“Best restaurant in Polperro”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Be sure to visit this excellent restaurant, owned and run by Karen and Harry Whybrow. You will be assured of a warm welcome from Harry who does a first rate job front of house. Karen's food is all home made and absolutely delicious. "Second to none". Everything Karen uses is locally sourced and is perfectly presented. We stay in Polperro several times a year, and The Kitchen is the only place we frequent for our evening meal. Be sure to support this lovely hard working couple. You will not be disappointed.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Been a Polperro regular visitor for the past 20+years and somehow this was a restaurant that we had passed but never actually had a meal in, called in during a stroll around the village one evening and booked for a table for two. The previous comments about the food and service are so right cannot think of anything else to add, all round excellence, delightful atmosphere we have decided that we need to go back and sample the other dishes available.
This has got to be one of the best small restaurants in Cornwall, booking essential due to its popularity.

“Perfect evening”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Living locally we know almost all of the restaurants and their particular specialities but this one was a lovely surprise, the atmosphere was cosy, friendly and welcoming but the best was to come! The 'home prepared' food was truly excellent, ingredients had been selected with great care and cooked to perfection. Made a super evening and we will certainly book again.

“Wow”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

What a great family run restaurant. I suffer with a food allergy. I contacted them and they replied very quickly. They advised me that whatever I would like they can arrange for me as the food is prepared fresh. The value was excellent. And the food was second to none
