Cafe by day and Restaurant by night, the Old Cellars provides good food for anyone passing through or staying in Cadgwith. The service is quick - but the food is always of excellent quality. Marvellous fish and chips, crab sandwiches, or inventive evening meals. The atmosphere is delightful and eating out in the heart of the village is always a... More

Staying in Cadgwith and had lunch today in the courtyard of the Old Cellars. Food and service very good and the surrounding typically quaint Cornwall. May even be tempted to try a dessert next tome !

We were just mooching around Cadgwith and the specials on the board caught our eye and we decided to stay for lunch. We ate in the small courtyard which is a lovely setting on a sunny day. We were an extended family group of 8 and 5 of the six adults all really enjoyed our food. The 6th was just... More

Enjoyed a warm, friendly welcome - the light lunch with local beer was great. Located just at top of slipway so can view the sea and fishing boats..

Firstly, Cadgwith Cove is well worth a visit - it is picturesque beyond words. Soak up all that beauty, and then head for the lovely Old Cellars Restaurant. We sat in the stoned courtyard, which just oozes history - it used to be a fish processing yard I believe. Place orders at the bar, and they are delivered to your... More

Had excellent dinner here whilst staying in Cadgwith. I had been craving pizza and wasn't disappointed. Other half had seafood casserole which he said was excellent. Lots to choose from as specials board had at least 7 starters & mains as well as normal menu.

Stopped here for lunch and what a find... Lovely atmosphere and though it was only scrambled egg on toast, it was scrummy! Wasps caused a little setback but that is not the fault of the restaurant. Would return like a shot!

I stayed with friends in a well located cottage literally 15 yards away (Pebbles has fantastic reviews on Tripadvisor but needs extensive refurbishment in my opinion) so this pub/restaurant was a must visit. We dined here on one night and the food was acceptable - local really fresh fish cooked reasonably well - not cheap but OK. They only open... More

My partner and I visited this lovely restaurant in Cadgwith. We ordered the cream tea for two. A lovely waitress served us with warm scones, butter, lashings of strawberry jam and clotted cream. My partner had a latte but I opted for the English tea, Superb !!! Fortunately the restaurant is near to the coastal path so we were able... More

We set off on our first Holiday Walk to Cadgwith Cove, one and a quarter mile of some of the most beautiful scenary that this great nation of ours has to offer. And when we got to Cadgwith Cove we were not disappointed, what a lovely little Harbour Village ( I think that's the right term?). By the time we... More
