    Food was excellent, we had three courses. Limited menu but hardly surprising when you see the size of the kitchen. Wine list was ok. Tables well spaced apart for Covid reasons but no masks worn by staff which was a minus. Overall the experience was excellent.

    We love the vibe of this place - The food is delicious and staff were friendly and efficient and we return whenever we are in Cornwall. When the weather allows great to sit outside and watch the world go by!

    We visited Pilchards whilst in Cornwall twice and had a fantastic meal on both nights. The first night we had a tapas style meal- everything was yummy. On the second night we had a lovely lobster, a real treat to end our holiday.
