Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
In the heart of Helston, Henlys Bar & Restaurant is run by a young, talented trio that focuses on fantastic cocktails and a great range of fresh, Cornish-inspired dishes. The team champions local produce, with scallops from Falmouth Bay, just up the road, and pork belly, which is farmed on the Lizard Peninsula.
Your dining experience is central to the team’s ethos, from the ingredients sourced to the ﬁrst-class table and bar service you’ll receive. To start, try the Newlyn crab salad with pickled cucumber, dill and lemon or plump for the salt and pepper squid with Asian salad and chilli and soy dressing. For a hearty British main the Cornish topside of beef, garlic and herb potatoes, seasonal vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy will not disappoint. Other options include a delicious vegetable or chicken passanda with rice and a poppadom, the Cornish garlic Yarg, leek and pepper loaf, and some fantastic daily specials. We would highly recommend that you save room for dessert, as the Baileys crème brûlée with clotted cream and the chocolate torte with honeycomb are both irresistible, as is the selection of Cornish cheeses with Miller’s Damsels biscuits. The bar is a great place to enjoy a delicious aperitif or after-dinner tipple. Henlys serves delicious cocktails and local Cornish gins such as Curio, which is best paired with Fever-Tree Mediterranean tonic and comes garnished with samphire, lime, sea salt and juniper – an unexpected delight.
