Mussel Box Main Menu

No frills or fuss, just simple, classic cooking using fresh and local ingredients to capture the true taste of Cornwall in a laidback environment.

Lunch is a super casual affair, run on a first come first served basis with no reservation required.  (However between mid-September until the end of May we do offer a Sunday lunch which is advisable to book.)

Grab a box of Padstow Estuary mussels to go, delivered twice daily by the boys from Rock Shellfish and available cooked in a variety of favourite flavours, or take a seat in our outdoor pod and check out our What’s Good daily specials board.

Lunch menu is served from 12-3pm and Dinner 6-9pm
