I ordered leek and potato soup garnished with Primrose herd bacon and my wife a crab sandwich with 2 cups of coffee. Unfortunately the leek soup was no longer on the menu and replaced by mushroom soup. It was the worst soup I have ever tasted, thin consistency, weak mushroom flavour and overpowering bitterness of black pepper leaving a distinct... More

Great relaxed place for coffee and authentic pasty. Cool music from Radio 6 in background. Friendly staff and good spot at window for people watching. Definitely recommend.

Nice food and pleasant service but at £8 for what was basically a bread roll, two tablespoons of scrambled egg and one thin slice of salmon, very pricey

Needing a nice sit down lunch, a friend and I decided to revisit PICNIC after previous good experiences. They have a varied menu of sandwiches on a board at the back and the food is of a good quality. I was caught out by the prices however, as they fail to include the prices on the board if you decide... More

Hi Rebecca, I'm really glad that you enjoyed your lunch and am sorry that you found our pricing to be too expansive. The board behind the counter in indeed for takeaway sandwiches but there are also menus on the counter for eat in customers with the prices clearly displayed. If you want to enjoy a sandwich without the accompaniments you... More

Had a fabulous lunch here with my sister and 8 year old daughter. We all declared it a big success. If it was on the other side of the road enjoying the spectacular views then it really would be perfect. As it was we had a great lunch and planned the shops we were going to pop into afterwards. Well... More

I go to Picnic Cornwall at least once a week for lunch. The Food is really delicious and I love that it is all locally sourced. You can get food to takeaway as well. The staff are all lovely and very polite and helpful. It's my favorite place to go for lunch and I really like the atmosphere :)

We popped into Picnic on a cold January day at late lunchtime. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Although they were running low on pasties we opted for one cheese & veg and one vegan pasty. (We are not vegetarian!) both were delicious and I would highly recommend the (gluten free) vegan pasty. Coffee was decent and the apple and... More

The place looks nice and feels very cosy. Friendly, unformal staff, nice food though sandwiches are not exciting in my opinion. Cakes look just fantastic.

Had lunch at Picnic today. Initially, we're going to eat outside but weather a bit cool. Pleased to find that Picnic are dog friendly and we ate inside with our 2 cavaliers. Enjoyed sausage breakfast rolls and great coffee/hot chocolate. Staff were very friendly and food and drinks arrived promptly. And if you were the bloke in there today who... More
