The lively yet casual Boatshed is all about fresh flavours and seafood. This traditional, historic wharfside building benefits from a prime location on the harbourside in Penzance. The decor is cosy, and the atmosphere convivial and relaxing. One huge mast extends down the length of the whole restaurant. Beneath the ancient timbers of the restaurant, bargains were transacted by the masters of Neapolitan brigs from Rio, and homeward-bound East Indiamen. The enthusiastic team here values fresh seafood, such as sea bass, Cornish megrim and pilchards, and local brill, all sourced as locally as possible. Make sure you try the turbot on a bed of mash with lemon and coriander marinade and samphire, or the Cornish seafood special in coconut and sweet chilli sauce – always a firm favourite. The innovative kitchen team also puts the charcoal grill to good use, giving great flavour to top-quality sirloin steaks and tuna. For contemporary food in a wonderful location, Boatshed is the perfect choice.
