Rebellion Roasthouse comes to Charlestown

Having already taken the foodie scene by storm at Newquay and Pentwewan with its rebelliously smoky, roast-house flavours and moonshine menu – inspired by the era of prohibition in America – Rebellion is delighted to announce the unveiling of a brand-new restaurant in Charlestown.

Set to open on 6th December, just in time for Christmas, the menu in Charlestown will offer similar-style foods to the favourites on offer in Newquay and Pentewan, but with more of a focus on roasted chicken and the endless world of flavours that go with it. Diners will also be able to choose from a tempting list of Rebellion cocktails, enjoying it all in nautical surroundings that perfectly complement the restaurant’s historic village location.

With a menu that’s all about mouth-watering food and flavour, with plenty of veggie and vegan options to boot, Rebellion Roasthouse is one for the foodies, so be sure to pay visit!

What a year for Boscastle Farm Shop!

As we near the end of 2019, the team at Boscastle Farm Shop are looking back at what has been an incredible year.
