The golden swatch of Porthminster Beach is an extraordinary backdrop to dining and drinking at any time of day from our restaurant, bar and terrace with views in the heart of St Ives that are hard to beat. Seafood is a speciality, and from this spot, you’ll be able to see the fishermen at work who supply the kitchen.
Tall windows make the most of those jaw-dropping views as we serve up seasonally inspired dishes, packed full of flavour. Designed by our Executive Chef Director, John Pollard, the Harbour Kitchen, Bar & Terrace is the perfect choice for lovers of seafood and the health-conscious alike. Celebrating the very best in Cornish flavour, our chefs work with local suppliers and producers to build menus that reflect the changing moods and climates of Cornwall. Look out for our extensive event programme throughout the summer, which includes live music and BBQs on our terrace.
In the bar, perch yourself at the marble countertop or take a window seat as you recount the day’s adventures as the sun goes down over the horizon. Sample an English wine from Cornwall’s very own vineyards or if craft beers, artisan spirits and seasonal cocktails are more your thing, then our drinks list will leave you feeling cool and refreshed.
Open in spring and summer, our new Pizza Shack, Bar & Terrace has panoramic views of Porthminster Beach and out to sea that are hard to beat. On the menu, pizzas take centre stage. They're freshly made with Exec Chef John Pollard’s own dough recipe, topped with the finest Cornish ingredients and stone-baked to perfection. For seafood lovers, the signature pizza is mouth-wateringly good… lashings of local crab, crayfish and mussels, drizzled in a lobster aioli.
Walks ins welcome, no booking necessary. Open in spring and summer only.
We’ve taken the classic Cornish treat and elevated it to new heights above Porthminster Beach. Indulge in our superb sandwiches, moreish scones just ready to be smothered with lashings of jam and cream and delicate sweet delights. By the way, there’s no debate here – it’s jam, then cream – but you’ll have to make your own decision on whether you’ll add on a tempting glass of Champagne.
