The menu looked amazing online and the venue is beautiful so we were excited to come.
The choice of mains is brilliant but not many starters or desserts that anyone of us liked the look of. Unfortunately, the food that arrived was pretty underwhelming considering the price - the seafood linguine and lamb shank in particular didn’t meet expectations. Both fairly bland and didn’t look good on the plate.
They didn’t have any cream for hot chocolate.
The music system being played had some sort of technical fault and was making awful computer sounds loudly and repeatedly which wasn’t sorted by the staff. The staff weren’t that warm and friendly although not rude.
We were a group of 7 who came for a 40th birthday party and just didn’t feel like it was a special evening.

Food was great. Starter menu wasn’t very appealing, hard pushed to find something we fancied, specials were thai pea soup? Crispy chilli pork?! Caesar salad?? But the main courses were exceptional. The belly pork and lamb shank were amazing! It was a little hot and noisy in the restaurant which was a little oppressive. Service was very good. Throughly enjoyed!

It is our favourite place when in Newquay. Lovely setting, sound and decor. Food is gorgeous and staff are excellent.

Was a lovely evening, food was great although we had to wait a while for food, table at 6 left there at 8.20 wasn’t overly busy either, will go again just to see if this was a one off as food was amazing 😉

The actual breakfast was a disappointment warm bacon cooked but in atractive sausages, cold toast and frozen butter. Main negative comment is your filter coffee first cup arrived lukewarm, I sent it back to quote one of your waiters “sorry we are always getting complaints” a coffee came back explaining I have given you an americano at the same price, I do not like americano! to answer your probably thinking , this was a family celebration I did not want to sour it by complaining.

We have visited Lewinnick Lodge many times in the summer and always love the amazing views, but it was great to visit on an autumn evening as well - lovely cosy atmosphere, food as delicious as always, service friendly and welcoming. Everything is done with care and attention and it’s such great quality.

Always happy to come here for a Sunday roast, food is always top quality and the staff are very polite, friendly, and don't seem to be robots. Very reasonable prices. If you are looking for a nice Sunday roast with a great view on a (rare) clear sky day look no further.

Last minute booking for lunch. Was seating in the window with lovely view over the water and good views of Newquay and crantock. Staff were friendly, helpful and service was great. Food was pleasant and served within good time. Would definitely recommend to those that want a simple cream tea, small bite to eat or even a lovely filling meal as we did.

Second visit this year and it takes us five hours to get to Cornwall, so that says something about the place! We love it here however, as we mentioned in the last review, although the food was amazing, the service was amazing and our waiter was fantastic, sadly as mentioned before; Lewinnick Lodge is due a facelift. The floors and furniture are tired and tatty and it is letting the whole place down. The noise level was difficult to cope with this year but maybe with more soft furnishings, this will help it to sound less like a canteen.
However!!! We would still come back! It’s gorgeous, but please take on board what we say as it would be sad to let things slide and customers will wonder if the bedrooms are as shabby as downstairs.
Only our opinion.
Hang on to your Chef(s) and the team though, as mentioned above; it was brilliant.

Excellent location and friendly staff. Bar person may have been new as didn't know their pale ales from their dark ales, however very polite and friendly. Food was excellent, well presented and sensible size portions; could leave large appetites wanting more. Acoustics meant that couldn't easily chat to friends across a small table, that was disappointing as don't get a chance to get together very often and no one wants to spend evening shouting across a table. A few large parties and a girls night out whilst we were there which possibly didn't help, but they weren't rowdy. Would go again, one day.

Wonderful place, great service, just shame there was a complete inability to produce a well done steak. First came out completely bloody, even after it had been sent back and returned it was still very pink, definitely still a medium NOT well done..... Did not send back again as fellows diners meals were going cold waiting!!!

Having booked a table a number of weeks before when we arrived we expected our table to be ready, this was not the case. We finally sat down 20 minutes after our booking time of 3 pm and it took staff 15 minutes then to take our order. We received our starter 3.50 and then it was then 4.25 before we received our main meal. It was very noticeable that when we arrived there were 6 serving staff and at some point this was reduced to 2! The remaining staff just could not cope with the demands of the tables waiting.

Food was outstanding, although expensive. Placed our drinks order with our food and they forgot it so had the starters before the drinks arrived. Very noisy with terrible thumping music in the background. Good job the sun set was stunning to take your mind off the noise!!
