I lived in Falmouth many years ago and knew the Pavilion well. It is a long time since I last visited and what a difference! The gardens and bandstand remain the same but the bar / restaurant areas have been transformed. The food was excellent. I had the tiger prawn / cod / salmon skewers which were an absolute delight....

This was very close to our B & B, served very nice meals at reasonable cost. Staff were friendly. Beautiful gardens to explore outside the bistro.

Ate here twice in one week as we had family down & have never been disappointed with the whole Garden Room experience. The food is excellent & the service is great. There is always a good choice on the menu plus daily specials. Will definitely eat here again. It's also great just for coffee or drinks. It is spacious with... More

We had Saturday lunch here. The setting is great - the Princess Pavilion gardens. Caters for all - a children's play area, plenty of seating indoors and out. Fully accessible. Dogs also welcome on leads in the external area. The food was reasonably good. We had crab gratin which was tasty but a small portion. And a chicken tikka sandwich... More

We always enjoy the food at the Princess Pavilion and find it good value for money. There is a good menu for Sunday lunch but it's often busy so best to book in advance. The lunchtime menu is varied: excellent quality, well prepared and presented. Although the garden room lacks ambiance, the food more than makes up for it and... More

Thanks for your review. Always good to get feedback from our customers. Our new menu will be starting from 16th May and we will be making one or two very small changes to the garden room. Hopefully this will improve the ambiance. WE hope to see you again soon! xx :-) More

We have eaten at this venue twice this week and we're delighted with the standard of food and the cost. Excellent quality and fresh food prepared and presented well. Although the garden room lacks a little in style, the food more than makes up for the surrounding. Outside is possibly a better experience in terms of the surrounding but the... More

We visit this venue often but eat as rarely as possible. In my opinion expect to pay £10 for food that elsewhere would cost £7 and £15 for a meal that would normally be £10. The menu is not extensive and items are described in what I consider to be pretentious terms. So why do we visit, well the live... More

Beautiful spot in Falmouth. Family friendly. Lovely atmosphere. Massive outdoor space where you can eat and drink, as well as plenty of seating inside as well. The menu is of a good size and the food is tasty. Service is friendly and efficient. You can even walk up from the beach through their gardens which are stunning. All in all,... More
