About The Slipway

A former smugglers' hideaway, Port Isaac's The Slipway dates back to 1527, and having functioned as a seaside guest house and hotel since World War, it's now a café, bar and restaurant with rooms. Serving up crowd-pleasing dishes, which take inspiration from Cornwall's wonderful produce, The Slipway is a great spot for all occasions, whether you're looking for a sandwich and a drink at lunchtime or something more substantial in the evening. With stunning views of the historic fishing village's gorgeous port, The Slipway is a truly charming spot to come for food.

The Slipway was listed by the National Trust in 1969 due it being an architecturally and historically important building, meaning that it's retained much of its charm over the years. The café is based out on a gorgeous terrace, which overlooks the water, while the restaurant and bar is located indoors over two floors. When it comes to the interiors of the restaurant, high ceilings and exposed beams give the space a rustic feel while the large windows and pale colour scheme ensure the restaurant is always light and bright. Aa cast iron light fitting hangs from above and there's the odd framed picture on the wall.

Throughout the day a range of scones, cakes pastries and sandwiches are available alongside teas and coffees, whereas the evening sees a more formal menu served in the restaurant focused around local seafood. You can expect light bites on the menu such as crispy squid with lemon and dill mayo, and a goat's cheese salad with burnt apple puree, while main courses range from a selection of burgers to a traditional fish and chips with all the trimmings.

Choose from the range of Cornish beers and ciders on offer from the bar, as well as a choice of wines available by the bottle and glass.
