One of my favourites. Plenty of choice of food . Asian , local , an excellent selection. The chef cooks the curry to your liking, just the right degree of spice. Always book on each trip to Padstow.

Visited during our holiday. 3 couples. The menu was pleasantly varied. The food good with plentiful portion sizes. We thought not very authentic, but still very nice. Basic dining room with simple service. Well priced. Would go back.

Chicken tikka kebab starter was very tasty. Nepalese lamb garlic curry with coconut (chef's special) was delicious. Ice cream sundae with clotted cream was yummy. Bill reasonably priced. Waitress and chef were friendly. Restaurant cosy and inside converted mill. Highly recommend!

Did you know? Despite not being an Indian restaurant, The Journeyman was recently shortlisted at the British Curry Awards and voted in The Independent Newspaper's survey of the top 50 restaurants to eat curry in the UK! Our location on the historic Saint's Way in the picturesque hamlet of Mellingey is a short 5 minute drive from either Padstow or Wadebridge & only 1/2 mile from St Issey. We have a large, free car park on site. We're ideally placed for that special night out, a family occasion, or just a chilled evening with friends. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our restaurant's mill dining room on long summer evenings or cosy winter nights. The Journeyman's extensive menu offers something for everyone with over 40 dishes selected from the world's finest cuisines.
