From 9am Saturday 4th July

All of us here at Gylly Beach Café are pleased to be able to announce that we will be opening our doors once again from 9am on Saturday 4th July.

All the staff are tremendously keen to welcome you back into our ‘new’ café!!

New – because we have been making the most of our time in lockdown to give the café a much needed spring clean – all the outside furniture and terrace has been re-varnished, all areas have received a huge intensive deep clean and no wall has been missed by a paintbrush. Our Head Chef has been creating 3 brand new menus to tempt you with throughout the day – Breakfast, lunch and the return of the BBQ.

Also ‘NEW’ in that you will see – we have ensured that you will be welcomed back into as safe an environment as we possibly can for both you and our staff.

There will be a huge number of measures in place to achieve, some including…

• limited numbers inside and out  • screens at the counter

• table spacing  • hand sanitiser stations  • temperature checks on entry

We are following all the governments protocols to ensure your visit is both safe and an enjoyable one!  However we will also need YOUR help to achieve this. Please follow the staff instructions and please, wherever you can, follow the social distancing measures we have in place. With your help we can combat this terrible virus and get back to our new normal as quickly as possible!!

We look forward to seeing you on the 4th!!!


We are over the moon to let you know we won ‘Best Cafe’ in the Southwest as voted for by the readers of Food Magazine!! We are incredibly elated with such a prestigious award, it means so much to us, and furthermore we could not have done it without you! A huge thanks to all of those who voted for us, and those that have showed tremendous support over the years, thank you!

Gylly Meal Vouchers Available

Why not give someone a present you know they will enjoy… a meal at Falmouth’s award winning family run Gylly Beach Cafe. We offer meal vouchers from £5 upwards, which can be used any way you want. Whether it is coffee and cake with friends or a special sit down meal with your better half, a Gylly meal voucher ticks all the boxes.

We have a Sandchair!

Cornwall has some of the best beaches in the UK. One of the most difficult places to access if you have a physical disability is the beach, but here at Gyllyngvase Beach, Falmouth we can help.

The titanium SAND CHAIR is a specially designed wheelchair, which rely on huge inflated tyres to cope with the uneven beach terrain and can be pushed right into the water to allow swimming direct from the chair.

Give it a trial – see a member of staff at the Gylly Beach Cafe or make a booking:
