Our Carnebo Barns are set just outside the village of Goonhavern
which is close to Newquay, and with our offices based in town where do we head
when our tummies are rumbling?
Gusto Del Bar
Serving hearty food out of a little white box that’s packed
to the brim is what Gusto’s is all about! #alwaysoriginal #gustodelibarnewquay

pretty much you name it Gusto’s has it! With new specials daily there is always
something new to choose from no matter what day of the week it is.

We’ve yet to try the new combo of wings and tings which is
deep fried chicken tossed in a banana bbq sauce, just feast your eyes on it… mmm, mmm, mmmmm that looks good!

burrito is to die for and the take away Sunday roast is immense. All in all a
MUST visit when heading into Newquay for the day!!
This new quaint cafe in the centre of Newquay is a great
little hideaway for homemade deliciousness. Opened in the Spring Cafe Blu
serves scrumptious cakes, mouth-watering soups, tasty sandwiches, coffee,
smoothies and milkshakes and is fast becoming a local hot spot.
A few of our favourites are the BLAT (a twist on the BLT) sandwich
served with kettle chips, the creamy sweet potato and roasted rosemary soup
with homemade garlic croutons or ciabatta bread and the vegan blueberry
If you’re a fan of a good milkshake the only way to go is
for the chocolate indulgence. Jam packed with a fresh baked brownie, two scoops
of vanilla ice cream, a huge spoon of Nutella topped with milk before being blitzed
and finished with lashings of squirty cream, it’s a little piece of heaven!
This Pan Asian restaurant comes from husband and wife team
Ryan and Kelly and was inspired from their years and love of travelling.
Always delivering on flavour Kahuna certainly does not
disappoint and has become a firm favourite with the locals, so much so they
needed to relocate to larger premises, which re-opened there doors earlier this
year. Kahuna is now located in the heart
of Newquay, right next to the train station and opens daily from 6pm.
Its mixture of Thai, Malaysian, Indonesian and Chinese plates
will tickle your taste buds, and we would recommend having at least one of each
of the desserts on offer!
Kahuna also offer a take away menu.
