The food at the Central is very good indeed, especially whenever Sunday Roast is on the menu. Our waitress called LAUREN was exceptionally quick efficient and helpful with a ready smile. Next time we visit the Central I hope to see her promoted, before some other establishment snaps her up.

Once again visited the central in Newquay. Had steak on a stone. Really good concept. You must try if in Newquay. Finished off with a couple of killer cocktails in the upstairs cocktail bar. All round good experience

I ordered mine but my other half ordered 3 drinks whereby the bartender was very rude and said we do not do this for all 3 of them. His manners and customer service was awful!... More

Visited on a Monday evening with the family. 1st thing of note was the Central Inn was a popular vibrant place and the food was delicious, well presented and reasonably priced. Would certainly recommend.

I visited Newquay in July and enjoyed visiting the Central Inn each time. During the day we enjoyed the reasonably priced wine and the good food outside and enjoyed the nightlife later on. Definitely recommend this great all round place.

Although they do food here we only stopped for drinks. Our first stop as we went into town for the night. Very busy. Seating area outside was great. Good atmosphere.
