Ben's restaurant is super cool, dog-friendly and family friendly too. It is a big place perfect for chilling out whilst checking out the surf....
All eyes are turned to Sennen Cove beach, a sandy expanse of dramatic coast with the tide crashing in and out just below. The deck, perfect for balmy summer evenings, opens onto the rugged beach so it is pretty impossible not to get a good geek of salt water and a gulp of sea air!
Ben’s menu is coastally Cornish and locally sourced – inspired no doubt by his proximity to the sea. Visiting the restaurant is a must when in the wild west. Ben’s food is legendary. Having held a Michelin Star at his first restaurant (he sold the joint, so didn’t get to keep the star), launched the food at The Scarlet and led the way in all things piscatorial at the Tolcarne Inn, Newlyn this man knows his samphire from his seagrass.
Dishes include; Breaded Squid, Mussels steamed with Smoked Bacon and Thyme, and Fish Soup, while a small daily specials board gives the crew of chefs an opportunity to showcase the freshest fish landed locally at Newlyn and hyper-locally at Sennen. Fish isn’t the only dish of the day however, there is a pretty diverse menu with meat and veggie options on offer.
The walls inside the architectural masterpiece are decked with Newlyn School of Art work and mountain bikes top the wooden beams above. The place is naturally full of surf boards all combining to give diners a bit of a visual taste of the electric personality of Tunnicliffe.
Ben’s restaurant is super cool, dog-friendly and family-friendly too. It is a big place perfect for chilling out whilst checking out the surf, relaxing after a dog walk along the beach or wrapping up with hot chocs.
Throughout the summer every Friday and Saturday the much-loved BBQ on The Terrace. Think grilled seafood and ling burgers with the outside bar serving chilled wines, beers and cocktails. Throw in some lush live music and the epic view and really, it’s not worth missing.
