The Mill House, Trebarwith

A very charismatic inn, bar and restaurant on the way to Trebarwith. Food can be expensive but we found that on Wednesday nights they do a low price menu and have what is called a Pauper's menu, which is very good value for money and very tasty.

On a nice day there are some very nice tables to sit outside as well.

St Kew Inn

Very nice restaurant and pub with a lovely beer garden. Very relaxing place to go on a nice sunny day or for a meal in the evening. Genuine old world with a lovely old fire in the bar.

Food is not the cheapest but is good quality.


Port William - Trebarwith Strand

A nice pub with good value for money food and superb views of the coast and Trebarwith Strand. A great place to sit and watch the Atlantic when the weather is wet or windy and the waves are up. More details can be found at:


Places to Eat

There are a large number of places to eat in Port Isaac and the surrounding region. Within Port Isaac our favorites are:

The Golden Lion

We love the log fire, the Higgs Special Bitter and the atmosphere. Nowhere else quite captures the essence of the village as it was in quite the same way as the Golden Lion (try to get to see the downstairs bar where the old smuggler tunnel came through)
Telephone: 01208 880336

Fresh From The Sea

Lovely fresh crab and lobster sandwiches and a great atmosphere make a visit to Fresh from the Sea impossible to miss
Telephone: 01208 880849

Restaurant Nathan Outlaw

This used to be known as the Edge but has been taken over and moved up market by Nathan Outlaw. Only just open (March 2015) we are told it is very nice but also pretty expensive and we can't provide any "hands on" comment. Unfortunately whilst it used to be a bar and restaurant its now only a restaurant, so no opportunity to call in for a beer after a walk!

Reservations can be made here:

The Port Gaverne Hotel

If you fancy stretching your legs then a brisk 10 minute walk will take you to the lovely Port Gaverne. The hotel is welcoming and provides good food. Especially pleasant on a long evening when you can sit outside and look over the bay.

The Chapel Cafe in the Port Isaac Pottery

Recently opened this is a very pleasant cafe that you can visit whilst visiting the pottery.

‘This is mainly a seafood restaurant, but they do serve vegetarian food. We have eaten here and the quality of the service and food is very good, a bit more expensive than the Golden Lion but worth it if you want something more special We would advise that you book a table as the restaurant does get very busy.’
A harbour front location in the world famous village of Port Isaac, highly experienced catering team, unique historical building (circa 1542) & access to the outstanding Cornish larder of produce is a recipe for customer satisfaction.

Over years of sourcing the best local suppliers we believe that all our ingredients are some of the very best Cornwall, & indeed anywhere, has to offer.
