For those who haven't visited 'Slice of Cornwall' yet, where have you been?!
I just know I'm going to struggle writing this post, as I'm only one sentence in and my belly is already rumbling...
I first discovered 'Slice' a few months ago, via several recommendations from friends. I then booked a table for my birthday and absolutely loved it.
Maple chicken waffles...
I was so impressed with my meal and the overall atmosphere, hence why I have teamed up with them today to bring you the following foodie review.
Where are they?
'Slice of Cornwall' is based at Trewardreva Mill in Constantine, near Falmouth - serving food daily from 9am - 4pm.
I will admit that the location is a little bit discreet, so I hope you're ok with driving down a few country lanes! This however was no issue for my large vehicle, and if anything, I like the fact it stands alone from the city as it adds to the overall quirkiness.
Here is a little highlights video I made, showcasing my visit:
So before we jump into the physical access, let's talk about some of the food! Because that's why you're all here...
"Berry Brownie" - two 6oz waffles, hot berries, brownie, clotted cream & pearl sugar.
"MORIIO Baya" - Cornish 6oz flat iron steak, gouda, dirty onions, lizard leaf, parmesan, garlic mayo & mustard.
"Hash UP!" breakfast - large hash brown, sausage patty, roast tomato, portobello mushroom, smoked back bacon, poached eggs, house beans & sourdough toast.
NOM NOM NOM. I cannot fault the food in the slightest and to be honest, I haven't stopped thinking about the hash brown since!
The menu was packed full of choice, with many vegetarian and vegan options available too. Staff also took great care in ensuring there were no allergies or intolerances during the order.
My only real concern when it came to accessibility, was the threshold to enter the main building. Whilst some wheelchair users may cope fine with this small lip, others like myself may struggle.
All it took for me to get over this step was a small pull from behind, however this is not ideal if you are alone or wish to go inside independently.
Upon my visit, I met with Sophie who is the co-owner and company director. I am pleased to say that she was incredibly accommodating and open to suggestions on ways to improve accessibility.
She has since agreed to purchase a portable ramp which can be left inside the door for staff to assist wheelchair users if needed. Once this new addition is in place, I shall update this post.
I personally love the interior design at 'Slice'. There is great lighting throughout, with a real stylish yet cosy theme.
Tables just inside the door are usually reserved for customers with access requirements.
Inside the restaurant there is also a range of exclusive gifts for sale, from various Cornish brands.
There are two toilets inside the main restaurant, both of which are wheelchair accessible.
Whilst they may not be the largest bathrooms, there is still enough turning space for an average wheelchair. The walls are also fitted with several hand rails, and baby changing facilities.
'Slice' provides the perfect vibe for some alfresco dining on a warm Cornish day.
The outdoor decking area has level access, ramped directly from the car park. I like the fact there were various table designs and sizes too, which enabled me to pick which one was best suited for my wheelchair to fit underneath.
Oh and most importantly... dogs are also welcome!
There are plenty of parking spaces situated around the outside of the building - with some on a slight gradient slope.
After speaking with Sophie, she has agreed to create a designated disabled bay near the main entrance too.
The car park also has some light gravel on the floor, however this should not cause any trouble for wheelchair users.
Overall, I would not hesitate in recommending 'Slice of Cornwall' to any of my friends or followers. I was so impressed with the food and general hospitality we received.
It's so nice to be able to highlight a local business who takes pride in their customers, by being so open to improving accessibility.
Slice also very kindly gifted a £50 voucher to one of my readers during the promotion of this blog post. *Competition now closed*.
As always, my opinions are entirely my own. Food from this post was gifted to me via 'Slice of Cornwall'.
