Food and drink on the Lizard

Cornwall is now famous for it food and drink and not just due to the humble Cornish Pasty, although that is certainly its biggest player. Now the offerings include an array of produce including wines and beer, dairy produce, cheeses and of course fish and shellfish. There are also organic growers and producers who sell their goods via weekly food boxes.

Restaurant and catering outlets take full advantage of all the fantastic Cornish produce on offer and create the most wonderful dishes using fresh produce from their doorstep. As a consequence the standard of food that can be found in eateries is incredibly high and competition is full on! Many have taken there cheffing skills away from the standard restaurant and have created temporary affairs on beaches and out in the wild creating a truly unique culinary experience.

For those that would prefer not to cook but want to stay at their self catering home there are also private caterers and chefs available who can come and cook for you and your party according to your exacting requirements. Perfect for larger groups and celebratory occasions. Once again, these private chefs take full advantage of whats on offer locally and use the finest Cornish food and drink.

The Lizard Peninsula has many good restaurants and eateries whether these are a seaside cafe or a formal hotel restaurant they all aim to please and most do just that. Of course traditional fish and chip shops are also abundantly available!

The well stocked pubs feature beer from Cornish Breweries and even Cornish soft drinks and wines. The atmosphere is always good be it on a cozy winterly evening or a barmy summers day.
