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.

  • ((((( 22 June 2017 by David Williams from lostywithiel

    We liked the atmosphere, with the nice high ceiling, and not crowded, lots of space between tables.
    Service was very good, quiet, unobtrusive, and with very sound knowledge of what was on each plate. Food was very good:
    crab & ginger spring rolls and spiced monkfish, both excellent. The bread was very nice; I lopve the malty taste.
    followed by poached lemon sole: delicious, beautifully cooked and presented. The veal was also very good, and again beautifully ptesented. (for my pallet a touch oversalted, but then I never have any salt on vegetables, so probably not typical).
    Pino Noir we very much enjoyed. You must be the best restaurant in Lostwithiel, and for some area around. Thanks for an excellent evening.
