Formally a pilchard cellar harking back to the 1700’s The Old Cellars has been carefully converted into a working café with many of the original salty features lovingly preserved.
For Head Chef, Jack Stephens and his partner in crime Sophie Smith, The Old Cellars is part of his family history. His Great, Great Grandfather, Fred, used to press pilchards at the Old Cellars way back when.
With a sheltered courtyard decked with fab fairy lights and a quirky interior surrounding, eating at The Old Cellars has a fantastic atmosphere. Outside you can see the fishing boats on the slipway and hear the tide ebbing and flowing.
The food is good. Very good. Between us (PK &I) we devoured Pork Cheek Bubble & Squeak and Cadgwith Cove Crab – all food is sourced locally and when it comes to fish and shellfish you really couldn’t get any closer! We chased our starters with Roast Monkfish and Hake with really marvellous veggies and finished off with an excellent trio of Cornish Cheeses. The food was plentiful, super pleasing to my ‘always wear an elasticated waist to supper’ philosophy, and really fresh and beautiful.
Whilst we ventured down on a cold dark evening, The Old Cellars would be a perfect spot to indulge in a cream tea post coast path walk or proper Cadgwith Cove Crab Sangers at lunch. The pretty courtyard is a sheltered suntrap which makes it ideal for lunchtime vino…
Get down to Cadgwith for some proper good food and fun times by the sea.
