Have you eaten at The Square at Porthleven?

Owner's description

Located in the heart of Porthleven and overlooking its picturesque harbour, The Square At Porthleven is the perfect place to sit and watch the boats come and go. 

The brasserie-style menu, warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere make for a perfect venue at which to enjoy a chilled lunch, a lively dinner or even just coffee and cake.
And during the summer, why not dine al-fresco on our terrace?

Our ethos is “local is best”, and the menu changes daily according to what is available; our fish is landed locally, meats are sourced from local butchers and artisan producers and we use a selection of local vegetable suppliers.
