We visited Austell's 5 years ago and had a great meal in a lovely restaurant new to the area. Our second visit was as good as the first with no relaxation of their desire to please and provide a fine dinning experience in a warm and friendly environment. With pure white table cloth to sparkling toilets. A very special place... More

Came there for lunch as dinner was full. Only Sunday set lunch with not much choice but all we ordered was as good as in a Michelin star restaurant. Well done!

We were a bit concerned about the evening as there were 4 of us and when we first telephoned we were told the restaurant was full and then when we declined to be put on a wait list we were told that we could be squeezed in. In the event everything was fine and we could access our table at... More

Outstanding - in all respects. Food is some of the very best in a good 50mile radius, and it is a "must eat at" venue when in the area.

My girlfriend and I dined here over NY. I have a gluten and dairy intolerance, so many places struggle with accommodating a strict diet. I explained my dietary requirements on arrival, they went off to speak with the chef to see what they could offer. They came back with a few options which I was delighted with. The food was... More

Brett and Emma have run this amazing restaurant for the best part of a decade and in that time I have never had anything other than great food and top service. This time the Mushroom Tortellini was about the best thing I have ever tasted. Don't delay eat here now!!!

So, my partner and I went to Austell's whilst we were holidaying in Cornwall. We were so impressed with our first visit that we booked to visit again a couple of days later, and that's not something we normally do as we like variety. Funnily enough, we had driven all the way from Milton Keynes and stumbled across a restaurant... More

We went here for second visit last Saturday. Service was slow but food was superb. This visit was worse, if that is possible. Slow to be seated, order taken eventually. Food came and was brilliant. Then the wait. The wait. If only they could fix this the score could be off the chart. Second course seemed to come after 30... More
