We ate here recently as a family group and were very impressed. Our food - diverse starters, mains and desserts/cheese - were uniformly excellent and the wine list is extremely sensibly priced. We had read about poor service in certain previous reviews but we could have no complaints whatsoever. Ok, the place was only half full but one can only speak as one finds.
If they keep this standard up Asquiths deserves to succeed so that, hopefully, we can return.

First off I am a chef myself from a very high two rosette pub and the food that was served here was amazing. Everything was cooked perfectly, the skill and technique was spot on. Shame we were the only two there and don't understand why! Definitely would recommend.

We ate here on 15 February & would advise booking as we only just got a table at the last minute.
The food was excellent, extremely well presented & delicious.
However the level of service for such a small establishment wasn't great. They seemed to be more interested in keeping one particular table happy as they obviously knew them, unfortunately the lady on this table insisted on talking about delightful topics such as haemorrhoids while we were eating! We would have complained only after we had ordered coffee no one came back to check on us & it took 15 mins to get someone's attention for the bill. You lost out on a tip as a result. All your customers should receive the same level of attention!

Had a very good meal here, whilst staying in Lostwithiel. Menu was inventive, with some items I had never come across/had before. All cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. True fine dining. Very good wine list. Staff friendly and attentive, welcoming atmosphere. Had a lovely evening, would love to go back and definitely recommend to anyone looking for a decent meal out/bit of a treat in Lostwithiel.

I've had two really great meals at Asquiths. The food really is a bit special, creative and innovative, but still served without pretence and (will be an issue for some I'm sure) in decent size portions. The waiting staff are charming and attentive and really do know their food and are happy to talk about it and offer advice and suggestions. The menu changes weekly at least and is quite limited- usually 3 to 6 choices for each course, but this is understandable is the restaurant is quite small (maybe only 35 covers). On both visits I have eaten with a vegetarian and they have been astounded by how good the vegetarian option is. If you like fine food that won't break the bank pay Asquiths a visit, you will not be disappointed.
