Eat & Drink
When planning your holiday, the local food and drink scene is often a deciding factor. And in this regard, Cornwall never disappoints. Brimming with traditional pubs, chic cafés, and exquisite restaurants serving locally sourced produce, it’s a haven for food lovers. Nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Coombe, The Barn and The Stable are perfectly positioned for you to explore this vibrant culinary landscape.
Both of these charming retreats are a short drive from a delightful selection of eateries in nearby Charlestown and Mevagissey. From quaint tea rooms serving traditional Cornish cream teas to bustling waterfront restaurants offering freshly-caught seafood, there is something for every palate. Indulge in a hearty Cornish pasty, savour a classic fish and chips, or discover the diverse flavours of a locally brewed Cornish ale.
Charlestown, with its well-preserved Georgian harbour, is home to several enticing dining options. Whether you’re seeking a cosy pub serving hearty traditional meals or a fine dining experience overlooking the historic tall ships, you’ll find a restaurant or café to suit your taste. Don’t miss out on sampling local specialities such as Cornish crab or scones laden with jam and clotted cream.
Mevagissey, a traditional fishing village, is another culinary delight. The harbour is dotted with a range of pubs and restaurants, many of which serve fresh seafood straight from the boats. The charm of dining in Mevagissey is not just in the food but in the atmosphere; the hustle and bustle of this active fishing harbour adds to the authenticity of the culinary experience.
After a day of gastronomic exploration, returning to the comfort of The Barn or The Stable is a pleasure in itself. The well-equipped kitchens in both cottages give you the freedom to whip up your own meals if you wish. Perhaps try recreating a local dish using fresh produce from a nearby farmer’s market?
A stay at The Barn or The Stable isn’t just about rest and relaxation – it’s about immersing yourself in the local culture. And in South Cornwall, food and drink are at the heart of that culture. So pack your appetite, and prepare for a culinary journey you won’t forget. We can’t wait to welcome you!
