We stopped here specifically for lunch, arriving late to miss the rush of people but it was still very busy. We managed to find a table outside. The staff were very helpful and friendly and were very apologetic how busy it was and there would be a wait for food. It was worth the wait, between the 4 of us... More

We came upon this nursery and cafe quite by chance while out driving in the area. We stopped for Sunday lunch and were so glad we did! There are some wonderful sounding dishes on the menu which made ordering very difficult. The setting is beautiful.We were very lucky to be there on a very sunny afternoon and the views of... More

This is our third visit over the years to the Duchy nursery - while staying at nearby Restormel cottages (also part of the Duchy - and absolutely amazing!) and we loved it every time. The walk up from the cottages is steep but delightful. We had lunch as a family and were all very pleased: large sandwiches with fresh side... More

Every time I come for a visit to the West Country from the United States, I ask my partner if we can please go to the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery & Café. We have visited about 5 or 6 times now and we have always thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. HRH Prince Charles, Duke of Cornwall, officially opened the Duchy Nursery &... More

We popped in here whilst on holiday in lostwithiel. There is a lovely gift shop which is worth a wander round although very expensive. The garden centre is stocked with lots of unusual plants and it was very interesting to have a wander round. We sat outside for some lunch which was fantastic, theres lovely views and we found the...

As the title says, we arrived in the middle of a power cut and all the catering staff had been sent home. I thought this a terrible shame as years in the trade have taught me there is always something useful to be done, even if its a deep clean of furniture or replenishing crusts etc, maybe there's a new...

Thank you very much for taking the trouble to write a review and I am sorry that you found your meals a little underwhelming. We work hard to create some wonderful dishes which are generally very well-received but we understand that we just can’t please everybody all of the time. We are introducing a new menu in September so perhaps... More

Arrived early for lunch, 1130, and the restaurant was already busy. Nice atmosphere, lovely waiting staff and a super meal. I had the venison burger and my wife had the soup, both were well presented tasty and reasonably priced. Definitely one of the best places for lunch in the area. Will be back again next year.

We visited the garden centre on a recent visit to Cornwall and after spending some time wandering around looking at all the lovely plants in the nursery, we had tea and cake in the café. There is a nice gift shop there as well – definitely worth a visit!
