Got to visit…

Hooked on the rocks

Overlooking Swanpool Beach and Falmouth Bay, Hooked on the Rocks is only a short walk from Falmouth Town with views to Pendennis castle and St Anthony’s lighthouse. Whether you’re soaking up some rays, or storm watching, this wonderful beachside bistro offers an impressive backdrop to your dining experience.

The restaurant sources the majority of its seafood and shellfish from the local Newlyn market; the freshest produce reflected in the diverse menu. For the casual eaters, there’s an exciting tapas menu, perfect if you want a light bite or to create the ultimate sharing feast. The menu offers a wide range of fish dishes, with meat and vegetarian options too along with a ‘specials’ board making the very most of seasonal locally sourced produce. The signature platters are a great way to try the local shellfish, with the choice of adding a crab or lobster (caught within nine miles of the restaurant) from the in-house tank. For Sunday Lunch, enjoy a serving of the Hooked roast with all the trimmings; this has gained an avid following, so make sure you book ahead!

Hooked on the Rocks is great for a morning coffee in the sun, a long and lazy al fresco lunch, or the perfect way to end a hard day out and about.
