  • The Alverton / Truro

    Alverton Restaurant - Truro

    If you enjoy both modern and traditional dining, come to The Alverton for a contemporary take on classic food. Their Sunday lunches are a sophisticated version of this much-loved ritual, while their elegant afternoon teas are a must.

    You don't need to be staying at The Alverton to tuck into their generous brunches (although the rooms in this country house style hotel are lovely). Take lunch on the sunny terrace, or book a table in the AA rosette-awarded restaurant, which overlooks the...

  • Mr B's Ice cream

    Mr B's was launched in 2004, and has since become a real Hayle institution. The current owners run two ice cream parlours, one at either end of town, and both are incredibly popular.

    The ices combine classic Italian gelato flavourings with local Cornish ingredients, and some really bold combinations. Come here if you like your ice cream to zing with flavours and cheerfully bright colours; and if you love toppings and sprinkles, this is the place to be.

    As well as ice creams, Mr...

    Scoff Troff Cafe

    If you want to start the day with a good breakfast, Scoff Troff is the place to come. There’s always a great buzz here in the mornings, as it’s a popular breakfast, brunch and coffee stop for both locals and visitors.

  • The Golden Lion / Port Isaac

    Golden Lion Port Isaac

    This old Fore Street pub has become a famous film set. It stars as the local in ITV's Doc Martin and plays itself in the film about the Fisherman's Friends. It's also a good place to enjoy a pint of St Austell's finest, overlooking Port Isaac harbour. 

    Inside, the 18th-century rooms are traditional and cosy - just the place for a hearty meal on a cooler evening. However, when the sun's out, try to grab a spot on the balcony terrace, which has those coveted sea views.

    Come to this welcoming little place for fantastic Italian-style pizzas, served by the sea. You can also order a take-away from The Angry Anchovy, but that would mean missing out on this friendly restaurant.

    As the name might suggest, the Beach Hut has bagged a prime position on the water's edge at Watergate Bay. It's part of a collection of dining spots at the Watergate Bay Hotel.

    Huge windows make the most of its water's edge location. While a plant based menu takes care of planet-friendly meals. That's not all though, healthy post-surf picks include salads, tapas-style plates and freshly caught fish from the grill.

  • The Rising Sun / Truro

    The Rising Sun - Truro

    This welcoming little place on Mitchell Hill is both a dining pub and a good spot for a drink or two. It's such a cosy and inviting place, that it's hard to believe that the 200 year old building was a deserted shell until just a few years ago when Tom and Katie took it on.

    Today, the Truro pub serves modern British food, specialising in local ingredients. Tuck into hearty dishes like loin of beef or pan-fried pigeon, or look out for the special catch of the day, typically served with...

    Rojano is named after its original owner, local character Stan Rojano, who opened his restaurant here in 1974. It's now run by the Paul Ainsworth family; however, chef Sam Smith's Mediterranean menu pays homage to Stan's original family recipes.
