As part of the Taste of the Spring gourmet break our head chef, Tom Hunter, has created a special five-course tasting menu showcasing the best of local, Cornish spring 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.
The menu will change each day based on what is fresh and seasonal, however below is a sample menu to give you a flavour:
