Reviewed November 3, 2013

this restaurant is nicely hidden away from the main town of st austell; there is ample parking out the front of this parade of shops. The restaurant itself is a fair size, tables arent too close together and its clean and tidy - my only comment would be with regard to the front door, which every time its opened seems to let a gale force wind whip through - a sheltered entrance area would improve this.

I have eaten here on a handful of occasions now and each time the staff have been welcoming, polite and attentive enough. the food is all cooked fresh to order, the portions are a good size and the price isnt too bad, but more importantly the dishes are always of a good quality.

Its not a 5* restaurant but I would have no hesitation in recommending it as somewhere to eat.

Ordered 4 meals for a take away one Saturday evening and ate with some friends at home. The food was disgusting, total bland mush, they should be ashamed selling this type of sub standard food. I am pleased i did not pay more and have a sit in meal. best avoid this place if you can and head to Charlestown down the road.

Went in for an early meal after a coastal walk. liked the menu, especially the "special" meal, but they refused to serve me that because I WAS ON MY OWN! Noweher on the menu in the window did it state that a single person couldn't order the specials.
I asked to see the manager about this discrimination but he "wasn't available" (surprise surprise). The waitress was rude and offensive. The meal I did order was poor, and only lukewarm. Their attitude STINKS and I would advise people to AVOID THIS PLACE>
