    Had a lovely Sunday lunch. The food was amazing and all locally sourced. Beef was tender and delicious and I’ve never seen such an impressive Yorkshire pudding! Lovely atmosphere with log fires and a real homely feeling. Would highly recommend

    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.

    WOW! Absolutely loved spending my Saturday evening eating incredible food in a restaurant with a warm cosy vibe next to the fire. Each dish is so carefully curated and tasted amazing. 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!!

    An absolutely fantastic evening. A beautiful setting with a cosy fire, good food and wine - what more could you want? The team looked after us beautifully. 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.

    Glorious evening of first class food and service at New Yard. Each of the dishes presented seemed to surpass the one before and they started at “Wow”. I tried 2 of the suggested wines which matched the food perfectly. Soundtrack for the night was perfect and now my go to playlist. Staff passionate about the food and the underlying drive to create a sustainable restaurant- will be back in the summer. Only suggestion is to serve filter coffee please!

    We have been coming to the New Yard for over 30 years and hadn't been since the new management took over - Trellowarren is a very special place and the New Yard is at the heart of it. Great service - friendly and helpful, lovely ambience (but a little too noisy with the loud music). The beef was excellent but the starter and veg not really to our liking - too complex. Pudding ok but not special - we remember an outstanding marmalade based bread and butter pudding in years gone by. Wine very good but a little expensive - £36. £200 for Sunday lunch (for four) was on the expensive side given the comments above. It feels and looks like a very good and special bistro (as it was once upon a time) but top end restaurant prices aren't really justified - particularly for a set menu with no choices. We might have been unlucky - I hope so.

    One of the best restaurants in Cornwall for fine dining. Had the wine pairing. artichoke veloute, plaice with chicken and chive jus and 60 day aged sirloin ; all first class; as good as you will find. We are regulars but this was one of the best menus so far.

    All the reviews were right! I am always a bit circumspect when it comes to reviews in Cornwall, but this was a fantastic meal. Many tasting meals have left me feeling stuffed at the end, but this was nicely paced with perfect portions. The quality of the local ingredients really came through. Most importantly, this restaurant shows an example for the entire industry. Simplifying everything and reducing the carbon footprint. I hope the Green Michelin Star is followed by two or even three. Definitely worthy of the designation.

    Fantastic intro from Chef Jeff, who gave a detailed account of what they are trying to do at the New Yard restaurant in terms of having a supplier-led menu; hence the reasons why there are no choices (apart from vegetarian) . It was such a gorgeous atmosphere and the food was outstanding; it looked incredible and tasted even better. What a wonderful surprise it was to have such an amazing restaurant 5 mins walk from where we were staying. The wines were reasonably priced and some were by the glass - you could also have a pairing with each course if you fancied it. The Pantry also did fabulous pizzas, bread, pastries and cakes - just a shame they aren't open all week!

    An amazing menu, paired perfectly with some beautiful wines. A short talk from the chef/owner explained the restaurants ethos and a bit about each course & provenance of the local ingredients. The staff were attentive, unobtrusive & very knowledgeable. The evening flowed & each course was a foodies experience not to be missed - highly recommended.

    Went for our anniversary meal as my wife's a bit of a foodie and she loved the Pantry (cafe next door run by the same owners). The hosting was fantastic and the food matched the expectations. Don't expect the online menu to match what you eat (as they can't always get the relevant produce based on how they run) but this will not affect the quality of the food. Would not advise to picky/fussy eaters but the experience for food enthusiasts is second to none.

    Whilst the location and setting of the restaurant was outstanding, we were left very much disappointed by our experience. We had the sunday lunch which, although the vegetables were delicious, we were only provided two thin sliced of beef, of which was mostly fat and unpalatable. In the end, I could only eat half of the beef. Following this, we were forgotten by the waiters when waiting for our deserts. After seeing 3 tables who had arrived after us be served (and finishing) their deserts, we had to enquire when ours would arrive. Another 10 minutes later, we are finally given our desert. We received no apologies for this experience, despite complaining about the quality. Again, the restaurant itself is beautiful and there were pleasurable aspects of our meal, we felt it lacked the value for money and we don't see ourselves returning anytime soon – saying this comes with sadness, as we truly wish to support local business during a difficult period for hospitality. I certainly hope New Yard bounces back by ensuring that their guests have an enjoyable experience beyond the aesthetics.
