We just spent a week in St Mawes and went to The Watch House several times. Food, wines and service were generally good - very nicely cooked. This restaurant is pleasant with a nice atmosphere. The fish and chips in the restaurant was excellent (though smaller portions for the price than equivalent restaurants here in the Midlands).
On our last visit the service was indifferent. My steak was the worst I've ever had - nicely cooked, but they really should change their supplier. A favourite pudding was roast figs with clotted cream - BUT, on our last visit, they said it would come with a mix of icecream and clotted cream. When it arrived, it was just icecream. Very disappointing, especially when the waitress rudely demanded "do you want it or not?" To think that the Co-op (less than 50 yards away) was still open and sells clotted cream - surely somebody could have popped out and got some?
An order of fish and chips from the take-away round the back (even smaller portions) was over-cooked and when the guy serving dropped a piece of fish, breaking it, he was still intending to serve it. We had to ask for it to be replaced (with a wait of about 10 minutes).
