Popular towns such as St Ives and Falmouth offer a brilliant range of places to eat, but explore off the beaten track and you’ll find some fantastic restaurants serving delicious, locally sourced food.
Take a look at some of our staff recommendations and taste for yourself!
Indaba – Swanpool, Falmouth
Indaba Fish and Seafood Restaurant sits near Swanpool beach in Falmouth. Serving reasonably priced and quality Cornish seafood, Indaba caught the attention of our head holiday-coordinator Michelle when she attended there late last year, “Indaba serves quality Cornish seafood where you can enjoy the most amazing outlook over Swanpool beach and the sea”.
The menu is extremely varied with starters or light dishes, a main menu and a dedicated seafood menu which offers fresh crab and lobster from Indaba’s very own tank! If you’re not into seafood there’s an offering of duck and steak as well as vegetarian options such as butternut squash ravoli and pearl barley risotto.
The perfect dining out experience for any occasion.
The Gurnard’s Head – Nr Zennor, St Ives
With a rather unassuming exterior, the Gurnard’s Head is living proof that looks really are deceiving. Walk inside and you will find a cosy pub with log fire, serving local ales and a range of brilliant wines, perfect for a romantic evening out.
Walk from the pub through to the restaurant and you’ll be delighted with the menu, serving a very select, but not limited, range of dishes.
A small group from Aspects spent a delightful afternoon at the Gurnard’s Head in October on a staff outing and Karen from our accounts department speaks for all of us when she says, “The Gurnard’s Head delivers a menu unlike any I’ve seen before and the food is truly delicious – I’d definitely return!”

The Halzephron Inn – Gunwalloe, Helston
The Halzephron Inn boasts a classic menu with a Cornish twist, including meals such as ‘Betty Stoggs Beer Battered Fish of the day’ and ‘Homemade beef burger topped with smoked bacon, rocket and Cornish Yarg cheese’. With a locally sourced menu and homemade desserts such as a mouth-watering Chocolate Amaretto Truffle Torte, the Halzephron Inn offers a true taste sensation.
Aspects Property Manager, Amanda says, “With its ambient lighting, unobtrusive but friendly service and fabulous food, the Halzephron Inn ticks all the boxes for a delicious meal for a romantic dinner or special occasion.”

The Victoria Inn – Perranuthnoe, Penzance
You only have to look to their website homepage to know that The Victoria Inn serves only the best dishes. The interior décor reflects their philosophy of serving simple, local and quality meals, and as Jennie Smith, Founder of Aspects can reaffirm, “The Victoria Inn has the feeling and style of a warm traditional Cornish pub while serving amazing, award-winning food.”
The Victoria Inn has an outside area for eating and drinking as well as a cosy bar with open fire. If you prefer to dine away from the bar, you can walk through to the restaurant where you can enjoy a more formal and romantic meal.
