“What a Gem!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Booked this restaurant at the last minute for 4 adults - what a find! Very tastefully decorated - I understand that it has been refurbished recently. Service from the staff was very friendly and the meals arrived promptly, although not too promptly as if to make you think the food had been popped into a microwave. All four of us had something different and we all agreed that the food quality was outstanding. The presentation was excellent and the food piping hot. Also excellent value for money! Can't speak highly enough of it.

If there was one negative it would be to update the style of the 'normal' menu, as it really didn't reflect the food that was on offer. The specials menu however did.

Will definitely without a doubt return to this gorgeous restaurant.

“Let down by the staff”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The service we received here was rather poor overall, the staff inside the restaurant were very stand offish when we asked to sit outside and they were bordering on rude when a few of our party needed to go back in to use the facilities.

The person taking our order at the outside window did not know what they had in stock and couldn't even tell us the fish of the day without shouting at the kitchen staff, with fish and chips being one of their main meals, this was a little strange.

The food itself was prompt and can not be faulted. It turned out the fish of the day was Pollock, and it was well cooked and clearly fresh. The waitress who cleared our table was the only friendly and cheerful member of staff we met and is the only reason this review is not 'poor'.

“Summers Day - Sat Outside”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We visit Boscastle on a fairly regualr basis, we have eaten insode at this restaurant before and found the food to be good value. Today we stopped for lunch, we sat in the garden and enjoyed the weather. My omlette was freshly cooked with a nice salad and plenty of chips, my wife ordered a panini and a a side order of chips -so many that I had to help her out :-)
The service was pleasant and the price was within what we have paid in Cornwall this time of year.
Value for money? Yes

“Excellent meal and service”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We ate in this restaurant on the first night of our week in Cornwall and returned on our last night. The waitresses obviously enjoyed their job and were knowledgeable about their menu. Everything we ordered (three courses both times) was superb and cooked expertly. Really good value for money. We would definitely return and recommend it highly.
