Food & Drink

UPDATED 22nd MARCH 2020: It is with heavy hearts that The Greenbank will be temporarily closed for an initial period of three months. Safeguarding our team, guests, the local community, and our NHS has always been our number one priority, so after closing our food and beverage operations on 18th March, we feel that the time has now come to fully batten down the hatches. It is our duty to be part of the nationwide solution to stop the spread of Covid-19 and to protect each other. We will constantly review the situation and follow the UK government guidelines as they are announced over the coming weeks. Whilst we cannot confirm when the hotel will re-open, our reception team will be monitoring emails, but this could take up to 7 days for a response so please bear with us. Please email to discuss any bookings. Our full statement can be read here.

For the best places to eat in Falmouth, look no further. The Greenbank has three unique areas to dine in – the stunning Water’s Edge restaurant, our stylish bar, and the cosy Working Boat pub. They all have free parking and our private pontoons are also available to moor up on before cruising in…


The Water’s Edge Restaurant

Our two AA rosette-awarded, award-winning Water’s Edge restaurant offers relaxed and affordable fine dining. It serves breakfast every morning to our hotel guests, as well as being open until late for non-residents to enjoy our ‘all day every day’ dishes, decadent afternoon teas, Cornish cream teas, Sunday roasts and our seasonal evening menu.

Our Executive Chef Nick, Falmouth born and bred, heads up the kitchen team. He understands that our guests want to taste the view and it’s his job to do his best to deliver this! Perched perfectly on the harbour, you’ll find uninterrupted panoramics in the restaurant whatever the time of day.

The Water’s Edge Bar

The bar and terrace serve brunch, afternoon tea and our ‘all day every day’ menu until late. Perfect for lazy grazing with friends whilst whetting your appetite with our wine list or sipping on a homemade cocktail or two. Don’t miss our Friday cocktail night, where we’ll be shaking and stirring our favourite tipples (from just £10 for two.)

The Working Boat Pub

Downstairs, The Working Boat promises hearty favourites and local tipples. Est. 1876 and rebuilt in 2015, it is open daily from 10am – close. With an authentic atmosphere and nautical nods, it’s the perfect place to while away a few hours getting lost in that view. We’re dog-friendly and perfect for families, and our Sunday roasts are proving to be a big hit for Falmouth.

Head Chef Liam Humberstone creates seasonal menus that champion local produce, with a focus on Cornish seafood. Browse our weekly specials here.

And don’t miss all of our fabulous events held in our marquee on our private quay every Falmouth Week, including our charity feast night “Chefs on the Quay.”

"This well-fed town isn’t short of phenomenal vantage points, yet the views to be savoured over supper at the Water's Edge are arguably some of the best Falmouth has to offer."

Food Magazine

"Dining in The Water’s Edge restaurant is a hearty affair, with all produce sourced from the South West. Executive chef Nick Hodges attempts to highlight the very best of Cornish fare with his rustic fine dining."

The Telegraph

"A fixture on the town’s waterside since the 1700s. Expect spectacular views, cosy vibes and expert fish cooking."

Olive Magazine

"Executive chef Nick Hodges brings together a fusion-focused menu, with dishes like the baked flaky hake fillet with saffron, lemon and crab risotto and for vegetarians, the hearty homity pie with baby carrots, tenderstem brocolli and a delicious roasted onion puree."

The Independent

“Only the pull of some exceptionally good cooking and the most eye-catching of interiors can distract from natural spectacles such as a pair of handsome swans gliding upon sun-dappled waters.”
