“Fantastic food, highchairs awful”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Went here with a friend and our two little ones. What incredible food! Beautiful and freshly cooked. The chips were amazing!!! Plenty of space for pushchairs out of the way too which can be a pain. Only problem was the highchairs. They are the wooden ones you find in many restaurants, which would be fine but they are far too low for the tables and they don't come with trays so its virtually impossible to feed your child properly and, consequently, food ends up all over the floor. Obviously not chosen by someone with children! Other than that, AMAZING!!

“Griggs Lower Sticker St. Austell Cornwall”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Griggs have been agricultural suppliers for years in this area of Cornwall. They recently added a restaurant housed in a brand new modern building. You'd want to take the table and chairs home - they are so beautiful. As others reviewers have said - it was packed (Easter Monday) but we were quickly seated and drinks orders taken. Between us we had the beer battered cod and chips (the chips were deliciously fluffy inside), Caesar salad, nachos with all the accompaniments, green thai curry and cheese burger . Friendly service and we didn't mind (too much) the 20 minute wait for what proved to be mouth watering food. Really excellent value for money

“Fantastic lunch.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I wasn't expecting much to be fair - BUT i was amazed, it was packed & for a good reason - it good food at good prices with excellent service.
I had the burger - wow what a burger and I will have it again next time we go, my fella had the caesar salad a nice big bowl!! we had a couple of drinks and the bill was just over £20.
A wonderful busy atmosphere & the staff seemed so calm but was working so hard - Well done the Griggs Team, can't wait to return.....!!!
