Eating out in Cornwall? Yes please! There is no better county than Cornwall for food and drink! And over at Real Cornwall magazine we love planning it, shopping for it but, best of all, eating it. Especially on those occasions when someone else does the hard work for us!
So while we’re out enjoying this beautiful place we’re taking note of the new places for food as we go by. And we’re popping back to try them out so we can bring them to you!
A café-bar with a fabulous wine list & great home-cooked food. On the wharf at Penryn
We visited on a working afternoon that we planned to involve paperwork and nothing more than a quick drink! But the roasts proved just a little too tempting! And we stayed…for a second glass of wine… and then just a little bit longer…
And the roast did not disappoint! Of course the meat was delicious, but the real stars of the meal were the gravy (rich, meaty and dark) and vegetable sides… We would have happily made a meal of glazed roast beetroot and cauliflower and broccoli gratin!
We’ve since been back for coffee, lunch… and another Sunday roast! Muddy Beach is a new favourite place for us and we’re looking forward to making time for one of the cheese and wine evenings.
We love: the view and the sunny waterside terrace. And the gravy that comes with the roast was nothing short of exceptional

A vineyard, restaurant, orchard, wine bar and tasting room:
Cornish wine is making some noise and this is the latest jewel in the crown. Tables at the weekend go quickly, but don’t be put off if you can’t get one. Just head for the terrace on a sunny afternoon and make a booking for a repeat visit!
The vineyard is an amazing and inspiring story that we look forward to telling you next month. And the food in Appleton’s, the onsite restaurant run by the former head chef at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, is simple and delicious.
The menu is pared down so the ingredients have no choice but to speak for themselves. There are no fancy decoratives to hide behind or an orchestra of ingredients – this is glorious cooking at its very best and we love the menu for its bold simplicity.
For the second time in recent weeks we’ve spent a sunny hour or so outside on the terrace. And for that we recommend a glass of Harlyn (off-dry and crisp) along with the anchovy tapas – so good we’ve had it on both visits!
