Open all year round
Ben’s chalkboard-style menu reads like an ode to the sea. Mackerel, cod, brill, bream, scallops, crab, mussels, bass, john dory – all of these and more feature according to seasonal abundance. Working closely with our fishmonger and buying direct from day boats ensures that the freshest fish reaches our tables each day. It also enables us to play our part in safeguarding the sustainability of Cornwall’s precious fisheries for future generations.Discover More
