The Best Places to Eat in Hayle

Fresh Cornish air, life in the great outdoors and busy days exploring all part of a holiday with

us at Calloose and all guaranteed to work up an appetite! It’s a good job then that Cornwall

boasts an outstanding food and drink scene from the humble pasty to fresh-off-the-boat

seafood and locally brewed ales. We are lucky enough to have numerous eateries on our

doorstep so here’s our pick of the best places to eat in Hayle;

Philps Bakery

For the best pasties in town head to Philps bakery located on East Quay in Hayle. This

particular bakery is their HQ and the family have been making delicious pasties here since

1995. There is a good sized car park here but it tends to fill up fairly quickly with queues

often stretching down the quayside as the mouth watering smell of freshly baked pasties

wafts down the wind. Choose from traditional Cornish or specialty pasties as well as sausage

rolls, pizzas, quiches and sandwiches made to orders as well as a varied selection of

tempting treats. For a taste of Cornwall whenever you like, buy a box to take home with


Traditional Fish and Chips

A stalwart of British seaside holidays, traditional fish and chips don’t come much fresher

than in Cornwall. For the freshest fish and good size portions (apart from our own Fish & Chip shop on site at Calloose) we recommend a visit to the aptly-named Chandler’s Plaice, a family-run business serving a selection of fried fish, chicken, pies, sausages, burgers and chips. Watching your waistline? Give their steamed cod a try, a flavoursome alternative. All hot food is cooked fresh and must be taken away.

Sweet Treats

Once named the best ice-cream parlour in Britain, Mr B’s really does take some beating.

Their artisan ice-cream is made seven days a week in their shop right in the centre of Hayle

using the finest locally-sourced Cornish and Italian ingredients. Purists can enjoy the classic

Vanilla and Strawberry or Chocolate flavour whilst those feeling a little wilder may treat

their tastebuds to Dutch Apple Crumble or Triple Choc Chunk Fudge Chunk Choc Ripple – a

real sugar hit! They also offer a refreshing selection of sorbets too as well as sauces, waffles

and other eat-in desserts. A perfect sweet-treat to round off any day.

Evenings Out

Take the night off from cooking and head into Hayle town where you will be rewarded with

a selection of places to dine. The Salt Kitchen can be found tucked under the viaduct where

guests can feast on fresh seafood, local meats, cocktails and more. Offering an Italian slant

on flavour, The Terrace is a more casual, classic bistro serving fresh fish, Cornish grown veg,

and locally farmed meats. Choose from pizzas to pasta dishes, vegetarian and vegan

specialities along with classic burgers, dogs are welcome too.

The Cornish Arms

Pitching themselves as providing a home from home experience, The Cornish Arms in Hayle

combine artistic creativity with running a traditional pub. Menu’s include classic favourites

alongside Canadian delicacies and delicious treats. The beers are cold, cocktails colourful,

food fresh oh and dogs are welcome too. We also recommend trying their quirky new

venture, The Kraken, an outdoor kitchen and bar with a pirate twist – a sunken ship exterior

with covered seating for rainy days. A well-stocked bar, burgers and pizzas can be enjoyed

on-site or taken back to your caravan where you can cosy up together.

These are just a handful of some of the fabulous places to eat in Hayle. The town is also

home to local pubs, cafés, takeaways and more with several other favourites slightly further
