Dive in fork-first…

The restaurant

Dive fork-first into award-winning food, and feast your eyes on uninterrupted estuary views at the Water’s Edge. We’re all about cooking honest food using top-notch ingredients, served with a slice of charm and a dollop of the friendly Cornish hospitality our region is renowned for.

Our Falmouth restaurant’s kitchen team, headed up by Executive Chef Nick Hodges and Head Chef Bobby Southworth, are chopping, sautéing and serving up food, from dawn through ‘til dusk. Working like any well-oiled machine, the perfect combination of consistency and passion for exceptional food is at the heart of each and every dish. 

The menus at the Water’s Edge are seasonally-led, relying on local ingredients – from artisan cheeses and dairy products, to grass-fed beef from the neighbouring farms, homegrown organic vegetables, and seafood fished from the waters mere metres from your plate. Every component is thoughtfully chosen to showcase the very best of the south west. 

Honest food, cooked with soul

If you’re looking for a Falmouth restaurant by the sea, the Water’s Edge offers sweeping panoramas of the harbour, with dreamy views right across to Flushing. Relax and soak in the beautiful smells, tastes and delicious vistas as you tuck into something handmade, heartfelt, and unforgettable.

Whether it’s a gathering with old friends whilst grazing in the sunshine, an intimate dinner for two on your Cornish escape, or whiling an afternoon away with scones and tea, something mouth-watering is waiting at the Water’s Edge.

Our Executive Chef Nick Hodges

Nick, born in Falmouth, has been cooking since an early age. Having worked with legendary chefs and personalities such as Keith Floyd and Jean Christophe Novelli, he returned to his home town after time working and travelling around the world.

In 2014, he joined The Greenbank as Head Chef, refocusing the menu to highlight Falmouth seafood and Cornish produce. The Greenbank was soon awarded two AA rosettes and the re-opening of the famous Working Boat pub soon followed, which delighted local residents and visitors alike.

Our Head Chef Bobby Southworth

Bobby is also born and bred in Falmouth, and proudly flies the Cornish flag. Bobby (as he constantly reminds Nick!) is the younger chef, who took control of the Water’s Edge in 2017. He is a true foodie and has patiently learnt his craft in Cornwall before stepping into the Head Chef’s role. Bobby brings a fresh, vibrant and modern approach to The Greenbank that complements Nick’s classical French experience beautifully.

Our Falmouth restaurant team is made up of fifteen chefs and porters; each individually a vital link in the chain work. Their incredible hard work makes everything that leaves our kitchen the very best.
