    We had a wonderful evening for our last day in Cornwall and the garden bar delivered the final touches. We had the perfect view overlooking the harbour and sea. The food was delicious and we had a very romantic and relaxing evening.

    Outstanding value. Well organised and excellent service from the outset. Night time views over the harbour and bay were a bonus. Food was well presented, and cooked exactly how we had asked. Best meal we had while in the Penzance area.

    Very nice location with great service and staff. The price is at the top end for afternoon outside the very top hotels and London but it was acceptable. They got the order slightly wrong and offered to correct it but it was fine. Would go back again.
