This pair of multi-award-winning hotels nestles on the north coast at Mawgan Porth, looking out over a dramatic section of coastline. We are huge admirers of both – Bedruthan for its outstanding family offering, and The Scarlet for its luxury and eco credentials. Each employs the highest standards of local sourcing, quality and innovation when it comes to food and drink; a visit or a stay at either is a culinary treat!
What’s not to love about this quirky burger joint on the harbourside in bustling St Ives? These mouth-watering burgers made with the finest quality ingredients are hard to beat after a busy summers day in Cornwall. Sourcing and sustainability are the foundations of the Blas brand – principles we can totally get behind…
Da Bara have been making simply amazing artisan breads in their bakery for many years, and now you can get stuck in at their café too. Look out for the sausage rolls – the best we’ve ever tasted, and the Cinnamon Buns are also legendary…
This popular restaurant enjoys a stunning position overlooking Gyllyngvase Beach in Falmouth, and as you can imagine it buzzes from morning to night – especially during the warmer months. Head Chef Dale McIntosh is a passionate advocate of Cornish produce, and his menu is full of inventive dishes – it’s a tough task choosing what to have sometimes!
This family-run café in Penryn serves up excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere; the welcome here is always friendly and it’s a popular choice with locals and visitors alike. Sunday brunch is a great way to enjoy the location (nearby riverbank walks are plentiful), and the team host regular theme nights throughout the year.
This cosy village pub is such a great food destination that we wish we lived closer! The menu is made up of classic, good quality pub food executed to perfection and featuring delicious fresh Cornish fish as well as hearty meat dishes (plus vegetarian choices of course). Take your pint out to the garden this summer and soak up village life in this picturesque corner of Cornwall.
Expect wholesome pub food, produced using the finest local ingredients at this village pub tucked away on the Rame Peninsula in the far East of Cornwall. Consultant chef Emily Watkins of The Kingham Plough in the Cotswolds oversees the food offering, which is impeccably delivered by Head Chef Jack Clayton (formerly of The Gurnard’s Head). This is a must-visit if you’re in the area, which is often described as the forgotten corner of Cornwall.
