Planning your break in Cornwall – our favourite places to eat and drink

24 April 2017:Cornwall

There’s so much choice when it comes to food and drink in Cornwall.

From quirky Cornish pubs to Michelin starred restaurants and cosy cafes, all tastes can be catered for in the towns and villages surrounding Mother Ivey’s Bay Holiday Park. We take a look at just a few of our favourites:

The View

The View restaurant in St Merryn offers a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, with stunning views. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menus include lots of classic favourites – including full English breakfasts, steak and catch of the day, as well as sharing platters and vegetarian options.

Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, Port Isaac

Restaurant Nathan Outlaw celebrates small, original and delicious seafood plates – which are cooked to order and served when ready. Fish is bought from the local inshore day boats, which land fresh fish and shellfish daily. This smart yet casual restaurant has two Michelin stars.

Strong Adolfos

Located just outside Wadebridge, Strong Adolfos was voted Best Café in the South West by readers of Food Magazine in 2016. Serving breakfast, lunch and great coffee, it’s a favourite place to stop and refuel. Their cakes and pastries are always hard to resist too.

Paul Ainsworth at No.6

Found in a lovely Georgian townhouse in the centre of Padstow, this restaurant serves British food with a focus on Cornish produce. Boasting a Michelin star, No.6 has a friendly atmosphere and offers a children’s menu for family dining. If you’re looking for something a little more Italian, Rojano’s in the Square – also owned by Paul – can be found in the town.

The Cornish Arms

Part of the Rick Stein group, The Cornish Arms in St Merryn offers a simple British pub menu, with dishes including burgers, mussels and chips and scampi. During the summer sit outside and enjoy the surroundings – well behaved dogs are allowed in the pub and the large beer garden.

Ben’s Crib Box Café

Said to have the best breakfast in Padstow, Ben’s Crib Box Café can be found on the South Quay. With great food, good service and value for money, it’s a place that both locals and visitors head to. There’s even a view of the water too.

St Enodoc Restaurant

Overlooking the Camel Estuary, St Enodoc Restaurant offers great food and a relaxed environment. Dine out on the terrace, or stay within the restaurant during chilly evenings and enjoy locally caught fish, followed by a delicious dessert – such as passion fruit crème brulee.
