Cornwall is packed with great places to eat and drink, many of which are really family friendly. Whether you’re looking for a stunning beachside view or a traditional pub with a convenient play area for kids who can’t sit still, there’s something for everyone. Here are four of our Cornish favourites!
Rosevine, Nr Portscatho, Truro, Cornwall, TR2 5EW
We loved the Rosevine so much we’ve put it in our best of ‘where to stay’ and ‘where to eat’!! The gorgeous dining room has a stunning view over the gardens down to the sea. Despite having the feel of really classy dining, this is just the most relaxed place to eat with children. Fantastic food, simply cooked with fresh local ingredients, and great choice for the kids. Between courses our little ones popped off to play in the play room. This award winning restaurant is a real treat; wonderful food, perfect spot and total parental dining relaxation!

Godrevy Towans, Gwithien, Hayle, TR27 5ED
This beachside café, located on the National Trust car park at Godrevy Lighthouse, can get really busy in the school holidays but you should get to see it at its best on quieter spring days. Popular with families, the Godrevy café has great food besides a lovely beach. It’s set in a wooden chalet interior with loads of outdoor seating and a patio. Enjoy the fab food, spot the seals while relaxing on their lovely deck area then amble down to the beach. Perfect spring day!

The Blue Bar at Porthtowan
Beach Rd, East Cliff, Porthtowan, Cornwall, TR4 8AD
The Blue Bar is reckoned by those ‘in the know’ as being one of Cornwall’s top beach bars. It has incredible views of the waves from the big bay windows and simply excellent food. The Blue Bar boasts a daily changing menu which makes the most of seasonal and local produce. There’s a great selection of starters, mains, sandwiches, classic dishes and desserts. Or just enjoy a drink in the sunshine and watch the kids play in the sand dunes whilst you chill out; Cornish style!
