A handy stop off if using Castle Drive. A nicely varied selection of snacks and drinks. We enjoyed a very good bacon buttie. Great views over Falmouth bay from site on road from Pendennis Head to Falmouth.

We love Falmouth front walking along looking at the quirky shops, seeing the boats and enjoying the wonderful views. Many businesses such as pubs and cafes have had recent revamps.
