2 Fore Street, Mousehole
2 Fore Street has, quite rightly, built up a fantastic reputation for serving up seriously good, super local, food. Gloriously unpretentious, the restaurant sits at right angles to the harbour, happily monopolising quite possibly the best views in Mousehole.

When staying in one of our holiday cottages in Mousehole you simply must try out 2 Fore Street restaurant. It started life, long-ago, as the village stores, in fact it's a stone's throw from our beautiful retreat,The Old Stores, and once upon a time they used to be one. Without a doubt, the best seats to secure are those nestled within the original plump shop windows. Airy and bright; the whitewashed floorboards, wooden tables and contemporary local artwork give the place a simple understated seaside-chic feel. With the brightly coloured boats bobbing back-and-forth in the harbour and views on a good day stretching right across Mounts Bay to the Lizard, it really is a rather special spot.
Raymond Blanc trained chef and owner Joe, has consistently served-up beautifully executed, yet refreshingly straightforward dishes since he opened in 2007. There is strong emphasis on all things fishy (with saltwater practically lapping at the doorstep, this should come as no surprise) but Joe caters with aplomb for meat eaters and veggies alike.
Whilst the fish almost swim into the kitchen themselves, the rest of the produce is all locally sourced with meat coming from organic and award winning butchers Vivian Olds over in St Just.
The menu changes daily largely depending on the days catch. Whenever the sun is shining, the south facing courtyard garden is the perfect spot for an open Newlyn crab sandwich or simply a coffee and a large slice of cake whilst you watch the world go by, very slowly.
