Cornwall is blessed with so beautiful views and amazing places to dine. The best of both worlds! Marazion is no different, with plenty to enjoy here on our doorstep.

That’s why we’ve created a list of the best places to eat in Marazion, so you can enjoy the best food the town has to offer.

In no particular order here's some of our top spots:

The Kings Arms

The Kings Arms

A friendly pub that provides a relaxing place to have a drink after a long day exploring everything Cornwall has to offer. It offers a selection of Cornish ales and sources its food locally; always cooked fresh.

A Cornish take on traditional pub food.

Godolphin Arms

Situated opposite St. Michael’s Mount the views of the bay don’t get much better. Seasonal food incorporating a catch of the day means every time you visit this restaurant there will be something new on the menu.

The freshly made food even extends to the rich and extravagant deserts, a restaurant that cannot be missed during your visit.

Ben's Cornish Kitchen

Ben's Cornish Kitchen

Named in the top 100 restaurants in the country, a Regional Restaurant of the Year winner and voted best restaurant by the Trencherman’s awards; what would you say if we told you the head chef has had NO formal training?

Well that’s the truth!

Head Chef Ben Prior has no official training but has over 20 years catering experience due to starting straight from school. His younger brother Toby operates as Sous Chef and specialises in preparing deserts whilst the pair’s Mother, Jayne is the glue that holds them together in the kitchen.

The front of house is staffed solely by Rob but the small venue and low staff hasn’t stopped this place being the talk of national newspapers.

High quality food, warm and intimate atmosphere, right on your doorstep in Marazion.

Copper Spoon

The Copper Spoon

The Copper Spoon is unique as it offers speciality coffee and local vegetarian food. Unlike the others on the list it is the Spoon is a café, not a restaurant, and is perfect for a bite to eat during the middle of the day.

In its own words the café offers ‘Seasonal, local vegetarian food to eat in or take away. Dogs and muddy boots welcome.’

Fire Engine

The Fire Engine

Under new management but already receiving excellent reviews the Fire Engine Inn combines a pub atmosphere with quality, freshly made food.

It houses an array of locally sourced drinks and the beer garden is an ideal location to soak up the remaining sun on a Cornish summer’s evening.

Fish and Chips

Fish & Chips!

If the weather is warm and you’d rather eat al-fresco one evening, why not venture along the West End and visit the Tudor Chippy.

Grab some traditional fish and chips and eat them on the beach. Sometimes the simplest option can be the best and there’s nothing quite like fish and chips with arguably the best sea view in Britain.
