We called in at the Duchy garden centre for lunch and found a seat outside ,there wasn't a queue so our expectations of being served in a reasonable amount of time were to be honest high. HOW WRONG WERE WE ! After ordering ang receiving our drinks quite quickly the rest of our order took over an hour to get... More

We walked from Lostwithiel as an excuse for lunch as it's always lovely here. A good range of food (although they can run short on busy days) and great coffee. Oh and there are plants for sale too!!

A beautiful setting for lunch. Delicious, freshly prepared food and great service. Good value menu with lots of choice from sandwiches to salads and hot main courses. Delicious range of cakes and sweet treats! Lovely to browse in the shop and nursery afterwards.

Having visited the cafe for just a quick drink whilst on a walk at the weekend, my partner and I (accompanied by two Jack Russells) returned for lunch. It was a little too cool to eat outside and, having enquired if there was an indoor dining area where we could take the dogs, we were directed to the orangery /... More

Beautiful setting with countryside views and lots of outdoor seating amid the nursery. As it was chilly when we arrived for lunch at ten to twelve we sat inside. It was very crowded and noisy and we had to clear our own table of several large boxes of glasses! After waiting ages a waitress arrived for our order. We waited... More

Lovely setting and views from the cafe especially if the weather is good and you can sit outdoors. Food was good and beautifully presented, the cakes looked fantastic (we didn't try them). The staff are very helpful and know the menu well. I had the Crab crostini which was nice, but only a small amount of crab (Which the waitress... More

We only visit a few times of year while in Cornwall. On previous visits the food has been excellent and worth returning for. Previously it had been hard to choose what to eat from the menu with so many nice choices. I am afraid this was not the case today. We had lamb bagettes with salad, not a good choice.... More

I took a friend to the cafe on Tuesday 4th for her birthday. The food was lovely, the setting was lovely, the service was dreadful. Our waitress was completely uninterested, it took an hour to order and receive baguettes, having already waited 40 minutes for a table (not a complaint, just a busy time). We then ordered a pot of...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review, though I am sorry that it isn't more positive. We pride ourselves on customer service and so it is disappointing to read your comments.
