Word travels quickly in a village as small as Mousehole, and that means everybody knows 2 Fore Street is THE place for fresh fish and a warm welcome. With a reputation for its friendly staff and gorgeous French-style cuisine, 2 Fore Street is the reviewers’ favourite when it comes to dining in the pretty little fishing village and it’s found right beside the harbour.
There’s a relaxed atmosphere throughout the bistro and if you visit on a warm day you can dine outside in the garden and enjoy the al fresco experience. The restaurant looks out over the harbour and Mount’s Bay, and the menu changes with the catch of the day so expect fresh fish that you’ll remember for months to come.
Described by the Good Cornwall Guide as “gloriously unpretentious”, 2 Fore Street’s specials tend to include fresh crab salad, homemade burgers and lemon sole fillets. The kitchen team source all ingredients locally whenever possible, so the bistro reflects the tastes of West Cornwall throughout its menu and serves it with a continental twist.
It’s worth booking a table in advance as 2 Fore Street is one of Mousehole’s best-loved eateries, and it’s the kind of place that people seek out for a quiet coffee on a Sunday morning as well as to tuck in to dinner after a busy day in the sun.
