Perched high on the cliffs at Whitsand Bay on the stunning Rame Peninsular in South East Cornwall, The View is a modern and vibrant family restaurant. It`s simple style allows full appreciation of the breathtaking Rame head, The Eddystone lighthouse and views far west along the Cornish coastline to Goonhilly on The Lizard.

Matt and Rachel are now in their eighteenth year at The View; Matt cutting his ties with the world of fine dining for a relaxed approach, simple food cooked precisely.

The use of local suppliers and small producers ensure superb ingredients are utilised. The menu changes daily with a bias towards local fish and seafood in spring and summer; as the seasons cool meat and game start to feature.The style is simple and clean with an emphasis on the main ingredient.
