Eating & Drinking


The Seafood Restaurant (or Rick's) - in Padstow is a well known treat. The original restaurant is quite expensive but serves great food and has a good wine list. Well behaved Children are welcome. There is also a Rick Stein's Bistro/Cafe in Middle Street which is less formal and less expensive but equally good. He also seems to add places to his portfolio every few weeks so:

There are - of course - other places to eat in the town not owned by Rick Stein, some very good.

The Mill House - is at the bottom of the hill as you head towards Trebarwith (turn left out of the house, right at the end and go straight down the hill). The Mill House is a good pub (nice beer, wood burners etc.) that also serves great food, probably the best for a fair few miles. It's only drawback is that there is no sea view but it does have a nice garden and a mill race running through it. Children welcome everywhere.

The Port William - It's in the best position possible, perched on the Rocks in Trebarwith Strand and overlooking the beach and the Ocean. Summer evenings can be spent at the picnic tables outside supping the local ales and enjoying a plate of something fishy (or meaty or veggie) and in the colder months there is a good fire inside and a fair sized dining room. Children are welcome in the dining room and family room.

The Golden Lion - in Port Isaac is a real local's pub. On the "platt" it looks as though it might fall into the sea at any moment. I don't think there's actually any sawdust on the floor but there's plenty of spit. Don't be put off though.. it's a real pub run by real folk for the locals and visitors alike. It's the place where you'll see all the local colour and where you can enjoy good beer, friendly service and reasonable food. There is a small balcony overlooking the harbour (adults only) and a terrace with an old salvaged Navy gun on the way down to the beach. Children are welcome only in the family room and on the terrace. No real need to call to get into the pub take pot luck.

St Kew Inn - (at St. Kew) is a classic country pub, away from the sea and in a beautiful building with real fires, a lovely beer garden and set in a very pretty village. The food and beer are both good. Children are welcome in the garden.

L'Estuaire - (formerly The Black Pig) in Rock is a new operation which has gained fame in the last few months. It had been awarded a Michelin Star and two AA rosettes. We really enjoyed it when it was the Black Pig.. and the standards seem to be equally high under the new ownership. Children under twelve are not accepted into the restaurant.

St. Enodoc Hotel (near the Golf course) also has two AA rosettes but no Michelin Star. We haven't tried this either but if you're a foodie you could give it a go and let us know.
