Find this smart and comfortable restaurant in the popular Whitsand Bay Hotel and Golf Club.
The kitchen offers a modern menu mainly comprising of local produce, and the cooking is skilful. Our criticism might be that some dishes are overloaded with different flavour, and would be further improved if their main ingredients were less 'cluttered' by a multitude of flavours.
At dinner, starters such as 'Ham Hock, Pork Knuckle and Black Pudding with Potato Salad and Piccalilli'; 'Grilled Goats' Cheese with slow-roast Tomatoes, Pesto and Balsamic Vinegar' and 'Tian of hand-picked Cornish Crabmeat, Mango Salsa and a Citrus Dressing' set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Roast Fillet of Monkfish, wrapped in Parma Ham, with Parsley Mash, Orange-braised Chicory, Asparagus and a White Wine Sauce'; 'Roast Breast of Chicken, Dauphinoise Potatoes, Wild Mushrooms, Shallots and Creamed Lentils' and 'Cannelloni of Aubegine, Sweet Pepper and Buffalo Mozzarella with Tomato Coulis and Pesto Sauce'.
If you still have room, desserts such as 'Crème Brulée with a Sablé Biscuit and Orange Sorbet' and 'White and Dark Chocolate Torte, Chocolate Sauce and Chocolate Ice Cream' might tempt you. The more savoury toothed might succumb to their selection of West Country farm-house cheeses.
No jeans or T shirts in the restaurant.
There's a lighter bistro-style menu at lunchtime, served in the pleasant Eddystone Bistro.
