From the renowned restaurants of Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver to small independent pubs serving great local food, Cornwall has some wonderful places to eat. Here is a selection of the team’s favourites that we think will make your stay at our luxury apartments even more special:
A Jamie Oliver inspired social enterprise helping young, disadvantaged people build a career in the restaurant industry. Overlooking the beach at Watergate Bay, Fifteen has a superb menu of Italian inspired food served in a beautiful setting. Make sure to book early as Fifteen gets booked up quick!
A great local pub situated in the village of Halsetown. It’s only a short drive away from our self-catering accommodation and has quickly become a favourite of the Sail Lofts staff. The food and service is great and it has a wonderful atmosphere. We recommend the one minute steak!
A traditional pub located in the beautiful village of Gulval, near Penzance. Owner and head chef Tom Franklin-Pryce learnt his culinary skills at the Michelin starred Abbey Restaurant under Ben Tunnicliffe, before taking charge of his own kitchen at The Coldstreamer. They serve modern British cooking with an Asian twist.
The Tinners Arms
Built in 1271 The Tinners Arms is set in the idyllic village of Zennor on the North coast of Cornwall. With stone floors, open log fires and low ceilings, this pub offers a traditional and welcoming atmosphere. It has great food with a changing daily menu for lunch and supper as well as real ale, and music every Thursday night. Why not walk the coastal path from St Ives, have a great lunch and a pint, and get a cab back?
The award-winning Gurnard’s Head offers great food, with a menu that is small, seasonal and delicious. It has more of a gastro pub feel than The Tinners Arms but it still retains that warm, traditional feel. With it’s breath-taking location and good selection of wines, this pub is worth the trip if you’re looking for really good food.
Trengilly Wartha is a great family-friendly pub tucked away near the picturesque Helford River, which makes it the perfect rest stop after a long walk in the country. The Sunday lunches are not to be missed and there is an superb range of malt whiskies.
