The Pier House Restaurant

The Pier House Hotel and Restaurant in St Austell Cornwall is situated on the picturesque harbour of Charlestown with stunning views of the port and coastline of St Austell bay.

Reviewed By Gaijinette

Charlestown is not short on restaurants, but this is the only one that has stood its ground and remained fairly traditional while catering to minority tastes and allergies (as you have to these days). Hipsters with deep wallets head for the Longstore up the road. I hear it's very good but I was entertaining elderly parents who wanted something a bit more trad. Trad is what you get at the Pier House - scampi and chips, fish pie, steak and ale pie etc., but they also do banana blossom 'plant-based' fish 'n' chips etc., so going for a nice balance. My mum loved her fish pie (although alas none of it was local), my dad was happy with his 'small' scampi and chips (definitely enough for a main-sized meal), and I shared a main of mussels in white wine and cream which was huge: hard to believe it was a main for one. I normally only order side salads for a shot of fibre and nutrition, and never expect them to be interesting. But not only was this side salad HUGE, but it was nicely dressed with a sweetish balsamic-based dressing and included nice surprises like cress. The chips that came with the mussels were delicious: crisp and fresh. Servers were very helpful and friendly, and the atmosphere (in the back room at least) was cosy and relaxing. All in all, a very nice experience for my whole family. Well done Pier House!Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your meals whilst on your recent visit with us. We look forward to welcoming you back in future!

An informal bistro style dining experience on the outskirts of St austell, serving amazingly fresh local fish & shell fish, meltingly tender Cornish steaks and interesting European dishes. We look forward to welcoming you...

Reviewed By 664RachelH

A group of 13, mixed ages including children, plus some vegans and some vegetarians met up for an evening meal. We were not the only large group but service was excellent. The Kingswood is willing to be flexible on menu choice, understands that children can’t always wait, and has a great atmosphere. All food was excellent, taste, texture and temperature. Great choice of drinks too. Service is friendly and prompt but never hurried. The only problem is that they don’t have green tea available as an option. But overall, a definite 10/10.

Popped in here for lunch whilst shopping in St Austell. It was very quiet, only another two couples or so in.We ordered our food and drink, all of which arrived very quickly.I had the chicken, bacon, lettuce and mayo sandwich on granary. It was absolutely lovely! May sound strange to rave about a sandwich but it was the best one I’d had in a loooong time...if not ever! My partner had the grilled pulled pork and cheese toastie which he said was delicious.The coffee was fab too. Service was swift and the young lad behind the counter was polite and helpful. A hidden gem. Definitely worth a visit, can highly recommend!

The Longstore Steaks & Seafood

Steakhouse and seafood restaurant located near the beautiful Charlestown harbour.

Reviewed By AnitaTraveller1

It's been just over a year since we had dinner at The Longstore on our wedding day so whilst we were passing through Charlestown we thought we'd pop back in. Same great attentive service, our French waitress was excellent. Crab and avocado salad was amazing and the hake was excellent. If you get a table by the window you do get a glimpse of the harbour and sea. Just wish the restaurant was a little closer to home!

Reviewed By O F

Authentic, characterful village pub with a varied menu. The service was prompt and friendly.Our party had a ploughmans, brisket burnt ends, filthy fries and a chicken roll. The brisket was obscenely tasty. The filthy fries were just vast. All our party staggered away complaining of tight clothes and an urgent need to sleep. Thoroughly recommended Superb! Come back and try our lovely Sunday Roast or maybe a tasty breakfast on a Friday or Saturday morning from 7.30-10am. Don't for get we have lots coming up as we approach winter, we have some great music this weekend, won't be long and we will all be singing carols in the bar on the 22nd December! Check out our lovely special Christmas menu too - its available to book from 1st December right through until 21st!

Reviewed By Mintyburble

Very Informative. Lots of things the same as all brewing but the great thing about visiting different breweries is that they all have their own histories, differing displays and mainly different beers. I would definitely recommend. I tried a lot of different ales that I would’ve otherwise not been able to as I don’t live here in Cornwall and they are not available to me at home.

After a wander round the village and quayside and museum, we were feeling peckish having driven past Charlie’s we decided to go back up the road and try it out. We each had panini min with mozzarella, bacon and sun blush tomatoes, my wife goats cheese and sun blush to,stones. Both were excellent. One double espresso and a cup of tea with the bill at £16. Well worth it. Great ambience and well served.Thank you for the lovely feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to us at Charlie's and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Edie's Kitchen

A fabulous, reasonably priced, family-run restaurant in Carlyon Bay, Cornwall catering to every taste. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Reviewed By JuMark0601

Just returned to our hotel having taken an early dinner at Edie’s. We popped in to book this morning & was met with a welcome, cheery smile and chat. Returned this evening to a beautiful atmosphere. We were sat at Table 12, it has a view of the chef, Nigel and his extremely caring and efficient team. The feeling of calm was palpable and appeared to work like a well oiled machine. The waitresses were young, knowledgeable and very friendly without being familiar. The menu is not extensive, but beautifully put together to suit even the most discerning tastes. In addition to that, there are daily specials. We had the pigeon to start and choose the pan fried hake and the neck of lamb as mains. The quality of presentation is superb but overshadowed by the wonderful tastes on our plates! I didn’t want the meal to end. Unusually, we had dessert, the blackberry soufflé with lemon sorbet and a treacle tart with clotted cream and salted caramel. The whole meal was exemplary. I can honestly say that it equalled a meal we had in the summer at a Michelin Star restaurant for a birthday celebration. We urge you to book and visit this wonderful little restaurant and enjoy possibly one of the best meals you’ll have in a while. Fine dining without taking a mortgage out!
