About Us

Lynda and Martyn Cripps have run the award-winning Longboat Inn in Penzance for over 20 years. During this time, many changes have been introduced, from refurbishments to fresh ideas for an evolving menu. We aim to be as eco-friendly as possible from low energy lighting to staff awareness, winning a National award in 2013.


Front of House

Ryan and the “front of house” team work hard to create a friendly experience for all and endeavour to make your visit as happy and relaxed as possible. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or relaxing with friends & family, we aim to create a friendly bar for all!



We are happy to offer a varied menu, using as many Cornish ingredients as possible. Some fresh produce is grown in our own kitchen garden from fresh herbs and salads, fruits for our home-made jams and desserts, and vegetables for your Sunday Carvery.

We also produce home-made gluten-free meals, vegetarian and vegan options. The chefs are proud to present home-made cakes and desserts, home-made fruit jams, and the fresh Newlyn fish dishes are delicious.

Please see menus and Specials Blackboards.



The housekeeping team aim to achieve a clean, comfortable, environment, with all that you will need to enjoy your stay. Environmental issues have always been important to us. We try to incorporate this into our daily routines. Your room will be serviced daily with regular deep cleaning and decorating.
