4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Wondered in here not expecting much. Looked more like a drinking drinking venue, which I think it is of an evening. Was pleasantly surprised to see varied and creative lunch menu, including the excellent mezze. Didn't disappoint, lovely food and helpful staff. Glad we gave it a try.

They have acts on but the day we were there was a steel band called Steelers and they were local youngsters who were contemporary and fantastic getting the... More

My husband & I had the best steak ever last night. It was brought out on a lava stone so cooked to perfection to a person's individual need. The staff were obviously happy in their job & were very friendly & welcoming. Will recommend to friends & family & will visit again if we return to Newquay. Thank you 👊

We visited for a coffee break during out trip to Newquay and we're not disappointed at all, the lattes were delicious and the deluxe hot chocolate is definitely a must!

Great Bar! Food looked amazing(didn't eat though), and there was some good mid-week deals on food. Great atmosphere and busy place.

Enjoyed a meal and a drink here with my partner. Food was lovely, staff were attentive and welcoming. We found a corner booth and we were able to watch Wales beat Belgium in Euro 2016....perfect! 😃

This place does have a bit of a feel of a chain pub at first, but once you get on there and experience the atmosphere that feeling soon dissappears.you will probably have to wait a few minutes to get served being it so busy,but you'll be met with a smile.decent prices,desparados on tap and sharp doorman, so no chance of...

Cook your own steak on a lava stone - great idea and reasonably priced! The service was very good in the restaurant even though it was very busy due to an England football match.

I went to Newquay for a hen weekend and wanted to do a spot of shopping. We were hungry so thought we would try it out. The staff were very friendly and smiley and didn't leave us waiting for long. The food was lovely and worth the money. We booked a table for the evening also as was lovely. We... More
