Mother’s Day: Cornwall Lunch Spots

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and with the huge amount of eateries in Cornwall offering Mother’s Day lunch and dinner, it’s hard to pick just the one for the occasion. Whether you’re looking for a cosy Sunday pub lunch, afternoon tea or healthy food and smoothies, there’s something in Cornwall for every kind of Mumma!

The HeRonn Inn, Malpas: Pub lunch by the water

Located on the outskirts of Truro, The Heronn Inn offers incredible views over the Truro and Tresillian river. Surrounded by outstanding natural beauty, the Heronn Inn serves freshly prepared, locally sourced food and their menu has carefully been created by their award-winning chef, Nick Hemming. Check out the specially designed Mother’s Day menu here.

Godolphin Arms, Marazion: Views over to St Michael’s Mount

Arguably one of the best restaurant views in Cornwall? Enjoy a delicious Sunday lunch at the Godolphin Arms whilst gazing out over the water to St Michael’s Mount. Either get cosy by a log burner or escape outside to their balcony if the sun is shining. The team at Godolphin Arms pride themselves on their sustainable, local and seasonal menu. Check out their Sunday menu here.

Looking for something different? Why not make your own flower bouquet at the Mother’s Day bouquet workshop taking place at the Godolphin Arms.

Lusty Glaze, Newquay: Live music on the beach

A personal favourite, Lusty Glaze is one of Cornwall’s most loved beach bar and restaurant. Located in Newquay, Lusty Glaze is home to live music, lazy lunches and seaside suppers. Either cosy up by the fire or sit on the terrace and soak up the sunshine. This Mother’s Day is no different - from 1pm you can enjoy local musician Adam Parfitt for laid back guitar music while you dine. For more info, click here.

The Gurnards Head, Zennor: Hidden gem

Located by some of Cornwall’s most dramatic coastline, The Gurnards Head is hidden away from any major towns but right by the Atlantic Ocean. Their fresh and seasonal menu changes every day according to what is brought to their back door or what their chefs feel is at its seasonal best. The pub is warmed up by log burners, but on sunnier days their enclosed garden is open for guests to enjoy.

Pedn Olva, St Ives: 30 feet above the sea

With the sea just 30 feet below Pedn Olva, it’s the perfect place to appreciate the views across to St Ives Harbour and Bay. I recently visited Pedn Olva for lunch and I was super impressed by the number of options on the menu, as well as the insane 360-degree view - we even spotted some seals! The menu offers locally sourced food - anything from seafood to lighter bites and Sunday lunches. Pedn Olva might just be my winner for this year’s Mother’s Day. For more info click here.

The Garden Kitchen, Falmouth: For casual dining and healthy food

A new restaurant to add to the list since the St Michael’s Hotel renovation in 2018. Hidden away in the hotel, The Garden Kitchen offers healthy and wholesome food with a Mediterranean influence. Sit back and relax taking in the views over the garden and Gylly beach whilst enjoying healthy smoothies, salads or fresh from the oven stone-baked pizzas. We know that mums sometimes like to try the health game, so the Garden Kitchen might be your best bet if that’s the case this Mother’s Day. For more info click here.

The Headland Hotel, Newquay: Afternoon tea by the sea

You can never go wrong with afternoon tea for Mother’s Day. Enjoy a charming and elegant selection of sandwiches, freshly baked cakes and tea in the Headland Hotel’s lounge bar or al-fresco on the sea view terrace. There’s also the option of swapping tea for champagne, and always be sure to book prior.
