Went for Sunday Lunch last week. The staff are really nice & friendly, food was good, only had a roast but it was cooked very well. Really chilled out cool place, check out the cosy little den bit that is built into the rock, beautiful. 9/10

I do like it here nestled on the common and as always have a room to ourselves so we can chat! Been a year since I was here and the food was even tastier. I had the homemade burger and it was very delicious. The pudding was divine - salted caramel with chocolate truffle. It was light, delicious and I... More

Nothing special but OK pub grub, fine for a quick work lunch with a colleague. Caesar salad dressing was rather too tart for my palate. Squid salad found favour with my colleague. No Michelin stars but OK -£30.15 with soft drinks and coffee.

We had a meal there and the standard was pretty average. Nice outside space. Great cave bar. Good for a drink take you dog or kids or with work colleagues. Sunday lunch maybe.

We visited the restaurant on a beautiful Monday night. The garden of The Mount Edgcumbe is really nice so we thought we would take advantage of the rare UK sun. They was a wait to order but we were happy to enjoy the sun and place our order a bit later. We shared a couple of starters between the 4... More

Dear Posypostle, Thank you for reviewing us on TripAdvisor. We are glad to hear that you enjoy our garden but it is concerning to hear that you will not return. Thank you for being understanding about the wait for food, on a hot day we can become immensely busy, of course we do our best to ensure that our customers... More
