Featured Mousehole Restaurants
1. 2 Fore Street Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Mousehole 2 Fore St - TR19
This “busy” bistro a short walk from the harbour serves “fabulous fish-based food with wonderful accompaniments” from chef-patron Joe Wardell, who trained in the classics under Raymond Blanc. “We’re regulars in Cornwall and celebrate anniversaries here – the fresh seafood and blackboard specials never disappoint”.
2. The Old Coastguard British, Modern restaurant in Mousehole The Parade - TR19
An “impressive location” commanding sea views to St Clement’s Isle makes this seaside hotel a “great place for fish and seafood” landed just two miles away at Newlyn. It’s a lesser-known (and less highly rated) sibling to the Gurnard’s Head and the Felin Fach Griffin in Wales.
3. Tolcarne Inn Fish & seafood restaurant in Penzance Tolcarne Pl - TR18
Ben Tunnicliffe’s centuries-old pub with a “lovely” terrace serves a “menu that’s almost exclusively fish and can change twice a day” depending on the catch – “unsurprising given its location next to Newlyn harbour”. “Nothing beats a great plate of fish that was landed only a few hundred yards away… if you close your eyes and picture a fisherman’s inn in an old Cornish port, the Tolcarne is what you’re seeing”.
4. The Shore Fish & seafood restaurant in Penzance 13-14 Alverton Street - TR18
“Exquisite cooking, with fish straight from the Atlantic” again wins very high ratings for Bruce Rennie’s very personal 14-seater, where service is by the man himself. Seafood is the speciality here and there are lots of Japanese accents used in the preparation of the six-course tasting menu. No walk-ins, as the fish is purchased in the morning for the number of reservations.
5. Tremenheere Kitchen British, Modern restaurant in Penzance Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens - TR20
Set within a “beautiful sculpture park” outside Penzance hosting works by art-world stars James Turrell and Richard Long amongst others, this pleasant eight-year-old restaurant offers an “excellent selection of vegetarian dishes” (but not just) and classic cream teas. Stop in for the “lovely brunch and then walk it off” in the grounds – or else grab a takeaway from their hut, and picnic on the hill with views of St Michael’s Mount.
6. Victoria Inn British, Modern restaurant in Perranuthnoe
2023 Review: “Simply all that you could desire of a gastropub” – this attractive twelfth-century inn welcomes everyone from walkers from the nearby SW Coast Path near St Michael’s Mount to dog walkers with its enjoyable bistro-style food – “good Sunday lunch” in particular.
