Situated in a rugged and unspoilt natural bay, just two miles from Lands End, the restaurant enjoys commanding views of beautiful Sennen Cove.

Housed in the former Beach restaurant, this is a family friendly, informal beach side eatery. Passionate about seasonal produce, Ben Tunnicliffe proudly supports local farmers and fisherman, with the finest seasonal ingredients featuring on the menu.

With views looking out on to the beach and into the clear waters, Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove offers a variety of culinary delights.

The Restaurant & Terrace


From lunch, to afternoon tea and evening dining, the restaurant and terrace area is the perfect place to relax.

The Terrace offers a La Carte table service where you can order and enjoy everything from the restaurant menu, while taking in the views of Sennen Cove. The kitchen draws on the finest ingredients from sustainable and local sources to provide you with a menu that is always fresh. Expect the same level of friendly, attentive service you receive throughout the restaurant while taking advantage of the outdoor environment. The perfect place to relax, savour a taste of the best of the Cornish coast and relax and unwind.

The Restaurant offers an a La Carte dining venue with views of stunning Sennen Cove, or cosy up on the sofas storm watching with a hot drink and cake in front of the fire on a cold winters day – perfect for every occasion.

See Opening Times for service according to day and season.

The Surf Den

Our friends at Business Cornwall called it a “New Den for Ben”, and on Saturday 29th April just in time for summer, the team unveiled the new Den. An outdoor bar which coincided with the release of ‘Head Launcher’, an exclusive ale produced for the restaurant by Skinners Brewery.

Guests enjoyed a fantastic afternoon basking in the sun while enjoying resident DJ Samiad, eating freshly baked pizza cooked perfectly, and sampling a selection of drinks including the new ale ‘Head Launcher’. ‘Head Launcher’ was inspired by the Sennen Cove Lifeboat which plays a massive part in our local community.

The Surf Den is the area to come and enjoy fresh pizza made to order. It’s our self service area and drinks bar.

The Den brings the outside in. The bar top itself is styled as resin art – exactly like a surf board by local board shaper and builder Jackson Higgs of Bluff Longboards and constructed using surf board construction techniques and it’s simply quite amazing. The Den has been crafted carefully and has been a labour of love for all those involved.

We are so delighted with our new Den, and want to thank all those involved in making the Den possible and to our staff who worked hard in making this launch happen. A true team effort.
