We are a small but proud restaurant and bar located at the historical "Lookout", part of the Shirley Heights military complex. The Lookout affords a breathtaking view over English and Falmouth Harbours. The view from Shirley Heights Lookout is a perfect setting to watch a sunset. Behind the catchment on the highest point, 490ft (150m) above sea level, was the Signal Station from which a system of flags was used by day and guns by night to convey messages to St. John's by way of Great Fort George on Monk's Hill. Our opening hours are generally from 9am-6pm during which lunch is offered. We extend our hours to accommodate dinner on the weekend and also to host our exciting party labeled 'Sunday Sunset Barbecue' from 4pm-10pm. Our Seasonal Thursday Afternoon Barbeque runs from November until May.
