The harbour has a life of its own, independent and self sufficient from nearby Penzance. The freshness of the fish is magnificent. We have never tasted such 'crumbling to the taste' fish. The chipshop and nearby restaurants serves a great range of fresh fish dishes. There is a value for money Chinese takeaway. We ate in the local Red Lion pub, the hamburgers are highly recommended. The B and B is run by Joy and her musician (chef) husband. Breakfast is freshly cooked and sets you up for the day. The B and B has a range of rooms, we stayed in room 6. Situated at the top of the next building, it is part of her house. Ensuite bathroom with shower, tea and coffee facilities and shower gel were provided in the room. We enjoyed our stay here, learning more about the workings of a busy fishing harbour. Be sure to visit the ice cream parlour, go to the lido, St Michael's Mount and pirate ship. Dogs are most welcome here. Joy's local knowledge enabled us to complete a comprehensive motor tour in three stages. Joy's help was invaluable. There is a cash machine at the co op, newspapers can be purchased from the bookshop hut, there is free parking 24/7 on the side roads opposite the park and all along Alexandra Road (TR184NE). Everything you need is walking distance. Immerse yourself into this welcoming fishing community.
