Whilst on holiday in Cornwall we were fortunate to book the last table available during our stay. Not only was this the best meal we had in Cornwall, it’s the best meal we’ve eaten out in a long time! My husband is a very good...cook and becomes frustrated by the usual fare served at many restaurants as he thinks he can produce better food at home, although I enjoy eating out for the ambiance. We were both rewarded at The Greenhouse. It is a small, friendly and unpretentious place which is obviously very popular so book ahead. Both Leonie and Neil made us feel welcome. The menu changes depending on what is available I assume and has limited choice, which we think is a good sign. My husband and I had scallops to start with which had a slightly Asian flavour and were delicious. Our friends both had haddock soufflé with a carrot sauce which was tasty but quite large helpings. To follow, my husband had monkfish which was perfectly cooked. I had venison which was tender and delicious although I didn’t manage to finish the dish. We all had different flavours of the excellent homemade ice creams or sorbets. Neil was very happy to chat about how he makes them and even produced a sample of the beetroot sorbet for us to try which we all enjoyed. We took our own wine for which we paid corkage. As we left the restaurant and headed into the pictures square of St. Keverne, the church bells were chiming which was a perfect end to the evening.More

We turned up and were welcomed by Neil who explained there were running a little late so could we delay by about 20 mins. His polite manner and way of talking to us as people meant that this was not a chore in anyway. He...took our bottle of champagne and placed it in the freezer so that it was deliciously cold when we got back. The menu was easy to read and follow, and we enjoyed some complimentary bread and olive oil as we tried to decide on what choices to make from the menu. What made this difficult was not the endless choice of options, but the fact they all looked so delicious. The food when it was delivered was simply AWESOME, and we cannot praise the chef enough. All three courses we requested were cooked expertly, presented brilliantly, and tasted delicious. Neil was attentive when he needed to be, but left us alone to enjoy our evening together, thank you. We were so impressed that we have re-booked for the near future when we have friends coming down from Portsmouth.More

What a wonderful find! A friendly welcome from the host and good efficient service throughout. Food is fantastic - expect top-class ingredients perfectly cooked. We both had scallops to start followed by beautiful pieces of turbot. Excellent desserts followed to complete the meal. Prices for...food and wine are quite reasonable for the quality provided. The venue is quite small and obviously very popular so do book ahead. Well worth a detour if you’re staying anywhere near.More

We are occasional visitors to the area and have visited before. Last Thursday was excellent. The menu was so tempting and whatever we had chosen would have been good. My cured trout starter was amazing followed by a loin of cod cooked perfectly finished off...with home made peach ice cream. The lovely couple who run this place offer perfect service I can't wait to go back. It's relaxed and wonderful.More

Excellent food in a cosy, intimate village restaurant. Delicious fish dishes and unusual desserts. Very good value for money and you can bring your own wine.We managed to get the last table available on Saturday evening and went back on Friday. I only wish that...they were open more often!More

We booked before we came down to Cornwall for our holiday, and were so glad that we did. The Greenhouse is very small, but every place was taken on a Friday evening in November. Most of the others seemed to be regulars, which is always...a good sign. The food was delicious, especially the furiyaki beef. An interesting range of natural wines too.More

We restaurant is normally closed on a Wednesday evening, so we had the Restautant to ourselves. Leonie and Neil could not have done anything else for us. We had Scallops, Sardine, souffle and gravlax as starters. Our main course we had bass, Scallops, Duck, Italian...burrata. The Quality of the food, the service and atmosphere of the restaurant was fantastic. We had guest from London and their comment was ' We could not get better in London'. Thank you, Leonie and Neil for making our evening so perfect.More

Found this restaurant by chance, having visited the area for many years, but wanting somewhere special to celebrate 2 birthdays and a retirement. Wasn't sure what to expect, being in such a small village, but we were all totally won over by the amazing food...and personal service. There was a wide range of dietary requirements in the group, but all catered for with no fuss. Everyone loved their food, but the cheese soufflé and hake were particular favourites. Thank you so much for making it such a special evening - we look forward to visiting again next year!More

We chose Scallops, duck, Cauliflower Cheese Souffle, Hake and Kahlua Baba, the quality of the ingredients and the preparation absolutely perfect. The flavour of the food was also stunning. I would also like to add that they had to apologise for the fact that the...souffle failed the first time around and apologised for the slight delay, worth the wait! We have never been able to book here in all the years of visiting, but this year we managed and it was not a disappointment at all, will definitely return and highly recommend. Such fabulous, informed and passionate hosts.More

Hi there, only if it's essential that they should be there as in guide dogs I'm afraid. It's only a small place, and we need all the room :) thank you for your query.
