If you're looking for fine dining, cutting edge techniques & experimental flavours in all honesty we are probably not for you
If on the other hand you enjoy good honest cooking, fresh produce, flavoursome food and hearty portions with a nod to the classics, all washed down with good value wines and tasty cocktails come in and enjoy what we have to offer!
Tony is our head chef and has years of experience having worked with some great chefs along the way in St.Ives, he heads a very small hard working team, has one oven from which he cooks every main course to order (no small feat!) no prima donna's, no "Ramsay" types, no shouting! Just very accommodating guys who are happy to adapt if they can. Our focus is on good flavours, not too complicated and completely unpretentious! We do say that if you don't order a starter there will inevitably be a bit of a wait for your main course as proper food takes a while to cook but we think you will find it's worth it! (Beth can always mix you a cheeky cocktail whilst you're waiting.)
In these extremely challenging times since Covid reared it's ugly head please be patient and respectful to our staff who are working under immense pressure to deliver a great service both front of house and in the kitchen.
Bethany runs front of house (as I have been shovelled into the kitchen to help the boys this year!) and our part time fabulous ladies Steph, Sophie, & Jo will look after you at the tables, our focus is to welcome all of our lovely customers and give you a great night out. We understand that there are lots of restaurants you can choose from and are privileged that you've chosen us! A great dining experience isn't just about the food, it's about the whole experience and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Cellar Bistro prides itself on friendly and welcoming customer service and a wonderful dining atmosphere. The restaurant is cosy & atmospheric with soft lighting and candles, you will feel equally at home in your best bib and tucker or a comfy pair of jeans! We have filled the restaurant with an eclectic collection of upcycled furniture and vintage finds, giving The Cellar Bistro a completely unique decor.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
