Good news for chef Ben Prior, who has bounced back from his award-winning Ben's Cornish Kitchen, in Marazion, going into voluntary liquidation. He’s now helming the stoves at this harbourside venture known for its “good” food and location (even if the “ambience doesn’t match the sister beach restaurants” – e.g. Porthminster Café and Porthgwidden).

Overlooking the harbour and with a large terrace – impressive views are a highpoint at this contemporary (lots of wood, glass and steel) spin-off from the Porthminster Beach Café, situated closer to the centre of town. Too few reports last year for a rating, but such feedback as we have is positive all-round.

“A breathtaking view of the beach” is a highpoint at this three-year-old in the centre of town, which is consistently well-rated for its modern brasserie fare (and is open from breakfast).

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).
