Restaurants for Christmas Day in Cornwall

Decorating the tree. Shopping for presents. Making Christmas cookies. The hassle of preparing and cooking up a huge Christmas spread. The holidays can be a stressful time when there’s a lot to get done. So if you feel you can’t muster up the energy to prepare a banquet, don’t worry. Head to a restaurant this Christmas and let someone else do the cooking (and the washing up!). Simply enjoy good food, relax and spend time with your loved ones – that’s what Christmas is all about after all.

Take a look at the restaurants in Cornwall which are serving up Christmas Day meals. Remember to secure your booking early!
