Pixie Lott has described Cornwall as 'pretty' after playing Tunes in the Dunes.

The British singer-songwriter has shared photos on social media after a family dinner in Newquay.

Staff at The Fish House Fistral say they were 'thrilled' when she grabbed a bite to eat on Monday night.

It is after her performance at the nearby festival in Perranporth over the weekend.

Staff say she visited the restaurant with her family, who are described as 'just lovely'.

She has also been posting about her Cornwall trip on Facebook.

Elise Harwood, who runs the restaurant with her husband and chef Paul Harwood, said: "Somebody called and asked to book a table and we were really busy, so we hadn't got many left.

"But we managed to wiggle them around a bit and got a table later on.

"She got a table around half past eight, nine 'o' clock, and she came with her family who were lovely.

"It was great, really exciting for the girls but we don't like to bother special guests, we just let them get on with it.

"They seemed to feel really comfortable and really relaxed having their meal".

Elise says it was a real honour to have the star sitting down for dinner and told Pirate FM it was a real boost for the team.

She said: "It means that people want to come to our restaurant, which is great - it means that somebody has told them how good it is and they really wanted to get in.

"It means we have a restaurant worthy of someone wanting to visit of that status".

Other famous people to have checked out the restaurant, which sits just above the beach, include chefs Gordon Ramsey and Dave Myers from the Hairy Bikers.

Elise said: "I think it's great, it's a difficult one because we don't like to bother them, we like them to come because they want to eat really great food.

"We don't ask for pictures or ask them to put anything on social media, but if they do obviously it is amazing because they have such a following. But we would never pressurise them to do that.

"Just people talking about it though, we've put a little thing on our Facebook page and it gets people talking - it's good".
