Rather pretentious atmosphere but food and service was very good. I had grilled plaice and dh had cod curry. 3 courses for £23.95 was pretty good value I think. It had to be done (when in Padstow, eat at Rick's place!) but wouldn't repeat it.

The menu is short but excellent, the service is very good normally but when we advised them the Plaice was 'wet' and not very enjoyable they didn't respond beyond, 'oh'; I would have expected this removed from the bill. However, the remainder of the meal...More
