Three great laid back restaurants in Falmouth

Just down the road from The Valley’s luxury cottages in Cornwall is Falmouth, a beautiful fishing port and town with winding cobbled streets and pretty little alleyways weaving their way down hills towards the town centre.

It’s a great place to visit when you’re in Cornwall, with something for almost everyone – including blue flag beaches, shops, tea rooms and more.

One of the things Falmouth does really well is food – so we thought we’d look at three of our favourite chilled out restaurants in the town, where you can taste quality food without having to worry about being underdressed.

Hooked on the Rocks

Hooked is perfect for lazy lunches, decadent dinners and sublime shellfish. 

Just a quick walk away from the bustle of Falmouth town, the restaurant is all about beautiful, relaxed and fun dining experiences. It overlooks the stunning Swanpool Beach and offers views across Falmouth estuary, over to Pendennis Castle and St Anthony’s Lighthouse.

It’s a spectacular setting whatever the weather, and that view is complemented by brilliant Cornish seafood and shellfish.

Hooked also has a sister restaurant in Truro, so anyone staying at The Valley is in the perfect place to pick either.

The Shack

The Shack is based in bustling Events Square, smack bang in the middle of Falmouth, meaning you’re not far from the action when you choose to dine there.

The rustic shellfish bar uses the very best ingredients from its more formal sister restaurant, The Shed, and offers relaxed dining in an unrivalled atmosphere.

Eating at The Shack is fun and hands on, as diners get involved in the restaurant’s sociable, fun and hands-on approach to shellfish.


Hunkydory is slightly more formal than The Shack and Hooked, but it still manages to retain a relaxed and friendly atmosphere – in fact, the entire town has that atmosphere!

Its menu has a well balanced mix of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, all of which are prepared fresh and cooked to order.

The restaurant also puts on daily specials using seasonal food and freshly caught fish – in fact, you can often find out what the restaurants specials are before going there, by asking fisherman in the harbour what they’ve caught that day!
