I've been here 4 times now, and I can safely say it is my favourite restaurant in the entire St Austell/Truro Area, I've sampled the Lamb Ribs, Main/Starter Burger (Equally superb), Cornish Crab Salad, Cheese Souffles, Eton Mess, Pavlova amongst others, and every time it has been perfectly cooked and presented. Combine this with a stunning balcony, and a spacious and airy interior restaurant, and rather lovely staff, it's certainly a top recommendation! Only drawback is the slightly inconvenient opening times, I want it to be open 24/7!!!

My friend took me to this resturant which I had seen sign posted on the main road 391 from St. Aurtell to Truro, Cornwall. There is a brightly lit area that serves hot tasty meals. There were many people there enjoying their meals. There is plenty of parking as the shop on the same area caters to the farming industry and Equestrian "gear" I found something for my grandsons' birthday. I'll go there again and take family as well.

Visited Griggs on a lunch time (2nd visit). Lovely home cooked food using local produce....Well done for that. Had to wait a while for the meal but at least you know the food is being cooked fresh. My only small complaint.... too noisy. Wooden floor and high ceilings makes the sound of lots of chatting and coffee machines carry around the room. Not sure how this can be solved, but very off putting, for me anyway. Difficult to hear the person opposite you talking. Service very friendly. Would return.

A wide variety of freshly cooked & locally sourced Cornish fayre. Off the beated track but well worth discovering for yourself.

Very popular with locals and those 'in the know'. Book ahead if your planning to celebrate a special occasion such as Mothers day as this place is a guaranteed winner and can be fully booked.

The staff are great, the environment is marvelous and the food is delicious. I have never had a bad meal there.
