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.

Really surprised to find such terrific imaginative tasty food at this local bistro whilst on holiday.
Staff were really lovely and informative will be making it our first stop next year when we return. The food tasted so fresh and was obviously very good quality and locally sourced. Recommend it to all booked

Botht the duck liver and ham hock starters were excellent, although I personally found that the duck livers and the base on which they were served tasted better when eaten separately rather than together. The sole was superb (all aspects of the dish), but the croquettes that accompanied the lamb did not seem to really do it justice, and my wife said that she would have preferred plain croquettes. Service was friendly, professional and attentive and left nothing to be desired. The tea lights in the wall niches were a very effective touch. The cutlery was well-chosen and a pleasure to handle, and the wine glasses were attractive and of good quality. Tea lights and flowers on the tables all added to the appeal.

We enjoyed a superb meal. The restaurant is beautifully furnished, the service was first class and the dishes nicely presented. We'll definitely be coming again.

We love this restaurant and have been there several times. The quality of the food is excellent and consistent too. Lots of unusual things too like kimchi [love it] and cucumber sorbet [deelish].
