We have watched this grow from a tiny hut to what it is now a tatesfully designed restaurant & bar ( never seen the additional rooms ) outside our price range. The setting cannot be beaten. Staff on this visit were so very welcoming and friendly. Food ok but the ambiance makes up for that , so go explore for yourself the sundowns are spectacular or early breakfast Long lunch just enjoy the surrounding and escape

First visit to Lewannick Lodge but enjoyed it immensely. Excellent views, and, impeccable service. Could not fault the food, had the cod, which was excellent, and the partner had the vegetarian curry which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Certainly will return.
Parking is easy.

Went on Saturday night 8/8/18
Booked for 9pm asked for a cosy table as it was our 1st wedding anniversary we was put on a table that seats 6 people
& just behind us was a very loud table of about 10
Ordered are food &5 mins later the lady comes back & says we have run out of chicken , felt so disappointed & like the late seaters didn’t matter
Food we had was just ok for me fish & chips very over priced for what you get my husband had steak which he enjoyed
All in all I wouldn’t go back was a 1st timer left a impression but not for the right reasons.

Busy and bustling when we arrived, not the easiest place to find especially if you're using SATNAV.
Still, the staff are warm and friendly and attended to our needs whilst busily going about their work.
The food was amazing, as would be the views on a clearer day. This is a lively restaurant, staff that are friendly hard working and still have time for you. Lovely experience and well worth the drive over.

The food was good, but the menu has been the same for months so could do with refreshing. There are specials, but not many that are not fish. Also the dessert menu is so uninspiring and has been the same for ages. However, it's a lovely setting to eat whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner and most of the staff are very friendly.

We have stayed and eaten here before and have taken the same group of friends for breakfast before.
My husband and I were disappointed yesterday but didn’t want to say anything in front of our friends.
The Earl Grey tea didn’t taste very nice and wasn’t very hot.
Even though the menu said ‘sourdough bread’ we all thought it wasn’t and was just normal bread.
The food became cold very quickly and we put this down to the plates not being that warm.
We have had better here and my husband and I have said that it was not good value and next year when we meet with the same friends, we would look for another restaurant for breakfast.
Disappointing.

We love to come to Lewinnick Lodge for a special occasion during our holiday. The food was outstanding, especially the tomato and goats cheese starter. Unfortunately, we found the noise level very high. There was a large, demanding table of diners next to us and they were very noisy. We felt sorry for the poor waitress who had to deal with their constant demands. My husband and I couldn’t have a conversation across the table. We plan to come back to stay as the accommodation is excellent in the New Year...hopefully the restaurant will be quieter!

I first started coming to the Lewinnick over twenty years ago, well before the redevelopment of the facilities and the expansion. I'm delighted that - having made the trip down from London for a birthday meal - the core essence of what they do is unchanged. The views and feel of the restaurant and terrace are amazing: even on a misty day, the sea fret and waves make for a compelling backdrop. The relaxed atmosphere and wonderfully friendly staff mean that anyone feels welcomed: with muddy boots and a dog, or dressed up for dining - and all of this combines to make a lively and comfortable blend. This is helped by a great quality service and food - plenty of excellent local choices, fresh options, and real classics on the menu. The incorporation of local gins and drinks rounds off what is still a fairly well hidden Newquay gem!

Given a tip from a local (ice cream bar) to visit Lewinnick Lodge as one of the only places they would recommend to go out to eat. We went for a family treat whilst on holiday for a few days and the tip was very welcome. We shared a meat platter starter between the 4 of us which was enough as we wanted to sample different items including olives. Mains were very good and the crab linguine was too much for my teenage boy to finish. The burger was excellent which my other son devoured whilst my wife had fish and chips which was equally as good and my choice of the Tuna (rare) with rice and salad was exquisite. My wife tried the Raspberry Gin Fizz cocktail which was so nice she managed 3 whilst I stuck to draught lager. One minor mishap was on the order for pudding whereby one was forgotten but a minor issue on a lovely evening in a fantastic location with very welcoming and hospitable staff.

We had a good time this week. My only negative comment is related to £25.00 corkage charge which I think is excessive. We had a particular bottle of champagne we wanted to add to the other bottles of wine we purchased for very special, sentimental reasons. However, we could not justify such an exorbitant extra cost to open our bottle. I think £5 would have been more appropriate and similar to other restaurants that I have contacted since our visit to ask the details of their policies on corkage fees.
