The Slipway, Port Isaac
Much appreciated by locals and regular visitors to the area, The Slipway's Restaurant has established its own unique reputation for the quality and value of its range of fresh fish and seafood. The Restaurant is built on two levels with wooden pillars and huge oak beams. The gallery has recently been restored to its original form and occupies three sides of what was the old cellar, whilst the ground level was, within living memory, a ships' chandlery. We are renowned for our menu which uses predominantly fresh Cornish fish, and the crab and lobster for which Port Isaac is so well known. The memorable quality of food, service and ambience is complemented with the very best wine from our well stocked cellar. Sharps local ales and a creative wine list compliment the lunch and dinner menus.
