I came here with my partner a few months ago to celebrate our anniversary and the restaurant was perfectly suited to the occasion- lovely surroundings, delicious food and we really felt spoilt. I had a vegetarian tart and my partner had a steak, both were generous portions and well presented. The desserts were exceptional so make sure you save room for one!

So good we went there twice! Once for lunch (2/7/13) and once for dinner (3/7/13). Cannot fault the food or the service. Ken the chef is obviously passionate about cooking and turns out new flavour combinations and exciting twists on old favourites all presented with flair & panache. whilst Wendy at foh is engaging and strikes the perfect service balance. Only 28 covers so book to avoid disappoiuntent

This is a friendly, relaxed place to enjoy some of the finest and imaginative dishes you could want. The menu changes according to what's best and available, but chef seeks out wonderful meat, fish and other local produce to create some superb treats. And all at prices which are good value. Mackerel and crab salad, tender duck breast or venison, slow roast pork and flavoursome monkfish all cooked and presented with flair, and followed by delicious desserts or hand made ice creams. I can't make this long enough to describe it all, so you'll have to try it for yourselves!

Eaten here 5 times over the last few years (would have been more but i have moved away from Cornwall now) and every single time it has been filled with delicious food, caring, friendly service, classy decor and fine wine.
Had my last meal here two weeks ago upon visiting my family in Falmouth, and needless to say, it was perfect, 5 of us dined, all having different starters, as we did with our mains, all of which arrived at the same time as the others in our group, cooked to perfection.
The salads are amazing, with the chefs secret recipe balsamic reduction - devine.
steak cooked to perfection, succulent monkfish, duck, and the most tender piece of pork belly i have ever tasted.
We were also given complimentary cups of wild mushroom and truffle soup, which was amazing also.
The service is the best i've ever come across, friendly, funny and helpful with choosing what to eat.
A big thanks to Ken and Wendy for another top quality dining experience!
