The Tolcarne Inn is a historic maritime pub, nestled next to the sea wall in Newlyn – one of the UK’s most important fishing ports.

Chef and restaurateur Ben Tunnicliffe has created an irresistible dining destination for seafood lovers, where a chalkboard menu evolves to reflect seasonal abundance.

The catch of the day is served alongside fresh produce sourced from small local growers; Ben’s ethos is to combine flavours simply and instinctively, letting the quality of the ingredients speak for themselves.

With a friendly welcomed guaranteed, well-kept local ales and ciders, and regular live jazz sessions, The Tolcarne Inn is a relaxed setting in which to enjoy Cornwall’s famous food culture at its very best.

We set out to create the kind of place that we would want to visit ourselves, time and again. That means great food, in unpretentious surroundings, with friendly service.

We hope you’ll pay us a visit soon.
