Drinks on the terrace before a fabulous three course meal, coffee in the library and a leisurely round of pool? Whether you join us for lunch with friends or a sunset supper you can make the Scarlet your home from home.

The Scarlet Restaurant gazes out over Mawgan Porth beach to the sea beyond, it’s the perfect setting to watch the waves, the weather and the sunset.

We have been serving the freshest, locally sourced food since 2009. Cooked in a modern European style with Cornwall at it’s heart, our menu’s change each day and with the seasons. We pride ourselves on working with the most amazing suppliers the county has to offer and we’re proud how blessed Cornwall is with innovative, organic and sustainable growers, fishermen and farmers.

The Scarlet’s philosophy is to truly care for our guests as individuals, so if you have a dietary requirement, please let us know and we’ll do everything to make sure you have options to choose from. As a sustainable venture, we recognise the importance of a vegetarian diet so those who don’t wish to eat meat will find themselves well catered for.
