You'll find this good restaurant in the comfortable Nare Hotel - it's actually their second string, less formal restaurant, but offers more flexibility than The Restaurant - and we feel the food is of a similar standard. You also have marvellous sea views.
The theme is that of the impressive 'J' class yachts of the 1930's - and there are teak rails, plus interesting relevant prints on the walls.
Unlike The Restaurant, you can order à la carte here - so just one course if you like, more if you prefer.
A winter snapshot brought 'Seared Cornish Scallops with Quince, Black Pudding, Crispy Sage and Caramelised Sherry Dressing'; 'Salad of Red-Legged Partridge with Pomegranate & Maple Sauce'; 'Crispy Goats Cheese with Caramelised Onions, Beetroot, Watercress & Walnut Dressing' and 'Confit of Terras Farm Duck Leg Croustillant with Plum Purée with Pickled Carrot Endive' amongst the starters.
'Loin of Cornish Lamb with Shoulder Sausage Roll, Butternut Squash Purée with Cabbage & Fondant Potatoes'; 'Turbot Fillet with Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Artichoke Purée, Caramelised Shallots, Ceps & Pancetta'; 'Grilled Portloe Lobster with Garlic & Herb Butter, Warm Potato & Mixed Leaf Salad' and 'Ruby Red Fillet with Mushroom Purée, Béarnaise Sauce Salad & Chips' on their list of starters.
Puds might be too tempting to miss, with perhaps 'Dark Chocolate Fondant with Pistachio Nuts & Bailey's Ice Cream'; 'Crème Brulée with Cranberry Compote, Satsums Sorbet & Shortbread' and 'Honey Parfait with Plum & Oatmeal Crumble' there to tempt you.
