The chef at Asquiths knows what he is doing - it is my favourite restaurant. The food is divine and the sauces amazing. Service is excellent too.

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.

    Starter was the beautiful ham potato and black pudding with a crispy hens egg.
    Main was the duck very nice
    Dessert was the rice pudding fritters also very nice, my son had the earl grey pannacotta which was the best one I have ever tasted, the restaurant was comfortable with nice attentive service the toilets could do with modernising, not a reason to stay away, 5 ?? would definitely return

    As always a friendly professional greeting, efficient service without being rushed and most importantly a delicious dinner. Go with an empty stomach as bread is irresistible and has to be eaten, so need space for all the rest. Veal always good cooked with a different twist each time. Always leave wanting to go back soon.

    A great place to eat - elegant, friendly and relaxing. The modern British food is exceptionally good - thoughtfully prepared and presented. Given the quality, the food is good value, and the wine and drinks list is not overpriced. Highly recommended.
