Went here on Easter Sunday with my family. They all had the roast but I had the steak and ale pie. It was brilliant. Perfectly cooked filling amazing pastry and rich gravy. Love it.

Thank you for taking the time to review Henlys! Bex's pies are some what of a legend around these parts! We do a pie night on a Thursday which is a pie & a pint for £11, it might be right up your street! We hope to welcome you again soon! More

We've dined (and wined!) here many times and have never gotten around to review this great restaurant. The food is faultless! Always beautiful, well presented, great selection, & fresh! As a very particular vegetarian, the chef is always really lovely and willing to make alterations for me. The staff are really friendly too. Will always return.

We went here on a Wednesday, which is steak night. Two steaks and a bottle of wine from £25 depending on what steak you choose. We had rib eye, with a bottle of Shiraz and it was lovely. Highly recommended.

Description
Eating in the bar offers simple classic food, such as Scotch eggs, Buttermilk chicken & avocado burger, Cornish steak sandwich, or a stunning Porthleven crab salad. Henlys serves an array of fresh, flavoursome dishes, from Seared Scallops sourced just up the road in Falmouth Bay, to delicious Pork Belly farmed right here on The Lizard Peninsula, not to mention the delicious Monkfish Curry adding a new Asian twist to the menu. Classic cocktails, local spirits and beers are served till late downstairs, where a team of expert mixologists are on hand to serve up anything from classic Mojitos to Henlys' own unique and tasty creations. Enjoy a relaxed lunch or dinner downstairs in the bar with friends or family or a more formal dining experience upstairs and watch your dish be prepared from the open kitchen. Henlys relaxed and friendly atmosphere is perfect for any occasion, from after work cocktails, dining with your family, or celebrating with friends.
