What they say:
” From day one our focus has been to deliver the very best kind of service – attentive yet relaxed – and all about you. Walk in from the historic harbour front to be met with a friendly welcome, buzzy atmosphere, and the smack of tempting aromas. Our plentiful plates and bountiful pours will thrill your tongue, while the setting and service will complete the experience to make it truly special.
We care deeply about origin of the produce we source. Our focus is on quality, freshness and sustainability and we have relationships with local farmers, fishmongers, bakers and food purveyors who share similar values. We work hard to ensure you’ll love the food, drinks and relaxed atmosphere at The Longstore in Charlestown. Visit us seven days a week for our evening menu. On Saturdays we open early for our brunch classics and lunch menu, and for lunch on Sundays, we serve our famous Longstore Roasts.
The hugely inspiring Crocadon is the epitome of ‘field to fork’, with the farm – which is run on regenerative principles – delivering much of the produce, and the rest sourced from similarly minded local suppliers.
Address: Crocadon Farm, St Mellion, Saltash PL12 6RL
21.3 miles from Boconnoc (38 mins)
How to book: email email@example.com
Supporting a ‘closed loop’ approach, Crocadon aim to source as much as possible from within their own estate. Vegetables, wheats and grains are grown on the farm, where they also rear their own animals for meat and dairy.
Butter, cheese and yoghurt are all produced in-house too, so that as little leaves or enters the farm as possible. These super-local ingredients in turn deliver a wonderful purity of flavour in seasonally influenced dishes, many of which are plant-based. After just a few months of being open, but years of work behind the scenes, Crocadon was awarded a Green MICHELIN Star for restaurants run by chefs who are committed to sustainable gastronomy 🍀
What they say:
We truly believe there is no future in gastronomy unless we make real change in our industry and focus on fixing the food and farming system. As custodians of this land, we are working to leave the soil in better health than we found it. The MICHELIN Green Star represents everything that’s good about what we’ve set out to achieve at Crocadon.

Andy is a self-taught chef, learning most of his skills from many amazing chefs he has had the pleasure to work with throughout his career, and gaining most of his passion from travelling the world (Italy particularly). Most recently, Andy’s CV has him as the former Head Chef of Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall, in that position for 9 years, and before that at the flagship restaurant Fifteen London.
Andy left Fifteen in February 2016 to start ‘Appleton’s at the Vineyard’, a huge leap of faith and his first venture on his own. Fast forward to today and having leapt again, this time into a new, bigger and more exciting restaurant which is all his! (well – his and the wifes!) they are settling in and loving their new home and look forward to welcoming you.
With exquisite dishes such as ‘Squid ink linguine, Cornish crab, zucchini, chilli, anchovy pangrattato‘ and ‘Amedei chocolate panna cotta with morello cherries‘, you’re certainly in for a treat at Appletons.

Head chef Ethan Friskney-Bryer says;
“Our menu changes daily, sometimes even during the day! Having that flexibility means we can work with the people we want to work with, such as the small-scale fishermen, producers and growers. Cooking sustainably is also important to the kitchen staff, with the restaurant practising nose-to-tail eating and no-wastage policies where possible.
“All of the fish comes from Cornwall… One of our chefs is a part time fisherman as well, so we’re able to use his catch too!” Featuring seasonal produce and under-loved species, such as pollock, megrim, spider crab (or Cornish king crab) and much more, the menu is an opportunity for visitors to try new species and for us to get creative.
