Great Places to Eat

“Number 7” is tucked in the little hamlet of Tregowris. Just 1.6 miles away is the little town of St Keverne. St Keverne is blessed with some truly wonderful places to eat. These include welcoming local pubs, foodie-heaven award-winning eateries as well as local shops including a spar, butchers and a bakery. Larger supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Lidl) can be found 15 minutes drive away in Helston.

Three Tuns, St Keverne – 1.6 miles One of two lovely family pubs serving good quality traditional pub grub (Just 1.6 miles a 5-minute drive or 35 minute walk away). Dogs welcome on leads. Award-winning (trip advisor and Taste of the West). Popular with both locals and tourists alike. Very friendly staff, currently also providing a takeaway service.
The Greenhouse Cafe, St Keverne – 1.6 miles A truly magical find. 5 Star trip advisor reviews and Travellers choice award. Reasonably priced high-quality food. Its reputation precedes it- worth pre-booking as food lovers travel far to enjoy their organic local menu.
Fat Apples Cafe – 2.2 miles Dog friendly, award-winning cafe in Porthallow. An absolute gem of a spot (but do consider pre-booking). Not far from the beach at Porthallow, they’ll provide you with great food at reasonable prices. From breakfasts to salads and, delicious homemade cake and teas and coffees. They’ll even re-fill your thermos for you! Read the reviews on Google – they speak volumes!

The White Hart, St Keverne – 1.6 miles – Another welcoming local pub serving traditional pub food. Dog friendly and also offers a takeaway service. In the centre of St Keverne square. Great reviews. Another great option to enjoy the local hospitality.
The New Inn, Manaccan – 1.9 miles The New Inn is a quintessentially old fashioned British freehold pub nestling in the Cornish Village of Manaccan. Dog and family-friendly with a lovely little beer garden nestled into the hill. Was recently highlighted in the Weekend Telegraph as one of the ten best-rescued pubs nationally. Great reviews.
The Shipwrights Arms, Helford – 3.3 miles A short drive away is the beautiful village of Helford. Sitting on the banks of the Helford River is the child and dog-friendly Shipwrights Arms. Another welcoming magical spot with a lovely garden that slopes down to the river. Good home-cooked food, many local yachtsmen moor up and climb straight up into the garden! They often have special food or music nights.

“The food was fantastic – we ate in the beer garden which has direct waterfront access.
Our kids (and dog) spent the afternoon jumping off the quay.”

The Five Pilchards Inn – 2.2 miles Welcoming family and dog-friendly pub nestled in the lovely Porthallow. Offers good value pub food. Stands in a unique position just 50m from the mid-point marker of the South West Coastal Path. Great reviews describing this special spot.
The Old Lifeboat House Fish and Chips – Coverack Cove – 3.1 miles In our view, some of the best Fish and Chips in the area. Stunning views and great food- what’s not to love! The restaurant sits in the old lifeboat house. Located in the lovely harbour of Coverack, popular with locals and visitors alike. Eat-in or take away – sit on the sheltered harbour wall or enjoy the view across the bay. Not just Fish and Chips- great other options too- Certificate of Excellence from Tip Advisor.
Roskillys – 2.1 miles Visit the working farm that is home to the famous Ice Cream. Very dog and family-friendly with a lovely walk through to Godrevy Cove. They have a lovely shop with lots of local produce as well as the ability to meet the cows themselves and learn about the process that turns their milk into that magical ice cream.

Poldhu Beach Cove – 8.6 miles Fantastic Beach chafe – open 364 days a year. Amazing treats, light bites, breakfasts and more… not forgetting the legendary hot chocolates. Perfect after a day playing in the surf or after a wild winter walk. Great reviews.
New Yard Restaurant and the Pizza Barn at Trelowarren- 4.7 miles If you fancy a treat, the nearby country estate Trelowarren has a wonderful Walled Garden Spa and Ozone swimming pool, and the lovely New Yard Restaurant. In the Michelin Guide, a splendid restaurant with a relaxed feel, soft candlelight and a great menu of local seasonal produce. A lovely spot if you’d like to treat yourself.
Ann’s Pasties – 9.8 miles – Great proper “Cornish” pasties. There is one shop just near Sainsbury’s in Helston (follow the signs to the local recycling centre and you’ll see the Anne’s Pasties sign). In the Lizard, you’ll also spot the signs as you approach the village. Worth calling your order through in advance – they can get really busy.

Here is the founder Ann, central to her family business.


In addition to several of the local pubs offering takeaways, there are also a good range of nearby Indian and Chinese takeaways, as well as the legendary Sid’s Fish and Chip van.

If you fancy a quiet night in, Moon Bay in Gweek offer Chinese and English takeaway and delivery service. Great food and large portion sizes.

If you fancy Indian or Asian food, the Anglo Asia in Helston offer a restaurant service, takeaway or delivery to Tregowris (delivery charge applicable). Great reviews.

Rosevear’s Fish and Chip Van (Sid’s blue van) serves up the most fantastic fish and chips just down the road in St Keverne on a Friday evening (4pm – 8.30pm). Perfect to pick up on your Friday evening arrival to Number 7. He is also in Manaccan on a Tuesday (4.30-7.30pm) and in Gweek on a Wednesday (4.30-7.30pm). Lovely fish and chips from a local family business. Very family friendly – in fact, it seems he has a bit of a tradition to wrap visiting babies up in chip paper – after the obligatory cuddle of course!

This is just a small taster (pardon the pun) of so many wonderful local places to eat. Number 7 is surrounded by some utter gems.
