Best Hotels for Foodies in Cornwall

For some us a holiday isn’t a holiday unless we have the opportunity to treat ourselves to some fine food and drink. And I don’t blame you if you’re scrawling though hotel reviews waiting to see photos of the food and the restaurant. Especially when it comes to Cornish hotels. Now, thanks somewhat to Rick Stein, Cornwall is known for its food. Seafood is obviously dominant, but there are plenty of other locally sourced treasures on this menu of the best hotels for foodies in Cornwall.

Our Gurus have found a remote gastropub just up from Penzance which is definitely worth the walk to, a Michelin starred hideaway near Porscatho, a family friendly charmer in Rock and a luxurious, boutique-y, romantic treasure in Fowey.
