Cornwall begins to wake from hibernation....

Posted on 6th February 2015 by Antony Voyle There have been 1 comment(s)


Despite being covered in a blanket of frost, this week has seen Cornwall start to emerge from its post-Christmas slumber, with many of the great hotels and restaurants in Cornwall opening their doors once more to customers. We've done a quick summary of the opening hours of some of our favourite places to eat, drink and stay.

  • The Scarlet Hotel, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall. This 'grown-ups' only hotel re-opened its doors on 30 January and is already up to full speed, With some brilliant offers, for both overnight stays and dining, throughout February, be sure to check them out. You can read more here.
  • The Bedruthan Steps Hotel, Mawgan Port, Cornwall, re-opened its doors on 30 January. A great hotel in a fantastic location. They've got some amazing offers on at the moment so be sure to check out their website here.
  • Outlaws Fish Kitchen, Port Isaac, Cornwall, will re-open on 13 February. Now a 1 star Michelin restaurant, you can enjoying stunning food with equally stunning views. You can read more here.
  • Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, Port Isaac, Cornwall. If you haven't heard, Nathan has ended a very successful 5 year run at St Enodoc and is moving Restaurant Nathan Outlaw to a new location in Port Isaac. They are already taking bookings for 4 March and you can read more about the new venture here.
  • Outlaws at St Enodoc, Rock, Cornwall. Nathan's more informal dining experience is still going at the St Enodoc hotel and they re-opened their doors on 30 January. You can get more details here.
  • Burgers & Fish, Padstow, Cornwall. A great venue that opened last year in the centre of Padstow. This one does what it says on the tin! Re-opens on 10 February. Click here for bookings and more details.
  • The St Tudy Inn, St Tudy, nr Wadebridge, Cornwall. This has recently opened under new management and is now being run by Emily Scott, previously of The Harbour Kitchen in Port Isaac. Like all great traditional pubs this place is open throughout the year but booking is recommended for their great food. You can find out more here.
  • The Boathouse, Fowey, Cornwall. This harbour side eatery runs as an Asian "Pop Up" restaurant throughout the winter, with 7 & 8 February as the last weekend you can experience some great Asian flavours. It will then be closed until 13 February, when it will re-open as the Italian Boathouse. Check out the menu and make your booking here.
  • Food for Thought, Fowey, Cornwall. The Boathouse's sister restaurant is as close to the sea as you can get without getting wet. It's closed until mid-March but you can read more about it here.
  • The Bistro, Fowey, Cornwall. Some great food served in a relaxed environment, perfect for people watching. The Bistro is open throughout the winter and bookings for their Sunday lunches are a must. Book here.
  • Fowey Hall Hotel, Fowey, Cornwall. Open all year round, this is a great destination for anyone looking to explore the south coast of Cornwall, stunning views of the Fowey Estuary complimented by great food and drink served in splendour. Find out more here.
  • Knightor Winery & Restaurant, Trethurgy, nr St Austell, Cornwall. We think this winery produces some of the best wine in Cornwall and they serve it up in their own restaurant set in the midst of their vineyard. They are pruning and bottling in January and February so it's worth a call in advance to see if they are open. Details can be found here.
  • Kingswood Bar & Restaurant, London Apprentice, nr St Austell, Cornwall. A great venue on the Pentewan/Mevagissey Road. It just re-opened on 30 January and is well worth a look if you're in the area. Click here to find out more.
  • Rose-in-Vale Hotel, Mithians, nr Truro, Cornwall. This lovely hotel is hidden away in a little village just outside Truro on the way to St Agnes. It re-opens on 6 February and is the perfect spot for an indulgent Sunday lunch or a relaxing break. You can read more about it here.
  • Meudon Hotel, Mawnan Smith, nr Falmouth, Cornwall. A stunning hotel with a great history. Serving great food, set in fabulous sub tropical gardens, this is a must. And you only have to wait until 28 February for your visit. You can read more about it here.
  • Porthmeor Beach Cafe, St Ives, Cornwall. One of the best views in Cornwall for enjoying a great range of food. You've even got the Tate Gallery if you fancy a bit of culture. You'll have to wait until the middle of March for this one to re-open though. More details here.
  • Porthminster Cafe, St Ives, Cornwall. Another of St Ives favourites with views out across the Atlantic. One for the true love in your life? As this spot re-opens on 14 February. More details for bookings and menus can be found here.
  • The Seafood Cafe, St Ives Cornwall. Cafe doesn't do this place justice. Open all year round you can choose your seafood straight from their fresh display and have it perfectly prepared for you. You can read more and see a sample menu here.
  • The Coldstreamer Inn, Gulval, Nr Penzance, Cornwall, is open throughout the winter. A traditional pub serving great food and wine, with bed and breakfast on site as well. Read more here.
  • The Tolcarne Inn, Newlyn, Cornwall. A perfect combination of local pub atmosphere serving stunning food, courtesy of Ben Tunnicliffe, this Newlyn land mark braves the elements all year round. Check out a sample menu and make a reservation here.
  • The Victoria Inn, Perranuthnoe, nr Penzance, Cornwall.  One of the oldest Inns in Cornwall. With a deserved reputation for great food, serving local and seasonal produce this destination of choice is open for bookings or just a great pint. Opening times are here.

If you're in the area all of these places are worth a visit, if not for an overnight stay, then to grab some food and take in the Cornish atmosphere. Plus most of them do some great wines!
