Opening hours: 10am - 4pm, 7 days a week.

Free to enter

Our licensed café serves delicious, locally sourced food including tasty breakfasts, homemade lunches and specials for all ages, as well as freshly baked cakes and yummy Cornish treats. Enjoy a well-earned cuppa, beer or glass of wine on the terrace (a fantastic little sun trap) or on a comfy sofa next to the cosy wood burner.

There is no charge to enter the café and we have free parking, so pop in, relax and unwind. Afterwards, have a wander around our lovely gift shop.

Local produce

Our superb ham and sausages come from our local butchers in St Austell and our award winning pasties are made just up the road. We have fresh fruit and vegetables delivered daily. Cornish cheese, ice cream, beers, ciders and juices come from just on our doorstep.  Our cakes are freshly baked on the premises for you to enjoy with your morning coffee or Cornish Smugglers tea.

We are passionate about using the amazing products that Cornwall has to offer and we hope you will enjoy them too!

Picnic areas

There are plenty of places for a picnic at Wheal Martyn, just right if you want to relax, enjoy the nature around you and have a bite to eat. If you forget your picnic, or feel like eating in the grounds, then we sell a wide range of food that can be boxed up to take out.
