Lovely restaurant right on the cove front - the best fish and chips I have ever had. Quick service and not expensive

The service was excellent at The Watch House and we thought the food was of excellent quality without being overpriced.

Doesn't look much from the outside but very tasteful and tasty inside!

Going for that sparse, rustic (New) England feel with the decor. Great views out over the harbour, even if you don't manage to get a window seat.

Food was really quite excellent. Came as a pleasant surprise as I was expecting good brasserie style food but it was actually right up there with higher end restaurants. Hold on to your chef guys!

Honestly one of the best burgers my wife and I have ever tasted and a perfectly cooked steak with seriously good triple-cooked chips. Great wine too! You can just tell chef is into the details. Everything cooked, seasoned and presented perfectly.

Service was seamless and friendly. The waitress had a great memory for the specials. Maybe they should have been listed on a board though. We had to listen to it being repeated to every customer that came in. It was quite a list...Dessert was a bit of let down but didn't spoil the meal at all.

If you're in St. Mawes and in need of some really great food then The Watch House is a must. Highly recommended!

Only had a drink here but the prices are good. The local beers are excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. The tables are cleared and cleaned quickly so no long waits to be seated.
