The Halzephron Inn
Gunwalloe, Helston, TR12 7QB
Located in the picturesque fishing village of Gunwalloe, The Halzephron Inn is steeped in smuggling history and offers a first-rate dining experience. Renowned for its friendly and attentive staff as well as the excellent fare on offer, it’s no wonder the restaurant is award winning. Perched atop cliffs on the Lizard Peninsula, dramatic scenery surrounds the inn, so a seat by the windows or in the beer garden affords spectacular views year-round. Far enough removed from bustling towns and busy tourist traps to be tranquil, but handily located close to many of Cornwall’s attractions, this is the perfect spot in which to enjoy a meal out. Cream teas are served throughout the day, so peckish walkers can call in and refuel before heading off again. For a lighter bite or lunch, try the creamy Cornish seafood chowder, packed with freshly caught local produce. Those calling in for dinner will find chef Dave’s crabcakes with sweet chilli dip an irresistible starter. Follow perhaps with surf and turf fillet steak, topped with crayfish tails and served with crushed peas and hand-cut chips. Make sure to leave room for dessert before you leave. An extensive drinks menu is available to complement your meal, complete with Cornish specialities. Guests will leave feeling like old friends, as will their four-legged friends; The Halzephron is well known for welcoming dogs with well-behaved owners.
