Some may remember Webb’s Hotel in the centre of Liskeard; at one time there was a lot of controversy because it had lain closed for a long time. But about five years ago, it was refurbished and turned into offices and the cellar area, which was formerly used to house one of the town’s hairdressers, is now a beautifully furnished restaurant.

The restaurant was first opened back in 2005, but new owners took over in 2008 and, with that, transformed the menu. Opening times are Tuesday through to Saturday with lunch served 12 to 2 pm and evening service is 6.30 to 9.30pm.

As a wheelchair user, I encountered a little difficulty getting in through the main entrance as the doorway slopes down from right to left and leaves a small lip on one side. On entering we mentioned we had a reservation and were greeted with a smile by Nikki, who took our coats. We were then led to our table where I was pleased to notice how much space there was to manoeuvre around. The décor is contemporary with pictures of ocean going yachts in full sail.

The menu has a wide range of meals with starters no more than £5.95. Main courses varied from £9.95 to £18.95 and desserts from £3.95 to £6.25. Almost all the food used is local produce and Nikki informed us all of the fish was caught in our local waters with the exception of the tuna. It was great to see the restaurant offers a gluten free menu too.

For our meal we struggled to choose and ended up having exactly the same! We started with the soup of the day, which was mushroom, smooth in texture and absolutely delicious. For our main course we were presented with a large succulent pan fried chicken breast on a bed of creamed cabbage, which neither of us had tried before but most certainly will again, served with tarragon, new potatoes and a whole grain mustard sauce.

Never one for cheesecake, fortune most certainly favoured the brave in this case! The mixed berry cheesecake served with vanilla ice cream and a raspberry coulis was simply divine.

There is a toilet large enough for a wheelchair to enter but not enough for it to turn around. There was also an emergency pull cord to summon help if needed. The key to this facility is kept behind the bar.

My companion and I agreed the whole experience was excellent and the evening very enjoyable. Our food was served promptly by polite and courteous staff and there was no delay between courses. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We were informed that it was always best to make a reservation as it sometimes gets very busy – no wonder.
