Lovely food and a lot of choice on the two menus. Unfortunately, we had our back to the sea and were sat at a table in front of the bar, so it felt busy at times. We will book again, but early next time for a table by the bay windows. We highly recommend it!

Enjoyable evening with family and friends, let down by the poor table service.

Waiting staff a bit too 'casual' in their approach, resulting in only half the Sharing dish being delivered to the table i.e. Baked Cornish Camembert, Focaccia and Cider Chutney delivered to the table without the Focaccia...a 10 minutes wait to engage the waiting staff and then another 5-10 minutes to get the Focaccia.

Again for desserts, we were handed the dessert menu and had to wait 15-20 for the waiting staff to return to the table to take our order.

Considering the choice of restaurants on offer, it may be some time before I give Lewinnick Lodge another chance to impress.

I’d been lead to believe that this place was outstanding. We arrived and were given a really nice table by the window. Our drinks orders were taken and we ordered our starters from the specials menu. My partner ordered king scallops and at £10 we expected a little more than three baby ones. Somewhat over priced. Our mains arrived 35 mind after our starters were cleared away. Nobody came over to tell us that there was a delay and when we finally got hold of someone to ask, we were just told that the kitchen was busy.

It was rather expensive for what we actually got and the drinks are on par with London prices.
The staff were nice but the service incredibly slow.

It was nice, but it wasn’t fantastic and I’d probably look to try somewhere else first on my next visit to Newquay.

We have dined frequently at Lewinnick but was really disappointed with our meal on Sunday. Both our roast dinners were cold and tasteless, the dessert poor value for money and a particular member of staff very rude. Will be a while before we visit again unfortunately.

Lovely elegant boutique dining. Delightful and inspiring setting. Food beautifully prepared and tasty. My only reservation was that I expected (from the description, and price) the breakfast orange juice to be very freshly squeezed. I don't think it was.

Thoroughly enjoyed my father's birthday meal last Thursday. The staff were very attentive and pleasant and the food was spot on! My parents can sometimes be a hard act to please when it comes to dining out, but both said that they would definitely like to return in the future , many thanks to everyone concerned.

Wonderful evening with friends and delicious food. Our friends had never been as they live in Brighton but they were extremely impressed. It was a shame that the large birthday party table were so incredibly loud! However, it didn't really spoil the evening and we had a great round corner table overlooking the sea. Fabulous sunset that evening.

Found the Lodge on trip advisor and thought the location was excellent so decided to check it out for Sunday lunch. We, being the hubbie, sister-in-law and brother-in-law and mother-in-law and I were not disappointed. The location is stunning, the food excellent and the staff helpful and friendly. We will be back.

My wife, my sister and I had lunch at the Lewinnick Lodge on Saturday. The weather was good, but there was a chilly wind so we decided to eat indoors. Without the wind we would surely have eaten outside to take maximum advantage of the stunning views of the North Cornwall coast. The food was excellent. My sister started with ribs and had crispy beef for her main. Both dishes were faultless. My wife had fishcakes. They were sized generously and their flavour was, to use her word: "delicious".

I started with salt and pepper squid. Both the squid and the aioli it came with were perfect. For my main, I had a rib-eye steak cooked blue. I've eaten steaks all over the world and the most difficult to cook is 'blue'. It is easy to overcook and equally easy to undercook with little effort made properly to sear the outside. The perfect blue steak needs to be cooked on a very hot griddle if it is to be blue in the centre, yet slightly caramelised on the outside. The Lewinnick scored a bull's eye. I've not had a better steak anywhere. We were too full for dessert - or so we thought until my wife and sister took a look at the menu and could not resist the sticky toffee pudding with ice cream - which they shared. Again, it was sensational. Properly sticky without being too heavy and stodgy. I shouldn't finish without mentioning the staff. So I've ticked that box. No, I haven't: they were efficient, polite and hard working. Who could ask for anything more?

All in all, this was one of the best meals, in one of the best restaurants with one of the best views we have enjoyed. I would recommend it to anybody. Unreservedly.

Lovely setting on the outskirts of Newquay with fabulous views over the Atlantic. If you book early you may be lucky enough to get a table by the window. Or ther is plenty of seating outside if the weather is good. The food was good, not cheap but worth it for the ambiance. The menu is fairly limited but probably something on there to suit all tastes.

Visited Lewinnick Lodge with a group of friends one lunch time. We were looked after very well throughout and had delicious food. The view would have been fantastic if it hadn’t been misty. But I’ve been a few times before and when you get the view it’s outstanding. 10/10 place.

I know the Lewinnick Lodge from several years ago when I visited it often. I liked it very much then, and I like it now. The location is unbeatable, and the food offer is interesting and has lots of choice for special diets (i'm mostly veggie but will eat fish when I'm out).
I'd suggested it as a good place to meet to friends who live in St Austell. I'm in Redruth and they're adding it to a 'must return to' restaurant list.
But I thought the food was a little disappointing. I had Hake, which was a bit dry and served with a cold tomato salad. Perhaps just not to my taste, but it seemed a very odd combination. A couple of roast tomatoes would have been lovely but a great big pile of cold ones not so much.
The main issue though was the noise level from the music which was both loud and really intrusive with a bass line that made it impossible to speak to each other. Our very nice waitress (Alex) turned it down for us, but still, we felt something more melodic and background would have made our dining experience much more enjoyable.
We will be back - but perhaps for breakfast, or when the weather is balmy enough to sit outside away from the music.

Lovely meal at the Lodge-beautifully presented and quality was excellent. Service was the only thing that let it down but we tried not to let that spoil it. If you want gorgeous food and stunning views it is very recommended.
