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

Olive Magazine

"If there’s a place to dive into local fish and seafood, this is it. Executive chef Nick Hodges is a Cornishman through and through, and consequently leverages the area’s natural larder to maximum effect."

Foodism Magazine

"A previous haunt of salty sea dogs and weary wanderers, The Greenbank has watched over Falmouth’s historic harbour for almost 400 years. And while its guests are now nomadic weekenders instead of weathered captains, Cornwall’s fleet of fishermen are still honoured in a menu swimming with the latest catch."

Food Magazine

"The place to be on a Saturday night in Falmouth. The team are simply the loveliest people. All local, all smiling, all giving you the impression they genuinely love being there — it makes such a difference to the experience."

Alice Tate, Flash Anthology

"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

"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

"The hotel’s restaurant is long and thin, taking full advantage of the wonderful view across the harbour which is mesmerising by day or by night."

Travels with Kat

"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."
