A fantastic end to a great holiday in Cornwall, the food was fresh and delicious and was paired with a nice bottle of Cab Sav. Congrats to the chief!

Hidden gem. My absolute favourite restaurant in Cornwall. Lamplighter offers phenomenal food and wine in a small, family-run restaurant at very reasonable prices. We've been going for years when visiting friends who live locally and have never been disappointed by Mairead's welcome and wonderful wine...More

We live five miles away from Lamplighter, and we reckon it's the best place in Cornwall. Chef Rob used to be the head chef on the QE2, and it shows. From the amuse-gueule to start, through the first course (you MUST have the squid), the...More
