Eating out in Polperro

Eating Out

Polperro benefits from many High Quality Pubs and Restaurants, specialising in locally-caught fish dishes and traditional homemade English food. Below is a list of our favourites, all within a short easy walk from the Hotel.

Advance Booking is essential for all of the local Restaurants as they are very popular with locals and tourists alike and can book up months in advance during the summer / autumn season. 

The majority of the Pubs do not offer advance bookings but during busy time periods many of them offer a waiting list service for a table. Please also be aware that many of the Pubs have limited indoor seating and so during bad weather there may be a longer wait than usual for a table. We currently advise heading out for an evening pub meal no later than 6pm to ensure you can get on their waiting list for the evening. 

Please check out their website or facebook page for menus, prices, and more information as to any precautionary Covid-19 Measures.
