From fresh fish and chips overlooking the Atlantic Ocean to tantalising tacos and cheeseboards – indulge yourself in these mouth-watering options.
1. Breakfast from Basket
Basket has swiftly become our favourite place to grab breakfast. The coffee is absolutely incredible (you can even buy a bag to take home with you) and their homemade chai latte never fails to hit the spot (try it with a shot of espresso!). When it comes to the food, where to start?! The choice is always a tough one, with many scrumtptious sandwiches, filled croissants, warming bowls, showstopping cakes and lip-licking pastries. What’s more, the service always comes with a smile.
2. Fresh fish at The Fish House
Chef Paul Harwood opened The Fish House after cooking at Rick Stein’s for 14 years in Padstow. Overlooking Fistral Beach and just a stone’s throw from the sea, he serves up a variety of vibrant dishes inspired by his global travels. From spicy Indian fish curry to cod tempura, he uses locally caught fish and shell fish straight from Newquay harbour.
3. Pizza with a view at The Stable, Fistral Beach
Dinner at The Stable is always a great time! With its amazing atmosphere, mouth-watering menu, stunning beach views and cheery staff, The Stable offers you an incredible dining experience. Their organic sourdough is prepared fresh each morning before being hand-stretched and liberally topped with a delicious array of locally-sourced ingredients. Everything from starters to sides to salads to puddings is amazing and you’ll love the fun, laid back buzz.
4. Fish and chips at Rick Stein’s Fistral
No Cornish holiday is complete without fish and chips by the beach. Luckily, Newquay is home to Rick Stein’s Fistral. If you fancy a casual lunch or dinner, grab a takeaway fish and chips served with homemade tartare sauce. You can eat by the sea, or dine in the family-friendly restaurant.
5. Cheese boards & Charcuterie at The Bottle
When it comes to a night out, we just love working our way through a couple of bottles of wine and a scrumptious charcuterie board. If you fancy chatting the night away in good company with high-quality nibbles, The Bottle is a must. This new eatery doubles up as a deli and wine bar, right in the heart of central Newquay . The Bottle offers a sociable way of dining with cheese boards, charcuterie boards and various sharing dishes to choose from. The baked camembert is to die for, and they even offer a special vegan cheeseboard. The owners are passionate about wine, so choose your best bottle from the large variety of in-house wines.
