We used to love this place, but then they got greedy on their drinks prices especially the wine, and now we can never find it open. If this is a seasonal restaurant then why do they not tell anyone rather than wasting peoples time? I...More

It is an odd but disappointing reality that in England it is almost impossible to find a restaurant serving decent fresh, well cooked and presented seafood, bar smashing fish and chips, along our lovely coasts; and when it is offered, it is, sadly, too often...More

2nd weekend of the season and Perranporth was lively, but the Pavillion Boatshed was closed on both Saturday and Sunday - very disappointed as it had been recommended to us.

I didnt notice a children's menu. In the evening I would say not suitable as it has quite a grown up feeling and quite small. If in any doubt contact the restaurant as they were very helpful when I rang up.

We offer fresh local food served at the heart of Perranporth beachfront. Our unique open plan restaurant allows you to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner while over looking Perranporth beach. Whether it's a quick stop before wandering round the shops or a relaxing dinner, the Pavilion Boatshed Restaurant is the perfect space to sit and watch the world go by. We take inspiration from our stunning surroundings and work closely with nearby producers to use a selection of Cornish seafood, freshly grown vegetables and locally bred meat as our main ingredients to create the very best Cornish cuisine. All this paired with a variety of drinks ranging from Cornish ales to a fine selection of champagne.
