Eating at Trerice
The café in the barn serves a wide range of refreshments. Fancy something savoury? Choose from sandwiches, soups, pasties and other light snacks.
For a sweet treat, try one of the delicious seasonal bakes, which range from raspberry bakewell slices and homemade cookies, to chocolate brownies and flapjacks. A particular favourite at Trerice is the classic Cornish cream tea, which includes a fresh scone, jam and local clotted cream.
When the sun breaks through, take the opportunity to sit outside and take in the country air whilst you eat. Look out for local swallows that nest at Trerice.
