A "modern" and "cool" Cornwall cafe has been named one of the UK's best brunch spots according to top chefs.

Box & Barber was among the 28 names that were put forward by expert chefs in a list curated by The Times.

Discussing the creation of the list the newspaper wrote: "No long and lazy weekend is complete without brunch. Everything about it is laid-back, from the loose timings (anything from early morning to mid-afternoon) to the eclectic menu. Sweet American-style pancakes? Yes please! Classic full English? Why not?! This selection of favourite brunch destinations from some of the UK’s leading chefs includes an Indian-influenced menu in Bath and an Australian-style one in Belfast.

"The settings may vary, from a beachfront café in Margate to a converted shipping container on a Bristol wharf, but what they all have in common is great food, relaxed dining and the perfect space in which to fortify yourself against the week ahead."

Box & Barber was recommended by Emily Scott, the executive consultant chef of Calypso Grill in the Cayman Islands.

She said: "It’s a very cool surfer hangout — I’m never sure if I’m cool enough to go there. It’s quite contemporary and modern and it’s just a fun vibe.

"They always do a really good range of lovely smoothies including a pink pitaya made with dragon fruit, strawberries, banana and almond milk. Their pancakes are pretty good too."

The cafe has also been well-received by diners, with it having earned an impressive 5/5 score on Tripadvisor from 475 reviews.

One reviewer wrote: "Great service. Gorgeous food with little tables outside on a not very busy street.
