Restaurant in Falmouth

Cooking what comes naturally

Great raw materials are what fuels us in the kitchen at Rastella restaurant. Artisan produce gets whipped, folded, cured, cut, smoked, poached, baked and seared by our precision team, to enhance the finest that Falmouth has to offer.

What grows together, goes together

We can probably all agree that Cornish food is some of the best in the country and we'd be crazy not to take advantage of that. Award winning Chef Patron Hylton brings unparalleled craftsmanship to the menu, working sympathetically with the finest ingredients the West Country has to offer to create inspired flavour combinations.   From churning our own butters to breads enhanced with pear and seaweed, you are sure to unearth treats at every corner of the menu.   

Book a table

Reserve your table for lunch, dinner, or afternoon tea at Merchants Manor


Showcasing some of the finest ingredients Cornwall has to offer, our award-winning AA 3 Rosette restaurant, Rastella, is home to exquisite dishes inspired by coast and country. From signature creations for the humble Cornish Mackerel to the secret sauce served with the Lamb from meadows overlooking Porthleven, we only craft with the best of the best. Join us for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (or perhaps even a spot of room service for that extra touch of luxury).

Bar & Lounge

Catch up over cocktails, read a book with a glass of wine by the fire, and soak up the relaxing atmosphere of our Bar & Lounge. Connected to the Rastella restaurant, you'll find the Bar & Lounge near the front entrance, ready to welcome you with luxuriously comfy sofas, a post-travel tipple, probably the best burger in town and a homely place to unwind.

Afternoon tea

If someone asked us to describe the afternoon tea experience at the Manor in three words we would say: delicate, indulgent, and delicious. As far as we're concerned that covers all of the best things in life. From delicately handmade sandwiches to macarons bursting with flavour, our afternoon tea is an experience to savour.

Our suppliers

What grows together, goes together. And what better way to ensure we use only the finest local produce than to team up with some of the best artisan producers in the area? From our very own lobster fisherman to our favourite forager, we not only ensure our ingredients are the best around, but that they are locally and responsibly sourced.
