Next time you visit Wreckers in St Austell ask the staff how lomg will I have to wait for my meal?We went there on a Saturday night and waited over an hour for our meal It seemed to me that a full restaurant did not have enough staff on duty, or just inexperienced to cope When we complained we felt...

I am upset reading your comments after trying to solve the issue with you myself, having explained as to why your food took 42 minutes (not over an hour) to get to your table. You received numerous apologies for the delay and were given drinks off your bill to compensate. After apologising profusely I could not have done anything further... More

Thank you to all the staff at Wreckers for making our Christmas meal so enjoyable. Everyone has been raving about the food and most of those who had opted for 2 courses enjoyed it so much that they ended up having 3. It was all delicious. The games on the table kept us all amused all evening and fun was... More

What a lovely restaurant, the views of the harbour, with the tall ships docked, was spectacular. It was a very comfortable restaurant, and the food was brilliant, and such a beautiful spot.

Genuinely faultless in all aspects. Lovely atmosphere, very relaxing and quick service. We had the fish mixed grill from the specials board, 2 for £25, bargain, the fish was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Regrettably couldn't fit in a desert, but they too looked amazing from what I could see being taken to other tables. Would highly recommend.

I visited Wreckers on the evening of 6 November with several friends. We were impressed with the efficient and friendly service. My main course was seafood grill, a mixture of fish, all cooked perfectly and served with potato cake and a bed of vegetables. Absolutely mouth watering and washed down with wonderful Betty Stogs ale from Skinners' Brewery in Truro.... More
