Service dreadfully slow. Food average; portions small. Noisy and cramped table. All in all a let down and pretty poor value for the price. Won't be hurrying back.

I wish I could review the food at Rick Steins but I can't. After sitting for 20 minutes without a drinks menu (and having to seat ourselves) and seeing many tables without food we realised waiting further was pointless. I'm pretty easy going when I...More

The staff was friendly but inexperienced, the restaurant should take better care if them and provide them with the necessary skills. The food was not excellent, by far. Had bread as starters (funny concept to charge for bread so expertations were high) it was dry...More

Hi Denise, we think you might have come through to the wrong page - we are a takeaway and restaurant in Falmouth, but we don't offer accommodation, so no pool - sorry!
