The Boatshed is a pleasant, informal place. The exterior is a combination of a wood-panelled facade and whitewashed stone. It occupies several floors: the ground floor is a wine/café bar; the middle floor a restaurant; the top floor a nightclub. Iniside it's quite a light and warm feeling place, with a nice combination of modern and old-fashioned furnishing. The menu is quite wide and includes plenty of fresh local seafood. The prices are quite reasonable; the majority of the wine is under £10 a bottle, and what we had was quite nice stuff. The food was tasty if unspectacular, and the portions of a decent size. The service was good, with staff always close at hand but never loitering with intent as sometimes happens. All in all it's a nice little place for a relaxed meal.

The Admiral Benbow pub built in the 17th Century, on Chapel Street in Penzance is worth a look if only for the smugglers lookout who lies across its roof. It is also one of Penzance's oldest hosteleries and used to be the haunt of the infamous Benbow pirates.
The food is your usual pub fare at pretty reasonable prices. There is a good choice of fish dishes and coffee and Cornish cream teas are also on the menu.
The main bar, the Lady Hamilton, is upstairs and there is a good range of real ales to be had. There is also a games room and lounge bar.
The landlord, Mick, has only been here a few years, and interestingly decided to decorate the interior with nautical bits and pieces. Some of the memoriabilia come from local wrecks.
Children are welcome.
Opening hours are;
Mon-Sun 11am -3 pm and 6pm-11pm
