The Restaurant is built on two levels with wooden pillars and huge oak beams. The gallery has recently been restored to its original form and occupies three sides of what was the old cellar, whilst the ground level was, within living memory, a ships' chandlery. The menu uses predominantly fresh Cornish fish, and the crab and lobster for which Port Isaac is so well known.
Sharps local ales and a creative wine list compliment the lunch and dinner menus. The Slipway is mentioned in several guides and publications, The Which Guide to Good Hotels, The Good Pub Guide, The Rough Guide to Cornwall and a member of Cornish Accredited Restaurants.
