Port Navas Yacht Club, near Falmouth

Whether you are arriving on foot, by car or rowing your punt ashore from your sailing boat, Port Navas Yacht Club welcomes club members and visitors alike to enjoy an unparalleled setting for a delicate lunch, wholesome dinner or evening sundowner.

Located in the picture-postcard village of Port Navas, Port Navas Yacht Club perches on the edge of the enchanting Helford River. With ancient trees draping their knotted branches right over the water’s surface, Helford’s teal, emerald and chartreuse tones lend a truly magical backdrop. Spend some time exploring its luscious depths, dipping your toes in the crystal waters and revelling in the tranquillity, before arriving at the Yacht Club for some well-deserved refreshment.

Under the management of Nigel Logan and Mike Maguire, Port Navas Yacht Club’s bar and restaurant is a welcome place to sit, drink and eat. Catering for all needs, the restaurant’s menu is made up of great food and reasonable prices, and also includes vegetarian and gluten-free options. Comprising a modest selection of starters, mains and desserts, its uncomplicated offerings ensure more quality and less pomp – an appealing combination for those looking for hearty, honest food.

As well as serving meals, Port Navas Yacht Club also invites visitors to partake in the old-fashioned activity of simply popping in for a drink and a chat. With an integrated bar area and quirky hotchpotch of bar seats and barrels, you can pull up a pew and peruse the selection of drinks behind the counter. On a sunny day, you can take your bevvy outside and bask under the sunshine, watching as boats slowly make their way up and down the river.

With opening hours varying with the seasons, give the restaurant a call to book yourself a table. If you are coming in by boat, you can also look forward to the added luxury of washing salt-kissed bodies in the club’s showers before sitting down for your meal!
