The Muddy Beach Story

Returning to our heritage
Muddy Beach is a family business run by Christian Dann and his parents, Phil and Lisa. Lisa’s family, the Barnicoats, opened the very first Fish and Chip shop in Penryn, so Christian’s love of the restaurant trade is a trait passed on through several generations.

Christian has worked front-of-house for some of the most successful restaurants in the area, and when the opportunity arose to take on the lease for what was the popular ‘Miss Peapods’ café on Jubilee Wharf, the whole family jumped at the chance.

As a result, Muddy Beach has been born out of a passion for excellent food, quaffable wines and the sort of customer service that makes you feel part of the family!

Our Big Idea

What Muddy Beach is all about...
Our Big Idea is quite a simple one – to offer excellent food and drink in the sort of friendly, relaxed atmosphere that you’ll want to return to time and again. The name Muddy Beach comes from the local nickname for the beach opposite the café – a great place for wildlife and wading birds.

We run Muddy Beach as a family, and we want you to feel part of that family from the minute you walk through the door. It’s all about sharing great food, relaxing over a glass of wine or sipping a warming mug of our specialty coffee. Bring a group of friends or just bring the Sunday paper – it’s all about relaxing in a welcoming environment and enjoying those gorgeous river views!

The Muddy Beach Experience


The Café

Muddy Beach is a relaxed yet modern café / bar / restaurant. Inspired by Scandinavian interior design, we have used subtle hues of natural colours throughout the decor which has created a modern yet warm venue to relax in whilst having a glass of wine or a warming cup of coffee.

With beautiful panoramic windows overlooking the river, Muddy Beach is the perfect location to wind down and share a meal with friends and family.

We welcome everyone at Muddy Beach, including dogs. Our own Muddy Beach dog Eby will be around to help out and entertain our customers from time to time, and we have a special dog area where dog walkers can go to hang out in the warm after a walk along the riverbank!

Our Team

We are so pleased to have a stellar team of chefs and front-of-house staff. Alongside Christian and the rest of the management team, everyone at Muddy Beach will ensure all customers visiting Muddy Beach will have the best experience possible.
