Lose yourself in this land’s ancient tongue and savour the flavours of a proper Cornish pasty in the beating heart of its true home; where feasting on hevva cake and gazing at the wild seas is but a stitch in the pattern of everyday life.

We try and make sure all our food is traditional, with modern twists, and we try and maintain our Cornish heritage as much as possible.

We make and produce things like Cornish pasties...quite a few of the guides who work at Geevor are ex-miners and they'll quite often radio up and say "anyone got a teddy oggy (pasty)?"
