Our Inspector's view

Set in a 16th-century, former corn mill in a postcard-pretty hamlet, this homely family-run bistro comes with a full complement of beamed and stone-floored character. Service is warm and informed, while the cooking is full of panache, with sharply defined flavours and confident combining of impeccably local and seasonal materials.

About the area

Discover Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.

In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
