Never disappoints!. Valley restaurant is by far one of the best places (probably the best) to eat in Polzeath. Amongst an array of overpriced restaurants and cafes serving distinctly average food, Valley Cafe is by far the best place to eat in the village. With a small straightforward menu, serving well-presented bar food at normal prices, super friendly service in a relaxed environment, just a few steps from the beach. We tried the halloumi burger and the Salt & Peper squid. Delicious!.

We stayed in May and the food and choice was fabulous, I would go as far as saying that it was the best food around, returned this week and we knew it would be our staple with our baby; oh no! It was like a youth club, with random people walking in and out of the kitchen, rolling up cigarettes, tying their hair up. There was a blackboard of food which was mainly burgers or chicken nuggets, and it was just cheap fast food at restaurant prices, we are sooooo gutted. Maybe it's the end of the season and this is why?!? Please please go back to how it was.

Visited a couple of times whilst staying at the Valley campsite.
The restaurant is clean, food is great, atmosphere very relaxed.
Would definitely go again.

First time we have been here, dispite walking past for years. Friendly staff, and pleasant surroundings. Only burgers on the night we went (main away for a couple of days), tasty and good value. We will go back. Makes a nice change from the oyster catcher.

Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review,

It's so great when we meet new customers, and we're glad you enjoyed your evening here. We see you visited us whilst our chef was taking a break and we ran a BBQ style night. We would love it if you're able to come and see our new, expanded 2017 menu when you're next in the area!

We do pride ourselves in offer locally sourced, quality food at a fair price, and can see you've found this during your visit.

We would really love to welcome you back soon!

Found this little campsite with a lovely bar. It's friendly staff will serve your delicious food and drinks with a beautiful smile. It is perfectly quiet as it is situated merely 150yrds away from the main hustle and bustle of the village. So much better than the the other 'Wetherspoon' style establishments.
