The Shed

Had Friday afternoon off, and went for lunch at The Shed in Falmouth. Not been in there before, but it had been recommended by a couple of people, and on the whole was very good.

The service was attentive and prompt, although the waiter somewhat bizarrely kept affecting an Italian accent when he was probably actually from somewhere like Lanner. The table for two was a little small (and wobbled), and we had to affect a bit of furniture moving before there was enough room to sit down. And nothing says class quite like sprayed silver plastic chairs.

The wine was good, although not chilled enough, and only one glass size on offer. And as soon as we'd ordered the drinks menu was taken away, precluding further experimentation (possibly this was to make enough room on the table for the plates). The food was very nice, I had spaghetti and meatballs, freshly made and in a very generous portion size (was also quite chuffed that I didn't drop any down my white shirt, even after two glasses...).

The place wasn't too crowded, but busy enough to be friendly, and on a clear day you'd have a great view up the harbour. Certainly somewhere worth another trip, I think.

The comment about the waiter probably being from Lanner had me in stiches. I'm from Cornwall so it's nice to be reminded of these places (although perhaps not Lanner!)
