This workmanship of this place is to be admired. It is hard to imagine that this masterpiece was built so many years ago. £5 entry was well worth it. The cafe was really great too with delicious Cornwall pasties and cream teas(cream teas were massive!).

I am not a theatre person. But if I had known about this place before my last minute trip to Cornwall, I would have paid for a ticket to see a play here. Any play. The site itself is less than 100 years old, but...More

Thank you for writing such a lovely review. We are about to increase the area of the cafe where dogs are allowed, although we do need to maintain some dog free areas as many visitors do not like being around dogs.
