The hotel restaurant, led by Head Chef Matt Haggath, focuses on locally sourced produce with flavour, texture and presentation being integral to all dishes.  Matt and his team have designed a menu around stories brought to fruition through carefully developed relationships with local suppliers, fishermen and farmers.  It’s a true celebration of Cornwall and offers an unforgettable culinary journey, with strong emphasis on seasonal flavours, keeping true to our sustainability ethos.

We offer a welcoming and lively atmosphere, with music playing, guests chattering, cocktails being created and a fantastic wine list to mull over and enjoy.
