Cornwall’s south coast will host a new seafood restaurant in Charlestown for 2022.
Charlestown Harbor World Heritage Historic Site is about to become home to enough exquisite places to meet friends over a bite to eat. Springtide has opened its doors for business, with a menu to dream of. Featuring fresh, seasonal and sustainable fish, lobsters and seafood sourced from the finest local produce
suppliers, the menu is complemented by a selection of cocktails.
Its opening spring menu – created by executive chefs Will Spurgeon and Matt Liddicoat – features seaside classics, family favorites and a selection of meat main dishes. Expect dishes such as Surf & Turf, Prawn Linguine Alfredo, New England Chowder, Mackerel Filet Burger, Banana Blossom ‘Fish’ and Chips – plus bites of sea bass, cockles and leftovers, and delicious sides, or extras to share, like Roast Broccolini with olive oil and Maldon sea salt, curry sauce and parmesan crisps with truffle aioli. All of this will be complemented by daily specials, decadent desserts, delicious cocktails and local beers, wines and spirits.
Overlooking the UNESCO-listed Georgian harbour, Springtide offers picturesque sea views from the outdoor terrace and a lively indoor restaurant. The building dates from the early 19th century and was originally a fish cellar, then used as a boathouse before being carefully restored. Now the interior reveals original character features, such as rustic wooden beams and exposed brickwork.
Melissa Marquis, co-owner of Harborside Hospitality’s Springtide Restaurant, says:
“It goes without saying that we are big foodies and love the fresh off the boat seasonal fish and seafood that our amazing local suppliers can provide – Springtide is a celebration of delicious Cornish produce, cooked with a twist. Mediterranean to offer menu quality, in a beautiful setting.It’s relaxed, unpretentious and has a fun atmosphere with friendly service and great food!”

Springtide is now open, Wednesday through Sunday for dinner from 5 p.m. and for lunch (12 p.m. to 3 p.m.) and dinner (from 5 p.m.) on Saturday and Sunday. Advance reservation is recommended.
