We took 30 friends and relations to celebrate our Golden Wedding. We occupied the whole of their upstairs room for the afternoon. All our guests were very complimentary about the food and excellent service. It was a most enjoyable occaision.

We visited the Mount Edgcumbe for a meal to celebrate our third wedding anniversary. We opted for a Sunday lunch, and we're very impressed. The restaurant is charming. Well decorated and full of character, including a lovely seating area in a cave inside the building. The staff were friendly, and happily found a more suitable chair for my wife, who... More

A group of 4 of us visited for dinner last night, we had such a lovely evening. The food was perfect and the service from all the staff was excellent - the best we've had in a long time. We will definitely be going back.

We were hugely disappointed with the food. It was tasteless and was like mass catering. It is such a shame as the refurb is amazing! It is so stylish! Our food to be honest was inedible. The staff were totally inexperienced and had no idea how to serve or advise on food.

I know the owners would have been embarrassed with the service we received. I had specifically suggested the ME to my Brother and his wife because I had had very good meals and service there before. They must think I'm madder than they did before :-) Any restaurant can get poor quality meat supplied on occasion (although the better the... More

We have bee living in the area for over 20 years and didn't know about this place. The greeting was friendly easy going. We were invited to have a pre dinner drink out in the garden. Nice touch as restaurants usually want you at the table as soon as you get there. Seated by the window in a nice spot.... More

One of our favourite places to go. The garden is great for the kids and the restaurant is also lovely. We often take the kids to the rocks on the Common first and treat them to a bowl of chips afterwards. My son particularly loves that you have a choice of fat or skinny chips! The chilli squid is fantastic!
