Two Cornwall restaurants have been included among the 100 best local ones as part of the Good Food Guide 2023.

The Greenhouse in St Keverne and The Rocket Store in Boscastle were included in the list which was made after months of nominations, inspections and deliberations.

The awards were created 13 years ago to "celebrate the places that are the beating heart of communities around Britain".

The website adds: "This year, we received more than 37,000 nominations from diners advocating their beloved local haunts. It turned out to be the strongest field of contenders we’ve ever seen.

"So, alongside our national and regional winners, we are recognising an extended list of venues offering brilliant, creative, personal hospitality in all corners of Britain."

The full top 100 can be seen on the Good Food Guide website here.

What does the Good Food Guide say about the Cornwall restaurants?

When discussing The Greenhouse, the Good Food Guide said: "Tucked away in tranquil St Keverne, not far from Helston, the Greenhouse fits neatly in among its neighbouring cottages.

"It's the kind of place that readers characterise as a 'gem', appreciating the intimate feel of the dining room and a host, Neil Woodward, who enjoys talking about food."

It is also well-received on Tripadvisor, earning a score of 5/5 from 332 reviews.

Much praise was given to the "larder of seasonal organic ingredients" that are turned into dishes "that draw inspiration from various global cuisines, with stunning results".

Seafood was described as their strong point, with Falmouth Bay scallops roasted on the half-shell with lemon, garlic and seaweed butter mentioned in particular.

It adds: "For main course, it might be butter-roasted monkfish in crab velouté with cockles and leeks, while the Asian theme resounds again for miso-roasted pork belly and anise-scented tenderloin with roasted beetroot and raisins."

When discussing The Rocket Store, the Good Food Guide said: "For such a diminutive building, the Rocket Store certainly makes a bold statement on Boscastle’s inner harbour wall."

It is also well-received on Tripadvisor, earning a score of 4.5/5 from 203 reviews.

Praise was given to the "short, daily changing blackboard menu" which offers a great variety of fish-led dishes.

These include charred scallops with seaweed butter as well as wild sea bass sashimi with fish sauce and Thai basil.

Larger plates range from Dover sole on the bone with spring onions and garlic to John Dory in lemongrass and lime-leaf butter.

It adds: "Desserts are just as captivating, especially an orange and caraway-seed chocolate pot with clotted cream (beautifully bitter and just the right side of sweet) and a deliciously tart passion fruit posset."
