Pentyr Café

The café is conveniently located next to the main car park and toilets at Pentireglaze. It serves a range of hot and cold drinks, as well as light snacks. Stop for a freshly baked pasty, a sausage roll or a freshly made sandwich. Sweet treats are also available – choose from a range of cakes, biscuits and Cornish ice cream. Cornish cream teas are also on the menu.

Allergen information

Most of the food and drink served is prepared on site in our kitchen, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free.

If you have an allergy or intolerance and would like ingredient information about the food and drink served, please ask the staff, who will be happy to help.

Always check when you visit

Indoor and outdoor seating is available so ideal for whatever the weather. The restored barn retains many original features and a wood burning stove adds additional warmth over cooler days. There is also a small selection of second-hand books to browse and buy.

There are picnic tables in the courtyard as well as undercover seating in an additional open sided barn.

Picnics and play

If you’re bringing a picnic there’s plenty of options, including a delightful orchard, or venture out on to the clifftops where there are grassy spots to sit and enjoy the sea views.

You'll find the accessible, sensory orchard just across the road from the main car park and courtyard at Pentireglaze. It's perfect for play and picnics, with willow tunnels and picnic benches. There is also a nest swing (donated by the Quinnian Trust) and is suitable for anyone who can be lifted onto it.
