Excellent food, service good.

We are visiting Cornwall on holiday and stopped off during our coastal walk for some lunch in Wreckers. The main menu was excellent with lots of choice and also an extensive lunch menu for lighter bites. The food was really good with locally sourced produce.

The staff were all lovely - very chatty and helpful. The food also was top notch; we enjoyed 3 courses and loved every mouthful. The menu is a little pricey but definitely worth it and we were surprised at how cheap the wine selection was! Lovely view of harbour/sea from outside dining area and inside well presented. Absolutely must try!

Nice interior - we have been here many times and enjoyed the food. They like to use local produce but are inclined to run out and often the special board advises 'no longer available'. After two years we have been told the menu is due to be revamped however to date this has not happened. As we Visit every month... More

Whilst staying in downtown Charlestown harbour, we decided to venture out in the cold for a short walk to find a restaurant that might cater for a group of 12 or so... We came across Wreckers in an old boat shed. Great find, great place... cozy, warm and could fit us all in very comfortably for dinner... The choice of... More

Decided to go here after a walk around the town and we were pleased we did. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. I had the sea bass special while my parents had sea bass and fish and chips. My wife had an excellent cream tea while my daughter loved her chocolate cake.

Tremendous selection of fish and shellfish based specials. Try the turbot if it's on! Range of deserts provide a satisfying finish to the meal. Staff helpful and buzzy atmosphere.
