Fish direct from the boat. Meat from the farm, butchered, cured and smoked by us. World class whiskies. Rums galore. Harbour views, singing the blues.

Welcome to the Star and Garter, in the heart of Falmouth. 


Sunday Roast

Sunday lunch is sacrosanct. That's why, here at the Star & Garter, we take it extremely seriously indeed.  Whether it’s moorland aged rump of beef, a luscious leg of lamb or some proper roast pork with the best crackling you can imagine, all our meat is supplied by renowned Cornish butcher Phillip Warren and served with crispy duck fat roasties, monster Yorkies, silky gravy and a selection of local, seasonal veg. So come in and while away the afternoon in front of the fire, enjoy the view over the bay and, well, tuck in.

Our roast is served 12-3pm and 6pm - 9pm. 



The Star & Garter, sat on the water's edge of Falmouth harbour offers three beautiful apartments. Marrying the heritage nautical theme of the pub below, the Penthouse, Crow's Nest and Starboard all have huge bay windows with sweeping views of the harbour. Guests can now enjoy the full Star & Garter experience, and that could mean waking up and nipping downstairs after a good night's sleep for a coffee or even a cheeky Bloody Mary, before enjoying a leisurely three course lunch in the restaurant. Or it could just mean an afternoon in front of the pub fire with a good book, a cheeseboard and a bottle of wine before heading back upstairs and using the open plan kitchens to cook up a feast of your own. 

Whatever it is you fancy doing with your time in Falmouth, we hope to see you at the Star & Garter soon!

Elliot Thompson Chef/owner and his wife Becca. 

Elliot’s love of food and cooking is exactly what led him to buy the Star and Garter in 2015, with the aim of turning a famous old Falmouth boozer into one of Cornwall’s premier food destination pubs.

The awards may have duly come, but the quest for perfection never ends and the owner/head chef remains determined to ensure the Star stays on top of its game, using only the best local produce to produce big, bold, flavours, inspired by countries spanning the Mediterranean.

With a nose-to-tail philosophy underpinning his ethos and a woodfired oven at the heart of the kitchen, Elliot’s passion lies in a back-to-basics approach that produces sumptuous dishes with nods to the likes of France and Italy to the west and Greece and Lebanon to the east.

‘Food is at its best when it’s not mucked around with and when you’ve got produce as incredible as we have in Cornwall, it’s hard to go wrong’ said Elliot.

‘Simplicity is at the heart of Mediterranean cooking and, done well, can lead to stunning results. We want to capture that spirit at the Star.’

Elliot cut his teeth as a chef in Falmouth’s Gylly Beach Café before heading to London and working in several top kitchens, including Hawksmoor. There was only one place he dreamed of ending up, though.

‘Cornwall is manna from heaven for any chef, with an array of produce that is among the best – in fact the best – in the world,’ said the chef-owner. ‘To be cooking it in a town that I love and in a pub that has become my home really is a dream come true.’
