Everyone needs to eat, and though there are plenty of options out there for the hungry Cornish traveller, not all are created equal. From rustic fish restaurants which go from sea to plate in a matter of hours to intricate British fusion cuisine served in Michelin starred restaurants, Cornwall is nothing if not amenable to the hungry foodie.

Sometimes, however, you want the rustic comforts and relaxed atmosphere that only a grastropub can offer. Thankfully, Cornwall has you covered there too. Here’s a selection of our favourite food-serving pubs in St Ives, Carbis Bay and beyond:

The Lifeboat Inn, St Ives

Family friendly, affordable and utterly delicious, the Lifeboat Inn is a stellar option for any hungry holidaymakers.

Located on Wharf Road, this pub looks out over the startlingly blue ocean off the coast of Cornwall and boasts a variety of foods, from the traditional fish and chips to more exotic fair from around the world. Vegan and gluten free-options are available, alongside a variety of craft ales, lagers and delightful local and international wines.

The Kings Arms, Marazion

Directly to the south of St Ives is the stunning seaside town of Marazion, which is itself home to a great museum that’s well worth a visit. Our attention, however, turns towards The Kings Arms. This quintessentially Cornish building plays host to a comfortable number of tables, and though it offers a range of foods, there’s nothing quite like its fish offering.

Warm and friendly, we’ve been known to recommend the Kings Arms to those who want a dining experience on the south coast, without enduring a long drive there and back. Our personal recommendation? Well, it’s hard to avoid the fresh mackerel when it’s on the menu!

The Sloop Inn, St Ives

Located not far from the Lifeboat Inn, The Sloop can be found on The Wharf and offers a delectable range of classic British grub, like steaks, seafood, roasts and pies, along with local favourites.

Known locally for its sumptuous deserts, The Sloop Inn boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and a ringing endorsement from the local community, who make regular use of the pub-turned-restaurant. It’s been described as ‘the perfect place to watch the world go by’, and we couldn’t agree more.

Cornish Arms, Hayle

Found a little further up the north coast than Carbis Bay, the Cornish Arms is about as Cornish as you can get. A charming historic exterior gives way to a relaxed and informal pub interior. Though primarily billed as a pub, it’s hard not to make a move to a table once you see the standard of food they serve up.

From British pub classics and Italian favourites to seaside delights, the Cornish Arms offers a little something for everyone. Best of all though? It’s a dog-friendly pub, so you don’t need to leave your little friend all alone.
