We wanted to do a self made gastronomic tour of England with friends and chose Cornwall as one locale to try. We discovered several excellent kitchens, the one at this restaurant being far and away the finest. Despite an unassuming and slightly funky interior, from the first morsel to the last, the food was superb. The fried oyster starter was... More

The perfect balance, fantastic food and the personal touch. No6 is without a doubt our personal favourite and has been for many years, but there is always a moment of anticipation when introducing friends to a restaurant having built up the reputation. Goodness, why were we concerned? From the moment we stepped through the door the service was spot on,... More

Such a special place - they really do care about their customers and really want to make their dining experience special! Exquisite food, starting off with beautiful bread and range of toppings - so wonderful whilst you wait for what is yet to come! The staff are superb and strike a perfect balance between friendliness and professionalism. Yes expensive, but... More

Another lunch, another amazing special memorable meal at No 6! This is a restaurant which deserves every accolade given to it. The whole experience is just so enjoyable every time. We chose the set menu today with gluten free requirements.. no problem. Delicious bread, with scrummy spreads, followed by the smoked haddock with Jerusalem artichoke and caviar chantilly left us...

Wow, wow and wow. When I can stop saying wow then I would add this is a sheer taste sensation and delight. From the moment you place your reservation they start to care and made my special birthday lunch very memorable indeed. The food was fantastic and each course was pure joy to eat. Don't miss the coffee and chocolate... More
