Senara Penzance

As one of the top restaurants in Penzance, Senara is renowned for its incredible food and service. It is ultimately a training kitchen for our Professional Cookery students and yet has not only received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence but also an AA star rating. In fact, the restaurant has been so successful since opening in 2012 that it’s been expanded to provide more dining space.

Dishes champion fresh local produce, so our menu changes on a daily basis to reflect what’s available. 

Senara offers incredible views of Mounts Bay and St Michael’s Mount, full wheelchair access and ample car parking adjacent to the restaurant.

We’re open from Monday to Friday for lunch from 12pm-2pm and on Friday evenings from 6pm-9pm. Advanced booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. Senara can also be booked for evening functions and private lunches for up to 140 guests.

For lunch, we offer daily changing takeaway street food boxes and our usual Senara bread and soup for £2.50.
