Description: Food served throughout the day Eating at the Godolphin Arms is a relaxed and informal affair and we offer an all-day menu to be enjoyed whatever the occasion or mood. Our food philosophy is simple; we want to provide freshly cooked food that tastes delicious, is beautifully presented and showcases the quality and seasonality of local Cornish produce. From hearty Cornish breakfasts to relaxed lunches and intimate dinners, our menu is inspired by living and working by the sea and produce grown and farmed locally. Fresh daily bakes of the most delicious desserts and cakes are also offered up, to be enjoyed alongside the perfect cappuccino or latte. Where to eat? Lots of natural, light bathed and restful spaces - all with far-reaching views out over Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount. Sit in the new glass and zinc extension, with doors that open out for al fresco dining during the summer months. Celebrate with family or friends around the intimate Captain's Table that seats 9 or alternatively, relax in our upper deck that has easy sofas, comfy chairs and a logburner. On the lower deck, walk straight in off the beach to the colourful and chilled-out beach bar and dining area. Outside, the beach terrace remains a place to linger, absorb the astonishing views and simply watch the world go by.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner on the evening before the Godolphin is due to close for refurbishment. Food was great, I had fish and chips and my husband had scampi and chips. Food was fresh and well cooked, portions are large so couldn't finish everything. Service was excellent.
We will miss the Godolphin during the 5 month closure while the refurbishment takes place. Can't wait to see how it looks afterwards!

Went for just a drink, sat outside at the back and looked at the views. We did not eat but the food looked good. The service was great nothing to much trouble.

“Fantastic pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

It's very rare that a pub gets everything right. Good food, good beer, friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere.The Godolphin does and couple that with what is possibly the most beautiful view from any pub in the world makes this place a MUST visit for a Marazion. It is also VERY dog friendly. Can't wait to go back and see it after the redevelopment is complete

“Could have been a great lunch ....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Stopped here for lunch on a busy Sunday, our second lunch visit to the Godolphin Arms. The staff were lovely and more than helpful, we were seated immediately even though it was very busy and the food would have afforded a higher rating as most of it was wonderful apart from one thing ... hubby had wild mushroom linguine which he said was absolutely delicious with a huge additional side portion of chips. I had the 8oz beef burger with chips which was very tasty and a lovely large portion however it was served with lettuce that had turned very brown and I found this very off putting. Would have preferred for it to have been left off the plate altogether than served in this state, in which case this review would have been a higher rating. Could have been a fabulous lunch but disappointed by the salad that was clearly not fresh. Would definitely give them another try as the location and views are superb.
