Quick summary: a delightful spot for breakfast, lunch, cream teas, a nice glass of wine. Moderate prices. Friendly, helpful staff. Indoors or outdoor terrace overlooks countryside. We stopped by en route to the Cornwall coast. It was a gray day, but rather busy, so we...More

Great quality food and drink. The sweet potato soup was delicious and the crab Sandwich was very tasty. Also had some fries which were like raw strings. Not very good. Do not eat the fries they are not good value. Lovely place to visit and...More

Thank you so much for the review and that you enjoyed your lunch! We have made some changes to our fries as they were inconsistent and now far superior! I hope you enjoy them on your next visit.

Stayed a t Restormel estate. Fantastic cottage, beautiful pool, wonderful people, visit and enjoy. 20 minute uphill walk to nursery, well worth it, all downhill on way back . Buy some plants if you have room in your boot!

What an amazing cafe! Beats a lot of restaurants I have to say. We had venison burger, though the menu catered for all tastes with plenty of veggie options. Table service, which is excellent. You don’t have to wait long either. Indoors and a outdoor...More

We visited specifically to buy an orange, scented azalea. Mission Accomplished! Loads of unusual plants to see and real ‘plants men/women’ who really know their subject whose brains you can pick for information. The car park was rather busy when we went, but we managed...More

A very disappointing lunch. Disgustingly tasteless veggie burger. Veggie flan not too bad, with highly seasoned uninteresting accompaniments. All salad too dressed with oils. We all had perfect piled up food. Beautiful to look at but tasteless and expensive. Wish I had cake. Won’t visit...More
