Having been in the bar downstairs a couple of times on previous visits to Helston, we finally tried the upstairs restaurant. What a change from the bar downstairs which has always struck us as boisterous and unwelcoming with a slight touch of nouveau riche attitude....More

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review :-) Saturday night was an unusually busy evening for us (So early on). We usually find the restaurant is empty before the noise of Saturday night begins. I hope we get to welcome you...More

Having recently moved into Helston, it's great to have such a lovely local place to go to eat. Sunday lunch is fabulous.

We went for a meal here on our last night. We were not disappointed. The food was great, the seafood linguine was amazing. Good food, presented well and good cocktails too, my partner loved the mojitos. The staff were welcoming and very friendly.

Really impressed with Sean the new chef. Visited with the family for the two for £20 roast with a bottle of wine and we were not disappointed. Incredible value and each element was really tasty. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. Will definitely be returning!

We've dined (and wined!) here many times and have never gotten around to review this great restaurant. The food is faultless! Always beautiful, well presented, great selection, & fresh! As a very particular vegetarian, the chef is always really lovely and willing to make alterations...More

Description
Eating in the bar offers simple classic food, such as Scotch eggs, Buttermilk chicken & avocado burger, Cornish steak sandwich, or a stunning Porthleven crab salad. Henlys serves an array of fresh, flavoursome dishes, from Seared Scallops sourced just up the road in Falmouth Bay, to delicious Pork Belly farmed right here on The Lizard Peninsula, not to mention the delicious Monkfish Curry adding a new Asian twist to the menu. Classic cocktails, local spirits and beers are served till late downstairs, where a team of expert mixologists are on hand to serve up anything from classic Mojitos to Henlys' own unique and tasty creations. Enjoy a relaxed lunch or dinner downstairs in the bar with friends or family or a more formal dining experience upstairs and watch your dish be prepared from the open kitchen. Henlys relaxed and friendly atmosphere is perfect for any occasion, from after work cocktails, dining with your family, or celebrating with friends.
