“lovely views, fab ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

So many " proper " ice cream flavours to choose from, it was hard to decide !
Nice big mug of tea, friendly staff, relaxing viewing sitting quayside, watching the world go by. .

“Not hungry enough to want our business”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We attempted to book this restaurant in advance after reading reviews on Trip Advisor but unfortunately they didn't bother to reply until I telephoned to see if they were still trading. I eventually got a reply but far too late as I had already booked up Squid Ink and had the most memorable meal. Your loss Trawlers.
PS: Your website is well out of date with events etc and needs life injected into it.

TOTQ, Manager at Trawlers on the Quay, responded to this review, October 17, 2013
Dear Happy\Hikers we have already corresponded with you via email and we have apologised for the late reply and would like to make clear that now we have started our winter opening hours and are closed two days a week (Monday, Tuesday) but open Wednesday through to Sunday. Any emails will be answered first thing Wednesday morning.
We value new customers with the highest regard and would hate to think that you have a negative opinion of us before setting foot through the door.
I can assure you that the service we offer is in no way reflected in the website or ‘late reply’.
We were lucky enough to be 1 of only 8 Gold award standard restaurants in Cornwall in this year’s Taste Of The West awards. We feel this alone reflects our high standards in both food and customer care.
Squid Ink is without doubt a fantastic restaurant but after the comment you left on their page i do not feel like it was our loss at all.

“Wonderful Seafood Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Another visit to Trawlers by my wife and myself and another wonderful experience at a reasonable price. My crispy squid was excellent and the Monk cheeks were cooked perfectly. The wine list is not expensive, but reasonably priced for a restaurant. The service was also faultless. We will be back again soon.

“So delicious I can still taste the flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Really tasty flavours in a calm, welcoming setting overlooking the quay. Really impressed that our comments about 'tad too much garlic in the special' were well received ... so much so, that we rebooked for our last night! And every bite was delicious. We just wish that we lived nearer.

Friendly staff. Good menu using locally sourced produce. Special surprise dessert for our 25th wedding anniversary added the finishing touch
