    Lovely environment on a cold winter day for lunch. Service impeccable. Food good as usual. Value reasonable for quality but apart from 2 or 3 wines in the early/mid £20s the wine prices are getting a bit silly.

    The food was amazing as usual but every time we come here the service seems chaotic and disorganised. A lot of staff but they didn’t seem clear on who was responsible for what and as a result we had to ask for orders to be taken after a long frustrating wait, both for drinks and food. All the tables around us were commenting on how poor the service was. We have no issue paying London prices for great food but the whole experience was a bit stressful waiting for service. We also stood about for five minutes in front of the till and the wait staff before we were given any acknowledgement, same with the couple next to us. We saw staff prioritising setting tables for next guests who were yet to arrive rather than taking well overdue orders for the guests who were actually sitting down.

    After a recommendation in the house guide we are staying in for Christmas, I managed to book a table at the Pantry before they close for the Christmas break. We were not disappointed. We ordered a starter each and main course and couldn't resist the incredible cakes to finish. EVERY mouthful was a treat. It's so long since we went for a meal and didn't leave underwhelmed by something. You can tell when people pour their heart and soul into a place and the food. This isn't just another hidden gem of a cafe, it's passion and love that has gone into making every ingredient they use make you stop and savour every moment of it. I was so blown away by the cakes, I went to find the chef responsible to tell him. Don't hesitate to go and find it and enjoy! The Pett family

    Its not often you have a great meal in a great location with perfect service and so on. New Yard does it all. We thought about what is the most appropriate one word to describe the evening, yes it was what we said above, yes it was lovely, yes everything was very nice and so on. For us though it was just special.....

    we had an wonderful evening out for my wife's birthday - on arrival we were entertained by members of the helston town band playing chrismas carols which was very nice. the chef / co-owner then introduced the evening, telling us about how the food was sourced and prepared. the meal was excellent, as was the service - the waiting staff explained each course as they served it. overall the entire dining experience was very enjoyable.

    The food was excellent but found the menu a little pretentious maybe as there were a few things listed I was unaware of what they actually were and perhaps a simple clarification would improve the experience? Who knew that 'Spec' was a salami for example? Otherwise the food was excellent, Michelin standard in my view and experience - well done chef! My sister had the mint tea which was hugely disappointing and the slightly condescending response when the issue was raised - not as a complaint but as a simple 'it didnt really taste of mint' was not welcomed. My sister grows and drinks her own mint tea so is well aware of what is needed - basically we paid for a pot of warm water. Minor issues which will not prevent us from returning for the excellent food but I do firmly believe if you ask for a review you wish to learn from your customers. Otherwise, keep doing what you are doing because the food is a delight!

    Every dish was a delight. Carefully prepared and creatively flavoured. The pizza was exceptional and so was the cod's roe. The coffee & walnut cake was totally unnecessary but also vital to try. We drove over an hour to try the food and it was worth it. Will be back.

The chef comes out before the meal to run through the menu and tell you a about the restaurant concept which makes the experience even more special! I have already recommended!!

We loved the care that was taken with everything and couldn’t fault a thing. We loved the way that the chef spoke to the room to introduce our food for the evening and explained their principles. A lovely way to celebrate our Cornwall stay. Thank you so much.
