Falmouth is awash with great dining options, from the smart seaside setup at The Cove in Maenporth to tucked-away treats like Verdant Seafood Bar or The Star and Garter. The choice can be dizzying but fear not – our Hannah is on hand to help.
Falmouth is popular for its Sea Shanty and Oyster Festival. One place I’ve had the pleasure of visiting is The Verdant Seafood bar. This beautiful shack serves Falmouth’s native oysters, between October and March, as well as plenty of other fresh fish, all year round! One quirk of this quaint little spot is the home brewed beer pairings. The perfect thirst quenching and belly rumbling remedy.
Take a stroll through Falmouth’s historic harbourside town and stop for a bite to eat. With all favourites catered for; you won’t go hungry. The Pennycomequick (an old Celtic name for Falmouth) is a hub of local and hearty home-cooked food including Chalk Stream Trout Fishcake, Ham & Proper Chips and Coconut Curry with Winter Roots. Dine in Pennycomequick and settle into a relaxed vibe and friendly staff - by the end of your meal you will be family!
After walking through the amazing gardens Falmouth has to offer, gazing at that coastline and being surrounded by subtropical trees, why not trick the tastebuds and head to Cribbs, Falmouth’s very own Caribbean restaurant. If you like Caribbean soul food, this is the place for you. You could even order a cocktail or two!
Here’s the hidden gem that I must share with you, if you keep it quiet…
Thai Orchard is situated in the old streets of Falmouth town and is our longest-established Thai restaurant. Set in a 16th century coach house, this is an Asian fusion restaurant that caters to all dietary needs with my favourite dish being Gaeng Khiew Waan, a green curry made with seasonal vegetables. The owner will be serving you throughout the evening, with the biggest smile on her face. The food is authentic and the service impeccable.
And as you roll home to the resort, why not try some cocktails? Kona is one of Falmouth’s best for unique cocktails and some light snacking. Located on the harbour front, stone’s throw from the water, you can sit outside next to a roaring fire or inside their Hawaiian paradise. “
