Welcome to The Square at Porthleven

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

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

We like to welcome everyone to The Square At Porthleven, so dogs are allowed to relax on our terrace. We also offer a healthy children’s menu, where our chef has created some special offerings with our younger diners in mind.

Our ethos is “local is best”, and the menu changes daily according to what is available. All of our fish, shellfish, meats and vegetables are sourced from a selection of local suppliers. We also stock a variety of Cornish alcoholic and non‑alcoholic drinks.

Alongside the restaurant, The Square Deli and Ice Cream Emporium has a selection of delicious offerings to take away. Our ice creams are all made on the premises using only natural flavourings, and the flavours change seasonally. We also offer a takeaway service on sandwiches, salads, cakes and hot and cold drinks throughout the day. Looking for a tasty delight to treat yourself or someone special? We stock a great variety of cheeses, charcuterie, olives and other foodie gifts.
