“Great Value At Sails Cafe”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were all feeling seriously hungry after a nice long walk around Bocastle and after comparing prices settled for an inexpensive meal at Sails. We ordered Chilli burger, chicken with pasta, beans on toast and a normal burger all served with homemade chips. The service and customer care was faultless as was the food anyone visiting Boscastle must give this a try.

“A great place to stop in for a bite!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

While visiting Boscastle, my family and I were looking for a place where we could get an easy, tasty, and inexpensive bite to eat. We had quite varying requirements for our food, but Sails Cafe fit the bill! Between us, we ordered pasties, burgers, sausage rolls, chips, and mushrooms on toast. The servings were generous, and the food delicious. The proprietor was helpful and friendly, and made our stop a very pleasant one! I would recommend this cafe for anybody who is passing through beautiful Boscastle.

“Overall a Good Experience”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

First impressions weren't great - the lad at the till yelled 'customers!' when we entered, without acknowledging us and saying hello.
Having said that, the rest of our experience of Sails was a good one. Service with a smile from the man who did serve us, really nice chips (certainly nothing like the cheap and nasty ones you often get in cafes) and a decent pot of tea.

Ah yes, we have had a chat with our pot washer, he was trying to help, even if he did make us all jump calling for someone to help you. We are glad you enjoyed the rest of your time here at Sails, thank you for leaving such great feedback.

“Great choice, great food - something for everyone!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We've visited Boscastle a couple of times but not tried Sails, we were not disappointed. Whatever you're looking for, whether it be a sandwich, fried breakfast, main meals, cakes, Sails will provide at great value prices. Chips are highly recommended!
