Awarded 2 AA Rosettes for its excellent cuisine, Asquiths is a contemporary British restaurant in Cornwall. Its marriage of exquisitely presented food with elegant and understated design was enough to see the restaurant receive the silver award in the Cornwall Tourism Awards’ Restaurant of the Year 2012.

The select, refined Asquiths menu begins with delicate options like chicken and black pudding terrine with charred leek and mushroom vinaigrette, moving onto sumptuous mains like Boccadon Farm veal rump with slow-cooked beef shin, mushroom steamed pudding, braised puy lentils, celeriac cream and curly kale. Delectable desserts include a blood orange and chocolate verrine with thyme shortbread crumb and crème fraiche ice cream.

White tablecloths and rustic exposed Cornish brickwork in the Asquiths restaurant in Cornwall keep company with a bespoke handmade mirror from an artisanal glass maker based in nearby Launceston. Artwork from a local artist graces the monochrome walls, contributing to a relaxed, unassuming dining ambience.

Asquiths is a 3-minute walk over the River Fowey from Lostwithiel Station.

    Food was amazing, staff were very polite friendly and professional. Prices are very reasonable which is attractive. Only suggestions aremaybe some back ground music ?? and to sell wine by the glass for those who enjoy a glass with dinner but also have to drive. We will be returning soon.

    Excellent. Very fine cooking that is delightfully understated. Not too much on the plate, so that everything counts - nothing overwhelms. This is cooking with ingredients that are obviously very carefully selected, mostly local. The menu dishes are individual in style, and don't blindly follow current fashion. Bread is particularly interesting and, again, individual in style.
    This was an evening following Valentine's so the restaurant was empty - suited us perfectly, and the service was polite, friendly and professional, as we've come to expect from past visits.
