Driftwood is right on the coast in Roseland, a beautiful part of southern Cornwall. The restaurant has a star and this is justified from my experience. The menu has many declared ingredients for each dish and there is an inventive mind behind the combinations. The...More

We stayed at the Driftwood for our last night in Cornwall and planned ahead for the 1st class dinner. It was unbelievable, I took pics and service was top notch. We both had the fillet of ruby red beef. Truly a gourmet event, just wonderful!

My husband and I loved this restaurant! Great staff from the moment we walked in, amazing food and wine. The taster menu looked amazing but we opted for the a-la-carte. All three courses (£65pp) were gorgeous and portions huge - I don't think I have...More

If you are in this area this restaurant is a must; the rustic ideliac location combined with good food makes for a great meal out. It's a bit of challenge to find as it is in coastal village life. The coastal view as is in...More

We had a super nice meal here. Fantastic service, particularly from a very professional and knowledgeable chap fresh from a restaurant on Skye. It is beautifully timed, themed and presented food - we had the longer of the two tasting menus and every dish was...More

Thank you, praise indeed, although I am not sure our dining room ceiling quite matches the Ritz! I hope we will see you again.

Visited here for a special birthday treat. We live locally and had heard lots of good things about the Driftwood. What an amazing experience it was. Food, service and setting was all faultless. We chose the 3 course menu, food was delicious and so beautifully...More

We could go on, but let's leave that to the Guide Books. Come and experience Driftwood's Michelin Starred Restaurant for yourself. There are no extravagant promises, only a guarantee of the freshest, finest food, served with stunning views across the sea. When the weather is warm we light hurricane lamps on the deck to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and after dinner coffee.
