Feeling peckish? Read our guide to the best restaurants in Newquay
It’s always great to have a night off from the cooking. A holiday is the best time to enjoy a meal out and perhaps try something a little different. If you are staying at our holiday park in Newquay then check out our top recommendations for the best Newquay resturants, varying from budget to the top end dining experiences.
Famous for Fish
What: The Fish House Fistral
Where: Unit 5 International Surf Centre, Fistral beach, Headland road, Newquay, Cornwall TR71EW
How much: Prices start from £8.50 for starters and £17 for main courses on the main menu. Lunchtime fish and chips start from £12.
Paul Harwood’s Fish House is located right on Fistral Beach with stunning views over the coast. As the name suggests, this Newquay restaurant gains inspiration straight from the sea, using locally caught fish and shellfish, ensuring that all dishes are fresh and tasty. Recommendations include the crab and prawn linguini and the fresh scallops.
For an atmospheric lunch or dinner, head to the outside terrace to eat and admire the views. Blankets are provided to keep you warm if you want to watch the sun go down. Pre-booking is advisable.

The Aussie Influence
What: Bush Pepper
Where: 6 Fore Street, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7 1LN
How much: A tasty looking breakfast menu from £7 for the full Aussie / English full fried, lunchtime burgers and melts from £7 and evening mains from £14.
We suppose it’s only natural with their love of surfing that an Aussie should land in Newquay and open up his own restaurant. Bush Pepper is a contemporary Australian influenced restaurant in Newquay, using a mix of Australian and Cornwall’s finest ingredients to produce an array of dishes with a new twist.
The menu is not super long but thoughtful and varied – everything from steak to vegan options plus some specialist items such as Black Kangaroo for breakfast (blackened spiced kangaroo sausage patties). Pre-booking is recommended at peak times.
On the Beach
What: The Slope
Where: Great Western Beach, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7 2NE
Hailed as ‘casual dining on the coast’ The Slope takes its name from the hangout of Newquay’s inaugural surfers in the 1960s. Open just during the summer season from April, this bar gets great reviews.
The Slope serves up tasty gourmet burgers, sides, chips & more, along with beers from the excellent Sharp’s Brewery and locally roasted coffee. It’s the view that makes it, the huge internal windows and outdoor terrace providing a fabulous view overlooking the beach and sea.
The menu is short, simple but stylish, with a kids menu as well as gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options. This bar / restaurant in Newquay is also pet-friendly.
What: Wet Dog Pizza
Where: 80 Fore Street, Newquay, TR7 1EY
We love the name of this Newquay restaurant! The Wet Dog Pizza is a quirky little pizzeria tucked away on the way to the world famous Fistral beach. A small, independent place, it makes good, fresh pizza, both for humans and dogs! The restaurant is dog friendly inside and out and is also famous for it’s 20 inch pizza challenge…!
The Famous Restaurant
Where: On the Beach, Watergate Bay, Newquay
Prices: Kids lunch menu £9.50 for two courses, main adult courses from £15 and a delicious six course tasting menu at £58 per person
Overlooking the beach with exceptional views across Watergate Bay, the famous Fifteen restaurant by Jamie Oliver offers Italian influenced food from local produce and from Italy. All the profits from Fifteen Cornwall go to its registered charity, the Cornwall Food Foundation and together they manage Jamie Oliver’s award-winning Training Programme as well as other community food programmes run by the charity.
The food gets great reviews across all of social media and this Newquay restaurant is complimented for friendly staff, modest prices and spectacular views. Pre-booking is recommended!
