Eating at Gurnard's Head
Essential to the operation is a top-notch team in the kitchen, where there is an unusual attention to detail and to the quality of ingredients.
With the emphasis on relaxed informality, lunch and supper can be taken in either the bar or the restaurant, or during much of the summer, in the garden. Like its sister establishment, The Old Coastguard in nearby Mousehole, The Gurnard's Head has a superb wine list with the team’s generous pricing encouraging guests to drink better wines.
Some of the world’s most awe-inspiring coastline is right on the doorstep. Wander out of the back door and be on top of the cliffs in little more than five minutes. Stirring stuff, we promise. Zennor is just 5 minutes away from the beautiful St Ives and its award winning beaches. Try the South West Coast Path from Zennor to St Ives for jaw dropping views and brilliant coastline. There is a local church and many ancient cottages to walk around in the village.
