Our mini foodie guide

If you are anything like us then seeking out great food on holiday is an absolute must. Our background is in organic farming, so we have a deep love of seasonal cooking with good quality, locally sourced ingredients. Luckily in Cornwall, we have plenty of fantastic spots for you to try, and we have compiled some of our favourites below.

The Rocket Store

A casual seafood bar / restaurant situated in Boscastle Harbour, with a daily changing black board menu based on what is caught that morning. Fresh seafood is caught by Alex’s father and the meat is reared on their farm a few miles up the road. As much care is given to the vegetables as it is the meat and fish, and we must mention the chickpea dish, as it is worth going for alone! It’s really the atmosphere that makes this place - lots of trendy people, sipping on natty wines and dining to the guitar riffs of the Rolling Stones. We love it.

Best for: a dinner with friends with a glass of wine (or two).

Four Boys

Newly opened Four Boys in Rock is making a name for itself with their excellent food and beautiful views over the Estuary towards Padstow. With nods from Gordon Ramsay and Nathan Outlaw this is very fast becoming the spot to be.

Best for: a long casual lunch.


A Paul Ainsworth gastro pub that consistently delivers. If you’re after some classic pub food executed with flair, then this is your place. The menu includes triple cooked chips, oysters and a Cornish shepherds pie made from locally sourced slow-cooked lamb shoulder. The bar is well stocked with locally brewed ales too. We think you’ll love it.

Best for: Families with kids.


Situated just outside Port Isaac, Rockmoor is a converted horse box which sells delicious sandwiches, pastries and speciality coffee. Look out for their evening pop ups, where you can pre order tasty meals to collect and enjoy at home.

Best for: A pit stop after stomping around the cliffs.

Nancarrow Farm

Nancarrow farm is a little further afield, but it’s worth mentioning their brilliant Farm Feasts, which happen all year round. Everything as you might expect is grown or reared on the farm and cooked in their wood fired kitchen. There are long rows of communal tables lit by candle light, and guests get to know each other over hearty plates of seasonal produce while listening to a live folk musician in the background.

Best for: For those seeking something a little different.
