“If You Like Motorway Services This Is The Place For You!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

It's so sad to find that business can get it so wrong. Really the only thing this restaurant has going for it is it's location and I fear it's been trading on this for too long. The staff were miserable and unhelpful and the costs were ridiculous for the quality of the food. Sorry but this is one to avoid in our opinion.

“what fish was that?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Don't make the mistake of ordering 'fish'and chips' here without being specific because if you do, you may find yourself eating heavens knows what, we made that mistake once and it must've been talapia of something similarly disgusting, The next time we went we specifically asked for haddock, but what we got was a haddock but the size of a computer mouse but thinner..when we complained we got a muttered reply something to do with so many grams etc, well if you think that's ok walkers, then try looking at what you get at the galleon fish and chips at mullion, they'll beat you by light years in terms of size, quality and value.. once bitten twice shy, oh by the way in order to give a balanced review..., your chips are very nice though.. we will buy your chips but you can keep your fish.

“Hot and tasty 😋”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Lovely hot food served in a flash for our family of five. My husband said the batter on his fish was light and crisp. All meals served with ample chips which were hot and tasty. We decided to sit at a table inside the restaurant as it was so busy to eat outside. The seagulls were a bit overwhelming, they seemed to know it was lunch time. We wanted to get undercover. The view of the harbour from our table was ideal as we watched the boats entering the harbour as we ate. Our family will return to the restaurant when we are next in Padstow

“A little gem in Padstow.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Neither me or my partner have ever had any issues with the restaurant. The food is always hot and fresh and the service is prompt and friendly. It has a welcoming atmosphere and we would never visit Padstow without going to Walkers!

“In the best part of the village”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Decided to call in as were it was looked appealing. However once inside was a complete different atmosphere. Empty and not at all warming. The service was friendly however just lacking something. Maybe new decor?
