One of the best restaurants in this part of Cornwall, it is worth travelling out the way for. They do a great set lunch in winter, and the brown crab rarebit is well worth trying, as is the Gurnard if it is on the menu...More

Lovely cosy restaurant serving good food. I really loved the decor and country style. We both had braised beef which was delicious. My partner found his pigeon starter quite tough, but I enjoyed my fish cakes. The rice pudding dessert was probably the best dessert...More

Truly excellent meal with friends in a cosy setting. Well chosen and locally sourced ingredients imaginative cooking with skill and precision. Fish not surprisingly was spot on, but the venison was also perfect. Desserts especially the chocolate mousse and the banana parfait were to die...More

Three of us enjoyed an excellent two course lunch here in October. Deservedly, the food at the Gurnards Head has a high reputation. In our experience it has a unique ability to turn up unusual and interesting dishes side by side with reliable old favourites....More

The Gurnard���s Head is a fabulous old inn looking out to the Atlantic, round the corner from the farming hamlet of Treen. Just 500 yards from the dramatic coastline, isolated, but within 15 minutes of Penzance and St Ives, this handsome hideout ticks every conceivable box. The sunshine is brought inside in the brightly decorated, comfortable dining room serving fresh, unbeatably good food from a menu that changes according to the catch of the day. Though the emphasis is on ease and honest enjoyment, there���s nothing relaxed about the quality and attention to detail given to the food, drink and service. Lunch is chosen from a chalk board, while the evening introduces the la carte which usually features local steak and hazelnut-crusted Megrim Sole. The best seats are the window ones overlooking the fields and ocean beyond.
