We had dinner here as part of the Gourmet Package stay at the Bedruthan Steps hotel, which shares ownership with the Scarlet. Because I am nosy we came good & early to have a look round the exceptional modern building. It is designed with huge care to make the most of its beautiful situation and I am sure will become...

My wife and I visited with some friends earlier this month and had a superb meal, cooked to perfection and served in a wonderful location. We liked the fact that there was enough space between the tables to ensure our conversation remained ours. Service was excellent. Will definately return and recommend an early reservation to get a table.

Loved the food and space and how organised and well trained the staff are, the only dislike, which is my personal opinion of dress code for men with shorts and flip-flops. But nothing to dislike of the restaurant. Fabulous choice to dine here!!!

We went with another couple and had a really lovely evening. The menu had four choices starters and mains(the vegetarian menu also). You can hop between the two menus and they recommend wines for each course which we went with. The ambience was good, one thing I would say is when we asked any questions the staff weren't very knowledgable... More

I'm happy that our breakfast made such a wonderful impression. It's often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I feel that our head chef really does it justice with the three courses of the freshest food, overlooking the ocean. The perfect way to start any day, be it exploring the coastline or relaxing at... More

A local couple looking forward to a treat, we left chuckling, most underwhelmed £140 lighter wondering what the fuss and great reviews were all about. I can't be bothered going into massive detail about the 'experience' but if your idea of 'fine' dining in a hallway with no atmosphere and bad lighting full of London types paying over the top...
