A really lovely place to visit. So tempting to buy all those plants but we only managed coffee and cake!

The food was delicious. I had sardines and mum had seafood linguini. Portions sizes were good. Lovely decor. Staff were friendly. There did seem to be a delay on the food but they were quite busy so it wasn't too bad. Would visit again.

It was a filthy day so they were cramped for space as no outside seating could be used. However, it was frustratingly wait for over 10 minutes to be seated when there were empty but unlearned tables. Once I did get seated, the menu looked...More

Just as you'd expect from a venue bearing the moniker 'Duchy of Cornwall,' a quick read of the menu supported the web-site claim of "....using locally-produced ingredients and all that is best in Cornish produce." Our first time visit here, despite living quite close...but then...More
