Description: Food served throughout the day Eating at the Godolphin Arms is a relaxed and informal affair and we offer an all-day menu to be enjoyed whatever the occasion or mood. Our food philosophy is simple; we want to provide freshly cooked food that tastes delicious, is beautifully presented and showcases the quality and seasonality of local Cornish produce. From hearty Cornish breakfasts to relaxed lunches and intimate dinners, our menu is inspired by living and working by the sea and produce grown and farmed locally. Fresh daily bakes of the most delicious desserts and cakes are also offered up, to be enjoyed alongside the perfect cappuccino or latte. Where to eat? Lots of natural, light bathed and restful spaces - all with far-reaching views out over Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount. Sit in the glass and zinc extension, with doors that open out for al fresco dining during the summer months. Celebrate with family or friends around the intimate Captain's Table that seats 9. On the lower deck, walk straight in off the beach to the colourful and chilled-out beach bar and dining area. Outside, the beach terrace remains a place to linger, absorb the astonishing views and simply watch the world go by.

The place has been outstandingly refurbished and really makes the most of the views for dinners. The food was well presented and delicious. We went on Sunday evening and we intend to go again before our weeks holiday is up. Prices seem to be in line with other local restaurants.

Great views , lovely furnishings , helpful staff , we really enjoyed our lunch here after a morning on St Michaels mount . The fish and chips were very good indeed and the mushy peas very unusual.

Some how, we managed to get to Marazion an hour too early for our meal at Ben's, so we thought we'd check out the newly refurbished Godolphin for a drink... wow, this place is beautiful, in a very natural and fresh way. The view over St Michael's Mount is obscenely beautiful, especially at sunset and the wonderful thing about this place, they don't take bookings (unless you are a resident in the hotel). Don't let that put you off, it's to your advantage, as we managed to slip into a sea view very easily as one couple left.

The cocktails are heavenly, I experienced two basins of Seabreezes and they were the perfect blend of sharp grapefruit and refreshing cranberry. The food coming out of the restaurant looked gorgeous, especially the beer battered cod - this was no ordinary cod, it was huge, juicy and I had to keep reminding myself I was going to be eating at the brilliant Ben's in 45 minutes !! Otherwise I'd have ordered too, I was so hungry from walking. The staff are immaculate and faultless, with a sense of humour too.

We have booked to stay over Christmas, we loved it that much and I am looking forward to reviewing that experience too :))

We had lunch here whilst staying nearby in our motorhome. We were welcomed by staff who were very helpful. Sat by window with fantastic views of St Michaels mount. I had smoked haddock chowder[£6] with a large chunk of very good quality bread,it was scrumscious. My partner had burger and chips which was also good. We returned one evening onto the outdoor terrace for a drink again with views to die for. It was busy and took some time for drinks to arrive ,very relaxing watching a young man frolicking in the sea with seaweed draped over his head.
We will definately return when in Cornwall again.
