We were told about this place by a friend who runs a speed boat in Padstow. We were so pleased he did. We had the Crib Box breakfasts. Egg, bacon, sausage, beans, hash browns, fried bread to die for and a good cup of tea....More

Very good breakfast, served from 8:00. Ideal if taking the dogs for an early walk, which we were. Good quality food, freshly prepared, by a friendly chap (Ben?). Bacon very good. Thanks.

We took our dog in today. They were fine with that, but it was not too busy at the time - only 2 other tables occupied
