St Ives and around - with coeliac dad !

willowan | Jun 4, 2010 02:07 PM

Dear all

Staying part way between Penzance and St Ives for a week in mid/late July

Top recs welcome for lunch or dinner, especially for fresh and reasonably priced fish/seafood. As my dad is coeliac we need places which genuinely do fresh food and have a flexible attitude, ideally.

Some recs I have had from a friend, for St. Ives

Porthgwidden beach cafe
Saltwater ( ? on Fish St. ? )
Portminster Beach cafe,

.....and a bit further out

Tinners Arms , Zennor

2 Fore Street, Mousehole

Was also considering a trip up to one of the Stein places in Padstow but have had iffy feedback re value - likewise with Fifteen near Newquay - any thoughts ?

Is it safe to assume that Penzance remains a culinary desert ? ( had one of my worst meals of all time there in an Italian place about 10 years ago !)

Finally am looking to break the drive down overnight somewhere en route from Liverpool - a friend has suggested Taunton area - any recs on good places to stay and eat in that area, where they will be happy to cater for coeliac dad ?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give
