This award-winning hotel, based on an old manor house, and facing the sea, holds a good restaurant and informal brasserie. The décor is is mix of the modern, almost kitsch, with the traditional - the latter includes the oak-panelled dining room.
A typical summer menu listed 'Shallot Tatin with Candied Walnuts & Cornish Blue Cheese'; 'Seared Looe Scallops with Smoked Haddock & Leek Chowder'; 'Dill-Cured Salmon with Pea Panacotta & Pickled Beetroot' and 'Ham Hock Terrine with Quail Egg Gribiche & Parma Ham Crackling' amongst the starters.
Possibly 'Seared Fillet of Sea Trout with Potato Terrine, Ruby Chard & Shellfish Foam'; 'Open Lasagne with Portabello & Wild Mushrooms, Baby Spinach & Cep Velouté'; 'Ballotine of Rabbit with Roast Garlic Mash, Crispy Leg, Braised Peas with Lettuce & Morels' and 'Creedy Carver Duck Breast with Duck Crepinette. Butternut Squash, Girolles & Red Wine Jus' to follow.
Those with a sweet tooth might like to finish with 'Peach Melba - poached peaches, fresh raspberries & iced raspberry parfait'; 'Dark Chocolate Fondant with Vanilla Ice Cream' and 'Coconut Pannacotta with pistachio cake, braised pineapple & passion fruit dressing' - whilst a selection of Cornish Artisan Cheese should satisfy any cheese lover.
A brasserie offers less ambitious dishes ranging from Homemade Burgers through Fritto Misto to Fillet Steak with Triple-Cooked Chips.
