Welcome to Newlyn

The old Cornish staple, the pilchard, has recently received a rebrand as the ‘Cornish sardine’ in an effort to boost consumer appeal (it’s not entirely sleight of hand: pilchards are in fact simply juvenile sardines). Although the town’s last pilchard cannery closed in 2005, ending a tradition stretching back over three centuries, Newlyn still has many suppliers where you can pick up fish literally straight off the boats.
