GRAB A PASTY IN FALMOUTH
Piping hot, golden pastry and a signature crimp, there’s nothing quite like a Cornish pasty on a cold day. Whether you’re a lover of the classic steak, partial to a cheese and onion or like experimenting with the more quirky fillings – there are plenty of hot spots in Falmouth to tuck into this local delicacy. We’ve written a guide to the best pasty-munching locations in Falmouth.
Rugged coastline, rolling waves and historic castles, Pendennis Point has plenty of charming views for enjoying a pasty in Falmouth. If you’re driving, park up on a rainy day and sink your teeth into a hot pasty from the comfort of your car and admire the panoramic views. If you don’t want crumbs in your car, head outside and embrace al fresco food. Our favourite vantage point is from the stone window of Little Dennis, where you can watch the boats bob on by and see St Mawes across the water.
PRINCE OF WALES PIER
A central point to enjoy a pasty in Falmouth, Prince of Wales Pier is a mere minute walk from some of the town’s most-loved pasty shops. Stroll across the pier, pick a bench and watch the world go by. A popular point to catch a ferry, why not hop aboard for a day out somewhere. Just watch out for seagulls swooping down and trying to sneak a bite!
QUEEN MARY GARDENS
On a brighter day, we’d recommend enjoying some autumn sunshine at Queen Mary Gardens. Surrounded in bright blooms, Monterey pines and sub-tropical plant life, these gorgeous gardens are metres away from Gyllyngvase Beach.
Grab your pasty and drive to Maenporth Beach for some top Cornish cuisine at the seaside. If you don’t drive, you could opt for the scenic route and take a walk along the Swanpool to Maenporth coastal path, chomping on your pasty along the way.
THE GREENBANK GARDENS
Head down to our neck of the woods and pitch up at The Greenbank Gardens for views across the harbour to Flushing. The best part about this spot for a pasty? You can pop by The Working Boat pub and wash it down with a quick pint of local beer.
