Update April 2022
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 21st Apr 2022
No changes
Some excellent pubs and restaurants around the Harbour
Written by robinkm | 17th Aug 2021
A few good eateries now around the harbour, Tapas, fish and the new Harbour Light pub, (St Austell). Molly's, Crab & Hammer, TJ's (evenings) - A fair choice for lunch or dinner.

I reviewed these notes in April of 2021. They've got a new pontoon for visiting boats on the East Quay but I'm not sure whether you'd dry out on it. Prices have gone up and note that the toilets are locked at night.

These notes were reviewed by Don in May 2016. We note that there is now a pontoon alongside the East wall for visiting boats. Tariffs have been increased.
