We had a wonderful lunch today. Roast pork, fab crackling, great home made roasties. Book ahead and Debbie may be able to put your favourite roast on the menu as she did for us. Definitely a must if you enjoy good food!

This is our third visit to Polperro which we absolutely love and each time we ensure to save an evening to visit The Kitchen. It changed hands earlier this year after being on the market for 2 years. The previous owners had built an excellent reputation for quality food and were going to be a hard act to follow however,... More

Warm and welcoming décor, very friendly staff and good but unobtrusive music. The restaurant is small and you can see into the small and immaculately clean kitchen where the chef... More

This is a relatively new restaurant run by a mother and daughter team. Mum does front of house, daughter cooks. Six of us arrived without a reservation and were immediately made very welcome. The menu was sensible with a good selection for all courses without being too much. There are about 18 covers and the restaurant was busy most of... More

My husband and I booked The Kitchen for our wedding anniversary meal. We was greeted very warmly and made to feel very welcome nothing was too much trouble. We had lovely starters and I thoroughly recommend the lamb shanks as they just melt in your mouth. The owner Debbie had even gone to the trouble to make us our own... More
