Christmas Dinner in Cornwall

November 27th, 2019

The most wonderful time of the year is soon upon us! There’s something incredibly special about the togetherness that Christmas brings, and nothing shows this quite as much as the Christmas dinner. Probably the most famous meal of the year, this festive staple is a wonderful occasion, and what better place to spend it than with your loved ones on holiday in Cornwall?

Thankfully, there are many places here for you and your family or friends to enjoy a traditional Christmas meal in a beautiful setting. Here are some of our favourite spots that are serving great Christmas menus this year!


Bustopher Jones

Situated in the heart of Truro, this chic wine bar & restaurant is a touch of class in the busy area. Beautifully decorated with an authentic 40s vibe, it is a beautiful place to visit for anybody exploring the city.

As with many of Cornwall’s restaurants, Bustopher Jones’ menu takes inspiration from the incredible range of local ingredients available in The Westcountry. Bustopher Jones’ Christmas Eve Feast Night stars a sharing platter of local meats, served with dauphinoise potatoes, roasted root vegetables and truffled winter greens. Served in their authentic local atmosphere, this is an excellent choice at £45 per person, although spaces are running out fast!


County Arms

A classic country pub with a modern touch, the County Arms on the outskirts of Truro is the perfect place for families to spend the evening. Their warm atmosphere has made them a favourite with locals but their large country grounds, including a wonderful beer garden, means that there’s always a place to get comfortable.

The County Arms’ Christmas menu is popular with families, with children costing as little as £30 per person. Their traditional Christmas carvery comes with a choice of three local meats, a large selection of vegetables, pigs & blankets and gravy – what more could you want?!

Norway Inn

One of the area’s best-kept secrets, this historic pub sits in the village of Perranarworthal, between Truro and Falmouth. Dating back to the early 1800s, the Norway Inn is full of local charm, situated in the beautiful Cornish countryside next to the River Kennall.

Norway Inn offers a popular Christmas menu that offers slightly more variation than most setlists. A hearty mix of meat, fish and vegetarian options mean that there’s something for everyone, whether you’re looking for traditional classics or exploring new flavours. As with all Christmas menus, we urge you to book as quickly as possible because seats are limited!


The Greenbank

If you’re looking for stunning waterside views, you’ll struggle to find many as picturesque as at The Greenbank. Located on Falmouth Harbour, this historic building has been revitalised for the modern age, offering a cosy setting with award-winning food and drink. With a restaurant alongside contemporary and traditional pubs, there really is something for everyone here!

The beautiful setting and stunning food make The Greenbank’s Christmas Day lunch menu slightly dearer than others. However, you’re certainly getting value for money when you consider this excellent location! With an incredible range of luxury starters, mains and desserts, Christmas food at The Greenbank is not something you’re likely to forget.

Their Christmas Dinner Boxes come with everything you need for a family feast, perfect for you to enjoy your day in the comfort of your luxury holiday home!
