu. Had a really lovely birthday meal. From the moment we arrived I was made to feel very special. Birthday confetti on the table and a complimentary birthday drink of my choice to start the evening. Finished with dessert with a birthday candle & Happy Birthday in chocolate on my plate. Excellent attentive service... More

Three of us ate here on a weekday evening. The front of house service is attentive and you are made very welcome. Olives at the bar before being seated are a nice touch. I opted out of first course to make sure I could have a dessert, but appreciated the bread and dipping oil & balsamic glaze bought out pre... More

Although the exterior is less than exciting, once inside there is a pleasant ambience and a friendly reception. The food and service both very good and the whole evening was a pleasant experience. Not sure that this place is suited to wheelchair users without checking first with the restaurant.

The location of this place when we arrived looked a bit sketchy, but once inside it was lovely. Greeted by smiley staff and a very happy and chatty chef, I personally like being able to look into the kitchen! Cocktail on arrival, we like to start in style! Then shown to our tables where we ordered wine, the wine list... More
