Where to Eat and Drink in Gwithian and St Ives.
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat and drink in Gwithian, Hayle and St Ives.
Within a very short walk of our self catering holiday lets is the excellent Red River Inn. The Red River Inn has got a fantastic reputation for food and real ales and it’s the focal point of the village.
They do get very busy in the summer months so it’s worth booking in advance.
A few hundred metres further down the road is the Rockpool Bar & Grill and Godrevy Cafe which both sell good quality lunches and evening meals. Both are close to the beach and have large car parks nearby.
If you find yourself on the beach and in need of a reviving coffee and some home-made cakes then check out the Hungry Horsebox.
Heading into Hayle there are several pubs selling inexpensive meals as well as two Indian restaurants- the Balti King and Grameen Tandoori – a Chinese called Eastern Empire and an Italian – The Terrace.
The Salt Bar is another good place to eat and it’s also a lively bar on Saturday nights.
If it’s fish you’re after then St Ives is the place. There are far too many for me to list here but Porthminster Kitchen, Caffe Pasta and Seafood Cafe come highly recommended. If you really want to treat yourself then Porthminster Cafe is out of this world and the view from the dining room across the bay is worth the price in itself. There are several bars and pubs lining the harbour and Fore Street so just take your pick. They are all pretty good with Hub and the famous Sloop Inn being the pick of the bunch.
