Went to the Waymarker with friends for early lunch. Sandwiches and cakes were delicious and fresh. Didn't have any cooked food but what we saw being served to others looked great, served up attractively and from the looks on people's faces also delicious. Spotlessly clean there, with a good outside area to sit in when weather permits. Very warm welcome... More

We ended up here after a Google search and trip advisor reviews. I was searching as some people in the group wanted a lunch and some wanted afternoon tea. This amazing place had such good reviews we couldn't not try it. Someone described it as a hidden gem and I can not disagree with this, it really is! The service... More

Stopped here to get gluten free cream tea. Really impressed with restaurant itself and the food. Staff were ultra nice and helpful. Dogs allowed outside and also in the covered area outside which was helpful when it rained! Daughter had calamari from the starter menu and they were happy to serve with chips for her. Already planning return trip.

The food was amazing! All four of us had different dishes and loved them all. Then you have got to try the scones - they are literally the best! Butternut squash and cinnamon and raisin...yummy! Great for all weathers with inside and outside seating and lovely friendly staff :) Definitely a place to visit!

We were in the Falmouth area and wanted a traditional cream tea so did a google search for 'Falmouth Cream Tea'. Google maps sent us around 8 miles in the opposite direction and we were a bit dubious when we ended up in the back of beyond, with my husband questioning if i had put in the correct address. However,... More

Not only a fab cream tea, but also savoury scones that were to die for. Tricky to find, but look for the small road markers.

Discovered this resturant through my sister . A hidden gem near Falmouth. We went for Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. The roast was excellent and the roast potatoes were superb I opted for a small plate and wasn't disappointed the others in our party had the regular roast. A lovely selection of deserts which were yummy. Everything was source... More
