Places to Eat

Feasts fit for a pirate

Arrr! ‘Tis a pirate’s life for all who stop here. The Admiral Benbow is a traditional Cornish pub that claims to have been serving pirates, smugglers and rum since 1695. In addition to being a great place to eat and drink, it’s also a treasure trove of maritime artefacts, many of which were rescued from shipwrecks. Find out more here.
