Host your own private dinner party at the Scarlet.
Relax. Enjoy a great time with friends and family, and let us take the strain of menu planning, cooking, serving and washing up!
Our Private Dining service allows you to host your own dinner party – complete with your own private sea view terrace – with none of the hassle of entertaining at home.
We give you a call a week or so before hand, confirm numbers, and run through any particular food likes or dislikes, or special dietary requirements you have. Our chefs then create your menu for you on the day of your dinner according to the best fresh seasonal produce available to them on that day, and with your preferences in mind.
There’s no need to worry about pre-ordering your food, your menu typically includes meat, fish and vegetarian options and offers your guests a choice of:
- three starters,
- three mains, and
- three deserts.
Then all you need to do is show up, plug in your iPod, chill out and start welcoming your guests.
Our side of the bargain is to cook your food to perfection and take care of serving your guests, clearing and washing up. Fancy a wine flight to go with your meal? No problem…we love pairing great wine with great food.
Your side of the deal is to relax, soak up the Scarlet ambiance and stunning views and enjoy the great food, great wine and great company.
For groups of eight to twenty people £45.50 per person for three courses.

Fancy turning your dinner party into a sharing feast?
No problem. We can get rid of the restaurant menu all together and create – under your guidance – sharing platters of delicious seasonal food, like you would serve at a traditional ‘at home’ dinner party. Think Cornish crab, say, rare beef and mozzarella toasties, whole roast duck with glazed root veg, pork loin with cider potatoes or rich Cornish lobster… Then finish with an entire treacle tart or lemon meringue pie. – Simply call us on 01637 861800 to book.
