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.

    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.

    Another highly enjoyable visit. The perfect place to take our visiting friends.

    Another very enjoyable meal at Asquiths, although the cured gurnard wasn't a dish either my wife or I would order again (too gelatinous, a sort of firm jellyfish texture). The slow cooked lamb starter was excellent, as were the baked cod and the venison. The Argentinian gewurztraminer started well but had a weak finish, and when we later compared it with an Alsace gewurztraminer, the latter was clearly in a different class. Pleasant, efficient and friendly service as always.

    A fascinating menu and each dish met or exceeded our expectations. Lovely mix of flavours and beautifully presented.

    Delicious and clever flavours. Clear care and attention to detail in every plate. A special place for special occasions with a relaxed atmosphere.
