Eating Out

Cornwall is a paradise for food lovers!  From fine dining to quirky beach cafes, Cornwall is known as a prime foodie destination with Rick Stein, Jamie Oliver and Nathan Outlaw among the many top chefs championing the county’s abundant seafood and fresh produce. Here in West Cornwall we are surrounded by some of the best restaurants and pubs serving the freshest of local produce.  Fish and shellfish straight from the sea, locally produced meat and vegetables grown in the surrounding fields.  There are literally dozens of eating places to choose from and far too many to mention individually. As well as those in our immediate area there are also places nearby, like St Ives and Porthleven that have built a reputation for excellent food.

We have three pubs within a few minutes’ drive all serving good pub food.  Mousehole is just fifteen minutes away and has superb restaurants – far too many to mention individually so you will have plenty of choice!  Should you wish to leave the car behind, local taxis are available.

Logan Rock Inn

Just 10 minute away is the award winning Logan Rock Inn, a 16th century traditional village pub serving a variety of real ales and excellent home cooked food.      

Bakehouse and Steakhouse

The Bakehouse and Steakhouse is a popular restaurant 20 minutes away in historic Chapel Street, Penzance.  Set on two floors, each with its own atmosphere with a modern, contemporary yet warm and inviting atmosphere.    

Lamorna Wink

Just 5 minutes away at Lamorna Cove, independent freehouse Lamorna Wink serves local beer & ales on tap from the cask. Generous portions of high quality, local food with daily specials.    

Ben’s Cornish Kitchen

Ben's Cornish Kitchen, 25 minutes away at Marazion, is a very popular restaurant serving excellent food using fine local ingredients. The wine list has been put together with marked thoughtfulness so that it is easy to match food and wine. Service is knowledgeable, considerate and not intrusive.  

Victoria Inn

The Victoria Inn is an old traditional pub 30 minutes away in the pretty seaside village of Perranuthnoe near Marazion. They serve exceptionally good food and friendly service.  

The Old Coastguard

Also at Mousehole with views to St. Clement's Isle, is The Old Coastguard, the sister hotel to the Gurnards Head. Serving a traditional brasserie menu, they take good ingredients and give them a very simple but classic treatment.  Eat at scrubbed pine or oak tables on the Upper Deck and in the bar, or on the Sun Deck at sofas with just a pane of glass between you and the palm tree lined gardens. Or, best of all, eat on the terrace looking down at the sun-dappled sea.
