Lovely area. Small restaurant with only a few tables so book in advance. Penang duck , passanda and Korma enjoyed by all. My dhansak was probably not the best I've had so a 4 star for the evening. Would go back though x

We have been tonight as a family of 4 & can honestly say we've all enjoyed the best curries ever! Lovely, but small venue with minimal tables - booking is essential! Coming here has been the best way to end our holiday in the area!

Did you know? Despite not being an Indian restaurant, The Journeyman was recently shortlisted at the British Curry Awards and voted in The Independent Newspaper's survey of the top 50 restaurants to eat curry in the UK! Our location on the historic Saint's Way in the picturesque hamlet of Mellingey is a short 5 minute drive from either Padstow or Wadebridge & only 1/2 mile from St Issey. We have a large, free car park on site. We're ideally placed for that special night out, a family occasion, or just a chilled evening with friends. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our restaurant's mill dining room on long summer evenings or cosy winter nights. The Journeyman's extensive menu offers something for everyone with over 40 dishes selected from the world's finest cuisines.
