Having the grand children to stay seemed a good excuse to finally try the meadery. As we live just up the road we are used to seeing the long queues of people waiting outside in peak season. Wished we hadn't bothered. Have to say we couldn't fault the service. Lovely helpful and very attentive staff. The food however left a... More

Went to the Newlyn Meadery about 20 years ago. Couldn`t understand the reason for the extremely dim lighting. Went to the Penzance version yesterday as I thought my memory may have painted a poorer picture than the actual experience. I was wrong. Why the hell would you want to eat in semi darkness with your fingers after choosing from the... More

Didn't have to queue which was good, sat down and had service straight away, food was lovely and great portion size, salad bar was great with plenty of choices. Food arrived swiftly, lovely friendly staff couldn't fault them at all. Done and dusted in an hour perfect on a school night. Would definatly go again

We were a group of about 16 so we had to arrive and que. as you can not reserve a table, the place was busy and very dark you could just about see your food, I just had half chips and salad and a half chicken, you get a small metal platter and go and choose your salad at the... More

Great family favourite for a night out. Fantastic waitress service and tasty food. Food orders are always served quickly and very hot! Really big servings of mains and desserts, you won't leave here feeling hungry!

Contacted before hand with regard to accommodating an allergy and this was handled competently and professionally and totally put me at ease. We visited for my dad's birthday, wouldn't ordinarily attempt a non booking restaurant bank holiday weekend otherwise BUT we only had a short wait for a table despite it being busy, atmosphere was busy but great. Love the... More

We arrived, a party of 3 adults and a 7 year old child, around 5:30pm only to find it didnt open until 6:30 pm - our fault for not checking before going, but we felt it was quite a late opening time for a 'family restaurant'. After looking for other suitable restaurants in nearby Penzance and finding nothing, we returned.... More

Sat upstairs on a large party table on a very busy Sunday night. Babies screaming, toddlers running amok and could not hear the person next to me due to the noise. Food and drink took ages to arrive due to not enough staff and when if did in was just plonked down in front of me. The scampi and chips... More

This is in my opinion the best meadery, the extensive salad bar puts it up a notch or two. Excellent for groups and families, they have plenty of large tables, as well as smaller tables around the side of the dining hall. Old converted cinema that has been themed to medieval banqueting hall. Good value for money, good service and... More

Lots of food at a reasonable price. There is an Open Salad bar. We had Fish chips and pork ribs, which were ok. The servers, who were dressed as "Wenches" were very pleasant.
