A lovely small and intimate restaurant with a family owned feel and attentive service.

The food is excellent and authentically greek.

We will be definitely going back to this restaurant regularly in the future.

An excellent restaurant that we have frequented several times. The tapas selection is superb and there is a great choice of wines. With its relaxed atmosphere and location you might be mistaken by thinking that you are on the Med.

A fantastic place to experience delicious traditional Cypriot Greek cuisine. Stavros restaurant is the only greek restaurant in the county and does more than just provide you with delicious fresh Greek food as the decor and music really gives you a feel for this beautiful nation. The food is authentic and plentiful and we would highly recommend the mezze. The complimentary ouzo and brandy reflect the Greek hospitality you would receive if on holiday there and adds to the traditional feel of the restaurant. A great asset to Newquay. Thank you.

The restaurant was well placed in the far end of the town with a welcoming ambience and friendly greeting from the waitress. The menu was small but authentic and there were sufficient choices to tempt all but the most fussy. I had vegetarian moussaka which was just like the one I had in Greece this summer! it was fresh and tasty with a dressed side salad. The OH had stifado and was very pleased with his choice. The food was authentic, tasty and the service was friendly without being overbearing. It was a lovely find on a cold autumn evening and brought back happy memories of our Greek holiday. Definitely one to visit if you're in Newquay and fancy a change from the usual pub food fare.

Butchers Bistro, Newquay

This is one of the best fish restaurants I have ever eaten in at very reasonable prices. Totally unexpected, as from the outside, to be frank I would have walked by, but as soon as you walk in the warmth and friendliness of everyone there draws you in. The best part though is the quality of the food. Owner Chef Chris Butcher, who for over 30 years was a butcher and also a keen fisherman, knows how to prepare and cook food just the you would like to eat it. We were only in Newquay for two nights, and after the first night, immediatelt booked a table for the second night.

Just as an example, on the second night, Chris recognised me and invited me to look at a Sea Bass he personally caught that morning at 5.30am. An incredible fish that both my wife and myself ordered and it was incredible. My wife said, this is the best Sea Bass she has ever had!

We are from Los Angeles and eat all over the world in the finest restaurants. This week alone we will be eating in Christophers (Covent Garden London), STK London and Delauneys. At half the London prices, the food at Butchers Bistro is probably superior. Not as fancy, but you are not having to pay for the decor. I cant wait to visit Newquay again and eat at this restaurant.

I highly recommend lovers of good fish to eat here.

The Mermaid In ‘Pub on The Beach’, Alexandra Road, Newquay

A rare find these days and a far cry from the mass produced ‘theme pubs’. This quintessential British pub is located on Porth beach overlooking a photogenic Newquay paradise. In the summer, the beach is littered with families building sandcastles and surfers alike.
Perhaps not so pleasant to look at from the outside, with an unappealing stone frontage and a no nonsense, no frills, non exotic approach inside. The Mermaid is split into a bar facing the busy road and a larger lounge area backing onto the sandy beach, together with an outside seating area for when the sun decides to shine through. The bar has all the charms of a true ‘locals’ pub, with a convivial atmosphere, an open wood fire for those cold winter nights and customers enjoying a game of darts or pool. All in all this place has a relaxed, welcoming vibe with charming staff and canine friends enjoying crunchy treats, mainly of the Walkers crisp variety.
The selection of lagers and beers are pretty standard fare. For those partial to a ‘tap’ San Miguel or two, this Spanish delight is a rather sturdy, robust pint, guaranteed to make you rather tipsy after a tipple or two! It is quite a potent, pokey little number, so take care.
In terms of food, there is rather a large foldable menu of traditional dishes with additional, slightly more adventurous, specialities on the black board. Keen as I was to try all of the old favorites from years gone by, the extensive menu made it quite difficult to make a choice. A whole array of childhood tastes including chilli con carne or curry half and half (a real ‘South Waleon’ concept), scampi or fish and chips, ham, egg and chips, gammon with egg and/or pineapple, an assortment of burger choices, steak and ale pie and much more.
After much reminiscing and ruminating, my Grandpa decided on the crispy cod and chips, whilst the remainder of us settled on the steak and ale pie. The plate arrived with a large bowl containing succulent chunks of beef steak, laced in a lucious Doom beer gravy, topped with a puff pastry crust. The chips, clearly freshly cooked, rather than the flimsy finely cut frozen variety, lined the plate, acting as a perfect platform to soak up the juices.
Memories fully accommodated, bellies full, all plates cleared and hardly a trace of the contents left behind, we were all satisfied with our choices.
I’m afraid Newquay is rather lacking on the culinary front, but this place is definitely worth a visit if you are in the vicinity and fancy a trip down memory lane.

Lakeside, Newquay

Food for Flanagan
The Lakeside Restaurant, Trenance Road, Newquay
With descriptions of ‘first class’ and ‘best in Newquay’ on trip advisor, one cannot help but head towards this cafe/restaurant to experience the delights on offer. The Lakeside is, as it suggests, overlooking the lake with remote controlled boats, teams of ducks and a colony of gulls pruning themselves on the water banks. They are a delight to watch. I’m afraid in retrospect we would have been better served with a packed lunch amongst our feathery friends.

Unfortunately due to some bizarre set up, the extremely small bar area had tables taken over by individuals eating desserts and drinking coffee following their meals. If one was to speculate, one would presume this can only be to turn tables as speedily as possible. However, not so satisfactory for us or those that want to enjoy a drink before the meal. We were then shown our table almost an hour before we were due to sit down. Here we were greeted with quite an unusual concept in my eyes - previously iced water, already poured into four glasses, now full with condensation after the thawing process. When I asked if they belonged to the previous customers, I was addressed with quite a frosty response from the waitress, as though it was a completely imbecilic enquiry. I have eaten in many restaurants worldwide and I have never come across this before.

There was a standard menu of brasserie style food with a clear board complete with daily specials. We each opted for one of the sunday roasts - 3 chicken and 1 beef. I find it somewhat irritating that they assume the general public have a taste for Yorkshire pudding as it arrived unappetizingly limp on each plate, regardless of the meats ordered. I am afraid to say that the plate of food rather resembled some mediocre, microwavable meal, purchased from some below par supermarket. The whole plate was under-seasoned, luke warm, and served with an abundance of overcooked vegetables, including

cauliflower with singed edges. There must be a skill to that in itself! The chefs are clearly not following the standard rule of thumb. “Taste, taste, taste’, as they would say on the Great British Menu. Accompanying these articles, loosely described as vegetables, was the meat. Both the cows and the chickens appeared to have died in vain I’m sorry to say. The rather anaemic, lifeless chicken leg lay pitiful on the plates. A rather unusual cut of meat to accompany a traditional sunday roast. What happened to the quality parts of the bird? Next to this I was saddled with my dry, rather distressed, overcooked beef, each a deck of cards in thickness and coated with fat. If you want a work-out for your jaw I could highly recommend this plate, otherwise give it a wide berth.

Thank heavens at least to our Spanish counterparts for providing us with a half decent bottle of Rioja and to the French for their Stella Artois contributions. At least it meant the petrol hadn’t been completely wasted.

I would suggest that this place is big on location, but completely lacking on the food and hospitality front. I have seen tailors’ dummies with more expression! The front of house ‘lacklustre’ staff show a complete lack of charm and knowledge about the food on offer.

I would be utterly embarrassed to serve that standard of food if it were my establishment. Notwithstanding, this tasteless experience comes with a high price tag for the quality received.

Interestingly, I am just reading the Good Food Guide 2013, where they use a scoring system from 1-10 depending on the quality of food, ingredients, food and overall ambience. I would ‘guestimate’ this restaurant would lie somewhere way beyond -1, i.e. not capable of cooking, with more than a few inconsistencies. “Simple food” would be a good description by anyone’s standards - “simply awful!”.

The only true consistency I could appreciate was how consistently unappetizing each plate of food looked coming from the serving hatch. Well done to one and all if this was the desired outcome. I would guess and hope not.

Stavros is easily the best Greek restaurant I have ever been to. There is a truly authentic feel to the place that makes you really feel as though you have been transported to the Greek islands. The place has a real ambience and the staff are helpful and friendly.

I had the Kleftiko dish, which was simply exquisite. The lamb was full of flavour and so tender that it simply melted in my mouth. I expected the potatoes to be bland but I was pleasantly surprised to find them just as flavoursome and moist.

In short, Stavros is a lovely little place to eat out at and would highly recommend it to all.

Its a bit tucked away but once you venture in and discover the terrace that overlooks the bay i couldnt think of a better place to sit and spend an afternoon with friends. We had milkshakes that looked like something out of willy wonka and the chocolate factory and huge cream teas with home-made scones and unlike most places there was plenty of cream and jam. We had a really great time sitting in the sunshine on the big outdoor sofa that looks straight out over the harbour. spent several hours just hanging out and chatting and didnt feel pressured to leave once we had finished our food will definitely come back again

Newquay desperately needed somewhere like this with really good food and good value. Everyone was friendly and we got to sit outside in the sunshine looking at the sea. We live just outside Newquay and we're so happy there's finally somewhere to eat that we all like - will definitely be coming back regularly.

We were spoilt for choice with the menu and daily specials.
Freshly caught fish and local produce.
Both starters and main course were plentiful, well presented and very tasty.
My starter, was the size of a main course I would have in a local restaurant.
The waiter was very polite and friendly.
And the cost of the meal including drinks was very reasonable.
Would highly recommend to any fish / shell, lovers to visit this restaurant.

Lovely meal - we had the meze which was fab. I asked to be told which of the dishes contained fish so that I could avoid them as I dont like fish and the owner made this clear each time. I was pleasantly surprised to be given my own special dish instead of the fish course which was a very nice touch. Would have liked more Stifado as this portion was small compared to the others and it was completely delicious, although there was certainly enough food. A really lovely, memorable meal.

We have visited this Tapas bar twice in a week, firstly for the location, over looking the sea and been able to sit outside in the sunshine and eat delicious food. The food is fresh and healthy, no chips in sight, also very reasonably priced. In the past when we have visited Tapas bars the dishes have been so small that you need 6-8 to have a decent meal. I have a feta cheese salad at £4.00 and Moroccan chicken at £4.50 which was very substantial. My husband feasted on the complimentary pitta bread to soak up the lovely garlic olive oil on his king prawns at £5.50 and wonderful meditarrean potatoes at £4.00 plus of course his favourite Choirzo sausage, we came over full with a bill just over £30 including drinks. In this day and age where can you find a great setting with healthy food, that gives you an evening to remember. So I recommend that you visit for yourselves and just relax and chill over a fab meal. For Debbie and Phil offer great service and value for money.

We tried this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and we all enjoy Tapas. Its bigger inside than it looks and the decor is v nicely done with a mediterranean feel but not kitsch. We sampled 8 dishes from the tapas menu (although the main meals did sound tempting!). The food was all great, freshly prepared and v. generous portions allowing us all to try a bit of everything. The chilli king prawns were gorgeous with quite a kick! Soo good we ordered them twice! There was a good choice of wine to choose from and we had a reasonably priced Rioja. Phil who was waiting on was the consummate good waiter, welcoming, patient, helpful, accomodating, and efficient. Great Food, Great Views, Great People. We'll be back.

My wife and I were on a touring trip of Northern Island, Wales and South West England during September 2008 and stayed at a B & B at Porth for 3 nights just up the road from this restaurant.
We ate there on the first night and returned for the other 2 nights as we found that the food, hospitality and prices were excellent.
The decor is fairly basic but who cares when everything else is great. During our 3 visits we tried the Chicken Pesto Tagliatelle, Salmon and Pork Loin Fillets all very nice - hmmm I can almost remember the taste.

Not the most stylish restaurant, but there is something quite unpretentious about this little place with its purple ceiling! Food was nice, service friendly...Yes, I can recommend going there, but don't expect it to be slap bang in the middle of Newquay, cos it aint (£6 each way in a taxi) Still, if you don't want to sit in the middle of hen/stag parties, this is the place to go.

Welcoming, friendly, relaxed bistro, with a lovely simple and fresh menu. Any restaurant that makes the effort to put nut roast on the menu, is a winner in my book! Excellently priced and the Cornish Cream dessert is too die for!! It should be put in a tub and sold next to the Ben and Jerrys. Cornwall in a glass!!Really lovely evening, recommend it.

We were tempted back for the evening meal by the varied menu and were not disappointed. The food was fantastic and catered for most diertry requirements (important for me, being a veggie!)

Me and my partner reqularly visit The Lodge, and generally are wholly satisfied. The food is usually excellent and wholesome, presented stylishly and cooked beautifully. Indeed, we often take visitors there for a meal.

However, there is the odd occasion (Sunday evenings, typically) where the food is quite a way off the usual standard.

Staff are polite and helpful, though those who are used to city-life may find them to be overly chilled out about things...... part of the appeal if you ask me.

The real magic of the Lodge, however, is its view.... perhaps the best on the Cornish Coast.

Really bright, fresh and clean, with a warm friendly atmosphere. Not cheap, but excellent quality food - very well cooked and presented. The lamb was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. Loads od pitta bread with everything. The olives as a side order were a delight. We paid just under £44 for two (two courses, drinks and coffee plus complimentary Metaxa after we had paid the bill). A delightful evening - we will certainly recommend 'Stavros' to our friends, and return ourselves.

I have been eating at the Bowgie for over 20 years now - I have simple tastes admittedly but the burgers really hit the spot and the portions are always ample. The Sunday Roast is always a delight and the backdrop is stunning, whatever the weather. I always find it a real taste of Cornwall eating a Sunday Roast on a stormy winter's afternoon, but on the other hand, in the Summer it's always lively without being too hectic. A great place to eat!

Food and atmosphere are ok but the restaurant offers poor value for families when they add a 10% service charge for parties of 8 or more. We had 9 in our party of which 5 where under 8 and 2 where under 3.
Understand for adults parties but really for such young children. Next time we have group we will avoid this restaurant.

Bodhi's is perfect! During our short stay in busy Newquay we escaped to Bodhi's two evenings in a row to relax and enjoy an amazing dinner. Bodhi's offers a stunning view across Fistral beach with a great sunset, a nice balcony to enjoy one or two drinks before you indulge in excellent food. There are a view tables outside or you take a seat inside in the small but lovely furnished restaurant. The staff was very friendly and even the relaxed music matched our taste! The menu is limited but well thought through. The fish of the day can be recommended in any case - I had it two days in a row! My boyfriend ordered the homemade burger one night, which was very good as well. The cook seems to love his job and the really high quality dishes are nicely presented! But good food takes some time to be cooked, served, enjoyed and paid for. Hence don't come here in a hurry, please! All in all Bodhi's is currently my favourite restaurant - and I've eaten in many very good restaurants around the world... Thank you!

Ambience good: a starlit pathway leads you into the restaurant. I liked the trompe-oeuil grapevines.The music looped during our meal -suggest a longer loop!
Food: I'm a sucker for spices, and the Pastouma - little spiced sausages - provided a tasty, quite fiery starter, before the Macaronia Tou Fournou, which was ok but a little dry, I felt. My wife however ordered the Arni Mo Spanaki. Wished I'd ordered that too; it was excellent.
Service: friendly and efficient.
Price: good - under £35 for a starter, two mains, a glass of wine and a bottle of spring water. I'll go again.

Came to Newquay for a weekend away, had not previously booked and it was a Saturday night, but asked inside for a table for 2 and although they were full at the time, they told us to go for a drink over the road and come back in 30minutes, and boy are we glad we did. A really charming atmoshpere and one of the best Steaks I have ever eaten! The service was polite and friendly and the Chefs were in view and seemed to be in constant high spirits. We ended up as the last table in the restaurant and they didn't mind one bit - even asking if we would like an after dinner aperatif (where most restaurants just stare at you as if to make you feel obliged to leave) I would recommend this restaurant to all lovers of good, honest food in a warm, friendly environment. Top Marks!

A nice cosy locals pub with a darts board and pool tables, and a boardgames table. The quiz night is always popular, and in the summer they put on evening barbecues. The food is pub grub and tasty enough, the service is above average, and the prices are below average. Families are welcome although there’s nowhere for little ones to play. Its off the back off a main road at the top of a housing estate so its relatively quiet and has a nice beer garden for summertime drinks. Overall, it offers a nice spot for an afternoon pint with the family.

A Meal With a View


Review of The Kitchen at Lusty Glaze beach near Newquay




If you live in London you would be forgiven for not going around Britain with a fork, there is already quite a lot of bars and restaurants to try out, here. But you would miss out big time. This week-end past , he & I loosened our belts a couple of notches and took the night train direction: Cornwall and the sea. I was seduced by the call, not that of the sirens but of the mobile phone company Orange which named the popular "The Kitchen" beach bar and restaurant at Lusty Glaze Beach near Newquay as one of Europe's top finest ten.




All booked for 19.00 with high expectations of a spectacular sunset, we started up on a 20 minutes walk from our Newquay hotel across greens and along the coastal path, down 133 steps beneath a cliff to a horse-shoe shape cove to get to the restaurant which is located right on the beach. I was almost blown over by the beauty of the location. A spectacular sunset was at our rendez-vous and with a pre-diner drink in hand, we sat down next to couple of chimeneas chatting away with the Lusty Glaze first aider and co as we had known one another for decades. This place is certainly very cool.


The restaurant was full but did not feel crammed. Inside most of the tables are near the window so one can take in the spectacular views while eating. The menu makes the most of local products: moules, crabs and it also features duck and steak. There is a wide range of prices to accommodate all budgets. You can shell out £2.95 for a salad or £15.45 for a steak.

For starters, he chose oven-baked Camembert in its box with caramelized red onion and garlic bread and I went for Cornish Crab on a garlic bruschetta with mixed leaves.
When in the South of France and 19, I went on crab-fishing expeditions in the dead of night. These involved a bucket, a fork, a torch and a lot of laughter. clambering on wet rocks, the idea was to flash the torch at any cancroid shapes to startle them and as they stopped dead, we impaled the marine crustaceans with the fork and quickly through them in the bucket. My friend Monique worked her magic immediately on return so the next day, lunch was a fresh and zingy crab concoction which I can still remember the taste of but have never experienced again until last Saturday.




At The Kitchen. they buy their crabs from a local fisherman, I did not asked he too went on night-expeditions but when I enquired about the crabs, the waitress smiled widely joined her 2 thumbs together, did the same with her indexes to show me how big the spider-crabs are. This is what I liked about the place, it is not pretentious, there is a laid back atmosphere, you can feel that everybody is working hard and working together in an unobtrusive manner, focused on one aim: to make the guests feel good.
For main course, we went with the recommendation one steak -well-done- and chips, one sea-bass on a bed of risotto with dried tomatoes.




His steak was slightly too cooked but he (who is a bit of a steak expert) thought that the meat was really good and the fact that he did not put his fork down for one minute, all the while his plate had something on it, says a lot. The sea-bass was perfectly cooked, personally I would have put it on a bed of "just" rice, in my opinion the risotto didn't add very much to it but still this was a good main course. The price per head would have been just under £20 + drinks which is really good value for money as the portions are no-nonsense, generous portions.

As well at The Kitchen bar and restaurant, the beach is home to The Adventure Centre which provides many exciting activities for visitors including surfing, coasteering, rock climbing, zip wire rides and jetski safaris.

Pleasant bistro right in the centre of town. It was nice to see locally produced wine and beer (bottle conditioned) on the menu so I enjoyed a 'Proper Job' whilst perusing the menu. Our starter of garlic mushrooms and bacon in a creamy suace was delicious. Unfortunately the daily special of whole sea bass was unavailable (due to the chef not catching one!) so I settled for a trio of fish fillets with vegetables and potatoes. The fish was nicely cooked and the vegetables were plain carrots and cauliflower which seemed a bit bland. The alternative accompaniment to this dish was crayfish salad which my wife ordered and really enjoyed. The overall price was pretty reasonable and the atmosphere was excellent for a Monday so I would recommend the Butcher's Bistro to anyone visiting Newquay and we would certainly pay it another visit.

Had a lovely meal and would definitely recommend it. Went with quite a large group, there was a bit of wait for the food but at least this means the food is freshly cooked. The service was good, and if it hadn't been dark I'm sure the views would have been great! Will be going again.

We went to this restaurant last week and we have been going there for the last three years. The food just keeps on getting better and better and we have never had a dish we have not liked. Each dish is presented to a high standard and is packed with flavour and always leaves you wnting more.
The staff are extremely welcoming and make you fell that they have known you all your lives.
Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten in.

Delicious authentic Greek food.

We had to wait 30 mins to get a table as the place was packed. Service was attentive and personal, almost to a point of being a bit over familiar! Not masses on the menu for vegetarians, and we were told the sharing meze was too heavily meat orientated to cater for us as 1 veggie and 1 meat eater. The vegetarian moussaka and lamb that we had for main course were both really good, although the portions were massive! Would defiantly visit again.

6 of us recently visited this restaurant. Two of us had the Meze at £21.50 per head, two had the Chicken Souvlaki and two had the Calamari, the service was excellent, the staff friendly and the food superb. There were very generous portions and the Meze is definately one to starve for beforehand. It rekindled my desire to go back to Greece on holiday again next year !
I would certainly go back for more.

We found this fab restaurant when walking around Newquay looking for lunch. It was by far the best decision we have made in a while. There was extensive choice of a Greek Cypriot cuisine and we were not disappointed but blown away by the taste. Even our 11 year old raved about the food and said "this is the best restaurant we have ever been to" . We would highly recommend it. Go there and eat and roll home.

...in fact if you're within 25 miles it's worth a special trip. My taxi driver, a chef himself for 15 years, recommended it. I wan't disappointed in any way. Despite turning up 1 minute before closing I never felt rushed or made to feel awkward - quite the opposite. Chris the chef and owner and I chatted over a drink for an hour after I'd finished eating! My starter of Fal River mussels was practically a full meal in itself and cooked beautifully. My main was Pollock and was caught by Chris earlier in the day. It was beautifully fresh, served piping hot and a hot plate and presented simply with a few vegetable and crab salad. I had a Cornish rattler cider and Nettle beer to wash it down - both expertly recommended by the staff who knew their way around the menu like the back of their hands. The setting was simple, as I like it, with no airs and graces and the whole experience was fantastic value -- I've told loads of people not to miss it since. You won't be disappointed. I've enjoyed fantastic Michelin starred cuisine before but there was something about Butchers that will definitely see me return. Thanks

In our view, it is the best ever Mexican restaurant and the range of dishes is excellent. In addition the atmosphere is fantastic; so good in fact that I was recently working in St Austell and I travelled all the way up to Newquay (sadly alone this time)just to have supper again at Senor Dicks!

This is the second time we've visited Butchers with our children (aged 9 and 3) and both times the scallops, rabbit, prawns and seafood chowder have been amazing. The food is absolutely full of flavour and beautifully fresh. It's so nice to have somewhere to go on our trips to Cornwall which couples local produce with a great atmosphere and lovely attentive service. We don't hesitate to recommend Butchers to friends in Nottinghamshire or to people we see when we visit. We will definitely be back!

Excellent place to eat in a loving setting all year round. Varied choices so took me ages to decide! 1st day I had Home cooked Lamb & Veg Pie with fresh veg and fries and husband had Steak & Kidney pie,Veg & fries, (no pudding that day otherwise we would have waddled out). We both had the Bowgie Sunday Roast, (we chose Lamb & Beef both excellent)and Apple crumble for Dessert with either Clotted Cream, Cornish Icecream or Custard Yum, yum. Plenty of other choices that were excellent too if you have room after the large main meals. Went twice on 3 night break (staying in Crantock) would have been more if we had discovered it sooner. We especially liked the different styled area's to eat in that all had a different feel. Amazed on reading write up that the Bowrie can cater for 400 and that we didn't need to book our Sunday Meal, as it feels very intimate and relaxing, and kept immulate everywhere. Hosts were excellent friendly and helpful and meals arrived quickly and piping hot, (rare these days).1/2 Pint of Cider was welcome whilst driver had a Shandy.:(
We will visit again.
Hosts were very informative on how the Bowrie Inn got its name and local history was welcome thank you.

The Bowgie is a real find!! We were lucky enough to stumble across this pub while on holidays from Australia! The view is just divine and after I managed to tear my boyfriend away from taking photo's, we were treated to an awesome meal that was both well priced and delicious!!

The beer and wine list was top quality and I was worried we would never leave!! Awesome location for a wedding or function!! (hint hint Dave!)

After lunch, we went for a walk around the headland which was just incredible!

Overall, I say it's a must do! The staff were great, the food was delicious and of course then there's the VIEW!!

Just go, you will love it!

We checked out the daily specials and found curries that would shame many an Indian restaurant they were so good, a scrumptious fish pie and geat hot but not too hot chile with jacket potatoes or rice. Excellent. And views in the foreground of the longboarders on Crantock beach and of Trevose Lighthouse in the background. Brilliant!

The home made sweet potato crisps I was given when I sat down were lovely, my main course excellent. The steak came with a salad that was worth eating and not just for decoration and the expresso was one of the best I have ever had. Thank you.

The Bowgie is simply delightful. After a long summer day on the sunny beach or after a walk in the crisp clean country, there are few better ways to wind down than with a delicious meal and a friendly atmosphere of this West Pentire - based free house. The serene ocean scenery is reflected in the 'ocean bar' which is a great place to grab a quick snack in front of one of the 8 plasma TV screens. Also the 'Pigsty bar' is blend of rustic simplicity and cornish culture, with wonderful ornaments and trinkets all around. I think it's very safe to say I shall go back there time and again!

Excellent variety of fresh fish and local meats to chose from. The service was excellent from start to finish and the food was wonderful. It was great to be able to see the Chef (Chris) at work whom also took the time to come to speak to you after your meal. For anyone looking for good local cooked fresh food Butchers Bistro is definitely the place to go. I will certainly be returning.

We came across the Butcher's Bistro on our first night in Newquay in November.
It is a quite time of year and we had the place to ourselves.
The menu looked interesting and we both ordered the seafood mariniere.
Apart from the tiger prawns, the chef said all the seafood was cuaght locally with the crabs coming from the morninmg catch at Newquay harbour.
The waitress was very friendly and the chef was happy to talk about their policy on local sourcing of as many ingerdients as possible.
The seafood dish was delicious and a generous helping. We soaked up the juices with home baked bread rolls. Absolutely fantastic and washed down with Cornish Ratler cider.
I would recommend a visit to the Butcher's Bistro in Newquay.

Recently in the company of four friends I had an evening meal here. The chef and bar staff were very welcoming and helpful. I had Pork, apricot and cider pie which was the best pie I have tasted in a long time. The vegetables were fresh and tasty and the trifle I had to follow was excellent. The rest of my party all enjoyed their meal and we would highly recommend this restaurant.

we had a fantastic meal at this restaurant, my husband had scallops and i had breaded camembert, they where lovely and a perfect start to a fantastic meal, we both decided to go for the chowder dont let the price put you off once you see this dish you will realise it is well worth the money, the staff where friendly and welcoming and even the chef came out to ask if everything was ok with our meal. a nice touch. we followed the chowder with dessert dont know how we managed to fit it all in, i had summer fruit pudding and my husband had crumble. the whole meal and service was fantastic will definately be eating there next time we visit cornwall.

The food was brilliant and the service was great. I had the steak which was perfectly cooked. The hand cooked chips and red onion marmalade were amazing. And the nice thing was that the chef would have cooked the steak more if I had wanted him to. Everyone who works there puts their passion into the food and service which defiantly comes across with the whole dining experience.

I ate at the Butchers Bistro with my partner. I had mussels in Cornish cream sauce to start. This has to be tried! Their tomato soup was good too. For main course I had rabbit which was plentiful, moist and tender, and my partner had steak. It was a filet, but was a thin cut of meat which was unexpected. Nonetheless it was tasty. The Banoffee pie really impressed my partner and I had the Cornish cheese board, which I would recommend. There were several wines on the list around the £10 mark and I was happily surprised when the ozzie blend went down so well (and no hangover the next day either!). I would recommend the restaurant for any meat lovers who are in Newquay - definitely the best place we ate in the town centre and reasonably priced too.

wasn't sure what to expect from our first visit but was pleasantly surprised. I had the St Breok chicken, which didn't match my expectations, it far exceeded them. My husband had the steak which I tried on our second visit. You would expect an experienced butcher to know a good cut of meat but not necessarily cook a good cut of meat. Chris and Mel run a very cosy little gem in Newquay and to visit the same restaurant twice in one weeks holiday is a very good indication of this.

I have got nothing but praise for the Butchers Bistro! I have a gluten/wheat intolerance and have to be very careful what I eat, but the owners were so acommodating to my needs. Plenty of choice on the menu for both starters and mains! All the food is delicious and VERY fresh! The chef even took my husband into the kitchen to show him the seabass he had just caught whilst fishing that morning. I had some for my meal and it was yummy! The chef cooks most things from scratch to order. We went twice during our weeks holiday and will definitely be going back again when we next visit Newquay. Thank you,

Superb location, 30 min walk from Fistral beach and right on the cliff edge, the views are stunning. The food is locally sourced and reasonably priced. My shark steak and crab salad was simple and cooked perfectly, my husband had Crab Linguine, it was delicately flavoured with lemongrass and really special . My only criticism would be that the accompanying vegetables, tho' freshly cooked and tasty were a bit boring- why put carrots with shark steak? We could only manage 1 pud between us, and the Eton Mess, with local strawberries was a delicious finish. Book ahead to get a table by the panoramic wall of windows, or better still, eat out on the deck. If you are dissapointed by what Newquay has become, and looking for somewhere a bit classier, then this should fit the bill. Enjoy.

The premises does not stand out from the surrounding shops and that is the only negative point about this restaurant. It has a small cosy atmosphere inside and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The food, however, is wonderful, I can't remember the last time I had a steak that tasted that good. A lot of effort has been made with the extensive menu, there were four in our party and all had different meals and all enjoyed them so much we made sure that we went back for our last night before coming home.
The chef can be seen cooking as his kitchen is part of the restaurant and after he has finished cooking he visits every table in turn to chat. We felt we were being treat like friends rather than customers. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

My boyfriend took me to this little tucked away place for dinner and as a four year resident of Newquay I was really pleased to find an absolute hidden gem. The most beautiful old traditional pub and thatch and outside on the grass a mother duck with six little ducklings under her wing was sitting unmolested by the usual seagulls under the big leafy trees outside. Inside the Smugglers we were greeted promptly and offered a choice of cosy tables that are in a beautiful dining area with great big open fire places and ranges, and I spent a while dawdling over my wine looking at the big old stone walls and beams of this fantastic building.
The service we got was really hands on and friendly, Simon the owner came and had a chat. We had local mussles which were cooked just right and came in a massive dish with a pile of fresh crusty bread and most importantly the correct place to put the shells and a bowl of warm water and lemon for getting clean afterwards.
The specials board had a few very tempting options but we settled on the fresh sole and we weren't dissapointed because it was a whopper and cooked again superbly. Complimented by bright green steamed broccolli that still had some crunch (and the vitamin content) and a well sized pile of crushed potatoes. (boyfriend fisherman and therefore very picky about his seafood, said it was the business.)
The food was fresh, well priced and cooked perfectly and the dining area and hospitality was spot on, what more is there to say. I would definitely recommend this pub to anyone local or visitor alike who needs a bit of a change from, sea front, seagulls and hordes of people. We will definitely be back !! Thanks Guys ;)

We arrived almost an hour early (got our times mixed up) to meet some friends who live locally and felt completely relaxed and looked after from the moment we arrived. We decided to sit on the decked area and enjoy the beautiful view with a bottle of the lovely house wine and a basket of nibbles while waiting for our friends to arrive. The view of the harbour was breathtaking in the early evening, the local fishermen were returning with the days catch and the famed Newquay seals following waiting for any fishy tid bits to be dropped over the side while the fishermen hauled their catch’s onto the harbour walls (truly idly). The waitress kindly introduced us to one of the fishermen when he walked across the beach with what we later discovered was the fish for that evenings menu. The menu was simple and the staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We started with huge bowls of moules mariner and crab claws in garlic and butter to share (despite being main course options, which were great fun if not a little messy to eat, but finger bowls and napkins were available in abundance) followed by Seared cod, whole plaice and an amazing bouillabaisse. The desserts were stunning and were a great finish to a fantastic evening. We will be visiting again and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Excellent menu choices, so much so that I had to return the 2nd night I was in Newquay just to try some more dishes. On my first visit I enjoyed the Crab Cakes and a medley of fish with a great apple crumble to follow. 2nd visit saw me polishing off some delicious local rabbit followed by the most amazing bowl of fish chowder, and then there was no room for a pudding! A good wine list to go with the food as well. This restaurant has to be a winner and I will definately be returning for more.

We chose the restaurant for the views and the simple menu - which far exceeded expectation, in fact the menu could be better presented, "poshed up" to do the food justice. An excess of mussles meant my partners starter was the same size as my main - we queried, but not as a negative, but the lovely head waiter made sure we were charged the starter price for both! Really liked the Assiete of Desserts too!

My partner and I had walked a fair distance around the cliffs and Crantock Beach. We always wait too long to eat and find we are ravenous and of course greedy.

We decided to eat at The Bowgie Inn. Sat in the new conservatory area we perused the menu and made our choice, we were going to choose the puddings later, they looked very tasty.

We waited a little, which I now always accept that the food will be piping hot and fresh but I am still a little dubious because this is not always the case. Our meals arrived and well worth waiting for. My partner was overjoyed at the piping hot steak and kidney pudding with fresh vegetables and the very large plate they arrived on and filled. Mine was a wonderful tasty lasagna and a large fresh salad and rustic bread.

Of course we could not put another morsel in our mouths when we had finished and we had to forgo the wonderful puddings.

The waiter was polite and informative. My only gripe was that when my lunch was served, I was informed that if a required any condiments or sauces, I had to get up from my seat and walk to the bar to retrieve these items. This is a bit of a trek when you are starving and your meal is getting cold.

We spent a few days in Newquay and came to the Lewinnick Lodge twice.

Brilliant service, great food and the best views over Fistral.

Although we ate here twice, the menu is plenty varied enough to have two different and equally enjoyable meals each time.

I'm hard to feed as I'm Coeliac, but the servers were friendly and helpful - it was no trouble to them to tell me exactly what I could choose from the menu, or tailor the dishes to suit me.

Recommended: the goat's cheese risotto, the Aberdeen Angus burger and the crab and chilli linguine.

You can't go wrong here!

Finally at long last Cubert gets a decent place to eat and enjoy a civilised drink and in very comfortbale surroundings. Since the demise of the Tree Tops Inn Cubert has had nowhere and now out of the blue Paul and his team have taken over and transformed a previously mediocre establishment into the kind of place that we would all like to spend an evening in. The food was home cooked/ home made and excellent, great value for money too, great staff,nice background music and an overall thoroughly enjoyable experience. We will be going back often.

We visited The Anvil because we read in our local paper about the re-opening, and more mportantly, the link with a pub which we have eaten at, and enjoyed on many occasions. We were not disappointed. An excellent meal, good surroundings, a full restaurant and everyone eating great food. Happy staff and customers. We are definitely going back.

the food does justice to an excellent setting!! Of course set in Newquay's harbour the stock menu item is from the sea, caught by the fishermen in the boats that you sit and gaze at whilst you enjoy a glass from the terrific wine list. The chef must have sackloads of compliments and the staff are relaxed but attentive. If fruits of the sea isn't your taste not to worry theier is plenty of choice,(Steak oh! I'm hungry again now!!)and the pricing is what yuo would expect in a restaurant with excellent wines, choice of food, staff, and of course the setting!! A must eat place for locals and holidayers, and the Lobster pools make choosing your meal even easier. 'I'll have that one'!!

We visited The Anvil earlier this week and it was amazing. New people have taken over and they have done wonders with the place, gone are all the dark stone walls and blacksmiths paraphernalia and in with white walls, soft cushions and curtains and fresh flowers. They have created a separate bar area to enjoy a drink way from the diners which is lovely.the food was excellent, my wife had crab thermidor which was very good indeed and I had local loin of Cornish Lamb which was absolutely delicious.The kids menu has no rubbish on it either and we had a tremndous bottle of wine with dinner and all for under £20 per head inc starters. If you went to the "old Anvil" youo really must go and now, the change is amazing. I wish them all the luck in the world. We will be going back for more..

The food is always of excellent quality, presented superbly and served by very friendly and courteous staff who make you feel very welcome. This pub also has a great atmosphere and feel about it with its oak beams and accessories.I recommend you to try it, you will not be disappointed!

Called in on the way back from Royal Cornwall Show. Had look it up on this site before and was surprised to see only 2 old reviews. Menu looked good and I am always attracted to places that serve fresh food. Food was good - we had the homemade burger and fish cake dishes. Waitress was excellent and atmousphere good. Also good range of Cornish beers but wines were a bit pricey with the cheapest full bottle of red at £13.50. Overall very pleasant and likely to visit again when in the area.

The kitchen was all open plan so that you could see all the chefs preparing the meals,which added a a nice touch, It was more than we would normally spend on a meal but we decided to treat our selfs and it was worth every penny, we are already making plans to go again. If you are looking for a lovely evening, good food, and a treat for your self i would recommend Fifteen cornwall every time.

All our main courses (3 fish and I had the skewered steak) were perfectly cooked and served at perfect pace even though the restaurant was full. We were in Newquay for 4 nights and this was the best meal. I can't think of a criticism apart from my aching knees (its a steep slope to the restaurant) -- but then I'm always complaining about my knees...

Booked up for the wife’s birthday for lunch I was chuffed that they decorated the table with balloons and such. Nice menu our group had soups and I had salt and pepper squid which is an import from Oz. They were crispy, tender and sharp wonderful.
Mixed bag for mains, well executed Caesar let down by overdressing but edible. Very tasty fish cakes, veggie tart a bit Spartan. Good wine choice and super pimms and lemonade. The girls seemed stretched at lunch and looked frazzled but when you have this view and the sun shining the lodge still manages to pack em in. We’ll go back.

I had brill (which was "brill") and my boyfriend had swordfish which was cooked to perfection. The views of Fistral Beach from the restaurant are amazing (and captivating).

Varied daily specials (mostly fresh local fish) and a la carte menu typically including gilt-head bream, sea bass, tuna, mackerel, lemon sole, monkfish, mussels (plus meat and vegetarian dishes as well). Friendly service, decent and reasonably-priced wine list. Fantastic views of the sea, Fistral Beach, Towan Head and scenery generally - it's on the Pentire headland. We are very jealous of the locals, who will get to go all the time in the summer! Would recommend booking ahead especially at weekends, but on the day was fine for us (April 07).

We were even more impressed because last orders were at 3.00 and this was at 2.45pm - nothing was too much trouble. We left the selection of tapas to the chef - we were really impressed and it was delicious. What a lovely afternoon, we will certainly visit again and have recommended it to all our friends.

I did feel however that the prices for starters, mains & desserts are a little over priced however the food was very nice. The wine collection could do with a few brands added to widen the choice. However on a whole 6 out of 10. Not a bad place by any strech of the immagination. Will be trying other restaurants in Newquay and will report back with my opinions.

Nick, Liz and their staff at Lusty Glaze Restaurant made our wedding day the most amazing day of our lives.
Stepping in with just 6 weeks to go we couldn't have asked for more.
Nick did an amazing BBQ including cooked to order steak and tuna. The selection of salads and accompanying dishes was delicious too.
Fresh fruit salad, clotted cream, local cheeses and kids ice creams topped off the meal.
From 2:30pm thru till midnight we were looked after by everyone like it was a family party.
We can't thank Nick and Liz enough for taking all the stress and strain from organising our event. Not to mention that the food was superb and every one of the 80+ guests commented.
Can't recommend highly enough.
Thanks to all at Lusty Glaze.

The food was very, very nice particularly the starters (I had the goat's cheese galette) and the desserts - Storm in a Coffee Cup was an architect's dream of a construction and we all enjoyed devouring the different ‘floors’. My only quibble was my chinese duck dish would have been sublime with a little more duck and a little less noodles, but otherwise I can't fault the place.

Unpreposessing from the outside, Lewinnick Lodge looks, from the distance, something like a small new-build hotel straight out of the Sevs, however on closer inspection its slate exterior is both stylish and modern. The interior bears this out with its effortless neutrals, feature colours and understated chunky oak Habitat furniture. With triple aspect windows,you are afforded stunning views of the atlantic as you walk through the bar to the restaurant, where nearly every table enjoys a view of its own. Scoring very high on the adult-AND-kid-friendly-ometer, we were promptly seated and impressed to note that our 18month olds' stylish wooden chair seat had already been fitted and his place setting yielded an impressive array of toddler friendly eating implements, cup of crayons and a colouring in sheet. Our adult needs were also well catered for with drinks swiftly ordered and arriving almost instantly. An extensive range of meals from tapas to the full monty meant the only thing that took ages was choosing what to eat! We plumped for the Sunday roast beef and a rump steak with fries. A request to heat up Alfie's homemade mush was no trouble at all and it came back almost immediately - note - with little people mealtimes can be inflexible, hunger is often instant and tantrums can ensue at the drop of a hat, so the speed with which his food was returned to us was truly much appreciated. The mains were certainly serviceable enough and our hunger was pleasantly satiated. Great value for money at £6.50, the roast was more than a mere mouthful, infact (unsually for my large appetite) I couldn't finish it. This wasn't wow-fantastic-food but it was a good honest-john meal. I have a feeling that if you order more interesting dishes, fish for example, you would find some real gems on this menu with cooking to match. Roast beef and rump steak are not dynamic choices, so competent, tasty and easy on the wallet was good enough for us. The sublime pleasure came with dessert, a River-cafe inspired recipe - Chocolate Nemesis cake. We both agreed that this was an unsurpassed chocolate number, the like of which we had never tasted before in any dining establishment. A velvet undercoat of some luscious toffee like sauce and fresh raspberries demanded immediate attention. Three teaspoons made short work of this pudding from heaven and as we paused for breath we marvelled at the view and felt smug about how great it is to live in Cornwall and have lunches such as these. £30 for 2.

My girlfriend and I went for a meal at The Lodge in late March, yet the poor weather was not a problem at this brilliant restaurant. The location for the building is rather secluded but must be very picturesque during the day, and in the summer the thought of having drinks and food outside overlooking the sea was something that made us want to return in high season. The restaurant has a separate bar area where drinks are very reasonably priced-there is a TV screen and large comfy sofas yet all within and a classy decor perfect for people of all ages. The choice on the restaurant menu was very good and all meals are reasonably priced, with rather large portions too! The table service was excellent, and the general ambience and feel of the place (even in mid-spring) was fantastic. I would very much recommend this restaurant as a place to eat or have a few quiet drinks.

I have paid several visits to The Lodge and can't fault it. The views from the windows are out of this world, the food is well cooked and good value for money with a great choice, service is friendly and efficient and the whole ambiance is a delight. My only small niggle is that smoking is allowed in part of the restaurant. Even if you are sitting in the no smoking section there have been times when smoke fumes have spoilt some of the pleasure from the taste of the food on my plate. Even if you don't want a meal this is a great place to come for a cup of coffee, afternoon tea or a drink at any time of the day or evening.

Truscotts fish & chips shop has been judged to be one of the top 5 shops in Devon and Cornwall according to the Seafish Authority's 2004 fish & chip shop competition. Andy Gray of Seafish wrote in a letter to Alan Thain saying that :- as you are aware, your business was initially one of the top 15 shops in your area in a judging process that was extremely competitive. Your shop has now been judged to be in the top 5 in Devon & Cornwall and a certificate of merit will be presented to you at a later stage.

Good restaurant with good atmosphere. The food was of a good quality, and reasonable priced. The novelty of mixing your own dressing for the bread (using herbs, oil and balsamic vinegar) was also a good one!!!

This is the first visit to Finn's after hearing a lot of good reports. The restaurant is in an ideal location next to the harbour, with lots of space to eat alfresco when the weather OK The menu is food, but not extensive, the wine list is short and all wine is organic. The food we had was fresh and the quality and presentation was suburb. We will visit again when the weather is warmer and we can take advantage of the outside area.
