Cornwall Restaurants

  • Seadrift cafe - Porthleven

    It is very easy to walk past the sea drift and not think much of it, but that doesnt mean you should. A very small place if you want to eat there, reservations on busy nights is essential. One of the owners is also a photographer so you can see her beautiful photographs there hanging on the walls. The place is also dog friendly with a bowl of water...

  • Fooooood

    We just love our food and whilst we tried to self cater and do the trip on the cheap, we couldnt resist places to eat and drink, so heres where we ate and drank:-Padstow - Cherry Trees coffee house, right on the harbour, small place but popular and cozy doing nice toast and tea!-St Ives - Mermaid Inn - great restaurant with character and friendly...

  • Waterfront pub in St. Ives

    The waterfront of St. Ives is lined with pubs and restaurants and takeout joints. Check out the menus and see which one is less crowded to make your choice. The Lifeboat Inn is large enough not to feel too closed in if it's crowded. The exterior is an older building but the interior is gleaming with wood and a log fire. There are tables and booths....

  • Beachside Inn - Mawgan Porth

    One of our stops along a winding Cornish road was a beach at Mawgan Porth. It's a small cove with just a few businesses along the road and some fancy looking modern homes up on the hills overlooking the sea. One of the places to eat is the large Merrymoor Inn, a big yellow place with a large outdoor patio with outdoor seating as well. Lots of...

  • Nice restaurant in Fowey

    We had a late lunch/early dinner at The Globe, mainly because it was after 2:30 and it seemed that most of the pubs in Fowey at this time of year (May) stopped serving food at 2:30 (serving again after 7 p.m.) in the off season. Some proper restaurants were open all day and this was one we found was open so we took advantage.The Globe is in an old...

  • Great inn in North Cornwall

    This wonderful inn is a surprise first because it is so remotely located (and hard to find). Also, the ambience is a warm traditional setting in the pub in the front and also the dining room in the back section which is nicely arranged so that you are not sitting beside the person at the next table. The inn is next to the Church of St. James the...

  • Good English food

    We sort of stumbled onto this restaurant as it was just around the corner from our b & b. It is cheerful in a medieval style with suits of armor, swords, etc. decorating the place. The theme may be a little kitschy but it the restaurant is warm and appealing with lots of wood paneling inside the crisp white exterior. The lighting includes lots of...

  • Skip the Cornish Pasties

    The tea room at Heligan is a nicely decorated room with a fair variety of foods on offer. We stopped there before venturing into the garden for some scones as a mid-morning pick-me-up. They and the coffee were delicious. I can't say quite the same thing for our lunch. I guess there are many different kinds and quality of Cornish pasties but I...

  • Decent pub and restaurant

    This is a pleasant inn with both a pub and a restaurant situated very near the beach and surfing action. Although the pub had a warmer feel, we ate in the restaurant which was brighter and pleasant with nice decor. It is a very family-friendly place as we saw a couple of families with small children dining. We had the pate starter which was quite...

  • Traditional Cornish Pasties

    This tip isn't about a restaurant in particular, but about a traditional Cornish meal - the Cornish Pasty. If you ask me, to come to Cornwall and not try a pasty would be a crime, they're so good! For those of you not in the know, a pasty is a meal wrapped up in a semi-circle of pastry with a thick crust. The traditional pasties contain beef,...

  • Just Outside Truro

    (December, 2005 trip) - After our long drive to the Truro area from Barnstaple, on the north coast of Devon, in mostly drizzle, with a bit of rain, we were starting to get quite hungry. Our mood was not improved by about a half-hour wasted along the way in St. Columb Major where we first stopped for a lunch-time meal. Even after waiting well past...

  • An Intimate Cornish Pub

    (Feb. 2004 trip) - The Old Quay Inn is a very quaint and comfortable pub located in Devoran, a small village about mid-way between Truro and Falmouth. On the Friday evening that we went there for a meal, its bar area was hopping with customers and there was a nice buzz of conversation in the air. In this very relaxed atmosphere, one of the patrons...

  • Ah - A Cornish Pasty

    (Feb. 2004 trip) - As we rolled down the A30 into Cornwall, we finally started to feel the need for some lunch as we neared the town of Bodmin. We pulled in off the highway but found that the narrow and very steep streets of town were quite busy and confusing. Not having spotted anything to our satisfaction, we cleared out of town on one of the...

  • A smuggler on the Roof!

    The Admiral Benbow, locally known as "The Benbow" is a charming place serving good food at reasonable prices.It is in an old house (perhaps not quite as old as publicity has it!) and is popularly supposed to have been at one time a very run down public house, serving as head quarters for one of the local smuggling gangs. The figure on the roof (see...

  • Gotta have their Fresh Seafood !

    Superb service & decor, right in the heart of the town of St Ives.The menu is extensive, and food is very fresh. First time ever I had Crab Soup, and boy, was it delicious !!Also the mussels were great, and don't forget to pick your dessert !!!

  • Rick Stein

    Rick Stein is a local seafood chef known best for his simple yet exquisite dishes and his love of Cornwall. Not just another Celebrity Chef with the expected tv shows and cook books, he also runs a restaurant, fish & chip shop, delicatessan, hotel and a seafood school, all in Padstow. I supposed the desired place to sample some of his cooking is...

  • Overlooking St Ives Harbour

    Obviously the fresh seafood is the speciality - there is a menu on the website.They also offer accommodation at a reasonable price.The building dates from around 1312 and is said to one of the oldest inns in Cornwall. Fantastic position right on the harbour. Would be lovely to sit outside in the warmer weather and with the tide in. We both had...

  • Delicious food in a very pleasant...

    The Hayloft is a restaurant that we visit fairly regularly - it's often first choice for birthdays and special occasions. Set in a beautiful old building, the restaurant is full of charm, and is a very popular eatery amongst locals. The food is fantastic - certainly not your usual pub fare. There's lot of fresh fish and steaks on the menu, an...

  • Local pub

    Wonderful warm friendly local pub.About two min walk from Mount Haven Hotel.People were friendly and the pub had a beer garden over looking the sea and also a huge window inside with views to St Michaels Mount.There was an open fire and it was a very laid back and cosy pub.We had two meals here.We had chilli one day and steak and kidney pudding...

  • Pub with food

    Nice pub located in Bodinnick across the river from Fowey. The bulding is the white one on the left hand side above the ramp.

  • Cream Tea...

    Cream Tea's are a Cornish (and Devonshire) institution. Supposedly taken mid afternoon they are pure indulgence!You will be supplied with scones, strawberry jam, clotted cream and a pot of tea.For me you have to sit outdoors!Two nice places with good scenery for a cream tea are the cafes at Trebah Gardens and Kynance Cove.

  • Perranporth beach bar

    The Watering Hole is located at the back of Perranporth Beach and is a great little beach bar.There are tables inside and outside and it’s a great place to finish the day.I wouldn’t say this place was cheap as such - a pint of Budweiser was £3 and an admittedly big plate of Fajitas around £10.

  • Icecreams Galore!

    The Black Rock Cafe caters for the day visitors to Widemouth Bay. It serves light refreshments, and sells most types of beach requirements, lotions and the like. Always a great selection of Ice Creams! Nothing better on a hot day, but I bet you won't get them back to the beach before they ment, haha.

  • The Old Quay Inn

    The Old Quay Inn is a very traditional British pub, facing onto Restronguet Passage. Located in Devoran, it is only about 5 miles in either direction on the main highway to either Falmouth or Truro. We had a very enjoyable evening meal here!


    Having watched Rick Stein on the t.v we had developed a liking for this man and his passion for food-in fact one of the main reasons for our visit to cornwall was to eat in one of the Rick Stein restaurant (there are four or five in padstow) we chose the creme de la creme- THE seafood restaurant.this is the top of the range choice of his...

  • Cornish Pub

    Attractive exterior to pub on main road in Hayle. Dark wood interior with wood dividers between areas. A dimly lit and cosy place. Interesting photos of demolition of local power station!

  • Small but Cosy

    The small hut like is listed "historic building" overlooking the whole of St Ives Bay and Godrevy, now servers as a shop and cafe. The shop has all the essentials of life, basic groceries etc., as well as a good range of books and beach goods. A friendly family run business. Open all year round. Range of snacks, ice cream, cakes, Hot and cold...

  • Pandora Inn

  • Ice cream & local food

    Roskilly farm is a working farm with its own herd of Cows which produce the milk that makes the best ice cream in Cornwall, in my estimation.They make more than just icecream though. Cornish clotted cream and fudge is also amongst their specialities as well as local home grown cooked food. Ice cream! Although Cornish Cream Teas come a close...

    The restaurant itself inside is lovely, it is in and old buliding and its interior rreflects its beauty.round to the back of the resturant it has a stream running along side it and you can also sit outside and enjoy a cream tea! lobster!and any other fresh local fish on the menu

  • A stroll to work off the food?

    After you have had your fill of icecream and other excellent homemade foods, take a stroll around the walks that have been set out around the farm.

    The farm can be found near the village of St. Keverne and is well signposted. If you are looking for a place to stay in Cornwall, the farm has accomodation for hire. The telephone number is 01326 280479.
