Eat your fill and then stay the night.
Spring is finally here and there’s never been a better time to take a trip down to Torpoint!
We’re major foodies down here in Torpoint and there’s nothing we like more than a slap-up meal to sort us out at the end of the day. If you’re thinking of making the long trip down to see us here then you should think about booking a table at one of these restaurants before you set off. Whilst there are a wealth of decent takeaways that open late most nights, we also have a handful of cracking restaurants that you should really visit whilst you’re down with us.
These are our favourite Torpoint restaurants along with a comfy place to put your head down – once you’ve got your fill, that is:
There are very few restaurants in Cornwall that can rival the landscape afforded the aptly name View restaurant. This family-run establishment has been serving precisely cooked, locally sourced meals for the last fifteen years. Chef Matt Corner escaped the world of fine dining to set up his slice of seafood paradise; his restaurant is stylishly subtle, the meals are artfully prepared and the seafood is always fresh. Dinner courses start at around £20, or you can drop in for a fixed 3 course lunch from £18.
Book a couple of nights in at Rame Barton, just a half an hour walk from the restaurant. You can leave the car at this 18th Century farmhouse and stumble home with a torch in hand. Twin suites including breakfast start at £110 p/night.
The Devonport Inn
Renovated in 2010, this immensely popular local pub is ram-packed during the summer but they’re open all year round! Dawn and Jerome Leopold are the owners here and they run a tight ship. Hailing from Lorraine in France, Jerome takes local ingredients and puts a French twist on classic pub grub dishes. Kingsand is a truly picturesque corner of Torpoint and the al fresco dining areas of the Devonport make the most of the tranquillity, with plenty of tables offering gorgeous of the bay. Lunch meals start at £6, whilst mains for dinner are around the £15 mark.
Get the true locals experience by booking into the Westcroft Guesthouse for the weekend. This artfully decorated B&B is just down the road from the Devonport Inn and makes for a fantastic home from home. Room start at a very reasonable £90 p/night.
Pirates Galley Cafe
Keep it distinctly nautical (and affordable) by diving into the Pirates Galley Cafe for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This cosy nautically theme cafe is quintessentially Torpoint: humbly decorated with nice sea-faring touches and mismatching furniture. It’s an unfussy place that makes, amongst many other things, one of the most raved about kebabs in Cornwall. Should you wish to be lazy, you can even call in a food delivery and get this lovely grub delivered right to where you are. Get the much raved about Chicken Kebab for just £5.50.
There aren’t many Airbnb options in Torpoint but the aptly named Captains Quarter is one of them. For just £80 p/night you can stay aboard this converted boat. There’s plenty of room to relax in the cabin, which also has a couple of cosy leather seats to recline in after a day of exploring.
