The Cornish Hen Deli

We are a tiny Deli with a big heart in the middle of Penzance. We offer the best of Cornwall with a decent dose of Spanish and Italian products as well. Our tarts, cakes and pasties are made with love and fresh local produce and we love that the gluten free and vegan options are popular with all our customers. 

Our shelves are full of ingredients for you to use at home, for example the Navarico pulses, Spanish and Italian Olive Oils, Cornish Rapeseed Oil, the most amazing Ortiz tuna, sardines and anchovies, Cornish pilchards. There is also the too hard to resist shelves of chocolates – our favourite Cornish chocolates and a healthy dose of our favourite chocolate made from over the border and some from around the world.

We’re also the home of Penzance Gin, it has a smooth, earthy flavour with an exquisite after taste. A hint of citrus that runs along this amber nectar. It has just the right number of botanicals to give it a unique flavour and depth of its own.

Don’t forget we’re the home of hampers, so you can take a taste of the west home with you.




As soon as you walk in, the smell is amazing. They make everything on site and the counter in front has all these yummy things that you end up purchasing because they look so good. Great coffee here which you can take away too. Great selection of different items. Their homemade red onion marmalade, beetroot relish and piccalilli are a must buy. Worth every penny.”
