The Saracen’s Plate WAS a relaxed and welcoming place to come and eat healthy, nourishing food with friends and family. Or just to hang out and read a book over a delicious Olfactory coffee made right here in Penryn.
We had gigs on most Friday and Saturday nights.
We ran community clubs from yoga to children’s craft sessions and made the space available to all groups.
We were not welcome by everyone in our community and it is with regret that we have had to close.
We are now closed until a new venue can be found.
