Where to eat in Mevagissey, Cornwall

Cornwall is renowned for its sensational fish - some of the best in Europe in fact. Wonderful fish & chip shacks, timeless pubs and white-clothed restaurants shouldn't be too hard to find.

These are favourite spots for food in one of Cornwall's prettiest towns, Mevagissey.

Local fish… check.

Local beer and cider… check.

Friendly staff… check.

Situated right on the front of Mevagissey harbour, what more do I need to say?

Lighthouse Tearoom

A lovely little independently run tearoom in Mevagissey offering a wide variety of breakfast, brunch, and lunch options.

The owner is on-hand too and is very welcoming and friendly.

The salmon and cream cheese scones are an original twist on a classic not to be missed.

The Fishermen’s Chippy

Situated right next to the water, grab yourself a well-priced British classic and enjoy while watching harbour life go by.

Don’t forget to share some with the resident harbour cat too.

Quay Bakery (for pasties) in Fowey

By far the best pasty I’ve ever eaten, stuffed to the brim with chunky innards.

This little independent bakery serves all manner of tasty goods: meat, veggie and sweet options available.

Brown Sugar in Fowey

A quaint little coffee shop right in the centre of Fowey. The best coffee we had while in Cornwall. Food options also available.

The Longstore in Charlestown

Perfect for taking a break after your kayaking adventure. We went for lunch and were treated to some excellent food and coffee, while upstairs also offering a large restaurant area if you fancy heading there in the evening.

Additional suggestions

St Austell Brewery

Take a tour and try some of the best beers Cornwall has to offer.

The Eden Project

Explore some of the world’s most intriguing biomes preserved under two huge insta-worthy domes.

Mevagissey Museum

A small but jam-packed little place full of fascinating history about the local area.

For football lovers, keep an eye out for a pic of a very famous Brazilian footballer who visited back in the 80s.

The Fountain Inn

A proper little fisherman’s pub. With low ceilings and crooked wooden stalls. You won’t get a better traditional and ‘preserved in time’ pub experience than this place.

Teacup Tearooms

Another highly rated tearoom in Mevagissey. Unfortunately, this was one place we didn’t make it to, but came well recommended in the guest book of our Airbnb.
