Ben Tunnicliffe’s venture in a 300-year-old inn by the sea wall serves the freshest catch just off the boat from Newlyn Harbour, and scrawled up on the chalkboard menu – and “what a little gem it is” with its “incredible food”.

The “freshest seafood right off the boat from Newlyn Harbour” is the formula behind Ben Tunnicliffe’s “fantastic” boozer, occupying a 300-year-old inn on the harbour.

Ben Tunnicliffe took over this 300-year-old harbourside inn in 2012, and its “fresh, innovative and fun” ethos continues to please; the food is “straightforward, carefully cooked” and fish-centric – no surprise given Newlyn Fish Market just round the corner.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
