"OUR MENU FOCUSES ON THE FINEST CORNISH PRODUCE"
TUESDAY - SATURDAY
Our evening menu is available from Tuesday to Saturday with bookings highly advisable.
Our menu is small but focuses on the amazing fish available on Cornish shores combined with the stunning meat and game Cornwall also has to offer.
We will always try our best to accommodate any dietary allergies or requirements but ask for notification of any requirements at the time of making a reservation.
We do not have a separate children's menu, however, we will try to adapt our dishes to suit.
We order very little and often from our suppliers which means the food we serve is as fresh as possible. This also means that our menu's change regularly. Our sample menu attached gives an idea of the food we serve.
Click on "SAMPLE MENU" on the top bar for our current sample menu...
Unfortunately due to a high number of "no shows" we have had to alter our booking procedure. We will now require a valid debit/credit card to secure a reservation.
We fully understand that plans change and try to be as flexible as possible, therefore we ask that any reservations be changed/cancelled by 3pm on the day you are due to be dining with us.
After 3pm, or in the event of a no show, a £15 per person charge will be made. We hope you understand our reasoning behind this decision.
Please use the booking system below to check availability and make a reservation.
OUR little BISTRO
Being a family run business we put our heart and soul into everything we do. From sourcing our fresh meat and fish directly with producers to meeting the owners of the local vineyard to ensure we promote their wines in the manner that they are happy with. We only run one sitting per evening therefore the table is yours for the evening.
We are super proud that in August 2018 we were awarded 1 AA Rosette for culinary excellence. We have also received back to back Gold in the 2017 & 2018 Taste of the West Awards, reaching the final in 2017. In 2019 we featured in the Trenchermen's Guide for the best South West Food & Drink establishments, reaching the 2020 Final Awards for Best Front of House Team. We have also featured in the Hardens Guide for top UK restaurants and have received 3 consecutive Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence awards.
Unfortunately the Bistro is on the smaller side therefore we are not able to allow dogs inside, however, during warmer months there are three tables by the waterwheel which are covered and heated. Please email us if you would like to reserve a table with your four legged friend and we will book an outside table for you.
enjoy a drink in the cornish sunshine...
When you book a table at the Bistro we want you to make an evening of it...join us early, order your favourite tipple and sit by the creek and relax, we'll even come and let you know when your table is ready.
If you'd prefer an al fresco end to your evening then you are more than welcome to have a coffee or digestif by the water wheel on our heated terrace and enjoy a range of hand rolled cuban cigars straight from our humidor.
Whatever the weather we will always have the blankets at the ready!
