There are some great places to eat in St Mawes and the local area – but here are our top pics…
No-one wants to have to slave over a hot stove on holiday, so here is a perfect day of delicious treats that we can heartily recommend.
Breakfast in St Mawes
Well it has to be Da Bara Bakery under the Ship and Castle Hotel in the centre of the village. They serve delicious home made bread and a mouth-watering array of breakfast specials from a Full English breakfast (of course) to yummy Avocado Smash with bacon. There are lots of vegan options too. You can eat in or take out – but eating in is great fun. You meet people, catch up with friends and dogs are welcome.
Lunch in St Mawes
Depends how hungry you are. We often queue up for the amazing freshly cooked Cornish Pasties at St Mawes Bakery. Each fresh batch sells out very fast so be prepared to pre-order and chat to people in the queue while you wait. Or if you fancy a barbeque on the beach, go to St Mawes Butchery (in the little side road opposite the Bakery). Neil and Debbie specialise in barbeque treats from tasty kebabs to home made sausages and burgers. They have some great locally produced meat and cheeses and other local goodies too. Or if you fancy travelling a short distance, the Hidden Hut above Porthcurnick Beach in Portscatho is a firm favourite. Incredibly delicious local produce all cooked on open stoves al fresco. Bring your own wine or beer for the perfect beach-side lunch.
Pre-dinner drinks in St Mawes
There is no better place on a warm summer evening than the glorious terrace of the St Mawes Sailing Club.
Dinner in St Mawes
Well you’re spoilt for choice in St Mawes for your evening meal. There’s everything from the gourmet delights of The Idle Rocks and Tresanton (with its wonderful terrace bar views) to The Watch Out for take-away Fish and Chips. But our firm favourite is the Victory Inn. It has a great menu with everything from classics like Cod and Chips to local caught specials and exotic curries. Catch up with the locals in the old bar while you wait for your food and don’t forget to save some room for their yummy deserts too.
So there you have it, a selection of our favourite places to eat in St Mawes and the surrounding area. We hope this has given you some food for thought.
