When you’re on holiday in St Ives, eating out with kids doesn’t mean you’re limited to takeaway pasties or fish and chips on the beach. Thanks to the town’s burgeoning foodie scene beckoning even the youngest diners to tuck into fresh, local ingredients, there are plenty of restaurants where you can mix Sauvignon and seafood with family fun and fish fingers. Here are some of our favourites:

The Rum & Crab Shack

A meal at this nautical-themed eatery peering out to sea feels much like dining aboard a boat. And it’s not just a quirky joint to test your sea legs after a few rums, while pint-sized pirates raid treasure chests of toys. An extensive menu (with an emphasis on crab, of course) shows off sumptuous seafood landed by local fisherman, and includes ready-cracked crab claws and fish finger sarnies to entice kids to try fishy delights too.

Seafood Cafe

Although it’s not one of St Ives’ eateries that spills out onto the beach, time and time again the Seafood Café has proved to be one of the best family friendly restaurants in town. Here young diners can scoff lashings of Fisherman’s Pie and local Moomaid ice cream, while grown ups sip Prosecco and select locally-caught fish from the line-up on ice at the seafood counter.

Porthgwidden Cafe

Hidden in a white-sand cove at the foot of St Ives’ Island, this is the lesser-known little sister of the eminent Porthminster Café. A smaller, more relaxed version of its famous relative, here the best local ingredients are wrapped into dishes such as paella and moules marinière. As well as a kids’ menu and delicious cakes, its family-friendly credentials are boosted by nearby parking and outdoor seating overlooking the beautiful Blue Flag beach.

Blas Burgerworks

Passionate about good food and the environment, Blas serves mouth-watering burgers made from fresh Cornish ingredients. As well as the classic beef in a bun, there are innovative veggie options from blackbean burgers to halloumi stacks. Eat inside at reclaimed timber benches, or take your feast to the nearby beaches.

The Queens Hotel

If you’re looking for a cosy pub where dogs and kids are welcome, head to the Queens Hotel, where the blackboard is chalked daily with the best of what comes in from local fishermen and farmers. Good value, locally sourced pub grub is served up in a rustic, relaxed environment, where there’s room for dogs to flop by the fire and a simple menu served for those fussy little eaters too.
