One of the best views in Cornwall, even on a rainy day. Friendly staff, great food and just the right balance between bar area and restaurant... we spent over 4 hours there, so couldn't find fault. Also it's been great to see how this location has been tastefully evolved over the last 20 years!

Appauled by the service. Took my client out for a meal. I had to go to the bar to ask for coffee. I then had to get my clients coats and request he bill which was rather embarrassing. Will not be entertaining my clients again here. Very disappointed.

I absolutely love Lewinnick Lodge. The food is absolutely outstanding aswell as every single member of staff being so welcoming, polite and willing to do anything to give you the best meal/stay possible. I can’t recommend Lewinnick Lodge any higher, being both a place to stay and to eat. Me and my parter will be returning again and more than once!

We were able to change our booking time to an earlier sitting at short notice. Staff in restaurant very pleasant and quick to serve. Food came out quickly but expected better quality mussels and cod . The salt and pepper calamari looked under cooked and I had to put salt on to taste. All in all the food was good value for a restaurant with pleasant surroundings

We always like to visit the Lewinick when we are in the area. Their ambiance is very good and we enjoy the special events like 2Steak Night" It is hard to find on the web site but the special is a great plate of food, sourced locally and presented professionally.

Been here a few times the standard is very good. Lovely views and position, service is also good.
The only reason for less than a perfect five star on this occasion is that the cod in batter was very watery. Otherwise the rest of the meals were very good.

As a regular user, we found the service to be slow on this occasion, with different waiters for each course lacking continuity. It has become noisy with young children recently. The menu needs refreshing being a bit short on choice, especially for vegetarians (and even worse choice - if any - for vegans). Good location, clean and the available food is good quality.

Thankyou for making my mums birthday special! The service was excellent, food was delicious and cocktails were just as tasty!
We love the Lewinnick and always try to make it to you for special occasions. If I were to make a comment, the confit of duck was a little dry but still tasty. Thankyou again and see you again soon.

One of our favourite places to eat around Newquay.
Always welcoming, good service and lovely tasty food with a stunning view.
Perfect way to end of a fabulous coastal walk (Porth to Lewinnick)
Highly recommend both the bar area or the main restaurant. Worth booking ahead.
(Fabulous Vegetarian options too).

Great views and position but seemed to lack ambience this time around. Food ok and service ok but nothing great sadly. It used to be better - seems somehow to be not quite as good as it used to be. Real shame as with a few adjustments it could be great.

Absolutely delicious food. I come to Lewinnick for the view - especially when the weather is good - but I could not believe how fantastic the Sunday lunch was. You get real quality for a very reasonable cost. Service was excellent - attentive but not overbearing. I would certainly recommend the sticky toffee pudding!

We had a table for 2, which was situated next to the kitchen door and right next to a large birthday party. We could not hear each other from the opposite sides of the table. We asked to move and were given a nicer, quieter table in the bar area. We ordered fish cakes for starters, which came out Luke warm but we were hungry so ate them and being in the restaurant trade myself I know occasionally when it is so busy these things happen. Our burgers then came out and again they were luke warm. As I say I was willing to look past the first course being luke warm but I was not happy that both courses were like this. I sent it back and received a new meal which was hot in its place. By this time my partner had finished his meal and so I sat there on my own eating. I was not very impressed to be honest as had been looking forward to going to lewinnick for months and when we finally went the food was not overly tasty and was practically cold. I could not fault the staff, they were very polite, friendly and catered to our needs and the problems, despite being very busy. The drinks were taken off of the bill as a guesture of good will, which was appreciated but we left feeling very disappointed. It didn’t make us want to return again.

Great service
Food was delivered hot and all together and the quality was excellent . Menu was modern and choice for everyone. .prices on the food menu were about right for higher end food and we weren’t rushed for the table
The only complaint amongst all 4 of us was the price of wine and I think an offer of house wine would be helpful.

Was an ok lunch. I had a dirty glass with a piece of raspberry in it was replaced quickly. Waitress was polite and professional but had too many tables. Found a piece of gnocci in my risotto slightly makes me wonder about cross contamination. Also could not taste the treacle in the tart.

The menu is varied enough to cater for all tastes. Some great seafood options but also plenty of other choice for the less adventurous. Great place to catch the sunset. Good service. Food well presented and tasty - no complaints from anyone in our party where the options we had were the Hake & bean stew, mussels and fish & chips.
