“An unexpected gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Have now been twice to this tucked away restaurant on the Famouth Gweek road now much easier to find thanks to new signeage. Both times the welcome from owners and staff has been warm and the food is as good as any that you can get in Cornwall - at least I have not tasted better and the presentation is first class. Everyone tries hard to make your visit memorable and succeed. If you have not been yet do so asap you will not be disappointed I assure you.
As you may have guessed I am a big fan

Love walking the dog through the woods and stopping for coffee or even a bacon Brie panini, lush. Food is nothing but excellent
