The Godolphin is a bustling, beachfront restaurant with 10 comfortable, en-suite rooms at the heart of Mount’s Bay.
The Godolphin is part of St Aubyn Estates, a family business with 5000 acres including the Home Farm, tenanted farms, residential cottages, six-holiday cottages and a building company.
The St Aubyn family have owned land in West Cornwall for over 600 years and James St Aubyn, 5th Lord St Levan and his wife Mary live in St Michael’s Mount which they run in partnership with the National Trust.
There has been an inn on the site of The Godolphin for over two hundred years. The redesign and renovation of the The Godolphin in 2014 was an integral part of the family’s commitment to Marazion and the town’s increasing vibrancy as a great place to live, work and visit.
Our stunning coastal location has inspired the design, bringing the natural beauty of the beach outside in. We are a busy and vibrant restaurant serving locally sourced food, and a perfect base for exploring West Cornwall. We’re directly opposite St Michael’s Mount, the iconic island fortress crowned by a medieval castle and surrounded by a sea that’s teeming with wildlife – look out for the dolphins!
Enjoy breakfast in the bay, a light lunch overlooking the beach, Cornish cream teas in the sun or hearty winter warmers while storm watching. Our buzzing restaurant will tempt you with an all-day menu focusing on local specialities made with seasonal and sustainable ingredients. Our generous breakfasts are served from 8am-11am, and our main menu is served from 12pm-9pm. There’s also a beach terrace for mid-morning drinks and afternoon sundowners, providing the ultimate spot to enjoy the view.
If you are seeking the Cornish beach lifestyle you won’t find a better location.
