Senara Penzance

As one of the top restaurants in Penzance, Senara is renowned for its incredible food and service and yet it is also a classroom to our Professional Cookery Students. We base our teaching on locally sourced, seasonal produce and cook everything from scratch. Our students are taught by professional chefs with years of industry experience between them which is why our food and our service is of such a high standard.

We are delighted to announce the reopening of Senara Restaurant on 22nd September.

The restaurant will be open for lunch every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, with bookings from 12noon.

Dinner service will resume every Friday night from 24th September. Bookings for the 6 course taster menu will be taken from 6pm.
