CLA lunch at The Royal Cornwall Show

The CLA lunch has gained a reputation for being one of the best meals on The Showground and we are determined to continue this accolade in 2019. We will be offering lunch within the CLA marquee on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and this year for the first time you can pre book your places online to secure your place and save time on the day. Bookings are taken at the base of this page.


There will be two sittings on Thursday and Friday and one open sitting on Saturday. On Thursday and Friday  1st sitting will start at 11.45am and will end at 1.15pm. Your table will need to be vacated by 1.15pm to enable us to re-lay for the second sitting which starts at 1.30pm. The second sitting is anytime from 1.30pm. Lunch ends at 3.30pm.

Bookings are taken at the base of this page - just decide on which day and which sitting you would like and choose the box below. Simply enter how many guests are attending and continue through the payment process. We will ask Saturday bookings for a time you wish to sit. Those guests that eat on more than one day can book for them all in one transaction. You can also pre book table wine to save time at the bar. Your wine will be waiting for you on your table. Once booked and paid an immediate email confirming your booking with a payment receipt will be sent through to you. Just check that the booking details are as you wish. You will see a reference to delivery and shipping - just ignore that!

We will have plenty of options to accommodate most special dietary requirements on the day, however if you have a specific requirement please email
