Harbour Views & Sensational Seafood at The Watch House St Mawes

Harbour Views & Sensational Seafood at The Watch House St Mawes

Perched at the edge of the waterfront in the heart of this quaint fishing village, The Watch House is adorned with Cornish charm. This seaside restaurant is stylishly simple with a generous dash of rustic charm, the perfect setting for an array of imaginative and aesthetic dishes.

Inspired by the locally sourced Cornish seafood on our doorstep, the staff at this elegant eatery are dedicated to producing local and seasonal delicacies. If you’re looking for a tasty home-grown treat, try the renowned Cornish lobster straight from St Mawes Bay! From Keralan Cod Curry to sumptuous Seafood Spaghetti, Scallops & Oysters, whatever fish you fancy there’s an abundance of choice!

In the mood for something meaty? The classic steak frites with garlic butter and house salad will be sure to satisfy your craving. Or if you’re feeling ambitious, take on the Surf & Turf by adding grilled tiger prawns to your steak dish. If you’re in the mood for a classic, try The Watch House Burger for a ‘meatilicious’ combo of dry aged beef mince patty, Da Bara brioche bun, burger sauce, streaky bacon and cheddar.

Be sure to leave enough room to sample the dessert menu, adorned with a heavenly list of decadent puddings to satisfy any sweet tooth. We recommend the delicate Tregothnan Earl Grey Panna Cotta, served with a strawberry compote and shortbread biscuit; it will have your taste buds in a frenzy! The drinks menu is rich with a varied selection of wine, so you’ll be sure to find the dream accompaniment to your dish.  

Feeling tempted? The Watch House is open Mon-Sun 12-3pm for Lunch & 6-9pm for Dinner.

Fancy a quick bite to eat with an outside sea view spot? Drop by the Watch Out take away window for delicious local Fish and Chips. With fish cooked in a homemade beer batter recipe and hand-cut double-cooked chips, how could you resist? The Takeaway is open Mon-Sun 12-3pm & 5-9pm.
