Good local food and beer

Tasty food, good service from young waitresses. Wine list is extremely small, but there are a number of local beers from which to choose. Meal was served in good time. We shared an entree and did not have dessert.

I'm staying here for a week with my family. The place is in amazing position, the staff is very friendly, the atmosphere of the pub is nice, and the food was just delicious.

We went to the Boatshed (which is in Penzance, not the Scilly Isles!) and found the experience really quite poor. To start, the able top as sticky, and when ordering drinks, the waitress explained that they had run out of green beans so could only offer frozen peas as a substitute. We ordered anyway. When the food arrived, a lot... More

Went for an evening meal to Boatshed cafe after a day trip to Scilly Island.The waitresses were cheerful and attenitive. Order Sea Bass fillets with sweet chilli sauce and garlic butter. the preparation was simple and neat and full of flavors. Just the ideal fresh tastes of sea after a long ferry trip across rough Celtic sea.

Our favourite place to eat in Penzance. Informal but intimate, a lovely menu and suitable for groups of all ages and sizes. Love the tandoori prawn starter especially! Highly recommended. 😻

We were a party of 6 adults and 3 small children out for Sunday lunch. We were made very welcome and although the service was quite slow the food and the atmosphere was really good and we all enjoyed a substantial tasty meal.

Ate at the Boatshed last Sunday with my husband. I had the mussels and he had a burger. Food was delicious! Service with a smile and lovely atmosphere.

We came to this restaurant for an evening meal and it was a good choice. We arrived just as it was opening and the staff that served us were both friendly and knowledgeable about the fish dishes. I had the goat’s cheese starter which was absolutely delicious. I decided to go with the fish and chips and the batter was... More

Came here for an evening meal by chance and were very glad we did. From the minute we walked in (with our 18month old) we were made to feel very welcome and at ease. Nothing was too much trouble - the service was excellent. To eat, both my husband and I chose the tandoori prawns to start and seabass fillets... More
