We had a wonderful lunch here of pasty and salad and a crab cocktail. Both very tasty and generous portions.

It takes a while to reach the cafe but it is well worth the journey. It feels like a remote cornish Farm and you are a special guest of the farmer and his family. We at in the beautiful courtyard with seats in and out of the sun surrounded by lovely flowers.

Naturally we had to have ice cream and chose banana split and an exotic fruit sundae both of which looked stunning and drew admiring glances from other diners

As we only had ice cream, I cannot comment on the quality of the food served at Roskilly although people on the table opposite had tea & cake which I must admit look delicious. The Ice cream was Fab and was as good if not better than our local Marshfield variety. Three varieties were ordered, coffee, caramel crunch & ginger, all as good as each other. Unfortunately the scoops served in a tub looked smaller than that served in a cone. All in all a nice place to visit.

We have visited here for many years, and it never looses its charm.
This year we discovered their marmalade and toast and I must admit we were a bit addicted, to the extent the waitress suggested we could buy a catering pack for our return home tomorrow ....the food and ice cream is delightful quality and the staff are relaxed and friendly. We can't wait to return next year. Thank you x

Have visited this place for last five years and always look forward to it.
I particularly look forward to their fantastic salads and we usually eat there almost every day during our holiday as we stay nearby.
This year they have a new menu and it's not a patch on their old one-no salad bar! We're still gutted that they stopped their BBQs a couple of years back. Not sure why because it was hugely popular.
It has always been a job to get a table there but worth the wait. This year we could have sat anywhere at any time-as it's on our way back from the village to our cottage we walk through daily.
Risk illy staff and local pub staff also said that the food wasn't as good since the menu changed and I think this was also evident from the lack of customers. We couldn't find anything we wanted on the menu.
In addition, it was quite dirty. The tables are quite old and tatty and very sticky so the wasps were everywhere. We thought about trying the inside area but it was airless and like a furnace, even though it wasn't a hot day.
Very disappointed altogether-this has been our favourite place to eat and drink for years.

Have always visited, for the past 8 years. Called this evening, for something to eat but unfortunately their were far too many wasps for us to have enjoyed a meal. I realise they are limited with what they can do but we have not experienced this problem anywhere else on the Lizard, cornwall. Shame really- we won't go back again!
