If you are in Cornwall, then the Mackerel Sky Seafood Bar in Newlyn, is the place to go for seafood that could not be more fresh or more local as it comes from the harbour opposite. It’s a conservatory on the corner as you drive through Newlyn on the way to Mousehole and you can’t miss it. Inside the furniture is simple, metal chairs and wide wooden shelves to eat at overlooking the road around two edges of the space and high tables with suitably high chairs and stools in the middle.
At one end is a small open kitchen with the names of the three chefs and the two serving staff on duty that day chalked up on a blackboard along with the daily specials. On our first visit, they were fresh local sardines with samphire clam and white wine sauce and smoked haddock and leek beignets with dill .
