Gourmet Restaurants In Cornwall

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Cornwall is one of the best vacation spots in Britain. When the weather is right, the sea can be pleasant and not too cold. Seriously – where can you go to get sun, beach, great shopping, and beautiful scenery without having to get injections before you go? And the food? Well, the food is awesome. If you’re planning on an adventurous trip to Cornwall, maybe you’re staying at the Barefoot Pop-up hotel on a beautiful beach or maybe you’re staying at a bed and breakfast, either way, here are some brilliant hotels that you’re in for a treat.

The Old Coastguard

Located in Mousehole (yes, you read that right) is The Old Coastguard. This restaurant is a destination all its own, with beachfront access and incredible views. If you can pry yourself away from the view, you will discover that the food is as fabulous as the setting. Fishing trawlers anchor just 2 miles away from The Old Coastguard, and supply the restaurant with a fresh catch every, single day. Estates in the area supply fresh beef, cheeses, and poultry. Classic preparation of the dishes, combined with the exciting burst of flavor that comes from freshly caught seafood, make this easily a 5 star restaurant. Add it to your list of destinations.


In Porth Newquay, you will find the Beaucliffes Restaurant. It is located at the Porth Veor Manor, and offers a wide variety of chef specialties. With its perfect location – on the beach, of course – Beaucliffes is another of those great Cornish restaurants that serves fresh-caught seafood and locally grown produce, mutton, poultry, and beef. Enjoy cocktails in the conservatory, surrounded by incredible views of coastal Cornwall.

Victoria Inn

The Victoria Inn in Perranuthnoe, West Cornwall is a lovely setting in an attractive village by the sea. The owner of the Victoria Inn is also the chef, who trained with some pretty big names in cuisine. And, as you have come to expect with Cornish fare, it is all fresh. Local fishermen bring in their catch of the day, with fresh cod, bass, and hake abundant on the menu. Farmers in the area bring produce, pork, poultry, and beef. At the Victoria Inn, you can select from a large vegetarian menu that features their signature dish of potato, chickpea, and lentil curry. The icing on the cake, so to speak, is that, since this is an inn, you can book one of two rooms. With fireplaces. And, they accept dogs.

The Plume of Feathers

While a rather strange name for an inn, The Plume of Feathers has made a significant impact on the Cornish landscape. Besides a 5 star restaurant in the main building, the old barn and the stables have been converted to comfortable, welcoming rooms for guests. This bed and breakfast offers not only excellent dining to its overnight guests, the restaurant is open to the public with – wait for it – fresh fish and local produce and meats. The owners have even opened a conservatory, which can be reserved for groups. You can enjoy a stroll around the beautifully landscaped and maintained grounds, then enjoy cocktails and a meal in the cozy restaurant.
