The Cove at Maenporth Beach

Introduction

Recently taken over by acclaimed Michelin-star Chef, Michael Caines, The Cove at Maenporth provides laidback dining at its best, making the most of its beautiful beachfront location.

The relaxed beachside hideaway sits a stone’s throw from the hip town of Falmouth, south Cornwall, with views across to the tidal sands of Maenporth Beach, meaning that dining alfresco on the elevated terrace couldn’t get any dreamier.

Honing in on its unrivalled position, nestled above the golden sandy beach, the restaurant’s glass-fronted and open-air terrace, offers breathtaking views across the Roseland Heritage Coast, Pendennis Castle and St Anthony Lighthouse.

With a revamped kitchen and development of an entirely new menu, Michael adds a little culinary magic to a jaw-grabbing spot.

Expect a relaxed and informal approach with a flexible dining experience, serving morning coffee, lunch, afternoon snacks and dinner with menus designed to attract families, locals and tourists visiting the area, whilst championing the best of the Cornish Produce. Kick back to a backdrop of blues and savour the freshest locally sourced Cornish produce and ingredients, prepared with an unmistakable award-winning style.

Dine with your dog

The Glasshouse and outdoor terrace are available for our canine friends to enjoy.

On the menu

Menus range from informal dishes to enjoy by the sea, with flavoursome plates of freshest local produce, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as the full Michael Caines Signature dining experience for those special occasions.

Tuck into a scrape-the-plate-clean tasty brasserie-style à la carte menu, offering elevated beachside fare, including Honey roasted Cornish duck with caramelised onion puree and wild garlic and dishes from the Chargrill, including Whole Falmouth Bay sole with rosemary brown butter shrimp, parsley and capers.

Struggling to choose just one dish? Why not opt for a show-stopping experience with a six-course tasting menu (£80) for evening service, featuring Michael’s signature dishes, including Ballotine of quail with raisin vinaigrette and hazelnut mayonnaise, and Fillet of Phillip Warren’s beef chargrilled with horseradish and shallot confit, celeriac puree, mushrooms and red wine sauce.

Where to walk

Treat your salty sea dog to a beach-to-beach coastal route, stretching 1,7 miles from Swanpool beach to Maenporth. The route offers a brilliant jaunt for the winter months (October-Easter) when dogs are allowed to roam freely on both beaches.

What Partridge says

Lunch at the Cove was superb, an absolute nose-to-tail treat for us four-legs. The glasshouse is dog friendly during the day and night, offering an ideal spot with pawsome sea views. Ideal to cosy up at my humans heels and try some of Michael’s top-notch grub! Maenporth beach provides a great walkies spot, to either start or finish the day. Paws crossed we return soon!
