We have been staying in Boscastle for the past few days, and made a journey out to the farm shop to pick up some condiments and have a bite to eat. The farm shop itself is quite small, and I would have liked to see some more produce - however, the cafe itself was very charming, and the quiche of the day and homemade coleslaw was delicious. My girlfriend had the pate which also got the thumbs up.

The views through the window of the coastal path are outstanding, highly recommended.

We had been recommended the Boscastle Farm Shop & Café by friends so went along on Sunday afternoon. Well, what a hidden gem it was!! The café overlooks a stunning view of the north cornwall coast & the coastal path is easily accessed from the café.
We had a slice (huge!!) of delicious chocolate fudge cake & a pot of tea & sat admiring the view. There were other tasty looking cakes, biscuits etc to tempt you & the menu included light lunches of quiches, ploughmans, burgers etc all made freshly using local produce. The pasties looked super scrumptious!!
The café has several tables both indoors & outside, plus a couple of very comfy sofas facing a log burner which I would imagine is very welcome in the colder ,months. There are also computers & free WiFi.
Outside there are some farm animals & a very sturdy wooden climbing play area for children. There are toilets which were clean & well presented.
There was a nice choice of local produce in the farm shop & ample parking, although it could easily fill up as this place becomes more well known.
This café & farm shop is well worth a visit & will definitely be a hit with both locals & tourists. The staff are very friendly & helpful.

Thought we'd try the new Boscastle Farm Shop. It was a lovely sunny bank holiday Monday. The layout of the Farm Shop and Cafeteria is really good and the views over the sea are breathtaking. However the service was really poor. You sit down and they come and take your order. We waited a long time, after prompting before our order was taken. Then we waited for ages before our drinks arrived - we ordered strawberry milkshakes but they tasted more like the chocolate ones. When our main courses finally arrived they were ok but nothing special and the white wine I ordered was not cold enough. The apologetic waiting staff seemed unable to cope and didn't even seem to know which table had ordered the food.
The place has great potential but needs to improve quickly on the food & beverage side and the service

We are a newly opened farmshop in the process of increasing our stock .
Due to our firm committment to supporting local small food producers, on such a busy weekend
the demand for our stock was far greater than we had anticipated. We are continually monitering the situation. We have now sourced a lot more stock for our shop and are confident that our now fully stocked shop will continue to improve.

We would like to thank you for your time in placing your review

A nice location for a cafe. Not sure how you get to this place as we came across it while walking.

Lots of people who know the owner use this place it seems. We felt on the edge of intimidated as the conversation was across the room rather than at the table.

My husband's cheddar sandwich was just 'ok'. It was served on a hot plate which made the meal poor. The crisps were also missing. We were scared of a glare from the friends for complaining so left to continue our walk.
