Each Spring and Autumn our head chef, Tom Hunter, creates a very special five-course tasting menu showcasing the best of local, Cornish Autumn produce: freshly landed seafood, seasonal fruits and vegetables and locally reared meats. Each course has been paired with a selection of exceptional wines from small artisan producers.
For the first time this is now available to non-resident diners when booked in advance for £60 per person, or £105 per person with wine flight. The Autumn Tasting Menu is also part of the indulgent two-night Taste of Autumn Gourmet Break.
The Scarlet Restaurant is one of the best places in Cornwall to dine while watching the sun dip into the sea. Start your evening on the Retreat Terrace overlooking Mawgan Porth beach, enjoy a game of pool in the library, chill out in the bar and have dinner in our stunning sea and sunset view restaurant, either indoors or alfresco. Our menus change daily and with the seasons and feature the very best Cornish produce. Join us for an utterly relaxed and romantic evening.
Stay for two nights and sample our favourite most flavourful foodie experiences with our Taste of the Autumn gourmet break. This special break celebrates the amazing autumn produce that our suppliers bring us each day: freshly caught seafood, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and locally reared meats. Read More
