WELCOME TO THE SQUARE AT PORTHLEVEN

Located in the heart of the village and overlooking its picturesque harbour, The Square at Porthleven is a wonderful place to sit, relax and enjoy the view.

The brasserie-style menu, warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere make for a perfect setting at which to enjoy a chilled lunch, a relaxed dinner or even just coffee and cake. And on warmer days, why not dine al fresco on our partially covered terrace whilst watching the boats come and go?

We like to welcome everyone to The Square at Porthleven, so we offer a healthy children’s menu, where our chef has created some special offerings with our younger diners in mind.  We love dogs, and even though they are not allowed inside, they are very welcome to relax on our terrace.

Our ethos is local is best, and the menu changes daily according to what is available. All of our fish, shellfish, meats and vegetables are sourced from a selection of local suppliers. We also stock a variety of Cornish alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.  We must be doing something right as we have been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide of Great Britain and Ireland 2021.

Alongside the restaurant, The Square Deli and Ice Cream Emporium has a selection of delicious offerings to take away. Our ice creams are all made on the premises using only natural flavourings, and the flavours change seasonally.  Looking for a tasty delight to treat yourself or someone special? We stock a great variety of Cornish chocolate, fudge, gin and other foodie gifts including wine.  Some of these items are also available to click and collect from our new online shop, see below for details.

We aim to re-open (Government Guidelines allowing) on Monday 12th April for dining on our terrace.  We will be open from 10.30 for coffee and cakes.  Food will be served from 12.00, all afternoon and into the early evening.

We now have a heated awning covering part of our terrace and even though we hope to be able to open in most weather conditions, but as we are still in the hands of the weather gods.  Because of this, we won’t be taking bookings for our terrace but will operate on a first come, first served basis.  If you are not lucky enough to grab a table straight away, leave your number and have a wander around the town.  As soon as a table becomes available, we will give you call.

Alternatively, we will be offering ready to eat hot and cold take-aways from our deli (throughout the day and into the early evening).  There is no need to book in advance, you can either pop in or call on the day and we can give you a collection time or call you when it is ready.  The takeaway menu will be similar to the menu available on our terrace.

From 17th May, we are hoping to be able to open the inside restaurant and are already open to take bookings online.  Pop over to the ‘Book a Table’ section of this page.

COVID hasn’t disappeared and as such we are still adhering to the Government Guidelines.

We have carried out an extensive risk assessment, spaced out our tables (and removed some) inside and out, installed hand sanitiser units at each entrance and at various points throughout the building.   We offer table service only.  Each group is asked to register with NHS Test and Trace App (or we can take your details manually), all our team wear face coverings and customers are asked to wear face coverings when travelling through the restaurant to use the facilities.

It has been a long time coming but we sincerely hope we can re-open for good this time round and are very excited to welcome you back.
