An excellent gastropub (the name meaning 'settlement above the trees'), hidden away in a remote wooded valley, close to the Helford River.
The evening-only restaurant, with well-spaced tables and a friendly bistro atmosphere, offers a modern menu using as many local products as possible.
Expect the likes of 'Seared local Scallops in Crème Fraîche with Sweet Sushi Ginger and Egg Linguine'; 'Falmouth Mussels with Garlic, White Wine and Cream' and 'Beetroot and Walnut Salad with Vulscombe Goats' Cheese' among the starters.
'Marinated Cornish Rib Eye Steak with Apple-Glazed Shallots in a Filo Basket, Port Sauce and Sauté Potatoes'; 'Confit of Pork Belly with Bramley Apple Mash and Onion Sauce' and 'Courgette and Rosemary Pancakes stuffed with Cornish Feta, Cashew Nuts, Spinach and Smoked Cherry Tomatoes, with Garlic and Rosemary Velouté' among the mains.
Simple desserts might include 'Valrhona Chocolate Pot' or 'Green Apple Sorbet with Lavender Shortbread'.
