A lovely intimate restaurant, with very personal and friendly service. Although this is a vegetarian restaurant, all items on the menu could be made vegan. The food was fresh, hearty and had lovely flavours. Nothing was too much trouble for our waitress who had a brilliant knowledge of the menu. The chef came to speak to us at then of... More

Although neither of us are vegetarians I thought the online menu looked so interesting I would give it a go. I have to say the food was incredible, so tasty and fresh and the staff couldn't be more helpful. I had the Moroccan casserole and my husband the potato cakes with tarka daal and pea curry, we enjoyed our food... More

We stayed in the B&B here for our anniversary and enjoyed most of our meals here as well. Such a fine vegan/organic selection, and they don't skimp on anything. Stylish, peaceful, elegant and absolutely delicious. Loved the Knicker(Chocker)bocker Glory finish. YUUM. Will happily go again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Bean Inn. The restaurant was made up of a series of small rooms which gave a more intimate if a little cramped atmosphere. Although waiting staff are friendly and attentive, they were probably a little lacking in experience (we dined on a Saturday). The menu provided was well thought out with a wide... More

The food at The Bean Inn is exceptional, so tasty and very fresh. My wife has certain allergies and spoke to Paula the chef the day before we wanted to visit to check some of the ingredients. Paula was amazing, she offered to adapt some of the recipes to suit my wife's allergies. There was no hesitation from Paula and... More

Love the food here, full of flavour and with plentiful vegan options. Because it's attached to a guest house,the service is a little amateur, but the cooking makes up for it. Lovely to have vegan options for pudding and even a vegan cheeseboard, which we didn't try. The curry and tagine we had were both superb after a long days... More

We've just enjoyed a lovely evening at The Bean Inn at Carbis Bay. It's only small but the menu sounded lovely and the food was absolutely delicious. I loved the freshly baked herb dough balls which came with the Roast Tomato, Basil and Lima Bean Soup. My main course, a fruity and colourful Moroccan casserole with couscous was beautifully presented... More
