Perranthunoe is a small village with its own glorious stretch of beach. The Victoria Inn (and its pink facade) is at the heart of the village. A 12th century inn, it has recently changed hands and offers good food and an excellent Sunday lunch in traditional surroundings. Small beer garden/patio. http://www.victoriainn-penzance.co.uk/
There is a courtyard of small galleries and the Peppercorn Cafe which specialises in hearty breakfasts, sandwiches, snacks and cakes. It also serves the local Roskilly ice cream (made on The Lizard). The Cowhouse Gallery sells pots and sundries, including fresh bread. Andrew Giddens Open Studio/Gallery is in the courtyard and is open for customers to view an artist at work.
Just above the beach is the Cabin Beach Cafe offering food, drink, snacks open every day except Christmas and Boxing day. Dogs welcomed in the garden. Very popular with coastal path walkers and beach goers. http://www.thecabinbeachcafe.co.uk/
The parish church of Perranuthnoe is dedicated to St. Piran and St. Michael.
