Falmouth- a paradise for walkers and gourmets

We have just been updating the Falmouth restaurant guide and Falmouth walks in preparation for this year's three MEI Conferences in May and June.

Indaba on the Beach
Visitors to Falmouth are often surprised by the quality and diversity of restaurants on offer in this small seaside town, most within easy walking distance from the conference hotel. My favourite (and Barbara's) is Oliver's Eatery on the High Street, although when I have guests from outside Cornwall, I favour Indaba on the Beach, which has great food but also amazing views across the bay of the 16th Century Pendennis Castle.

Falmouth's stretch of coastline between the estuaries of the beautiful Fal and Helford rivers is not to be missed and a short stretch of this coastal path is always a popular ending to the first day's presentations at the conferences.

The MEI blog postings on Falmouth and Cornwall provide a good guide to the region's history, geology, things to do etc, and if you are hoping to attend an MEI Conference in Falmouth in the future you may wish to bookmark this, as additions are constantly being made to it.


  1. I want to eat at Indaba on the Beach!

    Donna :)-

  2. Will take you and John there next time you are in Falmouth. Probably the best views from a restaurant that you will find anywhere. The food is pretty good too!!

  3. The Wheel House has the best seafood, fresh oysters, mussels and prawns :)

  4. It's certainly the place if you are a shellfish fan. There is no fish on the menu, but I had a great meal last night of scallops, mussels and prawns, washed down with very nice wine.

    Note, however, that it opens only Wednesday-Saturday, and payment is by cash only.
