The Bay Restaurant offers 2 AA Rosette award-winning food showcasing the best in local Cornish produce overlooking the sparkling seas of Mount’s Bay.
The large patio doors and Edwardian architecture provide light and understated grandeur to dining inside, and outside you are protected by our sail shade and surrounded by a vista from the Med.
A constantly evolving and inventive menu has resulted in 2 AA Rosettes for nearly 20 years now. Our chef Ben Reeve is always seeking out seasonal ingredients from the best Cornish growers and picking the best catch from our fish merchants in Newlyn and St Ives.
Crab comes from The Real Cornish Crab Company, the epitome of food provenance, something close to our heart. Their Crab-Trax provides complete traceability from pot to platter. The Brian Etherington Meat Company supply locally reared meats prepared by their team of traditional butchers who endeavour to keep the skill alive through their Butchery School. Wines come from Nigel at Experience Wine in Lostwithiel, we love his focus - ‘sourcing exciting wines which have identity and heritage at a sensible price’.
Our Wine List includes celebratory and quaffable wines from around the globe including Champagne and Prosecco. For the real ale aficionados, St Austell Tribute and Harbourside Ale are served alongside Cornish cider and cocktails, which are happily sipped during cocktail hour.
Dietary needs are always taken into consideration so please let us know of any specific requirements, we are more than happy to talk you through our menu. Our Chef Ben Reeve and his kitchen team produce great gluten-free and vegetarian dishes which feature permanently on our menu.
