  • Review: Dip & Dine at Una St Ives

    A serene eco resort on the edge of St Ives, with a beautiful spa and relaxed contemporary restaurant. And you don’t need to stay there to enjoy it.

  • The Longstore, Charlestown

    You had us at steaks and seafood! This Cornish harbour-side eatery was named ‘Best Restaurant’ in this year’s Muddy Awards. Here's why...

  • Woodfired Canteen Dish cafe St Agnes Cornwall

    Eat Here: Canteen, St Agnes

    At this laidback North Cornwall lunch spot, expect a simple menu, an amazing community feel and the best feed you've ever had for a fiver!

  • The Schooners, St Agnes

    This relaxed beachside restaurant has been revamped under new ownership. Expect small plates, big flavours and a killer sea view.

  • Eat Here: Samphire At The Headland Hotel

    A killer sea view, impeccable service and an exciting seasonal menu have won this Newquay eaterie 2 AA Rosettes – plus this year’s Muddy Award for best restaurant.

  • The Cornish Michelin Star Winners 2017

    Woop woop! If ever there was a call for pants of Bridget Jones-esque dimensions – this is it. Our county has done us proud with three Cornish restaurants receiving Michelin stars in the revered 2017 guide – strap me in and pass me my golden fork… it’s time to EAT! Yes folks, The Michelin Guide got very funky this year as results were […]

    • Muddy Eats: Ruin Beach Cafe, Tresco

      Well here’s a little gem I heard about back on the mainland. Rumour has it, The Ruin Beach Cafe at Old Grimsby on Tresco has a waiting list as long as your arm. Ok maybe not as long as my arm, but you’ll have to book at least a few days in advance in high season, […]

    • Muddy Eats: Hubbox, Truro

      I’ve had my beady little eye on Hubbox in Truro since they were nominated best casual dining in the Muddy Awards. Sadly, and now I’ve seen for myself, maybe unjustly so, they didn’t make the finals (hey competition was really stiff). I thought I’d try them out with a view to include them in a child […]

      • Muddy Eats: Prawn on the Lawn, Padstow

        Prawn on the Lawn was recommended by a girlfriend and I’m literally jubilant to have made its acquaintance. Nestled down Duke Street in Padstow is the restaurant cum fishmonger with a great London vibe going on. The first Prawn on the Lawn seafood bar opened in Islington a few years back but last spring, owners Katie and Rick decided to move […]

      • Muddy Eats: The Shore, Penzance

        If reports in the national press are true – that Penzance is emerging as the new gourmet capital of Cornwall – then Bruce Rennie deserves more than a nod for his part in that evolution. Bruce has a knock-out CV, previously head chef at the award winning Gurnard’s Head, he has chef’ed at some of the best restaurants  in the country, including Michelin starred Wishart’s in […]
