In the heart of old Falmouth on the High Street at the harbour’s edge, the award-winning Victorian Star and Garter is said to be the best foodie gastro pub in the south-west.
These days, we want to know the provenance of our food. Here, you have fish direct from the Newlyn boat, meat direct from the farm and butchered locally, artisan local food suppliers, and chefs who love cooking over an open fire.
Passionate about their ingredients, the chefs in this quirky but smart pub, use high-quality ‘nose-to-tail’ cuts of meat, meaning no waste but also some more unusual offerings. A global wine list, world class whiskies and rums galore complement the food beautifully.
The menu changes almost daily and is never boring. It’s such a gorgeously characterful place, too, dating from 1892, with views over the harbour not to be missed.
