Welcome to The Square at Porthleven

Located in the heart of Porthleven and overlooking its picturesque harbour, The Square At Porthleven is the best place to sit, relax and enjoy the view.

The brasserie‑style menu, warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere make for a perfect venue at which to enjoy a chilled lunch, a lively dinner or even just coffee and cake. And during the summer, why not dine al‑fresco on our terrace whilst watching the boats come and go?

Our ethos is “local is best”, and the menu changes daily according to what is available; our crab is landed right here in Porthleven Harbour, our fish is from Newlyn, meats are sourced from Vivian Olds and Primrose Herd and we use a selection of local vegetable suppliers.

The new Square Deli and Ice Cream Emporium offers homemade seasonal flavoured ice creams, all made right on the premises, along with cheeses, charcuterie, olives and other foodie treats.

Stay at The Square

Our fully refurbished two‑bedroom flat above the restaurant is the perfect location to watch the village go about its day-to-day business.

The flat has a double bedroom, twin bedroom, shower room and an open-plan kitchen, living and dining room, with spectacular views over the harbour.

Everything is provided for you. From the TV with Freeview and DVD player in the lounge to the fully equipped kitchen, whatever you plan for the week, you will find everything at hand to help you enjoy yourself.

Enjoy the space and freedom in your own home‑from‑home. A cosy place to snuggle up in a winter storm and a cool retreat on a hot summer’s day.

Long walks along the harbour and surrounding beaches or trips to see the sights of South West Cornwall. Whatever your choice, Porthleven is a perfect place to start.
